Laws of Illusion by Sarah McLachlan CD Review
With a history of twenty years of studio and live albums all gold, platinum, or multi-platinum, Sarah McLachan’s comeback studio album, Laws of Illusion, deserves a listen. The new material has been seven years in the making.
Canadian messo-soprano McLachan emotional ballads reveals both love from both sides and herself. It is a good bet that this Grammy Award singer-songwriter has come up with another winner.
Wait until you hear its ten new songs and two previously released ones. Here is the track listing.
2. ILLUSIONS OF BLISS
3. LOVING YOU IS EASY
6. RIVERS OF LOVE
7. LOVE COME
8. OUT OF TUNE
10. DON?T GIVE UP ON US
11. U WANT ME 2
12. BRING ON THE WONDER
I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of the album to preview. I discovered Sarah McLaghlan is a poet who artfully sets her words to music.?Illusions of Bliss is a semi-autobiographical reflection on her own life experiences. Forgiveness is her observations of life set in verse. Some listeners will prefer her rendition of Forgiveness and its lost relationships beginning unaccompanied then building to a musically complex instrumentally backed end. Accompanied by her guitar, McLachan’s first released single Loving You Is Easy with its thrill of new love is upbeat. That piano basis makes it work. Diverse songs, appealing. I can’t wait to hear more.
Laws of Illusion is presently available for for purchase on Amazon and iTunes and other digital providers. The deluxe version will include along with the twelve tracks some bonus items. Laws of Illusion officially went on sale June 15, 2010.
