Sarah McLachlan CD Review

Sarah McLachlan is a musician who has been around for a while. And her music has been able to stand the test of time. I still sigh when I hear her songs come on the radio or TV. So I was very excited to be able to try out her newest CD Laws of Illusion.

Laws of Illusion by Sarah McLachlan was just released on June 15th. The album's first single "Loving You is Easy" has already been on the Top Ten on Adult Alternative radio. And this is Sarah's first album in 7 years. I think it was worth the wait if you're a Sarah McLachlan fan.

The album is full of fun, easy listening music. It has several slow ballads as well as a few upbeat tunes. I really enjoyed the song "Loving You is Easy." The other songs on the album include: "Awakenings," "Illusions of Bliss," "Loving You is Easy," "Changes," "Forgiveness," "Rivers of Love," "Love Come," "Out of Tune," "Heartbreak," "Don't Give up on Us," "U Want Me 2," and "Bring on the Wonder."

Sarah will be performing at the historic all-female Lilith Fair festival that is returning this summer. So, be sure to check her out at her other scheduled events this summer:

I like Sarah McLachlan too, but I may wait until my birthday (in five months) and see if I can get the CD then. :-)
