Sarah McLachlan: Laws Of Illusion Music Review

Sarah McLachlan has released her latest album “Laws of Illusion”, which is an interesting, intriguing, and intimate album. Starting with the theme of the album “Laws of Illusion” it is a clear indication of the albums mood and theme.

 

The albums theme is love, lost, forgiveness, healing, and learning to love again.

 

SarahMcLachlan_LawsOfIllusion_cover Laws of Illusion has a great marketing style, which truly reflects the album, its intimate songs and mood. The album art of Sarah sitting on a quarter moon in the sky with stars all around is a wonderful picture.

 

One look at the picture, and you would first think it is a children’s album, or fairy tale, but in fact it is a fairy tale album, but for adults.

 

This is one of Sarah McLachlan’s most personal albums to date, that shines on her raw emotions of love, happiness, and reality of life. This album is a “women in music” kind of album, which describes a woman’s feelings.

 

Songs on the album like Awakenings, Illusions Of Bliss, and Rivers Of Love give the listener the emotions, beauty of the melodies, and the hope of love to come. Sarah does a great job at crafting her songs and melodies, and along with her unique and recognizable voice, which undeniably make them Sarah McLachlan songs.

 

All the songs on the album are pretty much like a theme album, and a real life fairy tale.

 

Amazingly “Laws Of Illusion” is an album that kind of goes back to her roots in music, at the same time is very consistent with her singing and melody, but also moves forward, as she has matured in her lyrics.

 

Sarah McLachlan sings songs about what we all go through, love, love lost, the pain and agony, as well as moving forward and hoping for a new love and life.

 

Laws of Illusion contain 12 songs, which are remarkably great songs.

 

Track Listing of Laws of Illusion:

  1. Awakenings
  2. Illusions Of Bliss
  3. Loving You Is Easy
  4. Changes
  5. Forgiveness
  6. Rivers Of Love
  7. Love Come
  8. Out Of Tune
  9. Heartbreak
  10. Don’t Give Up On Us
  11. U Want Me 2
  12. Bring On The Wonder

Sarah McLachlan is one of Canada’s most underrated Divas, and is often over looked since everyone is fixed on Celine Dion, (which in respect to her is fine) but Sarah is the real diva here.

 

Laws Of Illusion is a great album, and is sure to please all of Sarah’s fans. With Lilith Fair around the corner, the songs on her album will reflect women in music on the upcoming tour.

 

With over 40 million albums sold worldwide, countless charities she promotes, and Lilith Fair, there is only one thing you can say about Sarah McLachlan, Brava to a Diva.

Absolutely beautiful CD. Too many favorites in this one. I think this is Sarah's best work. Not only the singing, but the songwriting is exceptional. Truely gifted performer.

Great review! This is undeniably a Sarah album. You can tell she's grown in the last 7 years. I knew I would love most of the songs when the previews were made available.. with a few more listens, I think it could surpass Surfacing and Afterglow for me.

Thank you everyone for your comments. Sarah does have a gifted voice, very soft and emotional, and she can hit high notes like any Diva, but with feeling. I agree with you all, this is her best album yet.

I have played this cd non stop since I bought it. Absolutely love Out of Tune, Illusion of Bliss, Forgiveness & Love Come, love it...
I kick myself for missing her on her Lilith Fair stop in Portland, but hope she will consider a solo tour, especially featuring songs from this new album, it is wonderful.

Hi everyone... hello from Costa Rica. I just bought two day ago the CD (Deluixe edition) & I listen it a dozen times & i watched the DVD a lot of times too...

This album have the sign of Sarah in everiwhere.. the music, the lirycs.. have the spirit of the wonderfull & creative soul of one of the best composer in the world... i'm agree this have a little turn, cause have a little less sadness in it, but it is great cause in every kind of love, we have to receive hope and sadness, pain and relief...

Have hooked with "Loving you is easy", "Forgiveness" & "Love come" (the "surprise" version) and i have it in my mind, hum it over & over & over...

I was lucky cause was the last one in the store! . In the most important newspaper here in Costa Rica the past saturday 3 of july, publish one article about Laws of Illusion, this was great for us -the fans of Sarah- her in my country, cause we know we are not few, but never think we were so many!!! (it makes me have little hope, maybe someday she comes here to one concert :D )

Thx Sarah for another piece of your soul, that brings us a lot of love, ease & self-understandig of our felling, helped for your song... Thank you a lot for that.

Jorge
San José, Costa Rica
