Summing up the first 15 years of her recording career, CLOSER: THE BEST OF SARAH MCLACHLAN is a near perfect overview of the Canadian singer-songwriter. Over the course of 27 songs on two CDs, the anthology provides all McLachlan's best known songs and a number of more obscure fan favorites in neatly chronological order. Chronicling her rise from a Kate Bush-influenced singer-songwriter to the creator of the Lilith Fair generation to her more recent status as a much beloved and influential figure for a new generation of female singer-songwriters, CLOSER: THE BEST OF SARAH MCLACHLAN is hard to improve upon. The set includes all five of McLachlan's Billboard Top 40 hits, including the Top 5 smashes "Angel" and "Aida." There are also two new songs, "U Want Me 2" (available here in two different mixes) and "Don't Give Up On Us."
