Nettwerk Records Canada | July 15, 1997 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Although they had to wait three years for an album with all-new material, Sarah McLachlan fans will agree that Surfacing was worth the wait. As if hinting at her absence, the disc opens with the lovely, mid-tempo "Building a Mystery," a song with less dramatic delivery but with no less dramatic effect. After the swirling "I Love You," a track from past days, "Sweet Surrender" picks up the pace, like "Into the Fire" does on Solace. Even while this song bops along, the singer's voice strikes such a sombre note that your body moves and your heart swells. On top of the stellar musical accomplishments, you'll garner wonderful insight into her inspiration thanks to the interviews and videos on the enhanced portion of the disc.

Editorial Notes

SURFACING is an Enhanced CD containing both a full audio program as well as multimedia computer files. Personnel: Sarah McLachlan (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano); Brian Minato (electric guitar, bass); Michel Pepin (electric guitar); Yves Desrosiers (guitar, lap steel, bass); Ash Sood (piano, drums, percussion); Pierre Marchand (keyboards, bass, percussion, drum programming, background vocals); Jim Creeggan (acoustic bass). SURFACING was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Pop album. "Building A Mystery" won the 1998 Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. "Last Dance" won the 1998 Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. "Adia" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. On her fifth album, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan returns with a simpler collection of songs which quietly explore the darker aspects of human nature. SURFACING is a group of straightforward songs which get right to the point, both musically and lyrically, dealing with such heavy topics as faith, life and death in an appealingly accessible way. McLachlan's unmistakable soaring voice displays its usual angelic tones and amazing versatility, abetted by the familiar, assured stamp of longtime producer and collaborator Pierre Marchand, making SURFACING McLachlan's most mature album yet. Right from the start, with the anthem-like pop tune "Building a Mystery," McLachlan sets the tone, simultaneously shadowy and calm. SURFACING is an introspective musical landscape, a tight collection of thought-provoking songs from one of today's most talented artists.
