    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.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (12/25/97, p.164) - "...McLachlan favors maternal patience over bombshells, whipsered intimacy over a quick payoff. Her songs are cast in deep-blue tints and gray-day moods; she soaks her voice in warm echo..."
    Entertainment Weekly (7/25/97, p.70) - "...Her best tunes recall the sinewy clarity of early Joni Mitchell....Never have McLachlan's recordings sounded so dense and alive. Yet the album's centerpiece remains the star's voice--an instrument rich and knowing enough to redeem even the poor souls her lyrics embrace." - Rating: B
