Closer, But Not Close Enough

The choices here should have been narrowed down to one disc. Two discs at the hefty price of $16.99 is just gratuitous. Sarah's inspiration has been lost since her heyday in the 90's. Her latest single, and the singles released from her last studio album in 2003, "Afterglow," are pale attempts to recycle the tired Lillith Fair soft-chick rock formula that revolutioned the world of female musicianship 10+ years ago. Now what we're left with are vanilla mood pieces that don't sound as poignant as they once did, but rather, soporific. And aside from the "Surfacing" singles, most of these haven't aged well. Sarah has a wonderful voice and is an excellent pianist, but her songwriting abilities are limited and after her breakthrough in 1998 she's never managed to expand on her sound in any way, shape, or form. Most listeners will grow weary of this before getting to the second disc so I wouldn't recommend this collection to the casual fan, and I'd even encourage the hardcore fan to avoid this and buy her first few studio albums instead.

Get the new songs . .skip the rest

All I have to say is "Thank you i-Tunes for not making the new tracks 'album only'". Nuff said.

Thank you ,

Two new songs

Sarah will always reign supreme! Thank you for the two new songs! We are all hoping that you are able to move past your personal tragedy and start the healing process. First!!!
