    Your performance at the Juno’s last night was amazing as always. After so many years, I am still a fan xo!

    My Favorite songs from sarah are written about humanity and a general emotional topic. I really hope she returns to her older style of writing like that of the solace and fumbling albums and encrypt the message of the song a little more instead of being overly direct like her Laws of Illusion CD. Although the Laws CD is great, it only has so much re-play potential. Hold on, Path of thorns, Fumbling towards estacy, Adia, Sweet surrender and many other older original tracks never get old because the meaning of the song is so broad and can be interpreted in many different ways so people get from what it what they need at the time. So although her content and song library has grown, i still find myself gravitating towards her older material that was less personal and more about life lessons and included more play on words with more colorful words.

  3. What can I say to the woman that has provided pieces to the soundtrack of my life – whether it be in the moments of joy or sadness, I have found solace in your words and peace in the melodies. There have been countless memories that I have built over a lifetime that inevitably are linked back to something you sang. So, thank you for being an invisible guide during the happy times and a shoulder to cry on during the worst. You are amazingly gifted woman – thank you for sharing your soul. I am clearly anticipating seeing you again when you land in Los Angeles – as one of my favorite memories was seeing you a couple years ago and in taking questions from your audience – some lucky dude just asked for a hug … and you called him up and gave it to him! Still kicking myself for not thinking of it first! Congratulations on the new album and tour – and thanks again.

    First congrats on your doctorate degree! I have been following your musical career back in 1988. At that time ironically, I was working at Tower Records in L.A, Cal we all knew you where destine for super stardom for your voice was so unique and your lyrics beautifully written. I was thrilled to see such a talented artist as yourself get the recognition you so rightly deserve. Finally, I was thrilled I got to meet you in Portland, Oregon in 1992 and will see you live 2014 again in Oregon. I highly recommend seeing Sarah live she sounds even better than the studio recording such as the song called Ben’s song will always bring me to tears. This collection of songs or any new album you create will be received with open ears and a warm heart. Thanks Sarah for sharing and contributing so much to our world….Peace to you and your family.

    Any time I am at a stage in my life when I need to find myself and re-connect, you’re all I can listen to. You bring peace to my heart, and into my life. For so many years you’ve been my sanctuary, my rock, and I hope you stop sharing your talent. It saves so many of us. xoxo

    Your song “DRIFTING” helped me get through the death of my brother…it was as if you wrote it for me to give to him. I don’t know what inspired your words for the song, I can only hope it wasn’t something tragic. You have the voice of an angel…

    Sarah is truly one of the most amazing singers and song writers of our time. In a world of music that is “created” in studios and everything sounds the same Sarah is a beautiful reminder of the art and talent that still can exist. My wife and I see her every chance we can in concert….. Sarah is actually as good, if not better, to experience live. She truly has the voice of an angel.

    Ralph love that list! Sarah words can not describe what, how, when, where and why your music takes me to places I can not longer visit or ever been for that matter! I love your spirit and can feel your soul in all your music. She is my no. 1 female singer as well. My list as follows:

    Number # 1-Sarah McLahlan
    Number # 2- (very close) Natalie Merchant
    Number #3- Alanis Morrissett

    This album is the complete Sarah thus far!

    Hey there Ralph here from PA. USA,

    I’ve heard better !!! Just kidding around. Sarah is one of the Greatest Female singers around today. She is my no.1 female singer and tops my list as follows:

    Number # 1- Sarah McLachlan
    Number # 2- Kate Bush
    Number # 3- Tori Amos
    Number # 4- Loreena Mckennitt
    Number # 5- Enya

    Sarah is very inspiring to listen to her voice and it just takes you to another place of “Peace and
    Wonderful Dreams “. When she sings the words, they just melt into my head and brings a flowing sense of calmness to my soul. That’s the best way of explaining it. I really fell in love with her voice from the first album and when I heard her on MTV years ago. Thanks Sarah for making my life worth something and have meaning. Never stop the music. Remember Sarah that no matter what your Fans are here for you in good times and Bad. Love ya Sarah. Peace to all Sarah Fans.

    This album, to me, is a collection of “All that is good from Sarah McLachlan”. Songs that have moved my soul to maturity. Allow the lyrics and Sarah’s gifted voice to guide you to see the Universe in a way that is missed by so many.
    Sarah, please keep making beautiful music and making a difference.

    The Album is a memory to albums you have made. It is an inspiration to my daughter Sarah and I, that we are learning to play guitar. I have wanted to learn to play guitar for a long time and even bought your guitar music that i will learn to play. I met you in Winnipeg and look forward to seeing you again soon. Your music takes my stress away. Your voice is amazing and I look forward to when the new album comes out. Thank you for being a huge part of my life.

    Не хочу показаться невеждой, тем не менее…. Голоса исполнителей на незнакомом мне языке, я расцениваю, как музыкальный инструмент. Голос-инструмент. В этом отношении, Сара, великолепно владеет своим инструментом. Если ещё учесть, что она сама пишет слова, музыку… то она молодец трижды!
    Или, просто… умница! С уважением отношусь к её творчеству.
