This Is Sarah's best Album. Judging by music prices these days, its hard to believe you can get so many of her beautiful songs on one disc. The good songs on "Surfacing" are "Building a Myster" "I Love You" "Sweet Surrender" "Adia" "Do what you have to do" "Witness" "Angel (absolutely beautiful song, what made her my favorite singer in the world, with a little help from her lastest single "Fallen"). So basically 7 out of 10 songs are absolutely fantastic. I bought this cd because i had heard "Fallen" on the radio, liked it, and bought "Afterglow". Then i saw this one on the shelf one day, and bought it to without having heard any of the songs first. It is a masterpiece. One of the songs, "Adia" i had heard when i was younger and had always hoped to hear it on the radio again, at the time i wasn't ablt to identify it, the singer, or the song. I even had the lyrics messed up in my memory, but it was the rhythm of the song that i had remembered for 6 years. Of course i was overjoyed to find this long lost song, and from then on Sarah has been my absolute favorite singer (I even like her more than Alanis Morrissette, and you have to be pretty good to outdo the gorgeous Alanis). I repeat, this is her best CD. This and "Afterglow". "Fumbling Towards Ecstacy" really isn't that good, i don't know why everybody says its her best, and why it sold the the most copy of any of her cds, but no matter what she comes out with next, i will enjoy it to the fullest. The song "Adia" is about wanting to please everybody, and having to let people down in order to take care of yourself. The song "Building a Myster" (the second best on "Surfacing" second to you know what)is about wanting to hide who you truly are and paint yourself to be something else. The song "Angel" (if your a guy, this song will seduce you) is about celebrities who have drug addictions. Those are the three best, but like i said, they're all excellent. I can rightfully call this the best CD ever created. I don't care if Michael Jackson holds the spot for the most cds ever sold, Sarah is the best. She is walking talent. She actually plays Acoustic Guitar and piano (unlike some people in the music industrie who can't even sing let alone play an instrument, hint hint, Ashley). Plus, she rights her own songs. This is one of the most amazing things about her. Not only does she have an amazing voice, she delivers top notch lyrics to every song. This is a masterpiece. She is a masterpiece. (Don't worry, i'm not going to start stalking her). "writing songs is kind of like extracting blood from a rock, it doesn't come naturally and its a lot of work" -Sarah MclachlanWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
