Bloom: Remix Album

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Since she had good luck -- both artistically and commercially -- with 2003's Remixed, it's not altogether surprising that Sarah McLachlan would return to that well for another cup of artistic inspiration. While her first disc of reimagined versions of her songs had something of a uniform feel to it, Bloom blossoms in several different directions, lending a mixtape-like feel to the proceedings. The most intriguing track is the disc's sole from-scratch recording, "Just Like Me," on which Black Eyed Peas' majordomo Will.I.Am builds an unabashedly infectious track that's topped by McLachlan and rapper DMC trading verses culled largely from the Harry Chapin classic "Cat's ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Since she had good luck -- both artistically and commercially -- with 2003's Remixed, it's not altogether surprising that Sarah McLachlan would return to that well for another cup of artistic inspiration. While her first disc of reimagined versions of her songs had something of a uniform feel to it, Bloom blossoms in several different directions, lending a mixtape-like feel to the proceedings. The most intriguing track is the disc's sole from-scratch recording, "Just Like Me," on which Black Eyed Peas' majordomo Will.I.Am builds an unabashedly infectious track that's topped by McLachlan and rapper DMC trading verses culled largely from the Harry Chapin classic "Cat's in the Cradle." Several of the mixers called in to chop and channel earlier tunes take a similarly pop-centric approach -- notably Tom Middleton, who adds a late-'80s sheen to "Vox." Bloom isn't, however, all about simple head-bobbing. Reggae legends Sly & Robbie take "Train Wreck" on a detour through the land of dub, giving it a down-tempo groove that's at once thickly enveloping and island-breeze light. Talvin Singh extends the travelogue by layering "Answer" with sitar and tabla -- accoutrements that prove perfectly suited to enhancing the original tune's cleansing feel. There are certainly a passel of high-energy mixes -- Junkie XL's "World on Fire" is as highly caffeinated as a double espresso -- but Bloom is one of those remix discs that aim for the head as much as the hips, connecting on both counts.
All Music Guide - Eric Schneider
The second McLachlan collection devoted entirely to reinterpretations of her songs, Bloom draws primarily from 2003's Afterglow for source material. Here Junkie XL renowned for his raucous take on Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" adds an ominous tone to "World on Fire," and Thievery Corporation gives "Dirty Little Secret" a minimal backing of shuffling beats and entrancing ambient textures. Every track on Bloom manages to offer something that makes it notably different from its original, with the only constant being McLachlan's emotive and immediately distinctive voice. Most charmingly, reggae legends Sly & Robbie transform "Train Wreck" into a spare, shuffling R&B number, and Talvin Singh works traditional Indian instrumentation into "Answer," showing that the possibilities for reworking McLachlan's spacious tunes are nearly endless.
