As always, producer Pierre Marchand helms both of those new songs, and his presence throughout this compilation -- not to mention McLachlan's steady songcraft -- helps make Closer a consistent, unified work. Casual fans will find what they need in the regular 16-track version, while diehards might want to look at the two-disc version, which includes additional songs and several remixes.

    Closer: The Best of Sarah McLachlan

    This has the song she sings on TV to muster support for the Humane Society (Angel). Love it! She has a wonderful clear voice and worth the time listening to.

    “Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan” is an assembly of songs that meaningfully define her career. For instance, “Posession”,”Adia”, “Angel”, and “I Will Remember You” are among some of the well-known tracks featured in this cd. “Building A Mystery” and “Sweet Surrender” are two of my favorite songs on this cd.“Closer: The Best of Sarah McLachlan” is a good collection for those who like soft rock greatest hits cds and/or at least three of Sarah McLachlan’s songs.
