Overview

It's understandable that you might have OD'ed on Sarah McLachlan. She's everywhere -- radio, VH1, and all over the glossies -- but a dose of Mirrorball just might cure you. On her first full live disc, the Canadian superstar is given more room to play, and she delivers her songs from Fumbling Towards Ecstasy and Surfacing with new enthusiasm. As pleasing as the hits "Building a Mystery," "Aida," and "Angel" are, it's the older material that provides the sweetest treats of the package: This version of "Hold On" makes the line "This is going to hurt like hell" sound more delicious than "Ice Cream," while "Possession" is boosted into a more rollicking adventure than the original. The undeniable pinnacle of this set, however, is the gorgeous rendering of "I Will Remember You," often overlooked as one of McLachlan's best tracks.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Kurutz
Released at the front end of 1999's Lilith Fair, Mirrorball is a take-home sampler of the live performances that catapulted Sarah McLachlan into the modern rock stratosphere. Over half of the album's 14 songs are radio hits (including four of the first five), proving McLachlan's worth as a pop songstress bar none, but also hinting at an underlying stagnation in her recent musical output. Though fans of McLachlan and folks who missed her Lilith performances will likely enjoy Mirrorball, it's a little too by-the-book to win any converts or please critical listeners. There is little dialogue between songs, for example, and the sound quality is so pristine that if it weren't for the occasional hoot and holler from the audience, one would never know it's a live album.
