Title - 'Mirrorball: The Complete Concert' (Legacy)
Artist - Sarah McLachlan
Well, needless to say, this concert CD is awesome. It is taken from the last night of the tour in Portland, Oregon. Unlike the previous Mirrorball CD which took songs recorded throughout the tour, this is all one show. I believe it's the same show taped for the DVD. It's great to finally get all the songs that were missing from the original CD, like "Vox" and "I Will Not Forget You", to name a couple. The song 'Possession' sounds 100% better live than it ever did on "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy." It sounds funky and Sarah and the band rocks out. 'Hold On' and 'Good enough' are just impossible to beat when compared to the studio recordings. One of my favorites is 'Ice Cream.' It is such a sweet, but simple love song. 'Angel' and 'I Love You' still leave chills up my spine when I listen to them. Sarah channels such emotion into her voice. I don't like how the tracks are not seamless, as each track begins from complete silence to a fade in to a fade out and silence between songs. When I buy a concert CD, I like the seamless transision between songs. It feels like you're experiencing the concert again. The seamed songs do take away from the recording, but only barely. Overall, this CD is a great release and worth every penny.
