Sarah McLachlan - Bloom Remix Album Review

by Morley Seaver

.
Sarah McLachlan, the goddess from Vancouver, British Columbia has just released a remix collection of ten of her songs. They're assembled by quite a few high profile names, most notably Junkie XL, Thievery Corporation, and Sly & Robbie. Six of the songs are taken from her latest studio effort, Afterglow, two from Fumbling Towards Ecstasy and one stretches back to her debut Vox. There's also a song by DMC featuring Sarah and it's mixed by will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas.

I don't know what the purpose of this record is aside from being of interest to Sarah fanatics. There are some interesting ideas here. "Ice" is lush and stately but hardly fits a dance club roster. "Just Like Me", the DMC cut is an unusual piece that has Sarah singing the chorus of "Cat's in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin around some verses by the rapper. Then there's something like "Vox" one of my favourite Sarah songs. Here it's rendered completely and utterly annoying by the Tom Middleton mix.

I'm a big-time Sarah fan (mostly of the earlier stuff) but I just have to question who needs to have this.
