Sarah McLachlan 


Published November 13, 2003.Sarah McLachlanAfterglow(Nettwerk)Afterglow is an intimate walk through the last six years of Sarah McLachlan’s life. The safe direction of producer Pierre Marchand partnered with McLachlan’s familiar, haunting vocals reveal the decision to remain on the Surfacing plateau. There are similar bursts of creativity here, like the transient guitar track in “Time” and the dreamy “Perfect Girl,” but it’s tainted by formulaic songs. Afterglow is a transitional reflection, one that falls flat as a mediocre pop album. An unfulfilling return.—Andrea Somers
