Sarah MclachlanWith The Toronto Symphony OrchestraOn June 15, 2010, the Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter Sarah McLachlan released of Laws of Illusion. This was Sarahs first studio album of new material in seven years, since the doubleplatinum Afterglow in 2003, and its twelve songs rank with the most compelling work ever created by this gifted artist.In the years between these two releases, Sarah has married, separated, and is raising two young daughters. These crucial life experiences have enriched her artistry and infused her new songs with the full range and complexity of adult emotions. In listening to Laws of Illusion, we can hear the strength of hardearned independence; the trials of love won, lost, and found anew; and the infinite joys of living.Because Sarahs voice is so intimately familiar to so many of us, the experience of Laws of Illusion is a singular and special one. Its like meeting an old friend again after long separation and discovering that the passage of time and the accumulation of experience have only deepened rather than diminished that friendship.For Sarah herself, this period was a time of profound change and renewed discovery. I think when you go into a dark place for a while and you come out of it, the lightness you feel iseuphoric, she told an Advocate.com interviewer in May 2010.My marriage collapsed a couple of years ago, and it was a long, dark roadFinally coming through that knowing that life is going to be okay, life will go on, and that theres actually a possibility of love happening again is just deliriously heady stuff.In Laws of Illusion, Sarah looks at love from both sides now. The opening track, Awakenings, moves on a subdued electronic pulse underpinning ethereal guitar lines and as the singer soars into her upper register demonstrates her ability to craft an unforgettable hook without hitting the listener over the head with it.Loving You Is Easy, the first single from the album, is an upbeat, almost jaunty pianobased song, with a musical atmosphere perfectly matched to lyrics that describe the heady thrill of new love: Im alive and Im on fire/Shot like a starburst into the sky"
