    Talented artist with a beatiful voice but, Sara needs to tap into her inner fire again. Revisit the past and things of importance that gave direction to life.

    It is mediocre rock from an amazing singer/songwriter. none of the songs do anything as passionately as her previous records

    Except for the exceptional Train Wreck and a few other cuts, its a so so album.

  1. Some may call that predictable, some may call it reliable, but there's little arguing that Afterglow is a solid effort -- it won't win new fans, but it will certainly satisfy the old ones.

    Comely but slight, Afterglow works hard to stay on a calm, unprepossessing middle middle course despite McLachlan's initimate soul-searching. [7 Nov 2003, p.68]

    It’s gorgeous, moving and magnificent.
