Fire Drills Review:

Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan contains 27 tracks by McLachlan that includes a new track and several different remixes of songs. The album runs in order which lets you hear the evolvement of her material into the more radio friendly version that many people are familiar with. It are the early tracks that explain why McLachlan is where she is and should be what draws newer listeners back to her earlier work when she was considered more "alternative" versus adult alternative. There also is a single disc version that is more hit focused for the casual listener but I would still recommend grabbing the double disc!

Key Track: "U Want Me 2"

Band With Similar Fire: Charlotte Martin
