rnrnSolace is at once comforting, mysterious, expansive, timeless, and familiar. The sophomore jinx was certainly eluded here, as McLachlan sets forth a superior collection of songs and performances with the help of longtime producer Pierre Marchand. The opening track, "Drawn to the Rhythm," serves its title well and does the job of luring you in. Intelligent, intriguing lyrics and lilting melodies abound, whether amidst the pulsing rhythms of "Into the Fire" and "Back Door Man" or the quietly profound stories of "Home" and "Shelter." Although pretty much all of the tunes will grab you at one point or another, "The Path of Thorns (Terms)" and "I Will Not Forget You" are especially memorable, the latter not to be confused with McLachlan\'s "I Will Remember You," which appears on the 1995 soundtrack for The Brothers McMullen. Solace is a wonderful record that offers a glimpse of the astounding talent of a young Sarah McLachlan. rnrnrn4.5 Starsrnrn- allmusicguide.comrnrn
rnrnAmazon.co.uk ReviewrnSolace, Nova Scotian Sarah McLachlan\'s second album, is considerably more mature and musically sophisticated than her 1988 debut, the promising if limited Touch. In fact, this disc is a must-have for McLachlan fans whose first encounter with her work was with her extremely popular later releases, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy and Surfacing. The opening track, "Drawn to the Rhythm", is a habit-forming gem of a song that soars on her smooth and heady soprano and Ronald Jones\'s addictive drums (though the drone of the billatron in the chorus seems incongruous). The rumbling, electric "Into the Fire" grooves with a funky bass line; the lovelorn "Path of Thorns" and "I Will Not Forget You" are straight-ahead and bluesy. Always wise beyond her years, McLachlan displays a new awakening with introspective songs such as "Lost" and "Shelter". The hymn-like "Mercy" is the least interesting song--spare in comparison to the others--but it is a wondrous showcase of her multifaceted voice. Without a doubt, Solace is a testament to McLachlan\'s ever-swelling talent. rnrn- amazon.com rnrn
rnrnSolace is Sarah McLachlan\'s sophomore effort, and while it would take one more album (Fumbling Towards Ecstasy) to fully break into the US market, this disc caused a considerable ground swell in North America, particularly McLachlan\'s native Canada. This was largely due to the second track on the disc, the triumphant, single, "Into the Fire".rnIn 1992, at the young age of 24, McLachlan had a very real command of the pop idiom, and her songwritingwas not only mature, it was rare and exceptional. The gothic vocal piece "Mercy" and the atmospheric "Home" are quite evocative. However, the highlight of Solace is the poignant "I Will Not Forget You". On this track, a wash of guitars andsubtle piano chords are supported by rich percussive textures (which clearly recall Peter Gabriel\'s seminal records). The final song on the album, "Wear Your Love Like Heaven" arrives on the heels of several dense, brooding tunes, and this radiant Donovan cover ends Solace on an upbeat note. rnrn- amazon.co.ukrnrnrn
