A popular singer-songwriter from Vancouver, Canada. Her first album, the new age "Touch," was released in 1988. Her two most critically acclaimed albums were 1991's "Solace" and 1993's "Fumbling Towards Ecstacy," the follow-up records to her debut. Unfortunately, she hasn't made an album as good as either of the two since. Her next endeavor, "Surfacing," sold over 6,000,000 copies in the United States and spawned four hits on pop radio, including the ASPCA theme "Angel." McLachlan hit a career low with 2003's "Afterglow," which was universally panned by critics, despite selling over 2,000,000 copies in the United States. After the platinum success of 2006 Christmas album "Wintersong," McLachlan finally released a new album of original material in 2010, "Laws of Illusion." In the past few years, Sarah McLachlan has essentially become the female equivalent of Bono. She constantly preaches out to the public to donate money for abused animals or musically-deprived children, but does so at the expense of her own artistic qualities.
Person A: Have you heard that new Sarah McLachlan single, "Find Your Voice"? It's so great that she's helping out those poor children!
Person B: It’s good for those kids, but I'd take "Into the Fire" or "Possession" any day over that song.
