Q - 3/95, p.119
3 Stars - Good - "...McLachlan mostly comfort[s] herself on the end of a dysfunctional relationship in a voice that blends Kate Bush and Clannad's Maire Brennan over sighing, pulsing musical backdrops..."

SOLACE 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, Sinead O'Connor-influenced single, "Into the Fire."
In 1992, at the young age of 24, McLachlan had a very real command of the pop idiom, and her songwriting was 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 and subtle 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.
