  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
On the road for the first time since the 1999 Lilith Tour, "Sarah McLachlan" performs at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada; one of the stops on her "Afterglow Live" tour. Her first album in seven years, Sarah sings such favorites as "I Will Remember You," "Building A Mystery," and "Ice Cream." Hopefully, she won't stay away as long this time; this DVD and the bonus CD are certain to make you want more! (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture looks quite good, with images that are often sharp and nicely detailed depending on the source camera. Some shots are gritty and undefined. Colors are well-balanced with the moody stage lighting piercing through a deep black background. Some shimmering details are noticed at times. (Suzanne Hodges)
