I am amazed that there are no reviews for this superlative soul album, I believe one of the only two solo albums made by this artist who "lent" her voice to Massive Attack and was featured on the seminal "Unfinished Sympathy" ~a soul classic if ever there was one.

I have replaced a stretched and worn out tape with this CD, bought for loose change though this is no way cheapens this magnificent outing. The vocals are as distinct as Aretha, the arrangements minimal and profound, each track reads like a greatest hit.

Shara Nelson is one of the many and great unappreciated soul singers reduced now to anthology and "where are they now" items. She deserves a brand new generation of appreciation as a singular voice of British soul

5.0 out of 5 stars a truly warm voice 1 Nov 2000
By A Customer - Published on

Like everybody else, I noticed shara nelson as a singer on the massive attack album "blue lines". I was very enthusiastic about her first album "what silence knows", so I had to buy her second as well. Two thumbs up for her work.

4.0 out of 5 stars fan since blue lines. 15 Jan 2003
By mondo - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I have been an fan of Shara Nelson since the release of the "Unfinished Sympathy" track from the Massive Attack 'Blue Lines' album in 1991. I was eagerly awaiting and pleasantly surprised when she released "What Silence Knows" back in 1994. That first solo outing solidified her as more that just a vocalist for Massive Attack, earining her awards and accolades for her writing ability. This follow up didn't recieve the attention that "Silence" did. It's a shame because it is just as promising, if not more-so than it's predecessor, continuing with the fluid string arrangements, bits of mowtown, urban beats, jazz inflections, abstract, and better production from the likes of Jah Wobble, Tim Simenon(Bomb the Bass), St. Etienne, Pressure Drop and Lucas to name a few. Check her out on the sublime Presence(1999) album along along with another Massive Attack vocalist Sara Jay(Mezzanine).

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 23 Nov 2001
By Ziggy58 - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Sitting here listening to this CD and seeing the one (_one_) review of this album made me feel I had to write.
Shara is, apparently, largely a British secret (and not too well known in her own land, either). She is a soul singer with a voice from heaven; dark, touching and occasionally beautiful lyrics; and bassy, be-stringed and beat-filled songs with great melodies and production. She can match any soul (let alone R&B) artist from the US and yet you can only get this on import?!?!?!
Shara, Shara, why did you stop making records?!!!!

Just Got It like 30 Mins ago,
Nelson's second album, Friendly Fire, was released in 1995, and contained the hit "Rough With The Smooth" which peaked at no.30 in the UK. The album was less successful than her previous release, and peaked at no.44 in the UK. She was again nominated for "Best British Female Solo Artist" at the 1996 BRIT Awards.
In the end the day, I Love This Album!!!!!!!!
Please Buy & Support Her Albums Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank U :-)
