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).
