A triumph of subtlety,
This review is from: Soldier Of Love (MP3 Download)
God, what is this? A new album by Sade? I saw her do Soldier of Love on Jonathan Ross. I was intrigued.
She looked and sounded as if she had avoided the last 25 years of aging. But the music.
With the album downloaded and safely on my IPod i delved into it. First listen, disappointed. Felt almost cheated.
Compelled to return to it without knowing why and found myself being treated to a masterclass of understatement.
The deftness of touch these musicians display both with melody and rythmically is incredible. The melodies slowly reveal themselves
until their simple beauty kind of aches when you hear it. Sade has done this before, and she can still do it only with more sensuality and
steamy languid phrases and pauses than ever before. Her soul is there for all to see, and I for one love what I see and hear from that
