Just like Sade - Beautiful !`,
This review is from: The Best of Sade (Audio CD)
Every romantic should have a Sade CD in their collection, and this is a well compiled CD featuring one of the most vocally seductive, and sultry artists around. Some editorial criticism i have noticed about Sade Adu is that her work all sounds the same, I would repudiate this criticism and argue that Sade is wonderfully diverse and unique, one of the true pioneers of R&B, this Gal has more strings in her bow than a guitar orchestra !
The best tracks in my opinion must be the moody, bluesy 'No Ordinary Love' drowned in sorrow, its lyrics are evocatively accurate about falling in love, 'Pearls' is a poignant track about starvation in Ethiopia Pearls being the metaphor for seeds a mother is collecting to grow food for her starving child, a very perceptive piece, musically so beautiful ending in Sade screaming Halleluya because shes so lucky (you gotta hear it), Cherish the day is cool, so is the satirical 'Smooth Operator' and Your love is king, another good ballad is 'Love is Stronger than pride'. I heard her new album 'Lovers Rock' and read shes aged 41, but she still looks and sounds better than ever.
Anyone with a pulse would love this
Anyone without one, it will awake you !
