There's nobody else in the music world quite like Sade. For a quarter of a century, the exotic British/Nigerian chanteuse and her bandmates (yep, Sade's a band) have consoled broken hearts and set romantic moods across bedrooms all over the world with their sophisticated blend of Soul/R&B, Jazz, and Quiet Storm. The 2 disc Essential Sade set, a rerelease of 2011's Ultimate Collection, compiles the group's hits from 1985's Diamon Life to 2010's Soldier of Love with a few bonus tracks and remixes thrown in.

The bossa nova-laced Smooth Operator, tropical flavored The Sweetest Taboo, and downtempo slow jam No Ordinary Love are the band's signature tunes, but just the tip of the iceberg. There's the killer torch ballad Is It a Crime, sexy personified Your Love Is King, peaceful Love Is Stronger Than Pride, lush jazz of Kiss Life (my personal favorite of all time!), and airy jam Cherish the Day among others.

Now to the new tracks. Apparently Still in Love with You is a cover of a 70's rock tune by Thin Lizzy, but I've never heard of it until now. Over a dusky, slightly bluesy, backdrop, Sade's sultry vocals plead an ex to "think it over/just one more time before you go." Love Is Found tries something new by employing a club beat and the gorgeous piano-led ballad I Would Have Never Guessed is patterned after past melancholic ballads like Pearls and King of Sorrow. The remix of The Moon and The Sky featuring Jay-Z turned out alot better than I thought it would, but I think she should've teamed up with Common or Talib Kweli for rhymes. A very big bonus comes in the form of the Neptunes Remix of By Your Side, replacing the acoustic setting for a breezy, tropical flavor. Love it!

The selection list is impressive (Although "Turn My Back On You" or "Frankie's First Affair" could have been on here instead of a "Moon and the Sky" remix and at least ONE of the "new" songs,henceforth the four star rating). Otherwise,the gangs all here."No Ordinary Love",Smooth Operator","By Your Side","Pearls",THE REAL "Moon and the Sky","Is It a Crime","Nothing Can Come Between Us" and a lot of classic Sade.("The Best Of Sade" is pretty good as well except it was released in the early 90's so the selections from "Lovers Rock" & "Soldier Of Love" are not in tow).
