5.0 out of 5 stars A definition of class: Sade., January 9, 2001
This review is from: Lovers Rock (Audio CD)
Anyone who has enjoyed Sade's previous records knows that she deserves much more praise than she's had. A skillful vocalist, her unmistakable tone and phrasing is a perfect getaway from our troubles and sorrows. Even when she is singing songs like the Immigrant or King Of Sorrow, the inner effect is blissful and sweet. Having only 5 lp's and a best of album in more than 17 years in the music business, she has set herself as a sinonym of coolness for all music lovers. Always defined as a part of the ongoing fad, she has been labeled as jazz, lounge, AOR, Pop and other styles. She is only herself and that makes her an unvaluable asset for music lovers. In Lover's Rock, Sade and her band have aimed to simplicity rather than fireworks and the sound that made her famous worldwide is still there, cool, breezy and tender, and yet sweeter and wiser. "By your side" is a much better single than any other song these days and reminds us that beyond the Britneys & Christinas, there is a sweet unexplored musical reality that hasn't been drilled to our ears by labels and, moreso, asks us permission with each song for turning us on and being a lovable friend. 5 stars all the way.
