Sade ~ Lovers Rock
Sade's brand of elegant pop/R&B owned the charts in the '80s, making the Nigerian/British chanteuse one of those artists whose very name becomes the adjective to describe their sound. After an eight-year layoff, Sade and her core band (and longtime producer Mike Pela) are back with a CD that is both a stunning reaffirmation of her artistry and a solid soulful collection. Perhaps the best thing that can be said about Lovers Rock is that it picks up where Sade left off, which means you will hear no cool beats or hot hired hands or hip-hop cameos. This is Sade music, and on the first single, "By Your Side," she glides back into the spotlight on gentle, countryish, sparse wings--singing, once again, about love's power to redeem. Of course, Sade knows that love can stink: listen to the dub-riddim-tinged "Every Word" and cry tears of recognition. Decidedly female but utterly universal, grown up yet not hardened, Lovers Rock ranks as one of the best of the year, and marks the return of a true original. --Amy Linden

If you don't know this album - familiarise yourself with it now. I have and i am certainly not regretting it.
LR has a distinctive sound: in place of the breathy vocals characteristic of the band's classic long slow numbers, it's more upbeat and rhythm-dominated whilst retaining its trademark poignancy.
The collection is mercifully bereft of that modern curse of the successful music artiste, ergo `guest appearances'; only the original band of Adu, Matthewman, Denman and Hale feature, ably complemented throughout by session-drummer Karl Vanden Bossche. This endows LR with a power and unity of mood absent from many contemporaries.
Highlights include `Somebody already broke my Heart', the title track and the opener `By your Side.' The quietest and simplest track is the delightful `The Sweetest Gift', an ode to Sade's only child, a heartfelt song accompanied only by acoustic guitar.
It's simply a totally beautiful album.
