The return of imperious Sade and her group, ten years after Lover's Rock. With a dynamic first single (Soldier of Love) she reminds everyone how much good, timeless music is missing these days. The album is low key, tight, without pointless elations and flourishes. And her instantly recognizable warm voice is there, ready to guide you to familiar but welcomed travel routes. We just bow to her.
Suggested tracks: Soldier Of Love, The Moon And The Sky, Babyfather
