From the painstaking ballads "Is It a Crime" and "Jezebel" to spirited, up-tempo favorites such as "Paradise" and "Kiss of Life," The Best of Sade is an essential addition to the collection of any true fan of the dynamic, African-Brit beauty. With the 1985 release of her jazzy debut, Diamond Life, the sultry vocalist turned contemporary R&B on its ear with her husky pipes and heart-wrenchingly honest lyrics. This stellar collection includes highlights from that disc ("Smooth Operator," "Your Love Is King") as well as cherished songs from her equally provocative follow-ups, Promise ("The Sweetest Taboo," "Never as Good as the First Time"), Stronger Than Pride ("Love Is Stronger Than Pride," "Nothing Can Come Between Us"), and Love Deluxe ("No Ordinary Love," "Cherish the Day"). Although this disc doesn't capture the full Sade experience, The Best of Sade offers an appetizing sampling of the delectable musings of this timeless artist.
