Sade is Back with Weapons of Mass Hypnosis

I am looking forward to getting Sade's new album Soldier of Love. I am not much of a soul music fan because I was brought up to a different kind of musical culture. I personally ban all rap and hip hop music at home. But then again there is something about Sade's music that speaks to me. Perhaps it is her innate sense of elegance and propensity for writing about pain that really get to me. Her voice s not something that you would really call 'showcase vocals' because it is laid back . But after hearing too many Celine Dions and Mariah Carey, this is a breath of fresh air!

Sade is still in top form and to think this lady is already 51! She is still backed witht he same musicians since she launched her first highly successful album Diamond Life in 1984. After waiting for 10 years(Her last album was Lovers Rock) this is a great news .

  1. I like this album a lot. Though since it came out, I have actually been listening to Diamond Life a lot in my car.
