A sublime, enduring classic... Sade's timeless masterpiece

Three years after leaving their fans begging for more, Sade created Stronger Than Pride, one of their best works ever. An international hit that lit-up the pop, jazz and R & B charts. The platinum-selling album includes sensual Brazilian bossa nova inspired acoustic material as well as three Billboard charted singles — the No. 1 smash "Paradise," "Nothing Can Come Between Us" and "Turn My Back On You."

On Stronger Than Pride, probably Sade's most stripped down and sparse album, the band creates the perfect groove for romance and fulfills the promise of their stunning debut by continuing a sense of sophistication and understated elegance, two hallmarks of the Sade sound. There's no visible strain in Sade's singing, and what she does within the boundaries of her range is exquisite.

Stronger than Pride exudes a greater confidence than the first two records, the talented band no longer has anything to prove. Stuart Matthewman on guitar and sax, Paul Spencer Denman on bass and Andrew Hale on keyboards are strong musicians/composers with distinctive character, the perfect vehicle for Sade's mature, lush vocal lead.

A great LP as far as content goes. My first copy had surface noise and non fill. Second copy has a bit of surface noise but will keep it. Sound is superb.

Like the previous two Audio Fidelity Sade releases, and indeed, everything they've released lately on vinyl, this is a stunningly well-produced, remastered, and pressed record, with a gorgeous jacket to house it in. All previous remarks directed toward the first two Sade releases apply here. This is world-class stuff! Kudos to Audio Fidelity!
