Not gonna go into any details with this one. I love the Sade "hits" of old and the catchy songs and I bought the last record "Lovers Rock". It had appx. one catchy song on it.
The same problem remains with the new album released some 10 billion years later. 2 great songs and a lot of mediocre soul crap that you have to be beep or beeeeep to enjoy or find any sort of interest in.
Unfortunately I'm a hardcore up-coming dictator, so I didn't find any beeps within me, except for my trigger finger. Not targeting Sade though, she's cool and still sings stunningly beautiful. It is targeting the critics who made me buy this album. Come on, it's not good enough. What the fuck has she been doing for 10+ years?
Prince could write better "soul waste" in 10 seconds, but he's too busy reading the big shitty J book. Anyway, he shouldn't be doing that crap. He should write some nasty shit that pissed off the J man instead, that and also be running around in stockings and a guitar dick with Bambi mounted on his face.
Sade should go and hide 2 or 3 more years and then come back with some serious catchy soul shit that would stick to a stick all the way. 2 or 3 songs are like a bad teaser. Boys have never liked bad teasers.
