Stronger Than Pride

Stronger Than Pride

by Sade


View All Available Formats & Editions


After two LPs with little or no energy, Sade demonstrated some intensity and fire on her third release. Whether that was just an attempt to change the pace a bit or a genuine new direction, she had more animation in her delivery on such songs as "Haunt Me," "Give It Up," and the hit "Paradise." Not that she was suddenly singing in a soulful or bluesy manner; rather, Sade's dry and introspective tone now had a little more edge, and the lyrics were ironic as well as reflective. This was her third consecutive multi-platinum album, and it matched the two-million-plus sales level of her debut.

This is another strong release from the talented Sade. The hits on this album include ''Paradise'', ''Nothing Can Come Between Us'' and ''Keep Looking''. This is a good album that has Sade singing with more intense emotion than in previous releases. While this album doesn't have as many hits as the albums ''Diamond Life'', ''Promise'' or ''Love Deluxe'', it does provide listeners with a very rewarding listening experience. This is a nice album to purchase if you're just discovering Sade or are a long time fan. Be sure to purchase her other albums as well.
