Sade – Stronger Than Pride LP (2024 Reissue) – Sony

Review
Stronger Than Pride marks a subtle shift in Sade’s sound, emphasizing a more stripped-down, meditative approach to romance and introspection. Recorded after a hiatus, the album exudes a breezy, unhurried vibe, with compositions that loop back on themselves and melodies that leisurely unfurl. While not as minimalistic as later efforts, the album showcases softer rhythms and lighter melodies, allowing Sade’s airy vocals to shine. Songs like ‘Love Is Stronger Than Pride’ and ‘Turn My Back on You’ capture emotional honesty and candor, buoyed by sparse arrangements that enhance Sade’s directness. Throughout the record, Sade’s writing maintains a mantra-like quality, repeating phrases to imbue the songs with quiet anguish and introspection. Leroy Osbourne’s background vocals add warmth to Sade’s cool melodies, enhancing the emotional resonance of tracks like ‘Paradise’ and ‘Nothing Can Come Between Us.’ The band’s cohesion and faith in each other are evident on Stronger Than Pride, with each member contributing to flesh out Sade’s ideas or provide space for them to bloom. While lacking the glitz and melodrama of previous hits, the album’s emotional clarity and restrained production make it a compelling addition to Sade’s discography, showcasing their ability to evolve while staying true to their signature sound.
