Diamond Life

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Former model Sade made an immediate and huge impact with her 1984 debut album, Diamond Life. Her sound and approach were deliberately icy, her delivery and voice aloof, deadpan, and cold, and yet she became an instant sensation through such songs as "Smooth Operator" and "Your Love Is King," where the slick production and quasi-jazz backing seemed to register with audiences thinking they were hearing a jazz vocalist.

    A nice debut

    This was pretty much where it all started for Sade. There are 3 big songs on this album that helped get her career off the ground, ''Smooth Operator'' being the most notable. The other 2 songs were ''Your Love Is King'' and ''Hang On To Your Love''. Although these are classic radio staples and the album is a good introduction to her talents, Sade was to release stronger and more mature material in the years to follow. The album ranks very high among smooth jazz fans, adult/contemporary/Top 40 radio disc jockeys and deserves the 5 star rating I'm giving it. A good purchase overall and a nice introduction to Sade.
