All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Sade's second album improved on the performance of her debut, as "Sweetest Taboo" was a huge hit and "Never as Good as the First Time" landed in both the R&B and pop Top 20. She was once again the personification of cool, laid-back singing, seldom extending or embellishing lyrics, registering emotion, or projecting her voice. This demeanor made her more desirable in the minds of many fans and was perhaps the ultimate misapplication of the notion of sophistication. But this album topped the pop charts and eventually went triple platinum.

    Excellent effort!

    This is a great album that features some of Sade's biggest hits. Songs include the radio staples ''Sweetest Taboo'', ''Never As Good As The First Time'', ''Is It A Crime'' and the jazzy, danceable ''Maureen''. This is a great album and one of Sade's best. The songs are diverse in terms of mood and beat. The album provides great mood music and will help to create a rich atmosphere. A great album to purchase if you're just discovering Sade. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Perfect for cold nights!

    Five stars aren´t enough to rate this album. It is beaultiful, soulful, amazing... Specially during that cold nights, when you are by yourself, drinking a wine or something.
