    i find this album to have a very spirtual undertone, by listeneing to her music there is a stability i always find love, god, strength and pain. Isnt that what life is? Sade is living life, and growing in the process which to me is the most important thing. she gives us just enough music to get by….Cant wait to see her July2011!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
