11 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Packed with silk-draped R&B tunes for the after-party, Jessie Ware’s second album’s 15 melancholy synth numbers put her dusky voice front and center. If the album cover didn't clue you in, she continues to pay homage to the '80s—"Champagne Kisses" and "Want Your Feeling" have enough drum-machine boogie to make Prince proud, while the minimal arrangements of "Pieces" and "Desire" could leave Sade breathless. She's not entirely giving up her nightclub roots, but Tough Love is best suited for dancing one-on-one.

Title track

Is definitely the smash. Such an incredible song. Cruel, Champagne Kisses, and Sweetest Song sound fantastic so far as well. As a whole I think this is one of the best albums of the year, for sure. And I really appreciate that it definitely has a distinctive sound about it where you could recognize an instrumental version of any of the songs as hers. A lot of those clear, chill, midtempo and downtempo patterns that set her music apart from other offerings that utilize the same kind of sounds and production. Definitely a big year for Jessie Ware for me.
