Roberta Flack at her most masterful – balancing righteous soul at it's most spiritually resonant and more mainstream accessible melodies – from her classic years at Atlantic when she was forging a whole new sound that was a unique blend of soul, jazz, and spiritualism. Each of Roberta's preceding albums on Atlantic were increasingly incredible – and this one caps of a pretty Brand: Atlantic (Label).
Two of the album's best cuts are departures from the trademark slow style. One, "No Tears (in the End)," is the closest Flack has come to a discotheque record: a bright upbeat number with snappy vocals and snappier instrumentation. I suspect this cut will attract me long after I've become bored with the rest of the album.
Roberta Flack's 5th studio album "Killing Me Softly" peaked @ #3 & was certified double-Platinum. It received a Grammy nominated for Album of the Year; the title track won 3 Grammys including Record of the Year & Song of the Year.
