Anita Baker: The Deep Dark Soul

Richard Cook, Wire, September 1986

THE BAND PLAYS a slow, rough-textured groove, flesh laid on the dark bones of the bass. Three women set up a vocal counterpoint, rich with vibrato, but the singer's work is to beat a space out of her surroundings.

Total word count of piece: 1218
