The most idiosyncratic of British neo-soul stars, Corinne Bailey Rae followed up her bestselling 2006 debut with The Sea four years later, a tour of the stormy emotional turmoil caused by the death of Bailey Rae’s husband. “Closer” sidesteps tragedy completely with a romantic narrative of a lover trying to coax her new partner into being emotionally vulnerable on a surprisingly tense love jam. – Nick Dedina, Google Music
