EDITORS’ NOTES

Even in a big pop song like “My Kind of Love,” Emeli Sandé’s voice possesses an edge that makes Our Version of Events so convincing. Her dynamic presence turns “Heaven” into a high-sparking amalgam of funk, R&B, pop, and club music, but Sandé is just as captivating on “Clown” and “Breaking the Law,” a pair of naked ballads that spotlight the raw contours of her delivery. “River” is a stirring showstopper: It feels as if she’s not just singing the words, but also living the song.
