Great album and a very unexpected pleasant surprise. Neneh Cherry has produced a funky, cool, spikey pop classic that does not compromise to commerciality but is still full of enough hooks to draw you in. I found it fresh and vital from the first listen, with the percussion in particular being superbly produced and propelling the whole thing forward. The instrumentation is minimalist, but the album is all the better for it, allowing the drum grooves and Ms Cherry's vocals to shine. This will be one of the best of the year, no question.

I have loved everything this lady has ever produced, not least because she always chooses to stay away from commercial categorisation. Her upbringing and influences have always enmeshed themselves into her music and every time you listen to one of her albums, you discover something you hadn't noticed before. Raw Like Sushi means more to me in my thirties than it did in my teens. Blank Project takes a few listens. At first it shocks you, maybe annoys you. The next time you play it, you realise that it's starting to unfold and you get it. You get her sounds more and more till you can't remember what it was that irked you and you realise you've gone through some kind of aural learning process. Neneh pushes you to explore sounds. In this album, she asks you to come with her on a very private journey following the death of her mother Moki. In an interview she says her grief became so heavy she was unable to tie her shoes. You feel that on this album. What you also sense is the spirit of an enormously positive woman who still wants to break through and come out fresh! The gritty punk beats, muffled bass, slick hints of dnb and Old Orleans funeral drums cascade through you and you know you have experienced a very fine recording from a very soulful, elegant, sassy and proud woman who is awesome in her 50th year!

Neneh Cherry has made an album that is fresh and deep. Reflective lyrics, driving bass lines, meditative, sparse arrangements. A creative collaboration that really feels like it's brought out the best in all those involved.

This may be Neneh Cherry's first solo album in over 16 years, but I guarantee you she's been more active as a collaborator and producer since the mid-1980's. Now it's come around to her turn to step up to the mike, and she's dropping the new album "Blank Project," which sounds more like an experiment than album.

Neneh's first album "Raw Like Sushi" exploded out of the gates back in 1989, and although the record labels she's been with wanted more pop-friendly, she was one of the few artists to have kept it real and produce more wonderful music than any of her counterparts since. She has gone on to collaborate with an amazing array of world artists in many different genres, and has always been busy, but this is her time, and this is her current vision.

This album has quite the pedigree in terms of help - it's a cross-collaboration with longtime friends RocketNumberNine, with acclaimed producer Four Tet at the helm, and featuring a guest appearance by Robyn - and as an album, it pounds out of the speakers with an amazing bit of one or two mellow jams mixed in with hard house beats and amazing words.

The music itself seems to be a couple of drums and a few synthesizers to assist her, but they compliment each other so elegantly. It's tribal on one end and modern and jazzy with fresh beats on the other. There are tracks here for everyone to enjoy. Not bad for a 10-track album that was recorded and mixed over a breezy 5-day period.

Here's my 5 second review each of the songs on the album:

01. Across The Water - the mellow bump of Neneh's tribal drums versus her jazz riffs about what really goes on in the night is a classy tribute to her stepfather, jazz legend Don Cherry.

Surprising how well this works. Some great sparse beats/electro/noodling as background and Neneh Cherry's very distinctive vocals. Love the song about the certain 'time of the month'. Any man or woman for that matter would be very understanding.
