When Q magzine does those lists of the greatest albums of all time as they love to do, they're always more interesting for the ones they left off - Homebrew, as far as I'm aware is never there. Homebrew was an oddity even when it was released - underappreciated. Neneh was just doing her own thing and those of us who liked it, really liked it. Everything works on this album. The production, as the title suggests, is stripped back and more raw than raw like sushi. With the exception of possibly Marvin Gaye, this album is a personal statement from an artist at a very specific moment in her life. It's honest, sometimes paniful and always so unconcerned with fashion that it is eternally hip. Neneh, this is your masterpiece. Thanks a million.
