Nineteen years between albums is the sort of gap usually reserved for in-it-for-the-money reunions, but Hurricane--Grace Jones’ first album since 1989's Bulletproof Heart--suggests an artist who hasn't lost one shred of her disco nous or imperious command. Recorded with a string of collaborators including Brian Eno, Tricky, Tony Allen, and Wendy And Lisa of Prince's band The Revolution, Hurricane occupies territory somewhere between the taut reggae of Jones' early '80s output and the gloomy dub-rock of Massive Attack's Mezzanine. The latter influence is particularly prime on “Corporate Cannibal", a fiercely modern-sounding slab of gnarled guitar and horror-flick synth that finds Jones playing the role of a hungry acquisitions manager that actually eats her prey: “I consume my consumers/With no sense of humour", she looms, deliciously; “Hurricane", meanwhile, pairs her up with Tricky, whose husky whisper is all but subsumed in shrill classical strings. Elsewhere, though, there is warmth and history: Jones pays tribute to her mother's side of the family on “I'm Crying (Mother's Tears)" and “Williams Blood", which builds from a reggae strut to a gospel chorus that's dramatic as a thunderclap. A commendable return. –-Louis Pattison

WOW! This stunning. literally perfect new studio album by the inimitable, off-the-wall Grace Jones (her first project since 1989's Bulletproof Heart) far surpassed what i'd originally expected. Now, don't get me wrong, i've always loved the weird but wonderful Grace Jones, but had long since given up hope of her returning to the music scene, let alone with such concise precision, depth and fire. Her last project Bulletproof Heart was a rather hit-and-miss affair, alternated by some stunning results (Love On Top Of Love<, Bulletproof Heart and On My Way) and some rather forgettable, nondescript recordings. Bulletproof Heart failed to re-capture the glories of Grace Jones recognised masterpieces - Warm Leatherette (1980), Nightclubbing (1981) and Slave To The Rhythm (1985). On the excellent albums Warm Leathrette, Nightclubbing and Living My Life (1982), Grace had been teamed with those two renowned Reggae wizards: Slyn Dunbar and Robbie Shakespere. They were the classic Compass Point Sessions. So, if anything, buying this brand new CD by Grace Jones was largely out of curiosity. I was immediately delighted to see Grace had hooked back up with Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakepere for Hurricane. From the opening track, i knew this album was going to be RED HOT and a WINNER! This was not least backed up some of the critics reviews that have been unanimous in their praise for Hurricane, many correctly stating that this was a significant comeback for Grace Jones.

Hurricane(2008) is a deep, reflective, often spiritual piece of work by the legendary Grace Jones. On tracks such as Williams Blood and I'm Crying (Mothers Tears) the songs are almost autobiographical.

Indulge me here for a moment or two.

Heart and mind rarely unite wholly in a lifetime.

"Toothless mangy hound" that I am (allegedly).

Ms Jones' return after so many years away is
an event of import not fully understandable
to anyone under 40 years of age.

For those of us who cared and were fully formed in the 80s'
Ms Jones' craft, style, music and mellifluous mezzo were the
very essence of dark, brooding, ambiguous sexuality.

'Hurricane' is an extraordinary and wonderful return.

It really does blow everything that came before it out of the water.

This is more than mere maturity.

This is re-creation, reincarnation and renaissance rolled into one
magisterial whole.

The songs, as others here have correctly observed, are more
autobiographical in content than her earlier work.

It is as though the mask (and what a beautiful mask it has always been)
has been allowed to drop just a little to give us a small glimpse of the
woman and the hidden soul beneath.

The nine tracks are conceptually and musically coherent.

Affectionate backward glances - 'This Is'; 'Well Well Well'; 'Love You To Life'.

Catharsis - 'Williams' Blood'; 'Hurricane'; 'Devil In My Life'.

Warm reflection - 'I'm Crying (Mother's Tears)'; 'Sunshine Sunrise'.

Dark humour - 'Corporate Cannibal'.

It's all here.

The Voice has never sounded better !
Centred, powerful, unwavering.

Co-production with Mr Guest is never less than masterful.

That Mr Dunbar and Mr Shakespeare are reunited with her
is both wonderful and entirely correct.

Where did she go? After a decade of constant media exposure, and success in various of fields, she dropped off the face of the planet after she starred with Eddie Murphy in Boomerang in 1992. Enough about the past, because she is here, and relevant as ever.

"Hurricane" is Jones' first album in almost twenty years, and was it worth the long wait? Definitely. Jones is as sharp as ever. Her greatest gift is to find the right people, and that is exactly what she has done this time around. Her old pals, Sly and Robbie, once again provides her with flawless rhythms on tracks like the bouncing reggae cut "Well Well Well", which sounds like it could have been taken straight out of Living My Life. Tricky, Brian Eno, Ivor Guest and Phillip Sheppard (look at those names!) provides her with eletronic beats, strings and all of that stuff, and it all adds up to a truly unique album. "This Is" is a lovely narrative, and "Williams' Blood" hits a litte closer to home for Grace. The song ends with a duet between her and her mother singing "Amazing Grace", of all songs.

The most personal song on the album is the truly lovely and heartbreaking narrative about her mother on "I'm Crying (Mother's Tears)", in which Grace sounds absolutely spectacular. The song also reveals what a truly wonderful human being Grace is. Forget all of the scandals, and listen to her story, and you are guaranteed to change your mind about the scary "man-eating" machine. Speaking of which, "Corporate Cannibal", was released as a teaser earlier this summer, and it's a dark and menacing song that will cut right through you. The title song was released as a promo back '98, and it's been updated with help from Tricky and an orchestra. It's a fantastic, and epic, cut, that is guaranteed to have you bouncing off the wall.
