I've been a fan of Miss Jackson since the early 70's. Of late some of her recordings have been rather bland - however she's come back with a great black sound and a theme. She's 50 (well maybe a bit more!).
She's as up front as ever and her launguage is as salty as ever but the theme of middle age is one she comments on with wisdom and wit. Best cuts are Butt a Cize, In my life, She's a Ho, OMF and I'm 50!
Some of her comments are just plain funny and when she's at her most outrageous she's at her peak. I thoroughly recommend this to all soul fans.
