Grace Jones - Sunset Sunrise
Hallelujah! Grace Jones' 2008 album Hurricane is finally being given a US release on September 6th by PIAS (America). Produced by Jones and Ivor Guest, it marked a pretty successful return to form. I bought the EU import version a couple of years ago and loved it. It might not be a classic like Nightclubbing but it covers a lot similar ground. There are plenty of tough reggae riddims, some sleek electronica and a hint of rock guitar. I do wish that there was more uptempo, clubby material on it, but I am ultimately satisfied with the record. Best part of this news? Not the new artwork, but the newly added second disc - a dub version of the record. This has me psyched - can't wait to hear it!
