Editorial Reviews

U.S. two CD edition of this album from the actress and vocalist including a bonus CD that contains a Dub mix of the album. Produced by Jones and Ivor Guest, her first release in 20 years, Hurricane has received widespread praise in the U.K. and Europe where it was released in 2009. The tracks "Williams' Blood" and "Corporate Cannibal" have emerged as hits as has the new video for "Corporate Cannibal" directed by Nick Hooker.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars.... the improbable come-back of Grace Jones October 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Grace Jones was an icon in the disco-clubbing scene of the 1980s with such ground-breaking albums like "Nightclubbing" (from 1981) and "Slave to the Rhythm" (from 1985). But after 1989's weakly received "Bulletproof Heart", Jones faided out of the limelight, and nothing much was heard from her, until almost 20 years later when Jones came back with this album a few years ago. The album was recently re-released as a 2CD affair.

"Hurricane" starts with the original 2008 album (9 tracks; 49 min.) and what a delight that album it is. Starting of with the opening track "This Is" where Grace Jones declares "This is my voice/This is my weapon of choice", the album starts off as if the last 25 years never happened and this feels like the natural sequel to "Slave to the Rhythm". "Please to meet you/Please to see you on my plate" are the opening lyrics to "Corporate Cannibal", just wow, and perhaps the best track on here. "Well Well Well" reminds me musically of "Walking in the Rain" from one of her earlier albums. The title track and "Love You to Life" continue the outstanding music on here. Truth be told, there are no weak tracks on here. Where has Grace Jones been hiding these last 20 years?

CD2 brings "Hurricane: Dub" (10 tracks; 50 min.) bringing dub versions of all of the original albums tracks, plus one additional track not on the album ("Hell"). It's an okay listening experience, some tracks are barely recognizable from the original songs, while others are great. But ultimately you wanna buy this for the original "Hurricane" album. Sadly I've never had a chance to see Grace Jones live in concert. She did a couple of US shows when "Hurricane" was released in 2008, here's hoping that this re-release will bring her back for more shows. Now then, can we hope for more original material from Grace Jones? You know we want it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a hug from and old friend! August 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Grace Jones, danceable,rockable,pop reggae at its very best. The production and musicianship is equal to the Compass Point Sessions. This is really cool music. The extra dub cd is mostly instrumentals of the albums songs with Grace using her voice sparingly. It's a trip all in itself, what a deal, 2for1. The songs are mostly sociological rather than romanantic. Even so they are great. "Isn't it a shame, how you became, the Devil in my life", twisted!! Corporate Cannibal, I still haven't figured it out yet. It's either another twisted love song or a commentary on the grotesque capitalistic adventurism so prevalent in our world today, Or maybe both. Just be glad it's a cd, she really can't jump out of the speakers and Git You! Ha ha ha ha ha. This Is, great openning number indicative of the truly wonderful album to follow. I see why this one has received no negative votes in the reviews. Williams Blood is an almost gospel song with a fade out of her singing the openning to Amazing Grace accapela. Let me tell you, this lady has class and style and a marvelous sense of humour. Just look at that Grace in hyper-drive cover art. This cd is the best of the new decade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Digital versus Physical Package October 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic collection--Five stars if there had been some new material (not just remixes) for those of us that had bought Hurricane three years ago. I already had the tracks and bought Hurricane Dub because I thought the packaging would be interesting--but it's kind of a disappointment. What a wasted opportunity to share photos and personal musings--and to encourage people actually to buy a cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice comeback Grace!!! December 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I took a chance on this Grace comeback because the reviews were very good. Well they were right. This is a bumpin return for a woman who has always been a slave to the rhythm. I'll never hear a single track on the radio, but I'll be rockin this right along with her earlier hits in my world! Why change what works. Me like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grace is Unique! January 10, 2012
By John
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Grace Jones has ALWAYS marched to the beat of her own drum and we're all the better for it. This offering just blows you away with its energy and hard hitting beat.
If you're a fan this is a must have for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Grace's Best
What can I say - it's GRACE at her best and most "modern". She gets into a groove and just builds on it as the CD progresses. One of my fav's from Grace.
