Format:Audio CD
Before the Stones' Dirty Work hit the shelves in 1986, Mick Jagger released his first solo album a year before. Like Phil Collins doing a different sound to distinguish his solo material from Genesis, so too does Mick to differentiate She's The Boss from another Rolling Stones album with guitar chores from Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend and some keyboard work by jazz great Herbie Hancock. It has a smoother sound yet manages to rock with a pop polish. Most of the songs are produced by Bill Laswell, but Nile Rodgers of Chic does his hand on three of the tracks.

Those are "˝ a Loaf", which features a sound one might recognize on Like A Virgin, also helmed by Rodgers, who also does guitar here, with former bandmate Bernard Edwards on bass. Having a clandestine affair is deemed "half a glass, half a dream, half a life" and in the bridge, a frustrated Mick just says to heck with it and let it all hang out. He then calls upon some overprotective guardian to "Turn The Girl Loose." Featuring a strong bass, Mick really belts it out when he yells "let her out of jail." It even has Alfa Anderson doing a sassy rap declaring her independence and free will at the end. "Secrets" shows that a respectable wife isn't that respectable but has been really out on the town.

Even though not produced by Rodgers, the sound on the first danceable single "Just Another Night" is a disguised cousin of "Material Girl" in terms of sound. It hit #12 on the singles chart, somewhat low considering his long history with the Stones, but it was a #1 mainstream rock hit. Jagger seems to be shucking off the bad boy persona of the Stones: "Can't you see that I'm human" and "I get hungry, I get thirsty, I get moody, I need attention." Some great percussive effects by Sly Dunbar here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mick Solo December 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
She's the Boss (1985) was Mick Jagger's first solo album. In my view it is much better than Goddes in the Doorway or Primitive Cool, but not as good as Wandering Spirit--which is an excellent record.
She's the Boss is a good record, but it's not great. Just Another Night, Lucky in Love are kind of catchy songs, but the album does not have much personality, not much depth. It pales in comparison to Keith's first solo effort.
That said, I enjoyed listening to this record for the past 17 years. Mick's voice is still at his best, some songs are truly nice (Hard Woman is in the tradition of the great Rolling Stones slow songs), and Jeff Beck's solos are sheer talent--listen for example to the solo on Hard Woman or on the otherwise mediocre Running out of luck.
It's a 4 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars She's the Boss of Them all August 18, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I was in High School I first discovered the Stones when the concert movie "Let's Spend the Night Together" hit cable TV. At that time I was hideing out in my older brother's apartment, pipeing the cable sound through the stereo so I could crank the sound track up very, very loudly. So, of course, I became a huge fan of the Rolling Stones. But the Stones essientally broke up after the tour was over, and after the release of "Undercover" there was no new Stone's material until "She's the Boss" was released. The general opinion at that time was that the Stones were over as a band, and that Mick Jagger finally going solo was going to be how the Stones sound would be brought into the modern era. (The few people at that time who even knew who Keith Richards was considered him out of the loop and a ridiculus relic of 70's areana rock.) In most people's opinion Mick Jagger WAS the Rolling Stones. So given the degree of curiousity and anticipation surrounding the release of this CD, it was almost guarenteed to be a disappointment to both the fans and the critics. However, there is some great pop music here. If it had been released by any other artist other than Mick Jagger under these circumstances it would have been hailed as one of the great 80s albums. (It is by far the best solo effort Mick has made so far.) The guitar playing of Pete Townsend and Jeff Beck is incredible, but you have to listen closely; it is buried under the 80's dance beats. The lyrics are some of the best Mick Jagger has ever written; they are wonderfully jaded and world weary -- and no they are not lyrics written as a celebration of the working class, if you want that buy Skynard or Kid Rock CDs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hey, It's Really Not That Bad! December 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"She's the Boss" has been much maligned by fans and press alike. Especially since he has released some real gems after this like "Wandering Spirit" and "Godess in the Doorway." But "She's the Boss" (and for that matter, "Primitive Cool") show Mick tentatively stepping out and showcasing some of the dance experiments he has always been interested in (hey, since "Hot Stuff" Mick has tried these dance beats out with the Stones). But there are some real moments of inspired songwriting too, like "Hard Woman," "Secrets" and "1/2 a Loaf." And vocally, there are some very nice moments all over the record. Sure, I could have done without a few of the "filler" songs, and I wouldn't begin your Mick Jagger collection here, but it's certainly not a waste of your money if you like some of his better releases.
