"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!
