Here's Graaaaaace, amazing Grace, the ultimate pop-icon, back on her trendy throne. Her new CD starts significantly with 'This is my voice, my weapon of choice' and that's only a half-truth: her voice is a sexy masterpiece but just as impressive are of course her clothes, hairstyle, gaze, looks and poses too. This is the Missis Jones that got black models onto catwalks, who made a legendary advertisement with Jean-Paul GOUDE for Citroën and herself, who inspired artists like Andy WARHOL, Helmut NEWTON or Keith HARING, and who now chooses BANKSY (cover) and Chris - Aphex Twin - CUNNINGHAM (video, and those who have seen his Rubber Johnny will already be starting to feel uneasy.) But this is also Grace the musician who evolved especially quickly from intense disco ('La Vie en Rose'), through ground breaking body-music ('Warm Leatherette'), to the unparalleled reggae of 'Nightclubbing' (with the likes of the superb rhythm-tandem SLY & ROBBIE), up to and including the ultimate statement: 'Slave to the Rhythm'. Now the pop role-model is making an imposing comeback. 'Hurricane', that's the title of the new CD (here via Pias) and this time too you can again hear the 'jamagical' SLY & ROBBIE, plus TRICKY, BRIAN ENO, TONY ALLEN.... With exciting titles like 'William's Blood', 'Corporate Cannibal', 'Devil In My Life'... Completed with milder beauty like 'I'm Crying (Mother's Tears)', 'Sunset Sunrise'... Well Well Well.
