Dark and twisted

gracejonesThere is something about her that makes me feel uncomfortable… I guess it’s her look – hardly human-like. I found a favourable review of her new album ‘Hurricane’ on Pitchfork and I decided to watch the music video of the first single from the album. Yes, Grace Jones returns after 20 years.

Pitchfork notices that ”Hurricane’ sometimes sounds like a tribute or lost sequel to Massive Attack’s ‘Mezzanine”. I’ve listened to just one track from Jones’ album so far, but if the other tracks are alike, ‘Mezzanine’ is a cheerful sunny album compared to ‘Hurricane’…

If you’re brave enough, here’s the video of Grace’s ‘Corporate Cannibal’…

*** (few hours later) ***
This song is so amazing – its structure, its lyrics, its mood… I can’t switch to anything else right now.

    she is in her late sixties, but she’s never been better! ‘Corporate Cannibal’ is..soo disturbing, video’s amazing, original, lyrics – simply great!

    i’ll consume my consumers, with no sense of humour
    i’ll give you a uniform, chloroform
    sanatize, homogenize, vaporize… you

    i definetely have to get to know this new album

    ‘Hurricane’ (with Tricky <3) is awesome too

  1. Corporate Cannibal, Hurricane and Devil In My Life are my favourites so far.

    The album is really good!

  1. No trackbacks yet.
