  1. The songs are sparky and Cherry is in excellent voice as she raps, sings and swings against the sparse, drum and bass-style backing orchestrated by Four Tet.

    It’s rare that you get an album by an established artist that genuinely shocks and irrevocably repositions them. Blank Project is one of those albums. This is a hugely significant return.

    Neneh Cherry has been making music for 25 years now, but Blank Project proves that she’s absolutely free of any signs of creative stagnation.

    Blank Project represents one of those rarefied moments in which an established artist meets the expectations set by her previous career, and then exceeds them in the most exciting, tangential of ways, resulting in something thrillingly different, hella moody, and deeply exciting.

    From front to back, Blank Project is riveting uneasy listening.

    It really is a stunning record, a completely unexpected treat and an album of the year contender, no doubt.

    The album captures the artist in scintillating form with its potent mesh-up of gutsy inventiveness and great maturity.

    Blank Project never aims for luxuriance. Neneh Cherry instead undertakes-- and nails--a riskier feat: a reflection on midlife that sounds both wise and inventive.

    There's like 2 or 3 good tracks here, but they're not enough to make this album remarkable in any way. These tracks are: Naked, Spit Three Times, and 422. Full Review »
