    One of the best comeback albums an artist could make. Veteran Grace fans will instantly recognize it's her and her style upon first listen. Nearly 23 years after "Bulletproof Heart", Grace Jones still has that magic.

    'Hurricane' is a biggest comeback by a veteran artist! Grace Jones's imagination it so dark and powerful that made me feel like I was inside the hell and on the same time on heaven. This is amazing!!!

    This is the gem in her catalog for sure, a beautifully crafted masterpiece. The so-called music critics who have given the album only favorable reviews are truly clueless. They all can go back to kissing up to generic bands like u2 and britney spears.

    Although Guest's interpretations work well as an accompaniment piece, it's the return-to-form original (also included here in its entirety) which remains the more essential listen.

    Here, the tunes are dubbed to within an inch of their lives, reduced to fiddly-for-fiddling's-sake electronic bleeps and riffs. [Oct 2011, p.100]
