    No one intones like the stentorian Warhol muse -- and then she breaks into vibrato-driven song, throbbing and strong.

    Hurricane is her first new album since 1989, and it's her best ever.

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. Expand

    this could be one of her very best comeback, its weirdness makes this album look like a kind of spectacular time-bomb, that's the way creativity goes.
