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

    It bubbles with conviction, the mock-fearsome, statuesque diva loading her lyrics with Prince-like panche. [Nov 2008, p.105]

    Hurricane is her first new album since 1989, and it's her best ever.
  4. While never as life-changing as these memories clearly were, Hurricane succeeds in its sheer force of conviction.

    Even when she strays into overwrought moodiness during the disc's trip-hoppy second half, her menacing omnipotence has a way of willing you onward.

    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]

    '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!!! Expand

    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. Expand

    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. Collapse
