From the striking Jean-Paul Goude artwork to that man-eating voice and dark riddims courtesy of Sly and Robbie, Mikey Chung and Sticky Thompson, Grace Jones's 10th album - and first since 1989 - contains many ingredients from the pop iconoclast's classic 80s material.
Despite the lengthy hiatus, Jones sounds as invigorated as ever, effortlessly morphing from fearsome alien on Corporate Cannibal to gracious daughter on the autobiographical I'm Crying (Mother's Tears). 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.
Released in the UK in 2008, Hurricane arrives in North America as a deluxe edition. The second disc, a near-Graceless dub version remixed by producer Ivor Guest and guitarist Adam Green with material left over from the original studio sessions, is definitely for the heads.
