Grace Jones' debut album is a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the disco recordings sound formulaic and lack the unique quality for which she would become renowned. Saying that, it's all purely dependent on what era of Ms Jones you prefer. For me, the highlights of her music career were her trilogy of masterpieces she cut with reggae wizards Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespere. If, however, you love her disco period, then you'll probably love this album. It does at least contain two outstanding tracks in 'I Need A Man' and her inspired re-working of Edith Piaf's 'La Vie En Rose', capturing one of her most passionate and stunning vocal performances.
