"Warm Leatherette" is my favourite record of Grace Jones. It contains her most substantial material to date as well as her best efforts recreating magnificent cover version. The standout track is probably BREAKDOWN. Its bittersweetness is very well portrayed. It's heartbreaking and luscious at the same time. You don't know if you want to cry or bask in painful memories of your deliquescent love.
PRIVATE LIFE on the other hand is almost as cold as ice. All emotions have been shut down and Grace is mumbling delightfully remote-controlled (like a robot). The only emotional breakdown is the (too) short ejaculation after the hook. Magnificent track!
PARS re-creates the legendary 'La Vie En Rose' moment which has become one of Grace's signature cover versions. The romantisized French classic is brilliantly elaborated.
Grace Jones really warmed up to her more artistic side with this album. It contains some of her strongest and most intense work to date. And even if BULLSHIT might lack a bit of innovation, it's still good enough to keep the album on a well rounded and stunning basis.
