Album Reviews:

Mojo (Publisher) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] game-changing 1980 sci-fi new wave funk landmark..."

Clash (magazine) - "WARM LEATHERETTE showcases what a compelling vocalist Grace Jones is. While the music settles into a steady grove, Jones takes centre stage and demands your attention."

Uncut (magazine) - "She dominates The Pretenders' 'Private Life' and Roxy Music's 'Love Is The Drug', extending and dubbing-out Chrissie Hynde's song to make it her own..."

Grace Jones teamed with the great reggae production duo of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare on this 1980 album, and made the transition from straight dance and club act into quasi-pop star with reggae and urban contemporary leanings. The single "Private Life" was one of her best, and the overall album had more energy and production gloss than previous LPs that had been aimed completely at the club market. It helped that Jones seemed enthused about the session and really put herself into the songs. ~ Ron Wynn
