One of the more underrated pop albums of the 1980s. All ten tracks slap, and Neneh's disregard for genre boundaries continues to feel salient today. Few artists manage to blend infectious beats with political energy to such a successful degree. The last minute of 'Buffalo Stance' is up there for my favorite minutes in all of music. I would impale myself on that synth hook. It also has a classic green screen music video in the same vein as Tehchnotronic's 'Pump Up the Jam.'
The ultimate, urban expression inspired by street culture, becomes a colourful party with a big hug and a bigger heart.
