I find this a fantastic exploration of identity through a single song. It is a good thing that 'Slave to the Rhythm' is such a banger. The conversations about how history affects our identity are palpable and still resonate today. While the title track is the standout song, the entire album is interesting, and the narratives about Jones' life are phenomenal. It helps that everyone has fun accents. A perfect album for someone looking to dive into Grace Jones' exciting and bizarre career!
