I consider this one of her best

Funny, when this album first came out, people didn't rate it too highly. From the first moment I heard it, I considered it one of her best! Lately in the last ten years, the court of public opinion has finally caught up.


I have been waiting for this one for a while. I bought this way back when on cassette and lost track of its where-abouts after a few moves, marriage, and kids. I agree with the first post...this is a wonderful album.

Transition album to "pop music"

It's interesting how the main review is both accurate and way off the mark. On the one hand, skip the intro, don't let "Gravity" get to you, and feel free to stop listening after "Runaround." But, in between is, IMO, some of Jones' most radio friendly, catchy pop music; they're the songs I play most often today. The intro to "Juke Box Fury" is clever and funny, and the song will get your toe tapping. "It Must Be Love" has a great melody and should have been a big hit; synthesizers and hair metal ruled 1984, unfortunately. And "The Real End" and "Runaround" are a lot of fun. Jones flies into space every now and again...don't let that stop you from enjoying her when she comes back to earth and writes some good pop songs.

Most of her commercial success came at the outset of her career, but a restless creative spirit -- combined with a stubborn refusal to fit comfortably into any one musical niche -- sealed her ultimate destiny as that of a highly regarded cult heroine. Jones was born on November 8, 1954, in Chicago, but the volatile relationship between her mother and...
