A must have

I remember buying this on tape when she first came out. I played that tape over and over. I was in high school at the time. It's a great addition to a music lover's collection.

Raw Like Truth

Considering Neneh’s pedigree, step-daughter of jazz musician Don Cherry and half-sister of Eagle-Eye Cherry, it would make sense that her debut would combine different genres to make her debut album, Raw Like Sushi. “Buffalo Stance” went through a few different version before turning into the worldwide bestseller seen on this album. The follow-up single “Kisses on the Wind” sounds more like an attempt to get Top 40 airplay that was popularized by songs like “Every Little Step” by Bobby Brown or “Escapade” by Janet Jackson. None is at her most powerful when she’s letting her rhymes flow and snarling at those who would want to get near her. She’s a street savvy spitter of lyrics. She just needs a little more time to flesh out her stance. Other songs of note: “Outre Risque Locomotive” and “So Here I Come.” Nellee Hooper also shows up to add vibraphone to the mix.
