While much of her work before was unique and could only be Grace Jones, here this all sounds like typical late 80s fodder. Even though some of the lyrics are indeed personal, she somehow manages to lose her identity on the album.
This re-issue of the original album also includes two bonus tracks from the original sessions which wound up canned for years and, quite frankly, on listening to them it's easy to see why. Opening the album is the dance-pop number 'Driving Satisfaction' which comes complete with swirling, synthesized effects and a vastly seductive, sexually charged performance from Jones.
It becomes an almost contagious track after a couple of listens and is most certainly a grower, emerging as one of the better tracks to be found scattered on 'Bulletproof Heart'. On the other hand, it could also be described as slightly over-long, clocking in at over six minutes.
Still, it's a good start to the album. With the jamming affair of 'Driving Satisfaction', you would think the album would get better from here on but the whole project is something of a mixed bag with a few highs but far more lows. Her performance has some spirit and fire though is a little on the frail side, at points sounding on the verge of going out of tune.
Still can't make up my mind whether this is compelling from its weird, off-the-wall manner or just complete utter dross, Bulletproof Heart - Grace Jones - Bulletproof Heart (Cassette. Either way you Bulletproof Heart - Grace Jones - Bulletproof Heart (Cassette almost feel Jones putting her whole heart and soul into the song. Her voice does, however, reach new levels of intensity. David Cole works his commercial-like magic on Jones for this fabulously funky, infectious belter.
Adding to its immediate effect is the use of male voices weaving in and out of the mix and a segment of exotic percussion. Jones delivery is surprisingly strong, vibrant and assertive and makes a perfect fit for her narrow vocal range.
Though 'Love On Top Of Love' enjoyed much club recognition in its 12inch incarnation, the track all the more surprisingly bombed on the mainstream chart. Unfortunately, the limitations of her vocal abilities surface on the straight-forward, routine ballad 'Paper Plan'. Her singing becomes an almost monotonous drone, which is actually a shame as here the lyrics are profound and poetic, but it's lost in the fairly tedious arrangement.
She attempts to deliver gritty social commentary on 'Crack Attack' in which Jones inserts herself effectively into the complex musical arrangement. Bubbling with polyrhythms, an edgy beat, synth bursts and rattling percussion, this is another of the album's better offerings. Employing the rapping talent of Freedom may seem just a tad too desperate to be seen as relevant and contemporary and the lyrics could also be viewed as slightly gimmicky.
Still, it makes for one of the more entertaining moments of the album. The monster title track, 'Bulletproof Heart' alongside the superb 'Love On Top Of Love', is one of the recordings on the project that boasts such immediacy. From the thunderous opening intro that sounds like it's been ripped-off from Michael Jacksons', 'The Way You Make Me Feel' to crashing, slamming musical effects, Jones ignites the track into a winner with her sassy, fiery performance that gels exceedingly well into the striking arrangement.
Hosting prominent backing vocals and jerky rhythms, the arsenal of instruments include electric guitar and groaning sax. Sometimes less is more, and here that is definitely the case. A brooding ballad, the haunting male backing vocals echo throughout whilst Jones' delivery is easy-going and seamless. As well as being the best cut, it's also the most experimental, with lots of weird electronics and sweeping synthscapes adding to Bulletproof Heart - Grace Jones - Bulletproof Heart (Cassette atmospheric feel.
More upbeat is the so-so, out-and-out pop-oriented 'Dream'. Grace Jones had only achieved moderate commercial success with her first three disco albums, so with her fourth release, Warm Leatheretteshe reinvented herself both visually and musically.

Arriving 19 years after her previous studio album, Jones took the world by storm in Album) comeback album Hurricane with which she proved that, even at the age of 60, she could still produce original sounds that were vivid, alluring and performed with show-stopping energy.
With its fusion of musical genres such as reggae and electronic, along with elements of blues, funk, new wave and even salsa, the album marked a move away from her previous disco work and became an instant hit in the US and across the globe.
