  • Credits
    EngineerJonny Dollar

    Producers include: Jonny Dollar, Neneh Cherry, Booga Bear.
    Recorded at Cherry Bear Studios, Orinoco, London, England; Grapehouse, Copenhagen, Denmark; Powerplay Studios, New York, New York.
    Cherry's follow-up to her breakthrough RAW LIKE SUSHI is a fabulously inventive aural collage of jazz riffs, pop hooks, and hip-hop beats that manages to make room for R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe on vocals. Highpoints in HOMEBREW's uniformly strong program include the irresistibly bubbly "Buddy X," as well as "Trout," a sort of space-age blues song anchored by--of all things--a sample from the first Steppenwolf album. A knockout.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (11/26/92, p.69) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a stylistic breakthrough...holds a stash of subtly addictive pleasures...Neneh Cherry is her own volatile creation..."
    Spin (12/92, p.68) - Ranked #6 in Spin's list of the 20 Best Albums Of The Year - "...HOMEBREW is the product of an effortless talent at the top of her game..."
    Spin (11/92, p.113) - Recommended
    Entertainment Weekly (1/7/93, p.123) - Ranked #3 in Entertainment Weekly's list of the Top 10 Albums Of 1992 - "...a swirl of hazy, ambient ballads and subtly rhythmic jazz-hop..."
    Entertainment Weekly (10/30/92, p.82) - "...Cherry's voice easily glides from supple notes to seamless rapping...what makes HOMEBREW a logical sequel to RAW LIKE SUSHI is its heightened sense of confidence...may be the most hopeful pop of the year..." - Rating: B+
    Q (1/93, p.70) - Included in Q's list of the 50 Best Albums Of 1992.
    Q (11/92, p.100) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...HOMEBREW is well worth the engagingly natural and gloriously creative musical mix of hip-hop beats and's that kind of vivid, powerful experience that makes you wonder if everybody shouldn't take 3 years between records..."
    CMJ (11/23/99, p.27) - "....HOMEBREW'S clever, attitude-thick mix of streetwise hip-hop, space age R&B and ambient grooves not only holds up to anything of its kind out today, but also blows the majority of chump-change trip-hop acts clear out of the water..."
    Musician (12/92, p.96) - "...Where RAW LIKE SUSHI seemed to walk the line between rap, rock, and R&B, HOMEBREW obliterates such boundaries...the music plays by no rules but Cherry's own..."
    Village Voice (3/2/93, p.5) - Ranked #13 in the Village Voice's list of the 40 Best Albums Of 1992.
    Village Voice (3/9/93, p.80) - "...where the lithe beats and uncorny sonics flesh out the concept and jolt every track, the lyrics settle for honest..." - Rating: B+
    Stereo Review (3/93, p.81) - "...exhilaratingly combines elements of rock, rap, jazz, R&B, and even beat poetry...HOMEBREW is more than just exciting, fresh music. It's a balm to the soul..."
    Audio Magazine (3/93, p.88) - "...Though not as hip-hopped as RAW LIKE SUSHI, this album is more natural, more mature, and ultimately better..."
