Muse was Grace Jones' third LP, her third and last disco LP, and her last LP before becoming internationally famous with her "Warm Leatherette" LP. Nevertheless, with this release, there are hints as to the direction Grace Jones is about to take with her career.

Like the two LPs which preceded it, Side A consists of a medley, which at over 20 minutes is the longest single track in my entire collection! The medley is themed as you can tell from the song titles - the highlight for me is "Suffer", featuring additional vocals from Thor Baldursson, and whip cracking noises which Grace appears to enjoy.

Highlights on Side B are "I'll Find My Way To You" which apparently had featured in an Italian B-movie a couple of years previously, and "Don't Mess With the Messer", the single song on this LP arranged by John Davis.

Probably the hardest of Grace Jones' three disco LPs to find, it is well worth a listen.
