More powerful female vocals on this later one from Joan Armatrading from 1986. Mixed by Steve Lillywhite this had quite a bit of synth and sample sound going on with additional percussion by veteran Ray Cooper who has played with all the stars. (Eric Clapton and Elton John to name but a few) Funky bass from Tony Levin and a great chorus and from the album, “Sleight Of Hand” so check that out.
Lots of Fairlight sounds abound on the atmospheric “Figure Of Speech” Powerful and very Peter Gabriel-like. LOVE her voice.
