First CD reissue of the second and final Cristina album, originally issued in 1984.  Deluxe foldout digipak reissue, with six bonus tracks. Produced by Don Was, with guest musicians including Marcus Belgrave and James Chance. SLEEP IT OFF was a masterpiece, from its unsettling Jean Paul Goude cover, to the haunting acoustic ballad “He Dines Out On Death.” In between, Cristina snarled the Sex Pistols-ish “Don't Mutilate My Mink,” the electro-funk of “Ticket to the Tropics,” and a raucous romp through Van Morrison's “Blue Money.”  “The one thing that pop music has lost lately is its sense of irony,” Cristina lamented when SLEEP IT OFF was released in 1984. “There's none of the real wit and self-humor of anyone from a Bertolt Brecht to a Cole Porter or an early Dylan.” More pop and less disco than its predecessor but a genre classic of its time – outshining things like Blondie and other smart girls of the era.
