Sinead O'Connor remains a gifted singer who conveys hurt, pain, and even joy with an empathy that makes every word stand on end. With a choir of clearly angry Sinead voices, "Take Off Your Shoes" and the a cappella "V.I.P." take aim at the child-abuse scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church. "Reason with Me" inhabits a junkie's soul with a melody that evokes memories of that time around 1990 when it seemed O'Connor would be a chart-topping force for years to come. "Old Lady" and "The Wolf Is Getting Married" express optimism for love and marriage, surprising considering O'Connor's public lack of success in that department. More in line with her moody brilliance, "Back Where You Belong" lets her voice stretch, break, and wail with an emotional fortitude that’s always been her brightest calling card. John Grant's "Queen of Denmark" has its humorous moments and further asserts O'Connor's artistic dominance. She's always been a peerless singer. Here, the material invigorates her to revisit old heights.
Been waiting for this album. I heard samples of "Reason With Me" and "Take Off Your Shoes" on her site a while back and enjoyed them both.
Want to here more of this amazing artist... You keep going girl, there are a lot of us who love your music :)
As a long-term Sinead fan, I've bought everything she's released but everything since Faith and Courage have received just a few listens and then filed away. I've been listening to this album daily since release day. Though not as energetic as Faith and Courage, Sinead sounds wonderful and this album is great. My favorites so far are Old Lady, Queen of Denmark (which makes me laugh), and the amazing The Wolf is Getting Married. The latter has been in my head non-stop and I'm singing it even when I'm not listening to the album. This album won't get any radio play, but Sinead fans will love it.
