Biography

There has never been mistaking Sinead O’Connor for anybody else. A voice born to break as many hearts as windows, as tender as it is lethal. The face, simultaneously that of ocean-wide-eyed angel and shaven-headed warrior queen. And the spirit, courageous in its conviction, undaunted by controversy and fortified with endless reserves of resilience. Sinead O’Connor is that rare ... Read more in Amazon's Sinead O'Connor Store

Product Description

Limited Extended Edition includes 3x album exclusive bonus tracks. Acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Sinead OConnor releases her brand new studio album 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss' via Nettwerk Records on August 11th 2014. The first single from the album entitled 'Take Me To Church' is released on the same day. 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss' features twelve brand new songs which showcase the very best of Sinad and what makes her so special, passionate and direct yet with an overarching fragile beauty Sinads voice and lyrics are as powerful as they are tender. Newly signed to Nettwerk Records, I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss is her 10th studio album in a career spanning over twenty five years. Sinead is a rare thing in popular music, an absolutely unique artist. From her first breakthrough hit, 1987's 'Mandinka' and the multi-platinum global success of 1990's 'I Do Not Want What I Havent Got' and its unforgettable number one 'Nothing Compares 2 U', right through to her brand new record Sinead has constantly surprised and delighted. Going from million selling artist to fearless genre-crossing forays into Irish folk and roots reggae and collaborations with artists as diverse as Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack and The Chieftains, Sinad has trodden a unique path to become the most iconic Irish artist of the past thirty years.

Format: Audio CD
It is a real shame that Sinead O'Connor is mostly remembered for her admittedly unforgettable cover of Prince's "Nothing compares 2 U". Not one to shy away from heavyweight topics, her confessional songwriting became her trademark, assisted by her unmistakable, full of conviction, fragile delivery. From her dynamic 1987 debut, right up to today, and amidst adversities during her tumultuous career and public life, she has consistently exhibited such a wealth of talent, that it is beyond me how on earth she has not sustained a solid and abundant audience, and enjoyed the commercial acclaim she deserves.

Following material consisting mostly of religious thematology, her last studio album, 2012's "How about I be me and you be you?", her most accomplished effort in years, failed to meet any success, marking her 2000 album "Faith and courage" as the last, though relatively small, success in her discography. For this new set she seems to move towards a more mainstream direction. More guitar-driven than past records, but brightened with some folk elements, reggae beats, R'n'B touches, combined with edgy as usual lyrics, the overall essence of the record is her most commercial-sounding in over a decade.

Expressing pain and despair, as well as joy and contentment, Sinead's spine-tingling vocals are so pure and raw, that anyone with a beating heart inside them is to be inevitably mesmerised. First single "Take me to church" is indicative of the album's sonic diversity, while "Your green jacket", "Kisses like mine" and "Harbour", are highpoints to treasure. Saving literally the best for last, closing track "Streetcars", possibly the most fragile song of 2014 so far, ends the record in the most striking manner, on an album where some songs are less plausible than others.

Everyone should have a copy of this. It costs what, burger-and-chips for two, but it's just exceptional. A gorgeous record, energy honesty and soul encoded in the little bit of plastic like doesn't often happen. Fabulous.

"Songs of longings but fulfilled
Songs that don't let you sit still
Songs that mend your broken bones
And don't leave you alone"

-'Take me to Church'

After the first listen I wasn't that impressed with this record as a whole although several strong songs stood out immediately. After a few rounds the tracks I first found weak and didn't find much melody and rhythm in began to work, and the record gains structure and simply gets better and better with every listen.

What's interesting about Sinéad as an artist is that she's never afraid of experimenting and trying out new genres/ concepts. I respect that. Every album -I have all of them- is something new in a way. Not sticking to 'same, same, safe' and what is perhaps expected has it's 'risks' depending of course on what you want to achieve and experience. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't quite. This time it does!

Well, I am Sinead fan...but the album is VERY VERY GOOD, and you will definitelly love it, if you give it a good listen. LOTS of standing out, catchy/quiet/angry/ and/or loud songs, powerful vocals and good lyrics. You couldn't ask for more.

And...make sure you get the deluxe edition, even just for the nice packaging (non plastic, digipack in the UK, really cool booklet with lyrics, pictures, and some 'stories') but I guess the album would NOT be complete without a pretty 'sweet' number 13 (bonus) song, my favourite really.

This album is a treasure.
I can't stop listening to it.Beautiful ,moving lyrics and vocals,superb production (great job John Reynolds). For an album like this I've been waiting for months (or years even).
Get yourself a copy (make sure is deluxe one) and just listen to it...
Thank you Sinead.

So good. Sinead is so honest and "her mission" in the Music World has still a lot to express. Many songs could be mentioned, but I love the entire Album and I love to listen to it from song 1 to the last one. Buy with confidence.

CD just arrived 10 minutes ago. Was a bit wary of buying Thinking she was a bit of a scary singer/songwriter. Oh how wrong was I. Fantastic CD for relaxing with, driving with or just putting a nice finish to a hard day.

it's good, but does not have as much power as 'I don't want what I haven't got' or 'faith and courage'. I have a feeling that mrs O'Connor has less and less to say with every next cd
