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

Sinead O Connor doing a reggae record. Could be a disaster .. but it isn't. Why not?

I guess because Ms O Connor is a genuine artist. She does it the way she hears it and feels it, and doesn't care at all what the critics or the marketing people say.

And also because she's gone to Tuff Gong - Marley's studio - to record it, with Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, as well as Mikey Chung, on guitar, who has played with Peter Tosh and Lee, Uziah `Sticky' Thompson, who's played with the Wailers and the Mighty Diamonds.

So there's a lovely crisp sound, and Ms O Connor's distinctive vocals. Sean-Nos it ain't, but you can get that from her elsewhere.

Still sceptical (and, as someone who loved the originals, I was until I heard it)?

Well, then get it cheap from one of the Amazon sellers ... ...

I'm no reggae fan, and I honestly believed that Sinead O'Connor had released her last track and was fading into musical retirement, but this album proves me wrong on both counts. Sinead's voice combined with the traditional reggae beat is nothing short of a revelation. Her's has always been a voice full of raw emotion, but it's not quite right to say that she gives new meaning to the music. It's more a case of her interpretation at last explaining the music, revealing the meaning that's been there all along to those of us who haven't understood previously.
This is brave departure for Sinead, but I've a feeling that she made this album for love of the music rather than for any deliberate attempt to change direction. I think this album will introduce both Sinead and reggae to many who haven't really appreciated either before.

Love this album .She sings about things that most mainstream music shys away from .Her faith in God and her outrage at the state of the world and the people who keep like that .She is fierce and gentle all at once .Great reggae album as well .

I bought this album as soon as I heard one track of it on the radio. I've been listening to it on and off for years now.

It has become one of my favourite albums of all time.

It's not perfect and some of the songs are less plausible than others but they are all good and some are brilliant.

If you like reggae, you'll probably love this.

(Also, I've introduced this album to lots of my friends over the years and they all love it too.)

This is wonderful. Sinead plays it absolutely straight and pays tribute to these '70s reggae classics (with some of the original artists) which she so obviously loves.

Her absolute sincerity and the faultless musicianship of this album make it a real treat for reggae fans and non-reggae fans alike.

Lovely.

Absolutely love this album, and have been playing it continuously since buying it. Track 7 (Vampire) is the favourite in our house, but they're all good. I love Sinead's voice, and I love reggae, so this album is a real treat!

I never thought Sinead would be able to top "Universal Mother" (especially "Fire On Babylon"), but this album does it. what an artist!!! Brave enough to continue to side step the expected paths of a "popular" artist. I was able to see Sinead perform this cd live in Detroit and it is amazing. KUDOS to Sinead. Awesome to see an artists have convictions and stick to them!!!
