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

Excellent mixes; just don't expect the power of the original 21 July 2003
By Kamidanshir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Troy (the original version) may well be my favorite song of all time: the intensity of loss, grief, and rage packed into that song never fails to give me goosebumps. However clever the mixes, a lot of that intensity is lost with the addition of breakbeats and the spacing of the vocals. Despite these drawbacks, I still think the CD is worth owning for two reasons: first, the vocals sound like they were recorded recently (the emphasis is a little different, and I think her voice is a bit more weathered), which makes for a different take on the meaning of the words. Second, the remixes are enjoyable as songs in their own right, as long as they are not held up against the original (I particularly liked the Kay Cee laidback mix). I don't understand the people who say not to buy this: it's only eight bucks (as long as you're not choosing between buying the CD and eating), and I for one like to get my hands on everything Sinead's done. I might not love all of it, but I think it's worth supporting one of the best vocal artists I've ever heard.

Club mixes of a Sinead classic. 20 Dec. 2002
By K. Eisenberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am not that big of a Sinead O'Connor fan but these remixes are very well done. The song was originally featured off her Lion & The Cobra cd and was a huge college radio hit. Now in 2002 come the remixes that went to number 3 for two weeks on the Billboard dance charts. The cd comes in 2 parts and this is disc 1. The disc features 7 mixes plus the video of "Troy". Track 1 and 4 are mixed by Push and come in the trance like mix similar to "Silence " by Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan- in fact most of the trance/euro house mixes infuse Sinead's vocals down to an almost Sarah McLachlan type vocal performance. The Push mix(7:57), the Rob Searle Mix(8:38) and Pulsedriver Mix(7:21) are the examples. The Andi Durrant Remix(10:34) is very laid back and ambient like- almost like the original version. This mix features the full on vocal attack of the original. For the more adventureous clubs. The best mixes are the John Creamer & Stephane K Mix(12:57) and Kay Cee Laidback Mix(8:40). These mixes are just incredibly well done in that they put the intensity of the vocals and match it with the music as well. The John Creamer & Stephane K mix is tribal and very underground in sound and the vocals work extremely well in this mix. The best mix is the Kay Cee Laidback mix because half way there is an acappella break down and it is just Sinead's fiery voice you hear. These two mixes make her sound like a warrior going off to battle. Intense!

Overrated 14 Feb. 2003
By Matthew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I think Sinead's terrific, I think The Lion & The Cobra is amazing, and I think Troy might be her most powerful song. But, for the most part, her emotion is absent from these remixes. These tracks are a great disservice to Sinead's Troy as well as the reputations of the remixers. If you have The Lion & The Cobra, you're all set. If not, buy it!

formulaic rote club "music" 10 Oct. 2003
By D. H. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For the most part these remixes lack even an ioata of the originality, creativity or spark of the original song. They represent just about the worst of current "club music" and why that genre is dying a painful death.
I can't imagine fans getting into these mixes much and most DJ's would probably find these mixes no different from 100s of others spat out in the past 5 or 6 years. Avoid.

Troy 16 Jan. 2003
By "boyjamm34" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard a preview of this intense Oconner's remix some time last year. I knew I had to have the remixes right then so I went out to a local music store and they did not have it. Well, today, that same music store happened to have only two copies left. I am not a fan of Sinead Oconner but the remixes of Troy will take you from the dance floor to a spiritual realm and safely back as you dance and rise again and again from the ashes only to be reborn into the true dance music lover that you always were. This enhanced cd contains the smashing video for the song which is laced with some kewl special effects!!
