I bought The Lion And The Cobra (Sineads debut album) a few years back on the strength of Troy (an absolute classic) but avoided getting I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got as I suspected it wasn't as good. Yes, Nothing Compares 2U is great but I had my doubts about the rest. Then someone gave me a tape with the track The Emporers New Clothes on it, and I finally gave in and bought the cd.
Very pleasantly suprised - the quality is as good as her debut, very well written songs and Sineads voice is amazingly powerful and full of emotion. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to trying her later albums, but for the moment this is permanently in my cd player (PS if you haven't already guessed, The Lion And The Cobra is a must-have too!)
