Great forgotten album of the Nineties,
By A Customer
This review is from: Universal Mother (Audio CD)
This is a truly excellent piece of work, one of the great but shamefully ignored albums of the Nineties. The myth prevails today that Sinead O'Connor was a one hit, cover-version wonder, but this largely self-penned collection shows how wrong that perception is. OK, so Famine is a little embarrassing, and the Am I Human interlude from her son upsets the flow, but most of the rest is magnificent - emotionally enriching, simply melodic tracks, beautifully sung. The acapella In This Heart, in particular, was the best thing ever done on Jools Holland's show and it's equally stunning here.
Buy this album now - it's a rare gem.
