A Personal Favourite
on 7 May 2017
It was 1987 and the charts once again seemed dominated by artistes signed to Stock, Aitken and Waterman. There were exceptions though, and Sinéad O’Conner was one of these, hitting us with this fantastic début album. Certainly this seemed to make a lot of us sit up and pay attention, as this was something with guts and power.
I remember originally buying this on cassette so that I could play it whilst commuting to and from work, and then eventually CD. This has a certain cleanness about it which helps add to the atmosphere that is built throughout. With tacks that are allegorical and at times the downplaying of the music this makes for something that is still great to listen to.
Using good musicians and production values this still has that certain something, making it well worth listening to. And, yes the spoken piece on track five, ‘Never Get Old’ which is in Gaelic is the voice of Enya.
I suspect we all have our own favourites from this album and it is still worth getting out and playing for younger generations, showing them that we listened to great stuff when we were younger, and it wasn’t all the same.
