Sinead O' Connor - Theology

2007-08-02 13:15
Sounds exciting, but Sinead mostly lives and works with tedious dignity, releasing solo albums and best of collections with annoying, excessive regularity.

Cue Theology. I't a pleasant, professional, but basically dull theology-themed collection of covers and O’Connor originals. She’s more interesting when she’s with other people, and come on, chick, there’s a reason you’re the first to pick that title!

Of course, Sinead’s no idiot. If you’re into heartfelt Irish-flavoured violin pop with a few plinky piano bits, then warm memories of the 80s and 90s will be flooding back from the moment you press play. If you’re not, put the beat-driven rasta-pop ditty “33” and the breathily atmospheric “Whomsoever Dwells” on your MP3 player. They’re both pleasantly cheesy, and sweet in small doses, but forgettable too.

Actually, rather tune into: Collaborations (2005)

- Jean Barker

Sinead shaved her head. Sinead sexily combined vicious attacks on enemies with elf-like beauty that launched a million lesbians. She told the Pope where to get off. Good for her. Nothing compares to her cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares to U”.
