Sinead O’Connor: Saint Sinead

Fred Mills, Harp, November 2005

SINEAD O'CONNOR'S career to date has included at least two major artistic peaks separated, significantly, by 12 years: 1990's I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, featuring her staggering cover of Prince's 'Nothing Compares 2 U', and 2002's Sean-Nos Nua, a haunting collection of traditional Irish tunes. In between, however, have been some curious professional detours and no shortage of growing-up-in-public flameouts, so it's not surprising that journalists have tended to dwell upon the so-called "outrageous stuff." That's what sells papers, after all.
