Sinead O'Connor: Universal Mother

Sylvie Simmons, MOJO, October 1994

AN ALBUM ABOUT MOTHERS – MOTHER as God, mother as Ireland, mother as sex, mother as violence, giver of life, saver of life, withholder of love, the macrocosmic-microcosmic extreme fucker-upper. It's a surprise John Lennon's Mother isn't on there.

Total word count of piece: 459
