OCONNOR,SINEAD - I DO NOT WANT WHAT I HAVENT GOT
This is the impassioned, creative breakthrough Sinead OConnor was working toward with her extraordinary debut THE LION AND THE COBRA. Boldly combining OConnors hard-rock, alternative-rock, hip-hop and Celtic-folk influences,
I DO NOT WANT WHAT I HAVENT GOT was widely heralded as one of the best albums of 1990. On it OConnor proves herself a first-rate writer, articulate, perceptive and penetrating. Her vocal magic is well under control, from tempestuous command to all-out fury; she shows that she is a world-class singer, way beyond the restrictions of being an alternative-rock diva.
The obvious highlight among highlights is OConnors definitive rendition of Princes Nothing Compares 2 U (originally performed by The Family). Other remarkable songs here include Black Boys On Mopeds, a political treatise on Britians racial affairs, and The Emperors New Clothes, a pop-funk number in which OConnor provides some anecdotal background for her seemingly strange behavior. There is not one disappointing track on this album.
