Sinead O’Connor sings heartfelt pop and rock on “I’m Not Bossy , I’m The Boss”

E-mail Print

It has been a few years since we heard from Irish songstress Sinead O’Connor, who came to prominence with a heartfelt cover of the Prince penned song“ Nothing Compares 2 U,”  back in 1990 then rose to infamy  by tearing up a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live, which basically sent her underground and pretty much ended her mainstream music career.Click here to hear Sinead O’Connor
 She‘s back with a new CD  “ I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss” which she has dedicated to herself. It’s a good one, it has been stuck in my CD player for months.

 She is the boss on this CD as she wrote or co wrote all of the songs on the CD and explores a variety of themes, mostly, love, lust, growing up, looking back and even sings about religion on “ Take Me To Church.” O’Connor still sounds like a tortured soul looking back on a lifetime of regrets.

 She shows her angry side on “ Harbour.”  But for the most part there is also a lot of love throughout the CD and a lot of love songs.
 She also explores several different musical styles from pop, synth pop, ’80s pop on the last couple tracks of the CD and even a touch of Jefferson Airplane style psychedelic rock full of loud guitars like on  “Take Me To Church” and  “ The Voice of My Doctor”.
 O’ Connor has a distinctively wavering voice that is immediately appealing.
