...has some terrible audio quality; I have to crank up the volume just to hear her sing, particularly on "Last day of our acquaintance" and "Fire on Babylon".

This Hits Collection just proved how talented Sinead is!, sadly she's been missunderstood, and all the media focused in the sad moment when she insulted the POPE, I'm catholic, and if something catholic are teach everyday is to forgive, and that's why I believe we should give Sinead another chance, just for the sake of art music, she reaches to different labels in music and her lyrics enbodies a lot of meaning in them. And don't get me started on her enchanted voice, what a voice. When you hear each song, is like living a story, So Far...The Best Of Sinead O Connor is a great collection.

The title of this compilation is misleading, for it does not contain the best of Sinead O'Connor's work. I give it 4 stars because O'Connor deserves 4 stars, at least, not because the choice of songs on here was particularly inspired.
The album starts off like gangbusters, with seven solid tracks in a row. This includes the keening howl and sometimes unsettling intensity of "Troy" and "Mandinka" from "The Lion and the Cobra", the stunning debut album that introduced O'Connor to the world. The mesmerizing "Nothing Compares 2 U" of course makes it on here, as do "I Am Stretched On Your Grave," "The Emperor's New Clothes," and "The Last Day of Our Acquaintance," all from her second album "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got," which showed more mature songwriting and vocal style.
The rest of the album, unfortunately, is hit or miss. Throwaway tracks like "Success Has Made a Failure of Our Home", "I Want Your (Hands on Me)" and the sweet but middling "John I Love You" made it on here in place of more engaging songs. Her guest vocals on Bomb the Bass's "Empire" is also, somewhat inexplicably, included. "Heroine," O'Connor's collaboration with The Edge of U2 fame is a nice, simple touch, but her cover of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" seems unnecessary, especially when she has written far superior songs herself. Even the yearning "You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart" from the "In the Name of the Father" soundtrack sounds a bit turgid here.

As with every artist, if you really only want one cd, then the "best of" should be it. This will be a pleasant suprise for those who only knew "Nothing compares 2 U". It's all as good. The early hit "Mandinka", "The Last day of our acquaintance", "Fire on Babylon", and so many more. This also includes "Don't cry for me Argentina", and "You made me the thief of your heart" from the "In the name of the Father" soundtrack. 15 great songs. My only wish is that this was released after the excellent "Faith and Courage" album, so it could also include "No man's Woman", or the near-perfect "Jealous". Oh well. Still the best place to start listening to her beautiful voice.

It was widely reported a few days ago that Sinead O'Connor is retiring from the music business; if true, I can't think of anything more devastating in regards to music and, better yet, QUALITY, timeless, haunting music. What a bitter blow for us fans, who have come to know this woman through her art. This CD captures some truly amazing moments, but a box-set or double-disc is now overdue(to capture many of her B-sides like "Damn Your Eyes", tribute songs like "I Believe In You", soundtrack songs from Rugrats and You've Got Mail, and lost songs like her cover of "Ode To Billy Joe"). What's here is very, very good--but don't stop here. You have much more ground to cover.

I got into Sinead O'Connor via Faith & Courage last year, and now I bought this CD, which is exceptionally good. I had always thought that "Nothing compares 2U" was her only good song, but boy was i wrong! there is absolutely no filler on this compilation. I like that it's called best of, and not greatest hits, for these songs are truly the best of her work, regardless of silly chart-status --really some of the best stuff that's come out in the last ten years or so. "Nothing compares 2U" is still breathtaking, a timeless classic, but there are many songs just as brilliant here. My favourites are "Fire on Babylon","Success...", "Empire" and "You made me the thief of your heart", songs that have to grow on you, but that you'll want to play 24/7 once they got to you. Highly recommended, just as much as the equally brilliant Faith & Courage.

So far..is what the public needs to remember just what a truly remarkable talent Sinead O'Connor is. She ditched fame as fast as she gained it; but along the bumpy, misunderstood way, She made some great music. Appropriately opening with "Nothing Compares 2 U", a song that is still as startling as it was a decade ago; so far chronicles a body of work that explores the darkest pit of the human heart. "Troy" is as equally haunting if not more and moved up Sinead's ever growing studio experimentation; as with the case in such tunes as "Fire On Babylon" and "I Want Your Hands On Me". No need to rehash her tumultuous past; So Far deals with it and somehow seems to close the book on the pain. Sinead will always be the most mysterious and Joan Of Arc-ish entertainer of our time.
