Product Description

Product Description

Import version features a different tracklisting to the US pressing. EMI.


With a distinctive voice and controversial statements, Sinead O'Connor was briefly in the limelight and quickly in the doghouse. But even her opinionated politics can't take away from the beautiful work she's contributed to the post-punk canon. O'Connor's poignant delivery of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U," is still heart-wrenchingly painful. "Troy" is equally evocative. So Far... The Best of Sinead O'Connor provides a thorough sampling of O'Connor's early years. Emotionally charged rockers like "Emperor's New Clothes" and "Mandinka" are essential inclusions, as are her rhythmic explorations with Bomb The Bass, "Empire," and the early "I Want Your (Hands On Me)." Sadly, her Cole Porter contribution to Red, Hot, And Blue was omitted. But O'Connor proves she rightfully deserves diva status with her rendition of "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina." As if there were ever any doubts. --Steve Gdula

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.

I am glad that the title of the album is So far... the best of Sinead O'Connor. I hope there will be plenty more albums in the future. I normally don't go for greatest hit cd's but most of her music I had on bought cassettes and wanted a cd of her music, so I could listen to it in my car. Plus they were wearing out. I still think "The last day of our aquaintance" and "Troy" are still powerful after all this time. I tend to perfer her Irish influenced songs Like, "He moved through the fair" and "Foggy dew" that she performs on the Chieftain's album and wish they had been included. But, I was happy to hear "You made me the thief of your heart" From In the name of the father. I didn't like her "Am I not your girl?" cd so I could live without the "Don't cry for me Argentina" but overall it gives you a chance to see the diverseness of Sinead's music. It's a definate must have especially for new Sinead fans.

The title _So Far_ is hint enough: Charting the breath and depth of Sinéad O'Connor's vision, this ten-year retrospective is a genuine jaw-dropper, testament to how far she's evolved from her days as a post-punk enfant terrible to her late-'90s mother-priestess days - and the vast promise which lays ahead.
Always searching for salvation, O'Connor proves herself to be an audacious artist game enough for any sonic adventure, willing to go out on a limb to seek that epiphanic rapture. Sad it is that many have shunned her in the wake of the controversy surrounding her papal-shredding skit on American TV; for this resonant collection shows the extent of debt the current crop of Lilith Fair ladies owe her. Make no mistake, a slew of wannabes has appropriated her melismatic vocal stylings from heaven to back, and yet the Irish iconoclast remains untouchable in her unwavering commitment and unflinching honesty.
Blessed with an ear for effortless melody and a knack for direct, unembellished lyrics, the versatile singer bares her soul like no contemporary of hers can. She can do rocker-sexy in the hormonally-charged 'I Want Your (Hands On Me)'; eerie-beautiful in the hip-hop-inflected Irish dirge 'I Am Stretched On Your Grave'; as well as fiery-explosive in the apocalyptic-dub diatribe 'Fire On Babylon'.
It's not just that she's prodigiously-gifted. What's in her favour in the long run is O'Connor's unique asset - she knows how to get to the core to each song. Intuitive enough to turn an obscure Prince castaway to an unforgettable ballad or a familiar show-tune like 'Success Has Made a Failure of Our Home' into a hair-raisingly personal biopic, she remains unparalleled.

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.
