Jonny, thanks for this review. I just bought the album on iTunes. It's impressive. You're right about her having so much soul.

John Davies

Yes, I liked it too. Songs of beauty and integrity. It's just a shame that she is so possessed by the all-too-easy 'God v Church' opposition, which reduces the potential for even richer conversations about life and faith.


it's not surprising given her experiences though...

John Davies

True, and that's why it's good to have the (mostly oppositional) psalms and prophets in the canon, to help us through the particularly raw stages of our broken journeys. The psalms and prophets are clearly helping her in her spiritual healing. So while enjoying this present collection I look forward to Sinead's future output where I hope she'll embrace more of the riches of the wisdom traditions, maybe even a gospel.. and put The God Who Has To Be Against Something behind her.


i bought it this week too... i think it's absolutely wonderful - a raw and beautiful expression of faith.


thanks for the tip
i'm gonna go and find this album

Thanks for the "heads up" on this - the opening words of the album are hauntingly beautiful and profoundly worshipful.


Stunning, Jonny. Thanks for the link.


Downloaded this last night. Thanks for the fab review and pointing us to this music.
Off to listen again now.


Just Great album! By the way, here is some useful
website devoted to the
Theology album: http://sinead-oconnor-theology.info/


wonderful album- I haven't tired of listening to it yet- though I may be driving my family crazy ( mothers revenge!!!)


Here's an interview with Sinead that was posted on the Christianity Today website. http://www.christianitytoday.com/music/interviews/2007/sineadoconnor-0707.html


thanks - i like sinead's answers but the interviewer is so prejudiced and judgemental - i find it embarrassing!!!

Christianity Today hates the Door - they are also very critical of emerging church. What I learned from Sinead in that interview is how to deal with today's contemporary Pharisees (something that I really struggle with as of late).


Looks like it started out as an interview and then drifted into an inquisition.

Agree that Sinead answered his questions with grace and dignity. Good for her!
