Always one to take risks, Sinead O'Connor offers up a two disc set with a twist. Disc one is a set of hushed, spiritual demos cut in Dublin, while disc two features razzle-dazzled London studio versions that sometimes radically alter the interpretations and sometimes just gently flesh out her demo ideas. This includes a rich cover of Curtis Mayfield's "We the People Who Are Darker than Blue" (even though it's not really one of Mayfield's many theological themed songs). We give the edge to the stripped down demos – save money by staying out of London studios, Ms. O'Connor.
