I is for I do not want what I haven’t got.
Like most people, I was unaware that Sinéad O’Connor existed prior to Nothing Compares 2 U hitting the Number One spot in 1990.
I was so taken by it that I not only bought this album but also her debut, Lion and the Cobra.
I mean, that voice. So emotive. So powerful. You can tell that she means every single word.
Listening to this album still feels like a spiritual experience.
I remember listening to a live broadcast on BBC Radio One of one of her gigs from that time and being blown away by what I heard.
I do not want what I haven’t got remains one of my favourite albums of all time. Stream it below and visit Albumism for a detailed retrospective.
