Why? Haven't I suffered enough?

yes, and the last album, Throw Down Your Arms, was a brilliant reggae record she made with sly and robbie featuring all Rasta songs. she brought a great deal of respect and honor to these songs, not just in my opinion, but confirmed by sly and robbie. yes, i had the rarified opportunity to spend a few hours hanging with sly and robbie in new york the night after they played with sinead at webster hall (which was truly one of the greatest shows i've seen in years) and both confirmed that they were hugely impressed by the respect sinead brought to the roots rasta music she chose for the record. in fact, burning spear was playing congas behind sinead all night while she sang a whole mess of his songs. so the dreads obviously respect her, now what was the source of the trash talking that inspired you to start such a thoughtfull and intelligent thread? you still pissed she tore up a picture of the pope?

Haa. I'm not religious. I just find her voice incredibly off putting. The album is being promoted as her first in 10 years on a music show I saw, I guess they were wrong about that. Maybe they said 'solo' album, I'm not sure. But it is being promoted to the public and I'm one of the public, and I have to hear it on my tv. You're obviously a fan of her, an opinion you're entitled to. I'm also entitled to my opinion, and I put it in the moan zone. Of course you could have just said nothing and let the thread fade away, but then you would have had to pass on the chance to tell us how you hung with Sly and Robbie for a couple of hours again.
Cheers.

I thought she had said she was retiring from the music.

Who are "we"? I personally think that Sinead is great. Although she is not "technically" the greatest vocalist, she is unique and has her own style, which is lacking in the industry today. You have a right to your opinion, but when you say "we", people who disagree will tend to respond.

That's a fair enough point Art. I'll change it to I. People who disagree will always respond, and good on them for voicing their opinion.
Cheers.
