Faith and Courage

by: Sinéad O'Connor

On Faith and Courage, her fifth studio album, Sinéad O'Connor sounds both lonely and afraid ("Jealous," "Dancing Lessions") and fiercely confident ("No Man's Woman"). The sorrowful "Hold Back the Night" and the Celtic reggae of "The Lamb's Book of Life" -- the latter a slap against her native Ireland -- are among her most honest songs. Despite the spiritual content, O'Connor's bitterness prevails. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
