Her voice is flawless in its technical imperfections; she begins each song delicately but ultimately erupts with the ferociousness of a punk. Her greatest vocal achievement is perhaps her interpretation of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” a classic torch song she quite simply owns. […]

Such conviction may not make for a very humble prayer, but it makes for a promise that, judging from her breathtaking second album, Sinéad O’Connor is determined to fulfill. […]
