Sinead O'Connor - Lion And The Cobra Lion And The Cobra
Pop Used - LP BFV 41612 Chrysalis
1987 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Vinyl Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Shrink Wrap Intact. Features "Mandinka" And "I Want Your (Hands On Me)." “Sinéad O'Connor's Debut, The Lion And The Cobra, Was A Sensation Upon Its 1987 Release, And It Remains A Distinctive Record, Finding A Major Talent Striving To Achieve Her Own Voice. Like Many Debuts, It's Entirely Possible To Hear Her Influences, From Peter Gabriel To Prince And Contemporary Rap, But What's Striking About The Record Is How She Synthesizes These Into Her Own Sound -- An Eerie, Expansive Sound Heavy On Atmosphere And Tortured Passion. If The Album Occasionally Sinks Into Its Own Atmospheric Murk A Little Too Often, She Pulls Everything Back Into Focus With Songs As Bracing As The Hard-Rocking "Mandinka" Or The Sexy Hip-Hop Of "I Want Your (Hands On Me)." Still, Those Ethereal Soundscapes Are Every Bit As Enticing As The Direct Material, Since "Troy," "Jackie," And "Jerusalem" Are Compelling Because Of Their Hushed, Quiet Intensity. It's Not A Perfect Album, Since It Can Succumb To Uneven Pacing, But It's A Thoroughly Impressive Debut -- And It's All The More Impressive When You Realize She Only Topped It With Its Immediate Successor, Before Losing All Focus.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
