Our Review

With all her notoriety, it’s easy to forget that Sinéad O’Connor is at heart a singer possessed with a singularly expressive voice, one that carries with it a sense of weeping in its tremulous brilliance. This is never more in evidence than with Throw Down Your Arms, her collection of roots reggae classics by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and others. Recorded in Jamaica during the spring of 2005 with the legendary Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare producing, this album also features an all-star line-up of reggae greats lending instrumental expertise. Sly & Robbie bring out O’Connor’s emotive strengths, settling for minimal arrangements that allow her to reach that rare solemnity that informs her strongest work. O’Connor is, after all, that rare vocalist who can perform a cappella and still be completely captivating. The opening track, Winston Rodney’s “Jah Nuh Dead,” is nearly bare, while Perry’s “Curly Locks” is nicely accented with a sympathetic harmony vocal ensemble. A fine album, and especially welcome from an artist who’s already proclaimed her retirement more than once.

Irie roots music, glad to hear it. (5 stars)
Fans of Roots Reggae will be very satisfied with this album. Sinead's voice works great with reggae music. I was surprised to find so many Burning Spear songs covered and even more surprised at how much I enjoy listening to them! “Door Peep” and “He Prayed” are two of the highlights of this solid recording. There are no pop elements or orchestrations one might expect from a non-reggae artist. This is honest-to-Jah music and I lo

Welcome back Sinead (4 stars)
Few of Sinead’s recordings are this gentle and genuine. Sinead has sublimated the Drama Queen in favor of the dreadlock. The talent and voice are there, but so is the music, and it’s the balance between the two that will make this disc a quiet classic. Try Cut 9 to get an idea of this island affair. It’s background soul food with a squeeze of the lime, and as such is a welcome trip to Ireland’s lost tropics. The fact that these mos

Sinead is a healer (5 stars)
It never ceases to amaze me the depth and the complexity that is woven into each and every one of sineads albums. Her music is much like the celtic knot designs that you frequently see on the covers of her album. Throw down your arms is a prayer..., a meditation. Jah nuh dead sounds like an ancient celtic chant... Sinead goes beyond the bounds of religeon with this album and gets to the heart of the matter... Thanks sinead for your truly

Sinéad O'Connor ranked among the most distinctive and controversial pop music stars of the 1990s, the first and in many ways the most influential of the numerous female performers whose music dominated airwaves throughout the decade. Brash and outspoken — her shaven head, angry visage, and shapeless wardrobe a direct challenge to the popular culture's long-prevailing notions of femininity and sexuality — O'Connor irrevocably altered the image of women in rock; railing against long-standing...
