Sinead O'Connor | Theology

Christianity Today has a superb essay on Sinead O'Connor's new album, Theology.

I probably nerd out and pay special attention to albums with theology in the title. I don't know of that many. There's Jonathan Rundman's Sound Theology. And there's a little gem of a song by Wilco, Theologians. But Sinead's title is legit- it's an album of theology, especially explorations of the Old Testament.

I think my favorite thing about the album so far is that she provides two versions of the songs, the Dublin set that is more acoustic, folky, and prayerful. And then the London sessions, with a fuller ensemble, more poppy in sound. That's a great concept for an album.

There's also a good amount of reggae inspiration.
