The fourth full-length studio album by legendary Irish Alternative/Chamber Folk/Pop Rock singer.
Sinéad O'Connor's first album of original material since her breakthrough, "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got", is nearly as confused as her big-band album, "Am I Not Your Girl?". 
O'Connor explores the uncharted depths of "the real loveless family traumas", which mainstream, predominantly male, Rock music tends to avoid, and her journey is made more intense by her identity as both a mother and a daughter.
O'Connor painted the cover art herself, which was inspired by a rebirthing session she experienced, and her song "All Babies".
Listening to the album can be "unnerving", as O'Connor "can still sing like an angel, but she also sometimes writes lyrics like an emotional dyslexic.
Track 1 written and performed by Germaine Greer, under licence from BBC Enterprises Ltd. (P)1970.
Track 5 written, produced and performed by Jake Reynolds, the son of Sinéad O'Connor.
Chrysalis/Ensign Records Ltd., 1994 (7243 8 30549 2 3). Made in Germany. Re-press.
