    Hmmph, appeal to authority. And to one’s own authority, no less. *grin*

    Water’s version of Mother is so iconic that it’s almost not fair to say someone else doesn’t do it as well. After all, we’ve all heard the album so many times we know each little element by heart, right? But while I can hardly imagine anyone doing an acceptable version of Mother, I think Sinead O’Connor knocks it out of the park. She’s got just the right type of voice for this song. Even better, she doesn’t overplay her vocals (she doesn’t go all “Nothing Compares 2U” on it), but downplays it a bit, and leaves almost more hint of that great haunting quality in her voice than powerful demonstration of it, which is all the more effective for creating an element of suggested mystery. I’d never heard her sing this before, so thanks much.Report
