Sinéad O’Con­nor

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - ELECTRICPI­CNIC -

Less than a week ago, Sinéad O’Con­nor showed how it should be done at one of Ire­land’s more salu­bri­ous in­door venues (that’s the Na­tional Con­cert Hall to you, bud), but on Elec­tric Pic­nic’s Main Stage? Jay­sus, we reckon she’ll melt the riv­ets. Cer­tainly, she has no short­age of bril­liant ma­te­rial – not only across her two most re­cent al­bums (2011’s How About I Be Me and You Be You?, and this year’s I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss) but also reach­ing down through the years. But there’s some­thing else at play here – O’Con­nor her­self is cur­rently op­er­at­ing at a pre­mium-grade level, clearly fully en­joy­ing be­ing, well, on top and in charge. She’s not bossy, she’s the Boss – let’s not for­get that, eh?
