SINÉAD O'CONNOR / Throw Down Your Arms (2005)
Featuring tracks originally recorded by Burning Spear, The Abyssinians, Peter Tosh, and Bob Marley and The Wailers, among others, it’s a slickly produced album that's genuine reggae at heart, not watered-down pop versions of reggae.
Overall, it’s a mostly successful endeavour that recognises that Jah or God, Kingston or Dublin, here or there or anywhere, is all the same in a relative way.
Songs of Note: Vampire; Y Mas Gan
