Sinéad OConnors first album comes on like a banshee wail across the bogs. Blending the uncompromising force of folk music, the sonic adventurousness of the Eighties and lyrics that draw on classical history, ghost tales and the Bible, The Lion and the Cobra is easily one of the most distinctive debut albums of the last year. Though OConnor now lives in London, she grew up in Dublin, and the grim, uncontrollable romanticism of Irish traditional music sets the emotional tone for The Lion and the Cobra. Jackie, the first song on the album, tells the story of a woman who wanders the shore long after her death, awaiting the return of her lover lost at sea.

The Lion and the Cobra Q&A. Sinéad O'Connor's debut, The Lion and the Cobra, was a sensation upon its 1987 release, and it remains a distinctive record, finding a major talent striving to achieve her own voice. Like many debuts, it's entirely possible to hear her influences, from Peter Gabriel to Prince and contemporary rap, but what's striking about the record is how she synthesizes these into her own sound - an eerie, expansive sound heavy on atmosphere and tortured passion. Sinéad O'Connor's first studio album was released in 1987. There is no data available on how the album did on the Irish album charts, but it sold considerably well in various countries being most successful in the Netherlands and New Zealand where it peaked at no. 4 on the charts as well as Canada where it was certified platinum.
