  1. 90
    [A] well-programmed compilation. [Jun 2005, p.79]
  2. All in all it's as essential a piece of O'Connor's history as anything in her catalog.
  3. Collaborations is a reasonably diverse batch of songs -- nearly all of them enjoyable, and some of them quite inspired.
  4. 60
    What's disappointing is how evenly-tempoed and sedate the pace is. [Jun 2005, p.95]
  5. O'Connor's lack of subtlety eventually grows tiring.

There's a LOT! I think my favorite might be the one with Peter Gabriel, but I like listening to all of the different songs because of all the different flavors. Like icecream! Expand

    Sinead has a beautiful voice and is a perfect collaborative artist. However, the absence of "Haunted" with Shane Macgowan and the Popes is Sinead has a beautiful voice and is a perfect collaborative artist. However, the absence of "Haunted" with Shane Macgowan and the Popes is absolutely unforgivable . It may be a little strange compared to the rest of the relatively safe offering, but the album still feels incomplete without it. Expand
