Featured in the book "1001 albums you must hear before you die". IMO not as good as her debut album Lion & The Cobra (also £2.99 in the hmv sale), but was her breakthrough album and is likely to appeal to lots of people due to the huge hit "Nothing compares 2U"

This is the impassioned, creative breakthrough Sinead O'Connor was working toward with her extraordinary debut THE LION AND THE COBRA. Boldly combining O'Connor's hard-rock, alternative-rock, hip-hop and Celtic-folk influences, I DO NOT WANT WHAT I HAVEN'T GOT was widely heralded as one of the best albums of 1990. On it O'Connor proves herself a first-rate writer, articulate, perceptive and penetrating. Her vocal magic is well under control, from tempestuous command to all-out fury; she shows that she is a world-class singer, way beyond the restrictions of being an alternative-rock diva.
The obvious highlight among highlights is O'Connor's definitive rendition of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" (originally performed by The Family). Other remarkable songs here include "Black Boys On Mopeds", a political treatise on Britian's racial affairs, and "The Emperor's New Clothes", a pop-funk number in which O'Connor provides some anecdotal background for her seemingly strange behavior. There is not one disappointing track on this album.

I'd agree with you, not as good as the debut Lion & Cobra (Troy is the best).

and is still a good album

but stay away from "Am I Not Your Girl?", I think its about the only album/cd I've bought I've only ever listened to once

and for the extra £3 I'd go for this one ( £5.97 )

some good songs on it, Special Child, Troy etc
