    RIP Sinéad. I love this LP! While I do think that "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got" is a great and iconic album, "The Lion and Cobra" is no slouch. For a debut album, Sinéad knocked it out of the park! I'm not sure how anyone can think this pressing is flat, my copy is full of detail and great separation. The LP is also extremely quiet. The prices of the LP are still reasonable and I would highly recommend grabbing a copy while everyone is trying to get "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got". Big A+!

      RIP Sinéad, you were a fierce artist and a true original.

        Songs are killer, but pressing sounds flat and dead. The music of Mandinka could sound like ear candy, but just plain old flat here. Keep looking.

            What a debut album! Just bought it this weekend and don't regret it at all...especially for $15 at my local record store.
