Sinéad O'Connor: The Value of Ignorance / The Year of the Horse (2004)

A collection of two live shows previously only available on VHS.
The Year of the Horse (1991) was recorded in Brussels and Rotterdam during October '90. It's a typical concert film from the era that does its job well.
The Value of Ignorance (1989) is a shorter session recorded in June '88 in London. It's been put through various image filters to make it more appealing to people with a wavering attention span. In truth, you could smother the visuals in putty and shit, but Sinéad's voice, the vibrancy and the bubbling anger that threatens to burst forth like a geyser, would still make it worth watching. If you hadn't guessed already, it's my favourite of the two. That version of Troy! Fuck yeah, Sinéad.
