In case you can't guess from the title, Collaborations is a collection of previously released tracks recorded by the hairless Irish firebrand with other artists. The disc has two parts: first, a handful of totally dated-sounding premillennial triphop from the days when artists tried to sound more worldly by weaving pan flutes and sitars into their tracks. Remember Afro Celt Sound System? They're here, along with Bomb the Bass and Massive Attack. O'Connor's vocals are muted in the sea of yawn-inducing ambient synths and sluggish beats. She fares better with the more conventional pop balladry on the disc's second half. There's nothing mind-blowing here, but she's thrown in a decent The The duet (the sexy Kingdom Of Rain), and U2's I'm Not Your Baby, which appeared on Wim Wenders's The End Of Violence soundtrack and showcases our pope-knocking priestess at her most vicious.
