Sinéad O’Connor has joined the list of musicians to criticize the release of U2’s new album, Songs of Innocence.  Sinead calls calls U2’s decision to automatically upload it to people’s iTunes account:

…A badly judged move. I blame U2 for not standing by their album and just putting it out and instead opting to force it on people who didn’t want it in the first place. There was something almost terrorist about it.  I’m really not a U2 fan but it wasn’t at all kosher invading people’s lives like that. It was bad management.
