    I personally loved it, I think most of the songs have really interesting arrangements and stuff, but I'm still able to understand some critics' opinions, it's not perfect at all, but if you were a Cranberries' fan or you like good Pop/Rock music with some experiments here and there, you'll probably enjoy this.

  1. These clean, open arrangements tend to make the songs seem catchier than they actually are--the hooks don't grab, they repeat like softened incantations that never quite catch hold--but that does give No Baggage an nice, gentle shimmer that's appealing.
  2. She retains a beautiful voice, but this sophomore solo album is undone by a batch of not-so-great songs. She wallows in more melodrama than might be expected, while trying to be self-consciously profound.
  3. Regardless of how good the voice is, if the music does not follow suit then there's only so far you can get.
