It seems that many professional reviewers are somewhat misguided by musicians who can neither sing or play any instrument in their reviews. This album pretty much continues the discography of the Cranberries as if they have never taken a break. One small difference: The album is somewhat more mature, but this is just fine because most fans have matured as well. Riordan voice is still one of the best there is. Not without reason she has been chosen to sing in duet with vocal wonders like Pavarotti in the past.
If you have never heard or seen the magic of the Cranberries, you should check out their spontaneous studio concert on NPR from the week before. Just amazing! They must be one of the few bands left who sound that great with minimum effort. No voice enhancers or pre-recorded singing here...
I can't wait to see them live soon. Hope they will add a Bay Area concert to their tour soon!
Enjoy! :)… Expand
Feb 29, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Valio la pena la espera. Me parece un buen album. Dolores O'Riordan demuestra que sigue siendo una de las mejores voces de los ultimos 20 aÃ±os y mantiene un nivel alto a lo largo de todo el disco. Especialmente en temas como "Waiting In Walthamstow", "Conduct" o "Schizophrenic Playboy" sale a relucir toda su calidad vocal. La banda se muestra madura, compacta y homogenea, haciendo de "Roses" un grato momento. Mas que recomendable… Expand

Granted, there are four really great tracks on this album, but there are also other tracks that really disappoint. It's an album about desperation for companionship, and all it really left me feeling was a desperate want for these guys to kick it back into what made people fall in love with them in the 90's.… Expand
Apr 26, 2012After eleven years like a zombie which once sang about - The Cranberries are back with their sixth album. Dolores O'Riordan again regales usAfter eleven years like a zombie which once sang about - The Cranberries are back with their sixth album. Dolores O'Riordan again regales us with the swirling melodies on the album carried by her characteristic timbre of voice . The CD is not outstanding - will not find same hits here whom once totaled band to the top. A very interesting and certainly standing out here is the single "Tomorrow," but also "Raining In My Heart" or the ballad "Astral Projection" are noteworthy. Notable entry only for fans of the band.… Expand
