10If you liked the Cranberries in the past you won't be disappointed by this album. 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! :)… Collapse

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
The Cranberries seem to be at a point where I'm beginning to wonder if they have anything else to offer us. 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
