Album Review

If the title of Dolores O'Riordan's 2007 debut Are You Listening? asked a question appropriate for the launch of a solo career, the name of her 2009 sophomore effort is a statement of purpose: she's heading into this next phase of her career with no expectations, No Baggage.

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.
