Album Review

With their surprise success behind them, the Cranberries went ahead and essentially created a sequel to Everybody Else is Doing It, So Why Can't We with only tiny variations, with mixed results. The fact that the album is essentially a redo of previously established stylistic ground isn't apparent in just the production, handled again by Stephen Street, or the overall sound, or even that one particularly fine song is called "Dreaming My Dreams." Everybody wasn't a laugh riot, to be sure, but No Need to Argue starts to see O'Riordan take a more commanding and self-conscious role that ended up not standing the band in good stead later. Lead single "Zombie" is the offender in this regard — the heavy rock trudge isn't immediately suited for the band's strengths (notably, O'Riordan wrote this without Noel Hogan) — while the subject matter (the continuing Northern Ireland tensions) ends up sounding trivialized. Opening cut "Ode to My Family" is actually one of the band's best, with a lovely string arrangement created by O'Riordan, her overdubbed vocals showing her distinct vocal tics. Where No Need succeeds best is when the Cranberries stick at what they know, resulting in a number of charmers like "Twenty One," the uilleann pipes-touched "Daffodil's Lament," which has an epic sweep that doesn't overbear like "Zombie," and the evocative "Disappointment."

The best

Ode to my family and zombie are the best songs in this albm

A Great Album

It's very rare to listen to an album - any album - and enjoy every track on it. Yet, this is what "No Need to Argue" is all about. It's a great album. I can listen to the entire thing from start to finish, without skipping a track. The instrumentals are perfect, as is Doloras' vocals. The music itself is very relaxing as well. A wonderful album to own. The best songs are "Ode to My family", "I Can't Be with You", "Twenty One", the amazing single "Zombie" (which got me listening to the band in the first place), "Yeat's Grave", and "Daffodil Lament".

Great Album

This is probably my favorite album of all time. I grew up listening to this. "Zombie" is still my favorite song.

Biography

Formed: 1990 in Ireland

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Combining the melodic jangle of post-Smiths indie guitar pop with the lilting, trance-inducing sonic textures of late-'80s dream pop and adding a slight Celtic tint, the Cranberries became one of the more successful groups to emerge from the pre-Brit-pop U.K. indie scene of the early '90s. Led by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, whose keening, powerful voice is the most distinctive element of the group's sound, the group initially made little impact in the United Kingdom. It wasn't until the lush ballad...
