Editors’ Notes

The Cranberries smartly teamed up with their original producer, Stephen Street, for their first studio album in more than a decade. Singer Dolores O'Riordan has matured as a vocalist, shearing off her delivery’s gritty edges for a prettiness her younger self might have rejected as too soft. Several of the tunes—"Someday," "Raining in My Heart," "Astral Projections"—were reportedly scheduled for their 2004 album that never was, and the ensuing years have given the group a stronger authority on the material. The ballads here are especially well-executed, with "Fire & Soul" combining acoustic guitars and electronic textures to soothing results. "Tomorrow" reflects the advantage of perspective that comes with age. "Schizophrenic Playboy" builds in layers of sound redolent of shoegaze, with a sharp ‘90s alt-rock overlay. By staying close to what they do best and having a better idea of how to stay in their zone, The Cranberries have made a comeback album that's a worthy improvement to their catalog. The deluxe edition adds live versions of two classics: "Linger" and "Zombie." 

Customer Reviews

Cranberries Sound is Mashed under Bog of Boredom

Much as I wanted it to be there, the former fire and passion and intensity of The Cranberries must have been mashed under a thousand feet into the bottom of a cranberry bog. This new offering is slushy, derivative, entirely devoid of imagination. The lyrics are on-the-nose; meaning I could anticipate every next word and every next note. And, hello, not *every* word at the end of *every* phrase has to rhyme!!! To make matters worse, the same phrase of boring lyrics is often repeated, again and again. Dolores never cuts loose, never gives voice as only she could. Not ever. As a musician myself, I'm a bit infuritated that a band like this produced an offering like this. When all a new LP does is make the listener ask "what happened?" and "I so miss the original sound" it can't be a good thing. I'm sorry to say, "Roses" is not a good thing. At all.

Favorite since No Need to Argue!

Songs that you must have: Conduct, Raining in My heart, Roses, & Schizophrenic Playboy :) I'm super excited for this album!!!!! Dolores' voice in Raining in my heart is awesome!

Welcome Back Cranberries

I am SO PSYCHED for this new album! It sounds like a more mature version of the first Cranberries albums. Love it!!

I'll be listening to this album every single day until the concert on July
4th!

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...
