EDITORS’ NOTES

Stars speaks to The Cranberries’ penchant for flawlessly sculpted, instantly recognizable singles. Throughout the ’90s and into the early ’00s, the Irish alt-rockers managed to change up their style every couple of records. “Linger” is enchanting jangle pop that captures singer Dolores O’Riordan’s mezzo-soprano at its most ethereal; on “Zombie,” she and the group get political over loud, grunge-soaked riffs. But maybe the most radical curveball of them all arrives in the form of “Salvation,” a short, frenetic slice of Celtic punk rock pierced with ska horns.
