Customer Reviews

This is one of THE Best albums ever composed by a band!
While these songs seem like one sad song after another, they are so beautiful and mellow that sometimes they just really fit my mood.
Lonnie E. Holder
This album put to rest any suggestions that the Cranberries' music lacked substance.

Following up a remarkable debut album can pose quite a problem for a musical artist or group, but the Cranberries shrugged off any hint of a sophomore slump and really outdid themselves with this album. It doesn't have quite the appeal and ethereal magic of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, but the complexity and maturity of No Need To Argue is really quite remarkable. Rather than trying to repackage the appeal of their first effort, the Cranberries greatly extended their musical tendrils into the solid ground of serious, socially conscious, heart-stirring lyrics. This album doesn't have the instantaneous listenability of what came before, but that is largely due to the fact that this album is a much more personal, revealing statement on the part of singer and songwriter Dolores O'Riordan. We see a richer, somewhat darker side of the Cranberries in these thirteen songs. Leading the charge is Zombie. I for one love this song; some might say its atypically heavy, rocking delivery doesn't fit the Cranberries' style or O'Riordan's voice, but I say the song merely goes to show the versatility of the band. This was not the type of music expected from this group at the time, and that makes it an eye-opening triumph in my opinion. Ridiculous Thoughts contains traces of the same hard-driving presentation of Zombie, but really and truly this album is one of plaintiff, melancholy songs. There is a touching sadness to tracks such as Ode To My Family, 21, Empty, Daffodil Lament, and Disappointment. Dreaming My Dreams is a quiet love song O'Riordan wrote and dedicated to her husband. Yeat's Grave is a somber and respectful tribute to poet W.B. Yeats, while the title track is funereal in its presentation.Read more ›

If you had to buy only one CD by the Cranberries it would undoubetly have to be this one. Though the Cranberries' efforts have been spotty throughout their career, this is the one instance where they don't fall prey to writing bad lyrics and stealing other bands' melodies.
What did they do wrong on all their other CDs? To put it simply, they were trying too hard--whether it be trying to deliver some sort of social message or to contrive a certain sound. In conrast, nothing on "No Need to Argue" sounds forced. Songs such as "Ode to My Family" "Empty" and "Yeats' Grave" are just so naturally beautiful, in terms of both lyrics and melody. It's hard not to fall in love with this album.

"No Need To Argue" is one of the most important albums to be released in the decade of the nineties. But you really wouldn't know that, considering that The Cranberries are, I think, one of the most underrated bands of our time. If this album didn't have any influence in today's music scene (and I think it did), it certainly had tremendous impact. "Zombie" is one of the finest anthemic rock numbers of all time, right up there with U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday"... Does anybody recognize this? Sadly, no. Because today's music scene seems to be all about fashion and little else. Well, if that's the case, let's remember that from 1993 to 95, The Cranberries were indeed "a big deal" if that means anything. Back in a time (the early to mid nineties) where it seemed, for one brief shining moment, music and MTV and radio really was worth listening to. And you know what? They accomplished that in such a remarkable way. Dolores O'Riordan had (and to this day HAS) killer pipes, and these guys just had a kanck for cranking out tremendously moving and convincingly powerful melodies. "No Need To Argue" is a contemporary classic, with a brilliant production job by Stephen Street. And yet, it's so simple. A well balanced mix of folk and grunge rock that delivers on so many levels that are constantly rewarding. To date, The Cranberries have recorded four albums. Each of them travelling in different, unexpected directions. This variety keeps the band interesting, and so, I am a fan. But this is by far superior to anything they've done. As much as they've matured musically, they haven't quite topped this superb work.Read more ›

"No need to argue" is a piece of art. It is high art,and very few artists could ever reach such a level. Listening to the album takes you somewhere else: this album is unique, the music is so different from any other sort of music ! I wonder how the musicians used their instruments so that they don't sound like a guitar or keyboards but as mysterious elements used in the creation of a new music. Each song is simply beautiful and pure,and so is Dolores's voice. If you hear the sound of it, you will never forget it. Of course, we all know "Zombie". But listen to the 12 other songs. If you feel like moving and yelling, play "I can't be with you" or "Ridiculous thoughts". If you feel as melancholic as Dolores, listen to "No need to argue" or to "Empty", which is probably the most powerful song on the album. This album reaches perfection, both lyrically and musically, for the words are profoundly touching, and the music is technically perfect. It is just AMAZING how music can change your life !
