Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the Irish Alt-Rock quartet, their first studio album in 10 years. Roses contains 11 new songs produced by the band's old friend and collaborator Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur and Kaiser Chiefs). The album features the original Irish four-piece fronted by Dolores O'Riordan, who lit up the charts for over a decade with classics such as "Linger", "Dreams" and "Zombie". They've sold more than 30 million records, with four Top 20 Billboard albums and a total of eight hit singles.

On 'Roses', The Cranberries return to a melancholy mood with stringed instrumentals and lush arrangements.

In 1993, The Cranberries debuted with a sound that incorporated an homage to The Smiths and 1980's guitars and percussion blended with Dolores O'Riordan's soft, airy vocals with just the right amount of angst.

1994's follow-up, 'No Need To Argue' maintained the band's gentle arrangements while refining their rock edge with the hit song, "Zombie". Throughout both of these first two albums, The Cranberries' sound was perfectly captured by producer Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths).

In 1996, for the band's third album, The Cranberries wanted to feature the "rawness" of their live shows by working with Aerosmith producer, Bruce Fairbairn. The result saw Dolores O'Riordan forgoing her signature breathy vocals for powerhouse delivery while the songs, in general, were harder and arguably less cohesive. Though 1996's "To The Faithful Departed" had its share of great songs ("Salvation", "Hollywood", "When You're Gone", "Free to Decide"), it lost the lush, melodic tone and layers of vocals and guitars that were so well-captured by 'Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?' ("Linger", "Dreams") and 'No Need to Argue' ("Ode To My Family", "I Can't Be With You").

After a three-year hiatus, The Cranberries returned in 1999 with 'Bury The Hatchet', co-produced by Benedict Fenner and The Cranberries. While 'Bury The Hatchet' attempted to blend The Cranberries "classic" sound with some of the styles used on 'To The Faithful Departed' (horns and brass instruments as well as stringed instruments), the quality of the songs were lackluster (compared to the band's previous efforts).

Another great album from the Cranberries! It's very much in line with their previous albums, but I'm okay with that. It's WHY I like the Cranberries. They have a sound. It's the sound that made them famous and it's the sound that I've always loved. Too often, bands are coerced into thinking that they need to "evolve" (which is studio exec talk for "up the trendy") and end up with the band doing their impersonation of "new sound" (or even worse, they bring in a flavor-of-the-moment) The Cranberries don't do that. Ever. They make great music like they know how. Every album is just a little tighter than the last. For this album - think of all the great hooks & riffs, all of the haunting lines and Dolores's amazing, beautiful & unique voice. I'm sure it'll be the best purchase I make this year!

Deluxe edition includes a bonus live disc of a concert recorded live in Madrid in December 2010. The songs on Roses come from a band with a renewed hunger and in every corner you'll find the extraordinary sound of Dolores O'Riordan's voice, the pivotal instrument which transformed the band from a group of young Irish hopefuls at the edge of the 80s into an MTV sensation and worldwide super group within just a few short years.

The Irish rock band The Cranberries are back with a new CD 'Roses'. The music (11 new tracks) in this new CD is unmistakenly the sound that made this band famous with hits like "Linger". Lead vocals by Dolores O'Riordan are as great as ever. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks are "Losing My Mind" : I love the wonderful vocals & melody & "Show Me" : inspirational lyrics on being shown the way/direction in life. Great tracks include "Conduct", "Tomorrow", "Fire And Soul", "Waiting In Walthamstow" & title track "Roses". Okay tracks include "Raining In My Heart", "Schizophrenic Playboy" & the slow/mellow "Astral Projections".

On overall, The Cranberries are back following Dolores O'Riordan's solo project as if they have been always been here, unmistakenbly The Cranbberies' sound, a recommended CD listening.

Just a quick word about this album on vinyl.

Fist of all, it was delayed. They promised it back in February 2012, at the same time the cd was coming out. But then nothing came and there was no date the vinyl would be delivered here in the USA. Silence. And I think in the UK it came out without delay.

Finally they started selling in at the end of May. I just got my copy. Alas, all the excitement about the album was gone since I had gotten the cd a long time ago.

It is a good album. Not their best, I think, but still quite good.

The vinyl is a single, black in color LP in a single sleeve. Not heavy 180g vinyl, but it still plays fine.
The inner sleeve is quite thick and has a nice colorful picture of the band on one side and all the lyrics to the songs on the other. I like it.

The LP comes with a code for MP3 download of the album.

Solid 4 stars for me. Would definitely recommend this album on vinyl.
