Their first full-length shows a band fully formed, with faint debts to the Sundays and the Smiths, but turning out more-than-tuneful pop behind the gorgeous lilt of Dolores O'Riordan. "Dreams" and "Linger" both seem to weave magic spells that remain even after the tracks pass, and there is a glorious freshness to the performances that's impossible to resist. It remains their most satisfying outing. --Chris Nickson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This remarkable CD is, in my opinion, the most remarkable debut album I have ever heard. I fell in love with the song Linger as soon as I heard it, so I naturally went right out and bought the album. I was impressed then and I'm still impressed. This music is so distinctive and achingly beautiful that it remains as fresh and enjoyable now, all these years later, as it did then. It is ironic that an album with such a long name features songs with short titles, but the overall disc really takes precedence over the individual songs. I actually have trouble remembering the title for each song, but this is primarily because this album is almost organic in its completeness, simply teeming with life and substance. I just don't put this CD in the drive and listen to a song here or there; I have to experience the whole thing every time I play it. I'm not sure how this distinctive type of music should be classified; I don't know if its primary influence is Welsh or Celtic or something else. All I know is that Dolores O'Riordan has the most distinctive voice I have ever heard, and her vocals make each song hauntingly beautiful and absolutely amazing. This album creates a surreal atmosphere inside your mind and really and truly hypnotizes you with its power. I love every single song on here; Linger is of course my favorite, while I Still Do and Dreams stand out slightly from the crowd, but the quality of this music is spread lavishly from start to finish. This is as polished and unbelievably complete an album as a group or artist can hope to deliver. Even the Cranberries, as much as I love their music, have never quite been able to recapture the magic of this first album.
I will end my lavish praise of this CD by pointing out the great utility of its music.

This album, their debut, is no doubt their deepest and most meaningful work. It contains probably their biggest hit "Dreams" and several others that I have heard on the radio. "Dreams" is a beautiful piece, the music is haunting and Dolores's voice is very soft and pretty. "Sunday" is my favorite track on the whole album, the beginning is very beautiful and it goes into a nice poppy-sounding beat. "Pretty" is good, but not outstanding."Waltzing back" is beatiful,a very good track. "Not sorry" is nice sounding, pleasing to the ear, "Linger" is another classic, it's nice and soft and the strings are a nice touch."Wanted" didn't really touch me that much, "Still can't" is a nice track, but a bit of a filler, "I will always" is very soft and her voice conveys the meaning of the song very well. "How" is a nice punkish-rock piece, "Put me down" is haunting and another one of my favorites. So, in conclusion, if you're looking for music that will relax you and make you think, this is definitely the album you're looking for.

This CD was The Cranberries' first, and was refreshing even though they deviated little from middle of the road pop. Perhaps it was the combination of Dolores O'Riordan's lovely Irish voice delivered periodically in a grunge style that made this debut so fun to listen to. In general the music here is safe, though the lyrics sometimes are not. The Cranberries have a history of choosing sometimes distressing topics for their music. It can sometimes be uncomfortable to confront their world, which seems to be so tainted by despair and a variety of angst.
"I Still Do" is an angst-ridden track, heavy on mellow bass, about someone who is in love, and wants to break it off, even though the person is still in love. The reason for breaking it off is not clear, and perhaps it need not be. This song is the generic break up song when you have mixed feelings about the relationship, but realize that it is in at least one person's best interests to end the relationship.
We go from the angst of a possibly impossible relationship to the dream relationship in "Dreams", which was also featured in "You've Got Mail". A pretty, fast-paced, song, Dolores tells her significant other that she has given herself to him, and he now has her heart, so please don't hurt her. Even more, she also says that she is amazed by his mind and how caring and understanding he is. The ethereal music with a rock beat I personally find to be very satisfying.
We go back to angst again with "Sunday". This time the singer cares for or loves someone, but can't seem to make the connection. This situation has happened to me, and I'll bet it's happened to many of you. Dolores starts singing this one is a grunge style, slowly, then the pace picks up and the song attains a solidly pop beat.

It's so fun reading other reviews because you learn something about the CD and the other people reviewing the CD. You also realize that there are as many goals for an artist in creating a CD as there are in the listeners of the CD.
In the case of this CD, Dolores O'Riordan and company tried to create something totally different from everyone else. The music has a pop flavor, but generally isn't pop. The music also has a "world" flavor, which is where Enya is classed, but the music is not world either. There are a few moments where the music has a progressive flavor, but the music is not progressive either. Guess what. This music is unique.
Stick to the comparisons already made. The Cranberries are not wannabe Enyas. They wanted to create their own style, and they did.
Of the three Cranberries CDs I own, this one is my personal favorite. Dolores moans and emotes her way through selection after selection, and focuses more on establishing a feeling than the lyrics. Occasionally lyrics pop through clearly and simply enough that you find yourself singing along for brief moments and humming the rest.
This music is mood music. It is somewhat cohesive throughout, which for some people can seem boring. I like the emotional concept which forms a theme, and I always wish the CD had been longer when I get to the end. When I'm in the proper mood, I can listen to this CD for hours. When I'm out of the mood, the CD will sit on the shelf for months.
Having said all that, a few of the selections stand out on this excellent CD. "Dreams" has gotten a lot of air play, and is one of the best cuts. "Linger" is an awesome tune that crossing the fine line into pop. "Put Me Down" is another song that is similar in feeling to these.
