Product Description

Amazon.ca

Stars draws together, chronologically, the Cranberries' very best work. Their worldwide hit debut album is represented by the soft Celtic lilt of "Linger" and "Dreams". The follow-up, No Need to Argue, contributes five tracks, including the grungy "Zombie", while the anti-drug treatise "Salvation" and the street-corner-style "When You're Gone" appear from To the Faithful Departed, along with "Hollywood" and "Free to Decide". Both 1999's Bury the Hatchet and 2001's Wake Up and Smell the Coffee feature strongly as well, the latter being marked by the new-found contentment of the band's hitherto spiky vocalist Dolores O'Riordan.

As often with best-of packages, previously unreleased material is included, but as fans will know, the main reason to possess this CD is the Cranberries' unique combination of agonised love songs, vicious invective and beautiful melodies. --Dominic Wills

4.0 out of 5 stars Out with a BANG! June 19 2006
Format:Audio CD
Delores O'Riordan definitely chose a perfect time to disband this band. Although their legacy is an amazing one, had they gone on, they may have had to stoop to something very "pop-sounding", and that wouldn't be good.

The Cranberries greatest hits are defintely their greatest. To say they went out on top is not exactly accurate, but to say they went out at their peak is.

The Berries best songs came from "No Need To Argue," which is also their best album. This is proven by the fan-picked, non-single, "Daffodil Lament." I personally would have picked "Forever Yellow Skies" from "Faithful Departed", but this is a classic song anyway. "Zombie" was an incredibly good song, and I'm glad they didn't edit it, unlike "Promises", which IS edited on this compliation.

Bottom line, if you like all the songs on this cd, I suggest going out and buying their previous albums as well...it'll definitely give you an idea of what their legacy is all about!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection May 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Though some of their best is still missing from this album, at least "Promises", and "Zombie" are on this album, those are both amazing songs that I still listen to daily, anyway if you're a fan, this CD is a great addition to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars most of their best April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good collection of the Cranberries hits and should-be hits. Basicaly, most of their best tunes. This Celtic folk-turned-rock band from Ireland has really impressed me for many years. I love Dolores' vocals. She's original and has a great sense of melody. I also like it when they give their stuff a slightly heavier edge. Some d*ckass reviewer once criticized Dolores when she sometimes sings in a low whispery voice like on the album "No Need to Argue" but I saw nothing wrong with her doing that. Whether it's high pitch loud or deeper and lower, her singing voice is niiiiice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irish "Stars". April 21 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
This is a pretty good collection from the best selling Irish group of all time, after "U2". However, it seems more like a "Greatest Hits" than a "Best Of", if you know what I mean. It's really heavy on all their pop-rock tracks (Zombie, Hollywood), which tend to sound the same after awhile. I myself enjoy the more moody and lush side of the band (Pretty, Disappointment). I also wish there was more than two tracks from the debut, seeing that most of the other albums have four on here. But what's included is all good, and it's hard to complain when you get 20 tracks, including two good new ones. Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars some good songs Nov. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
If this were Dolores and The Cranberries Greates Hits probably would get 4 stars. There are some beautiful songs, mainly in the first part. Some others should had not be incluided. In general, Stars is a pop album with too similar musical arregments. The musicians--the guitarrist, for example--shows some laziness, certain lack of imagination. If looking for quality, probably it is better to buy "Not need to argue". If you are just a new fan "Stars" is a good star point.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sweetest Thing... Sept. 3 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is it!!! One of the best compilations of one band ever assembled. Though many of the songs are shortened to their single versions, it does not detract from the incredible completeness of The Cranberries thus far. "This Is The Day" is one of the most overlooked songs of all time. It's worth picking up the album just for the new track "Stars" alone. "New New York" fits right in, too, even if the theme has been a bit overdone these past couple of years.
