The Cranberries seemed to be suffering from musical amnesia when they recorded this third album; at the very least, Dolores O’Riordan was undergoing some type of identity crisis. Basically, this is a Cranberries album, but it is not Cranberries music. Oh, it seems pretty good when you first listen to it, but the quality of songs seems to diminish consistently as the album progresses. Overall, this music is just too heavy-handed. While I did love the song Zombie from No Need to Argue, its rock emphasis is not something I would like to see repeated in every single song. The first four tracks here can be enjoyable and quite catchy at first; I was even quite enamored with Free to Decide initially, but eventually these hard-hitting songs become rather tiresome. The remaining tracks give birth to a new phenomenon; for the first time, O’Riordan’s unique vocal style becomes an increasingly annoying caricature of itself. Then there are the lyrics. O’Riordan seems to think herself a prophetess of love and kindness and is very vocal to the point of shrillness in her condemnation of war. The strident political and socially conscious emphasis can become so overbearing that the diatribe contained in the impassioned lyrics of songs such as War Child and Bosnia actually detract from the message O’Riordan is apparently trying to convey. What is worse, the lyrics actually become meaningless at times. Many of these songs also go on for too long, with several being concluded with extended periods of annoying musical cacophony. Overemphasis on presentation results in far too little emphasis on the music itself, and this greatly weakens the impact of this album.Read more ›

First of all, if you already like the Cranberries, you will love this album! It is the best (in my humble opinion) next to No Need to Argue. Dolores, Mike, Noel, and Feargal work together wonderfully in their music-- there's always such harmony with voice... guitar... drums... crazy Italian-sounding instruments in the background... in all of their songs, to evoke whatever feeling to you, whatever thought the music is trying to make. Dolores O'Riordan has the most talented voice of all the female vocalists I've ever heard, and she displays it beautifully in this album especially. You can hear her soft soprano on numbers such as "Joe", the harsh and forceful voice on "Bosnia" and everything in between. If one of her many tones happens to become obnoxious to you after a while, if you switch to the next track, it's liable to take a completely different tone. Same with the instruments and the lyrics and everything, without every switching away from the essence of their album, To the Faithful Departed. This album is beautiful, simply amazing-- political, reminiscing... love, war, John Lennon... no Cranberries fan should ever have to miss out on this!

I carefully read reviews before I make a decision about whether to buy a CD or not...This time that was a mistake. Most of the reviews I read were putting down this album, stating it was their worst collection. Obviously I disagree with that remark.
Yes, some of the desperate political messages can get annoying, but if that is the worst thing about this album, that's not saying much. There are always going to be those few songs that you don't listen to as much, but in this case it isn't because they're bad, its just because you fall in love with the other ones.
'The Rebels' has got to be the best track on this album. Her loud, powerful voice just blows you away, plus the melody is great. 'Yellow skies' is brilliant. It's one of those songs that you just have to sing along with. 'Hollywood' and 'Salvation' really gives you a reminder of how hard they can rock, so if you like that style definately listen to those.
All in all, EVERY song is worth listening to. Even the intermission is beautiful. Ultimately, I read too much negative information about this album, costing me time that I could have used enjoying it's unique style.

Two years after the explosively successful 'No Need To Argue', Irish sweethearts The Cranberries released 'To The Faithful Departed' True to its title, the album pays tribute to casualities of war, dead singers, and just about anybody dear to somebody who had departed. This takes up the theme of most of the album: sad, emotional, and bittersweet. 'I Just Shot John Lennon' takes its title straight out of the mouth of the person who said it right after killing former Beatle Lennon, Mark Chapman. This track, like many others, is a dark and haunting song but moves by at a quick pace ending with the sound of gun shots. Yet on the other side, we get 'Hollywood', a Zombie-ish tune, turning Hollywood into a character in a gothic tale. 'Salvation' presents the dangers and ugliness of drug abuse. The highlight on 'To The Faithful Departed' has got to be 'When You're Gone' which is the soundtrack of the album's theme. The song can be related to just about anybody. And when Dolores croons the line '...but i miss you when you're gone...that is what I do...yeah yeah yea', it somehow makes up for most of the missing gaps and dullness of some of the other tracks on the album. Yet out of all the misery the album has to offer, we get one feel-good treat 'Free To Decide', a very good but typical Cranberries tune.
Somehow most of the tracks here are mostly forgotten. Unlike 'No Need To Argue' which is a compilation of memorable tracks, 'To The Faithful Departed' is at best a mediocre offering with outstanding tracks; When You're Gone, Free To Decide, Salvation, songs that shouldn't be missed out on a greatest hits compilation.
Good
C+
