I've saw several people that dont like this album , but to me is the best album I had ever bought! I like almost all the songs of it .
As several people don't like it. I wrote this to prevent they prevent you to enjoy this beautiful album , it deserves you give it a try. when I bought it, I wasn't fun of 'the cranberries' and now I am. They were very good before and now they are better !.
Now I'll tell you a bit of the album .
The first time I knew about it was watching the tv of spain , there was Dolores ( cranberries'vocal ) performing the track "time is ticking out" a song which you cant not leave behind ,it is well done, as I really like it I got the cd . I found the first track "never grow old" very nice it scares a little cause its lyrics and music so beautiful you dont want a good time in your life to pass; and the song "This is the day" it is so striking it take you up from whatever it set you into other dimension , the video fits it perfectly .
Another beautiful track is "I really hope " that bring to my mind when you are so in love that you forget all the time the space ; is the most happy song of the album . The tracks "the concept" and "wake up and smells the coffee" are also very good ,in fact ,all are very good , the only one I dont like is 'analyse' which was promotional.
The style of this album is some gothic, some sad, some strange ,its songs are melodic ,has not compicated lyrics , has honest words.
It is a very good album believe me. If you take it you won't regret, There is only one serious risk with it and it is to became fun of cranberries !.
