Product Description

Amazon.ca

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee is a bit of an anomaly. Happiness, the music industry truism goes, doesn't lead to good songs--but the Cranberries' new sense of contentment, as parents and as seasoned musicians, has resulted in their best album yet. Gone is the slight tendency towards turgid rock fare, or the sense (as with 1999's Bury the Hatchet) of going through the motions. This offering is strictly focused and emotionally direct, with all 13 songs welded to Stephen (Smiths, Blur) Street's crystal clear pop production. There's a new honesty to the songwriting, too. "I, at 24, was insecure / Would do whatever it takes," sings Dolores O'Riordan in the title track, a passionate song about how motherhood changed her life. Moving from hard-edged rock ("Do You Know") to the quietly reflective ("Chocolate Brown"), the Cranberries prove they're still major contenders. --Lucy O'Brien

5.0 out of 5 stars Craaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnberries! Sept. 29 2010
By Emilie
Format:Audio CD
Même si Dolores O'Riordan prétend qu'après le troisième album du groupe c'était du n'importe quoi... et bien j'ai apprécié l'écoute de ce disque. La musique est excellente et plusieurs chasons sont accrocheuses. La conception visuelle est elle aussi attirante et assez recherché, sans trop de flafla. Je crois que quand l'on aime Cranberries on fait fi de ce que la chanteuse prétend, il reste qu'elle l'a fait et qu'il reste un bon album.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Honest and Realistic Opinion Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Cranberries fan since they began and every album they put out I've listened to over and over again until I knew all the words, then listened to them a million more times. I can't do that with this album. I've tried, believe me. But it just isn't as catchy as all of their other ones. So basically I agree with a little bit of everyone on this. It isn't as good as their earlier stuff. But by no means is it bad, either. If you are a Cranberries fan I would definitely recommend getting it because it is a must have for your collection. You'll probably really like quite a few songs on it. But none of them will be your favorite Cranberries song. I will continue to listen to the album occasionally for something different, but I don't think it's going to grow on me as one of the best Cranberries albums of all time. I have faith that their future albums will be better though, so I'm not writing them off just yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars The controversy that I ' ve found about the album Aug. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
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 !.

I really can't take anything away from this band. This is got to be one of the tightest bands in rock right now. The guitar work is so clear and piercing to the ears. It sometimes comes across like a keyboard sound the guitarist is so clever. I don't know what tactics this guys uses or what his inspiraton is, but I love it. He often comes across to me like a Prince pupil or something. I mean the clarity of the riffs and the effects are beautiful! This band has always had some tight grooves and bumpin' beats. this album isn't the best I'll admit. But somewhat I am abit easier on this project because of the few jewel's on there. "Never Grow Old" is just simply a masterpiece! I don't care about the simple lyrics the arrangement and the guitar work is just simply gorgeous! I have never heard a rock artist convey such a beautiful sound like that since "Swandives -"Nutopian Days" and Mazzy Star's- "Fade into you!" "Never grow Old" could go on a compilation with some of my Trip Hop songs I love so much. "Analyse" is a transgression from there earlier material more electronic with a haunting piano riff (more Trip Hop Sounding). "Wake up and Smell the Coffee" is experimental at the beginning and comes in with a hard ..A*$ rocking groove! These guys are still capable of anything I believe. Everyone makes a not so great album sooner or later. At least it took them 4 lps later to do it. Some people fall off on number 2 or 3, ya know? But at least these guys still have the soul and the tight grooves. I just think this band took a break and said lets just cruise this time. If you asked my opinion, I think these guys have been listening to alot of european Trip Hop electronica. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Simply not good
Let me start by saying that I have nothing but respect for the great talent that is the Cranberries. They probably have the best lead singer in modern rock/pop music. Read more

I have nothing against the optimism that O'Riordon constantly displays, in this album, and in Bury The Hatchet. Read more

Many critics accuse the band of having plain lyrics and melodies into their songs...they're totally wrong! Read more
