The Cranberries

Maybe the sold-out Cranberries' show, following the group's sophomore album, "No Need to Argue," should have been billed as the Dolores O'Riordan show.

With:
Band: Dolores O'Riordan, Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, Feargal Lawlor.

Maybe the sold-out Cranberries’ show, following the group’s sophomore album, “No Need to Argue,” should have been billed as the Dolores O’Riordan show.

That way, the singer and her charisma would have been allowed to stand out, rather than battle her bandmates’ inability to equal her passion.

O’Riordan vacillates from charmingly innocent to spunky and fiery to soft and seductive. Her magnificent voice explores the full range of dynamics: from sultry croon to an explosive wail.

Musically, the Cranberries are pop ethereal, influenced by Irish/Celtic folk music, ostensibly where some of their melodies derive their origins. The simple arrangements and lilting melodies render them to mainly college and pop audiences despite the band’s attempt to be viewed otherwise.
