music sharing: The Cranberries

Collapse )

In this post: The Cranberries. They're my longest-lived musical love; eleven years now I have loved their music (though I never got the chance to see them in concert). I generally prefer more complex lyrics, but the richness of the music and the way Dolores uses zir voice as an instrument (in wordless sound as well as lyrics) more than balances the simpler lyrics. I chose samples from five albums but this is just an overview, as there are very few of their songs that I don't sing along with and feel through-and-through. I'll add individual comments on each album.
