Building off the success of their debut EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING IT, SO WHY CAN'T WE?, the Cranberries' second album NO NEED TO ARGUE offers more of the Cranberries' brand of lavish pop. Chock full of the haunting atmospheric vocals that propelled the Irish quartet into international stardom, NO NEED TO ARGUE continues the Cranberries' tradition of moving orchestral pop.
Dolores O'Riordan's delicate acoustic arrangements, ethereal lyrics and unique phrasing find the Cranberries' sound akin to contemporary shoegazers like The Cranes or Frente!. It's O'Riordan's dedication to portraying life in war-torn Ireland, though, that sets her apart from her contemporaries.
In the gripping "Ode To My Family," O'Riordan repeatedly asks, "does anyone care?" and the effect is devastating. "Ode To My Family" becomes a snapshot of children playing in the Belfast rubble, and NO NEED TO ARGUE is the audio accompaniment.
