A new recording from "The Cranberries" !! I love this band and i was so happy whan i heard about this release.

-Actually is a cd containing some of the band's known songs in an alternative version(acoustic) , some people would say.

Yes this is true but we have also three new songs in this cd. And if they are good i think everyone will be satisfied. Are they? Let's find out!





As a previously mentioned in this cd we find 10 classic Cranberries' hits in an acoustic version ( i loved them once again. So many good memories, so many happy thoughts. ) and 3 new songs. 

So let's find out if the new are good :

-The Glory

Reminded me of the old Cranberries days. The music is good and the lyrics are typical Dolores' lyrics we all know and love ( and not those i read on Roses album and i was like "wtf she just said in the song???")

75/100

-Rupture

Another good song. I loved the piano in this. The weakest among the 3 new songs but still a good song. Close your eyes and enjoy it.

70/100 

-Why

In one word? A masterpiece! 

The best of the 3 new and i think that fits on the Cranberries' old great days just fine. 

Is like you hear a song for the past. Nostalgic, beautiful, perfect!

It makes you say "if you still can write songs like this then i want to hear full length Cranberries album and i want it now! "
That music, the lyrics, Dolores' angelic voice....If you haven't hear to it yet whqat are you waiting for!!! Go Go GO!!!

It was the albums' single promotion and i could not find a better song to choose for promotion. 

The music is great,the lyrics... It became one of my Cranberries' best songs ever! 

95/100

In conclusion : 

Nostalgia. After hearing to this album your mind flies to the past... to the good Cranberries moments...

A good recording and the 3 new songs are so good that you want more and more. 

After their album Roses(2012) i was dissapointed (only 4 songs out of 11 were good) but now? 

Now i'm so happy and i hope that The Cranberries will consider to record a new album!!
