Roses - Rolling Stone
Home Music Album Reviews


The Cranberries' fusion of the Smiths and Sinéad O'Connor was weirdly fetching when it drifted out of Ireland in the early 1990s, but the band grew bombastic as sales skyrocketed. So it's a relief that the group's comeback LP brims with Celt-tinged dream pop, as Dolores O'Riordan's broad singing melts into cardigan-cozy jangle. There are lyrical uh-oh moments ("Schizophrenic Playboy"), but Roses reminds us that note-hammering Brits from Adele to Florence owe Dolly a small debt.
