On the heels of their smash debut, the brilliantly titled Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, and the even more popular follow-up, No Need to Argue, the Cranberries fell victim to the same bad instincts as a thousand ascendant pop stars before them--they started taking themselves way too seriously. The dreary, self-important To the Faithful Departed was the result, and fans that had thrilled to the gossamer melodies of "Linger" and "Dreams" or the powerful crunch of "Zombie" abandoned the group in droves. They might want to reconsider. Bury the Hatchet is a welcome return to form that focuses on sweeping melodies and soaring vocals while leaving the grand pronouncements to those more suited to making them--Zack de la Rocha, say, or, at the very least, Bono. Bury the Hatchet is brimming with gorgeous tunes such as "Animal Instinct," "Saving Grace," "You and Me," and the delicate "Shattered." "Promises" and "Delilah," meanwhile, are feisty rockers, showing off Dolores O'Riordan's keening voice and confirming the band's ability to play to the back rows. --Daniel Durchholz

"I absolutely love the Cranberries! This is the album that my friend played for me, and i was hooked! This album combines hard rock tunes, soft rock, and a completely incredible slow song that blew me away!( Dying in the Sun.) If you are lookinf for an album worth your money,Bury The Hatchet can satisfy everyone."

"In 1999 The Cranberries reunited after three years off the road to release this album, Bury the Hatchet. They had experienced much trauma in the spotlight and needed time to rethink their careers. A fresh and new sound came out of the recordings for Bury the Hatchet and some of their greatest songs' lay on this album.
As always the Crans switch up their style with some songs that are simply brand new to the ear. Lead singer Dolores O'Riordan tests her vocals out on the powerful and angry "Delilah", one of the lead tracks. Her voice sounds quite different on this track than it ever had before. "Copycat" is another enjoyable track, it might be repitive for some but it really does describe the music scene of the present. This song also is a very different sound for the Crans. But believe me they still hold onto their classic sound on songs like "What's On My Mind" and "Saving Grace".
The slower songs as well as the up-tempo ones really give this album a brand new feel. The only thing I find wrong with it is that this amazon.com version does not include "Sorry Son" which is a breezy track that was included on other versions in the U.S."

"I love this cd. "Animal Instict" "Promises" "Just My Imagination" "You and Me" "Desperate Andy" "What's on my mind" are amazing tracks...but more than rocks ,sounds like pop.
That's no a problem to me, but anyway i hate some tracks as "Delilah" "Fee Fo fi" " Saving Grace"...They did a great job with this album. Buy it."
