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

""Bury the Hatchet", the fourth major Cranberries CD, is a unique look into their music. It demands several listenings, before it can be appreciated. The music is truly different, not only from other artists, but from previous Cranberries albums as well. It's not that The Cranberries have taken a musical 180, its just that their presentations have changed. Completely secure in their ablilties, they do not seek to fit an image, and this album proves it! Don't get me wrong though, this is a really good album. Power songs like "Promises" back against the beautiful "Shattered". The album is worth getting just to hear Dolores O'Riordan-Burton's incredible and beautiful voice! It sends chills running everywhere, and is completely her own. At first, you may not completely love it if you are not a die hard Cranberries fan...but be patient, the music is worth it!"
Cranberries are Better Than Ever

"Even though the early work of the cranberries is some of the best music ever seen by the pop scene, "Bury The Hatchet" prooves to be the best yet. Them album opens with the catchy "Animal Instinct", a song about a new mother's feeling for her baby son. Other tunes on BTH that will surely become some of your favorites are "You and Me" which sounds something like a lullabye with a beat, "Just My Imagination" is the band's latest single, and "Dying In The Sun" where the lead singer Miss Dolores O'Riordan-Burton finally shows off her vocal range. The cranberries rock the free world!"

"This album makes me proud that I stuck by the Cranberries when critics and so called 'fans' blasted the band after its previous album: To The Faithful Departed. Honestly, that album isn't their best album but you can't call it bad. Bury the Hatchet on the other hand is top quality.It reminds me of the much loved first album,which is my favourite. Just slighty not as high standard. Animal Instinct, Just My Imagination and My Saving Grace particularly refreshes my memory. If you like the first two albums. I urge you to buy this."
