Amazing Must Have Album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/01/2009 16:50:37
This is and always has been my favourite album in my collection. It's a classic to be owned. The title track that this group have always been ronound for is Zombie, attacking the IRA and establishment in Ireland. Dolores has never been one to hold back on her lyrics and this album holds many gems. Ode to My Family is a beautiful track, almost a fairytale. I Can't Be With You a bouncy joy of forbidden love across the waves. Empty I think is my least favourite acoustic track from this album (excluding the bonus track remix) but is a popular song amoung many a fan. The Icicle Melts is a cry out written around the time of the Jamie Bulger kidnap and murder. Crying out for the Mother's pain at loosing a child in this terrible way. This album also features the fan's favourite added to their Greatest Hits album, Stars; 'Daffodil Lament' an epic amoung all songs.
If you liked Zombie, you will love this album. If you enjoyed Linger (from their debut; Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We) then this piece is a tougher grown up version of maturity leading on from Dolores' demure angelic vocals, to confident rock chick!
The volcals and music are distincyively Irsh, however they don't try to be. There is no twee Corrs like melodies and instruments, but the Irish influence from their roots is there in a different way. Lyrical influence and Dolores' accent that she never tries to hide or Americanise. I think Sinaed O'Conner fans would also enjoy this album if you enjoy her influences and honesty with her audience.
As for the bonus tracks, very rare collectors B-Sides thrown in is a great listen. Not so keen on the remix version, but still a lot hear for your money! Away and I Don't Need featured on the Zombie CDs. (They Long To Be) Close To You, a stripped down simplisitc acoustic version of The Carpenters classic is very sweet and So Cold In Ireland seems like another rip roaring belter following on from Zombie and similar to Daffodil Lament in production value.
