  2. Surprising. Zombie was such a hit that it brought too many people to The Cranberries for wrong reasons. I'm not a fan but their previous albums were ok and Dolores seems to be a nice person. They could have been The Sundays but are not that talented. Their last album entered the world wide chart selling 43,000 copies in its first week, far far behind what they were seloing in the 90's. They play some festivals during their tour and some where the boys play too.

  3. One of their songs "Animal Instinct" has a guitar tone that has always reminded me of the Cure, so that's nice of them to cover IBD and perhaps finally acknowledge in a roundabout way that The Cure were an influence on them.

  10. WHY did they do this? What was the logic/thought process?

  11. I like it musically, very nice drum work, tight cymbal action...Dolores seems nervous; She performs the song TOO faithfully without giving it a personal touch. She's been out of the business for a while, I think. She's a mom, too. Be nice to moms who are still taking the show on the road! Take it easy on her.

    The Cranberries HAVE openly acknowledged their Cure influences in the past. Like Pearl Jam, they are much, much better in the studio. The Cure, of late, are much better LIVE than in the studio. There's something to be said for both...

  12. The Cure are fantastic in studio, honey, and out of this world lon stage. I don''t want to come back to previous debates about fans always complaining about this or that because it's just fedding up at the end but the level they reached musically and emotionally... I have no words to express it the way I'd like to. And Robert seems so happy, happier than ever. We're lucky, guys, and music world Is on its knees because The Cure are untouchable. I'm so glad about that.

  15. The Cranberies cover was pretty straight forward. It was pretty good. And if you like the Cranberries too, I'm sure it was well received. I am a huge Cure fan, i have everything ever released commercially, as well as rare things live The Coca Cola promo from 96, and a BBC transcription cd from 97, so I love them. My favorite band of all time. But I have to say someting about the comment: "the music world is on its knees because The Cure are untouchable". Get real. Cure fans may be on their knees, but the music world,I think not.

  17. Ugh. She doesn't seem to know the song enough. Started at the wrong time, can't remember the lyrics... and her voice sounds like these voice recognition devices.

  18. You can't really complain about Dolores getting the words wrong. I've seen our treasured Mr Smith cock it up more times than I've seen him get it right!

  19. Yes..he can fuck up all he wants...his lyrics..3/10 for karaoke though..i'll give her that :)

  20. Unknown, I wasn't talking as a silly Cure fan. And it was an image trying to underline the fact that no other band has such an impact on nowadays artists. The Cure are everywhere, open your eyes.

  21. My wife got me into the Cranberries, and...they're capable of SO much better. The song was out of her register, so she didn't sound right singing it...and the keyboards should have been played by their jangly guitars to give it more of a personal touch. Judging by the fact that she needed a lyric sheet, it's obvious the band didn't spend long on this tune at all, and I doubt they were happy with it. Curious to know who asked them to cover the tune, and why...it really doesn't seem like it was their idea at all.
