Now on 180 gram vinyl! Here it is, The Cranberries' breakout sophomore album from 1994. This was easily their most successful studio album, and the one that put them on the map. Here the Irish band took a harder and moodier approach, utilizing much more distortion and heavier topics than their previous effort Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? to great success. Even if you don't listen to alternative rock, there's no way you won't recognize their biggest hit "Zombie," a track that is perma-burned in my mind from countless evenings of drunk karaoke (I mean who doesn't love singing that "Zombie, eh, eh, oh, oh" part?). Also includes "Ode To My Family," "I Can't Be With You," "Ridiculous Thoughts," and "Dreaming My Dreams." Features remastered sound for vinyl by Gary Hobish and comes housed in gatefold sleeve.
