This box set sees the Cranberries re-releasing their first four albums - Everbody else is doing it so why can't we?, No Need to Argue, To the Faithful Departed and Bury the Hatchet in celebration of their 10th anniversary - not bad for a band whose members are all 30 or younger. With new art work and 21 bonus tracks, it is a real must for any Cranberries fan. The first two albums are classics, featuring timeless songs such as Linger, Dreams, Zombie and Ode to my Family. The third album is, however, a slight let down by any standards, but tracks such as When You're Gone and The Rebels save what is a relatively patchy album. The fourth album marks a vibrant return to form with a real mix of tunes such as Promises, Animanl Instinct and Just my Imagination. With thier 5th album released in 2001 and a greatest hits package on the way shortly, this is a great opportunity to gain an insight into what has been an excellent but unpredictable career.

This box is certainly necessary for anyone who's ever been a Cranberries fan - due to the high price of the individually-released "sessions" albums, and the high quality of the rarities, which often surpass much of the original-album material.
But newcomers should be warned - this the story of a band that has never fulfilled its promise, and has become more worryingly erratic as the years go by. Early live performances suggested a band - and especially a singer - of extraordinary potential. But any thoughts that they might develop into the next Cocteau Twins or next Sugarcubes were to be sadly dashed.
"Everybody Else..." has plenty of thrilling moments - mainly the Johnny Marr-esque guitar lines of Noel Hogan, and Dolores O'Riordan's vocal trills and fills in `I Still Do', `Dreams' and `Put Me Down'. But for anyone who remembers their early live performances, it's a disappointment: smoothed-out for radio, with the vocals losing the idiosyncracies and rough edges that had provided much of their appeal. (The live renditions of these songs on their first video are far better). Nevertheless, it's their finest hour, towering over their subsequent work.
On "No Need to Argue" the band started to repeat itself with inferior results, and even highlights such as "Ode to My Family", "Can't Be With You" and "Everything I Said" fall into this trap. The simplistic/twee/nonsenical lyrics, which were so easily overlooked on the first album, became annoying here. Only a few tracks could be seen as progressions from the first album: "Zombie" (which needs no introduction); "Disappointment" -which may just be the greatest album track of their career; the mini-epic "Daffodil Lament" (another candidate for the greatest-album-track award), and the terrific b-side "So Cold In Ireland".

A Highly Recommended Treasure! 30 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Finally, fans of The Cranberries have the opportunity to obtain the COMPLETE CATALOG of this excellent band's earliest recordings. This four-disc set includes The Cranberries' first four albums (before 2001's "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee") in "complete sessions" form, including new packaging, and more importantly, 21 bonus tracks!
On the debut album, EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING IT, SO WHY CAN'T WE, bonus tracks are: "Reason," "Them," "What You Were," "Liar," "Pretty (Remix)," and "How (Remix)." All of these tracks are difficult to find anywhere else, as are most of the rest of the bonus tracks.
The second disc, NO NEED TO ARGUE, treats us to the rarities of "Away," "I Don't Need," "Close to You (from the IF I WERE A CARPENTER tribute)," the very rare "So Cold in Ireland," and a remix of the hit, "Zombie."
On TO THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED, bonus tracks are: "Cordell," "The Picture I View," "Ave Maria (with Pavarotti)," The amazing cover of "Go Your Own Way," from LEGACY, the Fleetwood Mac tribute, and the heart-pounding "God Be With You," from the soundtrack to the Harrison Ford/Brad Pitt movie, THE DEVIL'S OWN.
Finally, BURY THE HATCHET provides us with the b-sides formerly available on BURY THE HATCHET: THE COMPLETE SESSIONS, but not included on the original North American recording. These are: "Baby Blues," "Sweetest Thing (not to be confused with the song by U2)," "Woman Without Pride," "Such a Shame," and "Paparazzi on Mopeds (in honor of the late Princess Diana)."
Whether you're a new fan of The Cranberries or an old follower, this collection is a great opportunity to get EVERYTHING they've recorded, without having to buy all the tribute albums and soundtracks. Don't forget it includes all the hits, too, such as "Dreams," "Linger," "Salvation," "Ode to My Family," "Zombie," etc. This is a great way to hear a band grow!

A must for any Dolores O'Riordan & Cranberries Fan 26 May 2002
By Vinny Carpenter - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Cranberries re-released their first four studio albums as a complete session boxed set called The Treasure Box. This album was released in North America on May 14th to coincide with the start of the 'Wake Up and Smell the Coffee' North American Tour. This collection includes Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Cant We? (1991-93), No Need to Argue (1994-95), To the Faithful Departed (1996-97) and finally Bury the Hatchet (1998-99).
This collection is more than just the last 4 albums. This collection includes all the albums remastered along with a lot of rare and b-sides that were not available before. Each of CD includes 5 bonus tracks not released before along with some interesting remixes. If you're a fan of the band and love Dolores O'Riordan, you will want to get this collection. Do the extra 20 tracks make this package worth it? The answer for me was a resounding YES. I have the 4 original CD's, but I still bought the package as I love the band, but your mileage may vary. The band does plan on selling this collection of CD's individually later in the year and so you may want to wait for that, but if you are a fan and don't have any of their CD's - get this collections now
Interesting to note on The Cranberries website - We must mention that as soon as the box set is released, it will no longer be possible to purchase any of the first four albums in their original formats, for the time being. The intention of the box set was mainly, to give Cranberries fans an opportunity to acquire the full catalog of Cranberries work to date, including some rarities and b-sides that could only be found on singles or other formats which are no longer available!

Simply the best 22 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I already had all of the Cranberries CD's before I bought this, but I still think that it was well worth my investment. There are a TON of songs and all of them are excellent. Like the title says, the Cranberries are simply the best band out there in my (if somewhat un-objective) opinion.

Must Have 25 Oct. 2003
By Dustin Weida - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Cranberries Treasure Box is amazing! The box design is cute and charming. Even if you are a fanberrie and own all the c.d.s already you still need this to complete your collection. Every c.d. is remade and includes extra tracks from when that particular c.d. came out so that means you will get every c.d. again but with extra (hard to find) tracks. There are 21 total extras in the whole set. And they are all great, My favorite extra track is "So Cold In Ireland" There is also I really neat song it is a preformance by:Doloras and Pavarotti called Ave Maria. This is one of the coolest things I spent my money on worth ever cent!

Every single Cd is marvellous. If you love Cranberries, you should purchase such a magnificent item.
This is people's chance to listen to Cranberries B-Sides, and be aware of how wonderful these songs are. I also love Dolores O'Riordan voice.
If you have the opportunity and the means to buy it, do not waste your time... You will be really amazed with this product.
In simple words, 'I love my treasure box'...
