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!
