Following up a remarkable debut album can pose quite a problem for a musical artist or group, but the Cranberries shrugged off any hint of a sophomore slump and really outdid themselves with this album. It doesn’t have quite the appeal and ethereal magic of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, but the complexity and maturity of No Need To Argue is really quite remarkable. Rather than trying to repackage the appeal of their first effort, the Cranberries greatly extended their musical tendrils into the solid ground of serious, socially conscious, heart-stirring lyrics. This album doesn’t have the instantaneous listenability of what came before, but that is largely due to the fact that this album is a much more personal, revealing statement on the part of singer and songwriter Dolores O’Riordan. We see a richer, somewhat darker side of the Cranberries in these thirteen songs. Leading the charge is Zombie. I for one love this song; some might say its atypically heavy, rocking delivery doesn’t fit the Cranberries’ style or O’Riordan’s voice, but I say the song merely goes to show the versatility of the band. This was not the type of music expected from this group at the time, and that makes it an eye-opening triumph in my opinion. Ridiculous Thoughts contains traces of the same hard-driving presentation of Zombie, but really and truly this album is one of plaintiff, melancholy songs. There is a touching sadness to tracks such as Ode To My Family, 21, Empty, Daffodil Lament, and Disappointment. Dreaming My Dreams is a quiet love song O’Riordan wrote and dedicated to her husband. Yeat’s Grave is a somber and respectful tribute to poet W.B. Yeats, while the title track is funereal in its presentation.Read more ›

here provided is a collection of such soothing and harmonic, yet at times intense and explosive tunes. zombie and cant be with you (perhaps the most well known songs from the album and indeed from cranberries) provide an upbeat rocky start to the album yet as the album progresses we are subject to, at times, some of the most soothing and tender voices. believe when i say that most impressive songs from the cranberries are the slower, less well known songs that you have to listen out for. personal favourite from the album is dreaming my dreams, yet when one listens many times to the whole albm one realises there is not a weak track on the entire album.
there is that irish folky feel all throughout, so, whether soothing or explosive, every tune is catchy and you will be humming and singing the melodies - guaranteed. by far the best on offer from the cranberries, and dare i say probably a better collection of songs than the 1992-2002 cranberries best of.

No Need To Argue is a masterpiece for any music collector or enthusiast of the genre. Their biggest hit single Zombie is the main attraction for many on this CD. Also released was Ode To My Family, I Can't Be With You and Ridiculous Thoughts. This was created when the Cranberries were low in confidence and growing up. Dolores' vocals were at their most angelic and powerful. The album is sometimes perceived as angst and close to morbid, but the lyrics are a reflection of the World not always being perfect and are very bare and honest.
No Need To Argue, the title track is simplistic and moving. Also contained on this special edition are the B-sides from the single releases. (They Long To Be) Close To You, is a cover version of the Carpenters classic, which is pulled off in true Cranberries style. So Cold In Ireland is like a continuation of Zombie, crying out against pain and fighting.
This is deffinatly a must for Cranberries fans and anyone who enjoyed Zombie, will love it.

I am fully convinced that after the current spite aimed at the cranberries for recent musical follies has subsided this album will be generally recognised as being one of the best of all time.
It is rare for an album to be so consistently strong all the way through but with the possible exception of the limp single "I can't be with you" that is the case here.
While the first album merged somewhat into a fusion of pleasent melody, No Need To Argue consists of powerful plaintive songs in their own right. Delores' lyrics so laughably weak on "To the Faithful Departed" are coherent and affecting - coming straight from the heart.
From the touching and beautiful Ode to my family through to the crushingly sad title track this is an album of immense proportions. Angry, bitter, melancholic but above all deeply upsetting, it is the perfect soundtrack to any failing or failed relationship.
Listen and weep....

Definitely the best album of the 1990's.The exquisite and angelic voice of Dolores O' Riordan had me listening again and again and again.
'Ode To My Family' has a universal beauty that most of us can relate to and 'The Icicle Melts' is another brilliant masterpiece that makes a hard hitting comment on another blight of modern society There is 'Yeats Grave' which is great peace of Irish poetry itself and 'Daffodil Lament' another exquisite and poetic masterpiece.I kept going back to Dolores beautiful voice singing 'I have decided to leave you forever...oh ,and the daffodils look lovely today'
