Bury The Hatchet Reviews (1999)

Translated from Portuguese by Cranspektrum

Qualified, in the beginning of their career, like “existential band” for adopting in their music the philosophical precepts of Jean Paul Sartre, The Cranberries went keeping distance of the term for becoming one of the best groups of the 90’s. And two years away from the studios (due the pregnancy / maternity of the vocalist Dolores O’Riordan) didn’t take off the fire power of the group. In the new album, they keep mezzo gothic, mezzo guitars, besides to engender ballads of breaking the heart (like Saving Grace). Dolores keeps with impeccable vocal and the work of composition of the guitarist Noel Hogan work wonders like “Loud And Clear”, “Promises” and the beautiful and pungent “Just My Imagination”. Great album.

After to give time for the dust of the success to settle, and that the vocalist Dolores O’Riordan give birth to her first son, the irish band of great success after of U2 is back. The fourth album of Cranberries consolidate their career with the formula that carried them to the top in all globe: a simple rock with good doses of a pop most of the times irresistible, detaching the beauty and distinguished voice of Dolores. This time band dare to put a bit more of heaviness in some songs, like “Promises” and “Delilah”, but don’t hide their vocation for the sweetened arrangements of “Loud And Clear” and “Animal Instinct”. The ballads are present, all of them with emphasis also in interpretation of Dolores, like in “Saving Grace” and “Fee Fi Fo”. In general, “Bury The Hatchet” is a good album, ideal for hearing without liability.

New CD is still away to rise them to the musical Olympus

They release “Bury The Hatchet”, which is about lost loving and until them minor’s abuse.

The pop universe always have a sublime pretension: to conceive suddenly an happy reunion of songs that, not intending to change the world, not yet the neighborhood, become itself symbol of their time. Somewhat like the Bee Gees did in 1978 and Michael Jackson in 1986.

Unfortunately, “Bury The Hatchet” (Universal Music), the new Cranberries’ album, will not to put the band in this occasional pop’s Olympus. It’s right “Promises”, the first single and the most played song of the radios, will make echo during a good time because of the “eeeeeeeeeeees” and “ooooooooooos”, in Sinead O’Connor’s way.

“Bury The Hatchet” has an head-title. It means something like “cease the hostilities”. It shows “social preoccupation”, not much not to cloud the voice of little fairy of Dolores, neither so little that make the group to seem inevitably lunatic.

Succeed itself little keyboards well known and little guitars well sweetened, proper of who want “to stay in bed until Sunday”, like in one more ballad of the band, “Just My Imagination”. Militarizing against “false security sensations” and against friends who change unusually, with no reason, they are just boys whose existential dilemmas don’t fill even one diary with the cover pricked with pins.

Musically, everything seem a bit disunited from a original thing. And neither seem so very well disunited. The riff of “Desperate Andy” come of any studio’s rest of Passenger, by Iggy Pop, but original is very superior. “Fee Fi Fo” is one more shadow of Sinead O’Connor, speaking about the sexual abuse of minors.

But some unpretentious tracks till serve to warm the spirit. “Dying In The Sun”, the 13th song of the 14 of the album is one of this things. The juvenile little Dolores’ keyboard and her solar voice remain like one from that nice mornings of burning sun and inefficacious that is going to repeat on here.

Although The Cranberries started to produce a great and brilliant Rock / Pop, but then, that started to make a darker and harder kind of rock, which reflected the social and political problems from their country, Ireland. In “Bury The Hatchet”, The Cranberries reach the perfect mix between the pop deluxe style, and a darker vision, more disturbing. Almost in every song from the album, Dolores’s voice rides softly in the simple but charmer melodies, made by a great mix between acoustic and electric guitars. But in songs like “Promises”, the guitars are harder, and the atmosphere is darker, showing the deepest part of this Cranberries album. Anyway, it doesn’t matter the darkness expressed in the lyrics, the stimulating and optimistic strums and snaps of guitars, and the drums, get the album to have a nice ride. And the occasional shiver in Dolores’s voice is blinding enough to make you involve in this.

The change to a Rocker sound was not a big success, that’s the reason The Cranberries returned to their original sound. Like many groups that see how their career is fading out, the band decides to come back with an immaculate new album, made on the same idea from the first 2 albums. In this album there are not hard guitars explosions, in fact, they leave the rock songs, and Dolores decide to make album with “serious songs”. Every note and every song is thought for alternative adult listeners, and being genuine, The Cranberries never sounded so convinced like in this album, where they added folk sounds and a production simply brilliant. All this plan when they released the album, maybe also call calculation, it’s not a surprise, because this album is a new beginning for their career, and it’s the most solid album of the band as the final result. With that we don’t want to say that is the best, it doesn’t have those immediate singles from their first albums, but all the songs form a joint that we never have seen in the band.

They launch ‘ Bury the Hatchet ‘, in which she speaks of lost loves and of abuse of minors the universe pop always even has a pretension to subliminar: to suddenly conceive a happy meeting of songs that, not intending to change the world not even the neighborhood, if becomes symbol of its time. Something as the Bee Gees had made in 1978 and Michael Jackson in 1986. Unfortunately, Bury the Hatchet (Universal Music), the new record of the Cranberries, does not go to place the band in this 0ccasional Olimpo of pop. Is certain that Promises, first single and also touched music more in the radios, goes to make echo during a good time because of “?eeeeeeeeeees” and “?oooooooooos” of Dolores O’Riordan, in the style of Sinead O’Connor. Bury the Hatchet has a heading-head. It means something as “they cease the hostilities”. Sample “concern social”, much not to turvar the voice of fadinha of Dolores, nor so little that the group makes to inevitably seem mentally ill. They are succeeded more tecladinhos than known and guitarrinhas more than adocicadas, proper for who wants “to be in the bed until sunday”, as it says the letter of plus a ballad of the band, Just My Imagination. Militating against “false sensations of security” and against friends who move strangely, without reason some, they are only boys whose existenciais quandaries do not full at least a daily one with the layer stuck for pins. Musically, everything seems unglued half of some original thing. E nor seems so well unglued thus. Riff of Desperate Andy left some surplus of studio of Passenger, of Iggy Pop, but the original is very superior. Fee Fi Fo is plus a shade of Sinead O’Connor, speaking on sexual abuse of minors. But some unpretentious bands until they serve to esquentar the spirit. Dying in the Sun, 13.? song enters the 14 of the record, is one of these things. Tecladinho youthful of Dolores and its solar voice remains as one of these beautiful mornings of ardido and inefficacious sun that walk if repeating for here. (J.M.) [ 2008 ]

After the long time Dolores O’Riordan’s band took a year after have released their last album, no one seems to still remember them. The reason is that their last album “To The Faithful Departed”, accused the stress after the millionaire sales of “No Need To Argue”, with “Zombie” in the top. During the two years The Cranberries were out voluntarily from the musical scene, this has been two years with time for rumors (Dolores’s supposed anorexia), for weddings (the basses Mike Hogan and the drummer Fergal Lawler contracted wedding, not between them, between their respective wives), and time to have children (Dolores gave birth to a boy last year). “Bury the Hatchet” is the fourth album from the Irish guys. The 13 songs from their new job are not away from their pop with guitars and Celtic origins. But they don’t deep in the guitars rawness from “To the faithful Departed”, and they don’t return to the transparence of songs like “Dreams” or “Linger”, from their first album “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?”, and the first new album single “Promises” doesn’t have the power of “Zombie”. A return that has to stand the cruise of having sold 28 million copies years before.

“Bury The Hatchet” could recover something of the Irish sweetness that The Cranberries seems to have lost after their refreshing irruption in 1993 (“Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?”), their fans and the not so fans agree in the fact that the voice of Dolores O’Riordan and the other members arrangements are not enough to get something of character. Comparatively, the songs of their seventh album rest in a cared sound, with bagpipe, chords and, but like a pop album, it doesn’t work so good, because it is in need of that “melodic hook” of their old hits like “Dreams” and “Linger”, and it doesn’t count either with the enough distinction to emphasize it between so many offers with the same intention. It works like a settee for a band getting out from serious personals and professional problems, and in a possible way to better results.
