Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

CD REVIEW! The Cranberries - Roses
Irish rockers The Cranberries return with a brand new album in over a decade and The Beat is glad to report it is one of their best work to date. Roses was produced by the band's longtime friend and collaborator Stephen Street and harkens back to the freshness and originality of the band's first two albums, 1993's 'Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?' and the 1994 follow up, 'No Need To Argue'. . The songs on Roses come from a band with a renewed hunger and in every corner you'll find the extraordinary sound of Dolores O'Riordan's voice, the pivotal instrument which transformed the band from a group of young Irish hopefuls at the edge of the 80s into an MTV sensation and worldwide super group within just a few short years. Given all of the Cranberries’ hits and their achievements, this album stands as one of their high watermarks. Even after being away for so long, they’ve basically picked up right where they left off without any space and that’s almost impossible for any other band to do in this day and age. Roses will not disappoint hardcore Cranberries fans and might even pick up new fans along the way. Go check out the interview with the band talking about their new CD, HERE!
