The story of this album’s genesis is both a sad and beautiful one. Sad because it is the band’s 8th and final album (in their initial line-up at least), but beautiful because we get the pleasure of hearing the voice of Dolores O'Riordan once more, who died suddenly on 15th January 2018. It’s thanks to demos recorded a few weeks before her passing that this musical resurrection has been possible: Noel Hogan, The Cranberries’ guitarist, had started working on the tracks in May 2017 while on tour, before recording eleven demos with the singer a few months later. It’s with the support of the O’Riordan family that the bandmembers came back together once more to complete the songs.


Strangely, the titles and lyrics are often about loss and endings in these songs that pack significant emotional impact, not only because of the tragedy that surrounds them, but also because the melodies and arrangements are often intrinsically melancholic. The strings that surround the finale of a piece like Lost, or the litanic piano of Catch Me If You Can, only reinforce the chills that flow through the listener when listening to In the End. But as they have often demonstrated over the past three decades, this Irish band never loses sight of a certain hope and energy; the lyrical melodies of Got It (with its overwhelming bass), and Summer Song are here to prove it. The ballads Illusion and In the End have a kind of twilight quality, but of the softest and most benevolent sunset there is. With this album recorded in London by producer Stephen Street (having already been at the helm of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? in 1993 and No Need to Argue in 1994), The Cranberries bow out with elegance and modesty. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
