Dolores O’Riordan - Are You Listening?

I listened leak version of Dolores O’Riordan's "Are You Listening?", and it sounds good but not great. I appreciated her effort in trying to make louder guitar oriented songs, and she has a very beautiful and special voice in which she completes her rock passion once again. Of course this won't be a mastering record, it sounds commercial at times. But we love Dolores and her commercial songs are beautiful too. It's relaxing to listen Dolores again despite many verse-chorus- verse-chorus sections. Electric guitar on song "In The Garden" heavily cries, i don't like it because of Evanescence do their music in that way too, where a new genre comes to mind, degenerated goth rock?. However, this isn't one style album, there are some great emotional pieces such as: "Apple Of My Eye", "Black Widow", dreamy "Ecstasy", and a very beautiful "Accept Things". If you consider all those terrible and untalented new musicians, you look for old stars, really you look for them. I don't have any criticism to her singer performance, it provides an almost perfect effect on you.

Taking her time after the demise of The Cranberries (who sold 40 million records worldwide), Dolores O’Riordan retreated to real life with her husband. She had three children and wrote over 30 songs. She never rushed. And when she was ready, she whittled those 30 songs down to the 12 tracks that make up Are You Listening? Co-produced by Youth, Dan Broadbeck and Rich Chycki, Are You Listening? is a good debut from an artist who really has nothing to prove but everything to share. Dolores O’Riordan’s first solo effort, Are You Listening? out on May 15, 2007. Here is the Mp3 of her first single:
