Episode 31 is here! The guys finish up their review of No Need to Argue, the 1994 #1 album by The Cranberries! How will the second half of this album fare? Also, the guys give a tribute to John Regan!
No Need to Argue is the second studio album by Irish alternative rock band the Cranberries, released on 3 October 1994. It is the band’s best-selling album and has sold 17 million copies worldwide as of 2014. It contains the band’s most successful single, “Zombie”. The album’s mood is darker and harsher than that on Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? which was released a year before.
On 5 August 1995, Billboard stated that No Need to Argue was the largest seller of albums since its release, with 5.1 million copies sold in six months. On 10 March 1996, the Cranberries won a Juno Awards for Best-Selling Album. In 2009, No Need to Argue was ranked No. 90 on Billboard magazine: “300 Best-Selling Albums of All Time”. In July 2014, Guitar World placed No Need to Argue at No. 41 in their “Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994” list.
