    Before No Doubt & Garbage, we had these Irish rockers as the top co-ed alternative band of the '90s.

    They've had so many good singles, shame they split up later in the year. I think I'll pick: "Dreams"

    I voted "Linger," but my favourite is probably "Ridiculous Thoughts."

    My favourite album track is "No Need to Argue."

    While the group was generally lyrically embarassing, Linger is one of the most well written and moving breakup songs of that decade. FACT.

    Isn't Dolores O'Riordan supposed to be working on a solo record? I'm kinda interested in that.

    Promises but they were a solid singles band.

    I was prompted to vote on this by finally getting the final album today.

    It's kind of amazing how big they still are. They're getting 10 million streams a month on Spotify, which is much more than most of their 90s alt-rock contemporaries. It's not just Zombie either, even rubbish old #54 smash Animal Instinct is on like 32 million total streams.

    Anyway 2004 VoR was a LITTLE effusive up there, but it's still Linger for me, closely followed by Ode To My Family and Dreams.

    You’re rubbish! :oi:

    I think it was a rather big hit in continental Europe. It was the only song, together with Promises, that I’ve liked by them.

    Animal Instinct is a very good track, agreed.

    Suddenly something has happened to me
    While I was having my cup of tea
    Suddenly I was feeling depressed
    I was utterly and totally stressed
