The Cranberries

Roses

Just as they were approaching superstardom in the mid-'90s, The Cranberries opted to experiment a bit, by switching producers and adopting a more muscular sound, while also getting heavy on the politics. They were ultimately chastised for it; while the bold but uneven To the Faithful Departed produced two or three hit singles and expensive-looking videos for MTV, it turned off fans who normally associated the group with the dreamy folk-pop that put them on the map. As a result, solid follow-up album Bury the Hatchet failed to capture the same American audiences, and after 2001's Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, the group decided to call it quits.
