The work of her band, The Cranberries
Dolores O'Riordan's solo work seems an outgrowth of her early work with The Cranberries, as though she had skipped their later work and moved on from there.

Formerly of The Cranberries, Dolores O'Riordan's first outing as a solo artist is strongly reminiscent of her work with her band. The songs are very much in the pop mode. Some are particularly hooky for me, like "In The Garden" and "Human Spirit; most are somewhat more familiar-sounding. I would say overall that this is well worth getting for those who enjoy the mainstream of pop/rock, and certainly any The Cranberries fan will love this. Dolores O'Riordan's vocals are, as always, interesting and impassioned. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Likable mainstream pop/rock. Nothing special, but nothing terrible. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Dolores O'Riordan sings on three tracks on the 1996 charity album Pavarotti&Friends: Together for the Children of Bosnia. She recorded "Centipede Sisters" for the 2008 compilation Roll Play.
