The second half of the '90s was difficult for the Cranberries, not just because of changing fashions, but because the group embraced both a social consciousness and a prog rock infatuation, crystallized by the Storm Thorgerson cover of Bury the Hatchet. Thorgerson has been retained for their fifth effort, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, but the group has hardly pursued the indulgent tendencies of their previous collaboration with him – instead, they've re-teamed with producer Stephen Street and come up with an album that's as reminiscent of their debut as anything they've done since. So, even if it's wrapped in new clothing, this is essentially a return to basics, and it's a welcome one, since it's melodic, stately, and somber – perhaps not with the post-Sundays grace of "Linger," but with a dogged sense of decorum that keeps not just the group's musical excesses in check, but also O'Riordan's political polemics (although she still sneaks in cringe-inducing lines like "Looks like we've screwed up the ozone layer/I wonder if the politicians care").

Smokey Robinson took back the production reins from George Tobin and reinstated his producing/arranging partnership with Sonny Burke for Touch The Sky. The two took a more rhythmic approach, with Burke contributing drums and synthesizers. R&B listeners responded, notably on the title track (#68 R&B) and "I've Made Love To You A Thousand Times" (#8 R&B), but Robinson was shut out of the Hot 100, and as a result Touch The Sky continued his slide in LP sales, peaking at only #50 on the Pop chart, although it hit #8 R&B.

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee is the fifth studio album by The Cranberries. Released on October 22, 2001, the album has sold 170,000 copies in the US as of April 2007. UK pressing of the Irish quartets fifth and final album from 2001 features three bonus tracks: In The Ghetto plus live versions of Dreams and Promises. Worldwide, the album sold 1,300,000 copies by 2002. Designer Storm Thorgerson, who also designed the cover of their previous album, "Bury the Hatchet", said: "The idea of red balls came from granules of coffee percolating the atmosphere, settling in your nose and waking you up. The version of the artwork featuring a man in bed on the beach is clearly indebted to another Thorgerson creation: Pink Floyd's A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

Break out the ouija board and extra-hold hair spray – because Stand Up and Shout puts you front row center to Ronnie James Dio's illustrious career. A mighty two-and-a-half-hour surge of molten metal, Stand Up and Shout begins with the classic rock/Stones-y blues-rock of Elf and makes a headlong voyage into his now infamous stints as lead vocalist of Black Sabbath and Rainbow before making a right-hand turn into one of metal's most successful solo careers…
