AllMusic Review by

The Cranberries' entry into Universal's Colour Collection series features 16 cuts that span the Irish alternative rock outfit's entire career. While that sounds good in theory, the compilation is missing too many key ingredients to be called anything other than a sampler. The absence of bona fide hits like "Linger" and "Zombie" casts a long shadow over the collection, and with so many decent Cranberries overviews available, like 2002's Stars: The Best of 1992-2002 and 2008's Gold, it makes for a hard recommendation.
