AllMusic Review by

Gold, a double-disc rendering of hits, singles, album cuts, and B-sides, provides Cranberries fans with a nice balance between 2002's single-disc Stars: The Best of 1992-2002 and the mammoth Treasure Box: The Complete Sessions, 1991-1999, the latter of which featured all of the popular Irish band's remastered albums stocked with 21 bonus tracks. The Cranberries called it quits in 2003, but they left an impressive string of radio gems -- like "Dreams," "Linger," "Zombie," and "Salvation" -- that successfully blended the Celtic-infused melodies of their homeland with the lush and accessible modern rock that grew out of the early-'90s alternative scene.
