    The yodelling irreversibly spoils what could be a truly great song. If you're looking for a hymn of such kind, in my humble opinion there's nothing better Manic Street Preachers' «If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next»

    It sounds like an avant-garde Scandinavian performing a yodelling concert at the bottom of the Baltic. Political or "Walking Dead", it's not passionate, it's shit.

    It's pretty incredible to me that Dolores' voice can be so soft and wistful in "Linger" and be so enraged and passionate in this one. Really speaks to her talent and range!

    This song is still so epic. I have always loved Dolores O’Riordan's voice. She is truly unique in the world of music.
