2016 US reissue on blue 180g LP- with hits: " Dreaming My Dreams" ,  “Zombie” &"Ode To My Family," "Yeats' Grave," "Ridiculous Thoughts" Originally issued on Island Records in 1994, No Need To Argue is the sophomore effort from Irish alt-rock act The Cranberries and follow-up to their breakout 1993 debut Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?
 
Propelled by the omnipresent hit song “Zombie” about the  1993 IRA bombings, the album was a worldwide smash and helped make the band one of the biggest of the '90s. Once again helmed by Everybody Else Is Doing It producer Stephen Street, No Need To Argue saw the band tackling more mature subject matter and employing a livelier rock sound than that of their mellow debut. Further highlights include "Ode To My Family," "Yeats' Grave," "Ridiculous Thoughts" and "Dreaming My Dreams."

Allmusic guide review:
With their surprise success behind them, the Cranberries went ahead and essentially created a sequel to Everybody Else is Doing It, So Why Can't We with only tiny variations, with mixed results. The fact that the album is essentially a redo of previously established stylistic ground isn't apparent in just the production, handled again by Stephen Street, or the overall sound, or even that one particularly fine song is called "Dreaming My Dreams." Everybody wasn't a laugh riot, to be sure, but No Need to Argue starts to see O'Riordan take a more commanding and self-conscious role that ended up not standing the band in good stead later. Lead single "Zombie" is the offender in this regard -- the heavy rock trudge isn't immediately suited for the band's strengths (notably, O'Riordan wrote this without Noel Hogan) -- while the subject matter (the continuing Northern Ireland tensions) ends up sounding trivialized. Opening cut "Ode to My Family" is actually one of the band's best, with a lovely string arrangement created by O'Riordan, her overdubbed vocals showing her distinct vocal tics. Where No Need succeeds best is when the Cranberries stick at what they know, resulting in a number of charmers like "Twenty One," the uilleann pipes-touched "Daffodil's Lament," which has an epic sweep that doesn't overbear like "Zombie," and the evocative "Disappointment."
