”I know I felt like this before/Now I’m feeling it even more,” sang Dolores O’Riordan on the Cranberries’ hit, ”Dreams.” Exactly. The good buzz accrued by the Cranberries’ slow-building, double-platinum debut album (Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?), as well as their oft-mentioned Woodstock ’94 performance, has paid off: The Irish quartet’s sophomore disc, No Need to Argue, moves up to No. 9 in its second week — the young group’s first top 10 appearance (see story on page 87). Boyz II Men, on the other hand, keep gaining experience in the upper reaches of the chart; their latest album of new-jack love songs, II, regains the No. 1 slot from alterna-elders R.E.M.
