I would really like this album on Vinyl but, with such mixed reviews, mostly not positive I guess I'll wait till someone presses it correctly. Suggestions anyone? And how many times does Plain Recordings have to release No Need to Argue? Instead of releasing it in different colors, how about pressing right?

Of the debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We of this group in our country only 5000 copies were sold. However, this album was very successful worldwide. On this new cd, to which before the release had many question was, 13 pop songs, all of which were written by singer Dolores O'Riordan. In terms of both music and voice the group shows many similarities with Sinead O'Connor. The album received a good review in music magazine OOR.

I used to have the Mexico 1994 Cassette of this Album and I remember the song "Empty" was listed on the track list but it was not on the cassette, I dont have the item anymore and I do not see it on the list of versions.
