Music industry magazine Billboard has given a favorable review to “When We Were Young,” the new second single from Dolores O’Riordan’s Are You Listening? Here’s what they had to say:

When We Were Young
DOLORES O’RIORDAN
Producer(s): Dolores O’Riordan, Richard Chycki Genre: POP
Label: Sanctuary

The first solo single from Cranberries vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, “Ordinary Day,” was an elegant bow for her album “Are You Listening,” reminiscent of pop classic “Linger.” Enough of that, eh? Follow-up “When We Were Young” is a closer reminder of her “Zombie” signature, with vocal octave-jumping and a haughty gambol between electric guitars and percussion. Radio hesitated to react the first time around, but with the brassy approach of “Young,” O’Riordan has potential to charm adults who know her on a first-name basis. Active rock, as seldom as it indulges the ladies, would also do well to usher this talent back to active duty.”Chuck Taylor
