Like many people (well, blokes anyway) the first time I noticed the Corrs was seeing a video of them on VH-1 and suddenly waking up and paying attention. The video was Runaway, and the album was bought immediately.
A number of things immediately struck me about this album. Firstly, Andrea Corr's voice is quite fantastic - melodic and smooth, ideally suited to the music (her tin whistle playing's a bit good as well!). Secondly, the relatively unusual combination of violin, drums, guitar, tin whistle and vocals works brilliantly, and thirdly, having not listened to very much of this genre previously, I really enjoyed the traditional instrumentals especially Toss The Feathers.
There is a strong Irish theme throughout this album and for me it really makes this album stand out as something a bit special. Favourite tracks for me are probably Toss The Feathers, Someday, Runaway and Secret Life.
