Biography by John Bush

A photogenic family band comprising three sisters and one brother, the Corrs -- vocalist Andrea, drummer Caroline, violinist Sharon and guitarist/keyboard player Jim -- blend the music of their Irish background with contemporary pop/rock elements. The quartet formed in 1991 and enjoyed regional popularity in Ireland until 1994, when the American ambassador to the ... Read more in Amazon's The Corrs Store

Product Description


Four times platinum in their homeland, Forgiven, Not Forgotten, the debut from Ireland's cosy, family four-piece, took lilting Celtic folk away from the craggy old men in cardigans and gave it a glamorous, MTV make-over. All very nicely air-brushed, it's perfect Top Of The Pops fare, even spawning the hit single "Runaway"--a song which, when given the Top 40 sheen by producers Tin Tin Out, provided a staple diet for commercial radio programmers for the best part of six months. Forgiven, Not Forgotten is the first word in fiddles, jigs and whistles--but for young people, you understand. There are no rough edges on the likes of "Someday" or "The Right Time". Still, some elegant traditional instrumentals make a diverting change from the bland, cultureless pop-lite of endless boy-band clones. --Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight Pop/Rock with a hint of Oirish 18 Jan 2005
By not_a_real_folkie VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Unusually for me, I was in on The Corrs from the very beginning. Oh yes. What a claim to fame, eh? Hearing their single "Love to Love You" played on the local wireless station in 1995 sent me sprinting down to the local gramophone record emporium as fast as my penny-farthing would carry me. Clutching the fragile 78 to my bosom, I pedalled home furiously and, as the needle touched the shellac, was rewarded with one of the most consistent pop/rock albums ever to grace my horn.
There are some excellent songs here - the title track, the aforementioned "Love to Love You", "Closer", "T*ss The Feathers" are all punchy, solid and do what they say on the tin. Sometimes the jaunty oirish fiddle does grate a little when it sashays in on a perfectly innocent pop song that was managing quite well without it. A couple of other songs sound great at first listen, but are subsequently revealed to be half-formed or (like "Secret Life") push the saccharine pop button just a little too hard.
However, minor complaints. This is better than the multi-mega-billion-selling "Talk on Corners".

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic debut album 12 Aug 2003
By Darren Simons TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every track on this album is great! 23 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the second album by The Corrs that I heard, after Talk On Corners, and I think that is easily as good as their second album.
I don't know what other people think, but I love all of the instrumental pieces in between the brilliant songs. They are something that I think you can listen to without really having to listen properly, probably because they have no lyrics. My favourite instrumental track has gotta be The Minstrel Boy, closely followed by the Carraroe Jig.
Out of all the vocal tracks, it's difficult to decide on a firm favourite, but it would probably be either Closer, The Right Time or Runaway. But that doesn't mean that the others are not good; in fact, there is not one bad song on the album. Andrea's voice is just brilliant, as are the others', and Sharon's violin playing is great in the tracks in which she plays. The group as a whole sound really good together; The Corrs are definitely one of my favourite bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars To the rock side of the corrs 13 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I got this album years and years ago and still play it to this day because it is such a great album. It is the rockier side of the Corrs that you don't see on any of their other albums.

It is a great rock/pop/celtic album with many great songs on it, in fact all the songs on this album are fantastic and well worth a listen. I am sure if you like any of the other Corr's albums then you are bound to like their first album.

It is a true master piece and an album every fan should own and if you are not a fan of the Corrs then you might change your mind when you hear this.

With this, their debut album, the Corrs struck gold with their blend of traditional Irish folk sound and pop sensibilities. With traditional jigs mixed with original material that works as either a folk sound or as a pop song, this is an eminently listenable album. The group have a great sound, and with some stunning lead vocals soaring above their very Celtic backing it's a bit of an attention grabber. It will perhaps be a bit to folky for the pop fans and a bit too poppy for the traditional folkies, later albums from the group have leant far more into one camp or the other in order to find a greater mass appeal. But for me this remains a perfect blend and one of their best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 11 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic album. I only got it yesterday, but I was very impresssed. I don't thing there is a bad song on it. The mixture of songs is impressive.
There are some slow love songs such as runaway, and love to love you, some traditional or traditionally styled instrumentals. There are also enough uptempo songs in there such as Someday. Their is an influence of traditional Irish Music in some of their songs, which adds a lot to the music.
I don't know if this is better than Talk on Corners, but I think this is a bit better, although I haven't listen to this much. This seems to be more immediately appealling.
Basically fans of The Corrs shouldn't hesistate the get this, and others might be convinced.
