Product Description

Just over one year after their last studio album, The Corrs are returning full circle with their latest album Home. As the title suggests, The Corrs are back to fond beginnings, defining a journey that began 15 years ago. It is a record that is held close to the band’s hearts, compiled through a songbook of the late Jean Corr, and brought to life by the band's urge to bring new interpretations to traditional Irish songs. Featuring the BBC Radio 2 Concert Orchestra and working with orchestral arranger Fiachra Trench and producer Mitchell Froom, who has worked with The Corrs on three previous albums, the band set out to create an eclectic mixture of songs and instrumental airs. The mixture of traditional and contemporary, is one that is truly celebrated throughout Home.

The Corrs were one of the first 'pop' bands that I encountered as a young teenager, and were THE thing to be listening to. I bought 'Talk on Corners' when I was 11, and, having forgotten them for a few years, I then bought their Greatest Hits. When I heard a few snippets of 'Home' a few weeks ago, I decided to give them another chance. Home is my favourite album by far; partly because I love folky, Irish music in general, and this album is primarily based on this.
The album is magical, enchanting and soothing, and also has a heartbreaking quality reminiscent of the Corr's older songs such as Runaway, Only When I Sleep and Dreams, though often with less prominent melodies. In my opinion, the best tracks are My Lagan Love, Spancill Hill and Peggy Gordan. Old Town is the only let down. It seems completely out of place; this is a pop song in the middle of a folk album, which spoils it somewhat.
All in all it's a wonderful album, which shows the Corrs doing what they do best.

Wow! What an album. Since buying it I haven't been able to stop playing it. This is how I remember the Corrs - and then some! If like me you prefer their earlier albums over the recent hit-or-miss over-produced commercial efforts then you will love this album and you are in for a real treat. Seriously, there isn't a bad track to be found on this beautifully produced album. From "My Lagan Love", the opening track, you just know that this is going to be something special. It is almost impossible to pick a favourite as they are all so well performed. Brilliant musicianship coupled with Andrea's hauntingly beautiful voice - what a combination. I love it! Welcome back!

I was so happy when I first heard this album! The Corrs did a terrific job with this recording! What an accomplishment! I only wish they'd made a two disc set! I've seen them in concert a few times and love their music but I always hope that they'll play more traditional music. In concerts here in Germany, it's been AMAZING to watch the Germans stamping and clapping and beaming with joy as they listen to the traditional Irish music the Corrs sometimes play - now they've answered our prayers and are singing traditional songs (and two in ***Irish***, too!! MANY thanks for that!!) as well as more modern ones - and both Sharon and Andrea sing (hurrah!) One song that took a while to grow on me is "Black is the Color," but that's because I so love Christy Moore's version of the song. Hearing this sung from a woman's point of view was new - but I like it!
Corrs - please keep singing the old songs and recording in Irish! Sinead O'Connor's Sean Nos Nua and Altan's albums are favorites of ours - thank you for also singing some of these great Irish songs. If you read this, would you please record Andrea and/or Sharon singing "Gleanntáin Ghlas' Ghaoth Dobhair"? Your instrumental version is GORGEOUS but you'd have a masterpiece if you would sing the words, too.

We love your older songs, of course, but you've done a fantastic job with this album! Please - keep those traditional songs coming!!
Go raibh míle maith agat!

Being Irish and a massive Corrs fan from the beginning, I was delighted to hear that they had decided to record some old Irish tunes and give them the unique Corrs treatment. I have this album since it was released in Ireland on Friday last and it hasn't left the cd player yet. I think this is a fin fine album and shows off their muscianship and versatality to the very best. I love all the songs on the album, especially, Heart like a wheel, Moorlough Shore, Spancil Hill, Lagan Love and all the rest of them. The only downfall is that they chose to include "Old Town", the old Phil Lynott song again on one of their albums and although it's a fine song,I think there are far better songs that they could have included like "Carrickfergus" I heard Jim Corr interviewed on RTE radio and he said that they had recorded between 50 and 60 songs for this album before choosing the eventual 12 tracks. I recommend this album highy and feel that any genuine lover of music played well will appreciate what the Corrs have achieved here.

Format: Audio CD
What a relief - after their last commerical pop band album, The Corrs appear to have taken stock and gone 'Home' to their roots, as evidenced by the fact that almost all the tracks are 'Traditional, arranged by The Corrs'.
After their early folky albums which had the delight of mixing it up with the pop world to successful effect, this feels rather like the opposite. A band which had become pop through and through, trying out folk music. If there is a complaint to be made it is that the production (including the use of the BBC Concert Orchestra) values are just too refined and pop music oriented to give the album the energy and pathos that folk music should do, and that the early Corrs album did.
The songs are mostly recognisable folk tunes, albeit with the Corrs twist on it. The only non folky tune was Old Town, still a respectable enough pop song that won't disappoint, but a litle out of place amongst the others. 'Dimming of the Day' is a highlight, letting the other vocalists a rare chance to make a difference - Andrea Corr does monopolise the sound a fair bit on this album.
All told, a successful return to form, a well sung and produced album of folks songs with pop production values, only mildly dimmed by a slightly too clean sound for the subject matter. Fans of the Corrs will not be disappointed - those looking for something different might well be.
