THE CORRS Talk On Corners - Special Edition (Limited 1998 UK 15-track CD including What Can I Do & So Young Remixes plus four sexy colour prints picture sleeve with custom stickered jewel case)
Formed in 1990, The Corrs are a multi-skilled Irish group comprising three sisters and a brother who each play a variety of modern and traditional instruments. Their second album, Talk On Corners, fuses pop, rock and Irish folk to produce an accessible musical mix. More melancholic but also more streetwise than their first album, three of the tracks on the album have been remixed by some of the most influential dance producers of the late 1990s. Their punchy, remixed cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" appeals equally to teenager clubbers and their parents. Combined with traditional instrumental track such as "Paddy McCarthy" and more dreamy vocal compositions such as "Only When I Sleep" and "Hopelessly Addicted", this album truly provides something for everyone. --John Galilee
Top Customer Reviews
The album presents us with fifteen superbly written tracks that display stunning vocals from Andrea Corr and superb music from the rest of the band. What Can I Do? is a simple, guitar-backed piece of brilliance, So Young essentially keeps the album upbeat and the Fleetwood Mac cover Dreams proves that the likenesses made between the two bands have not been made in vain. Runaway delivers a melody that will be instantly recognisable for years to come and Queen Of Hollywood is beautifully crafted ballad that sums up all of The Corrs talents.
Andrea Corr sings with lyrics so soothing that they could calm a serial killer on a murderous rampage. Sharon Corr provides the violin, most noticeable in Runaway. Jim Corr is the brains behind the album and music and also is involved in producing the album. Caroline Corr does the drums and well... you can't have a good song without a drum beat. The four siblings collaborate amazingly well together seeing as how most siblings just fight and the album is definitely one of the greatest I have ever heard.
The Irish and Celtic aspects are kept in the album with the use of such instruments as the bodhran and the violin. The beauty of the non-lyrical music is best heard in the instrumental track Paddy McCarthy.
Some critics have said that the album lacks the punch of its predecessor, Forgiven, Not Forgotten and to those critics I have to say "you're wrong". This album is perfect for anyone who likes music ranging from easy listening to classic rock. It provides the middle ground for those two genres, which incidentally is the group I find myself in. It contains lyrically sound pieces with inspiring music; this album is a must have for most real music lovers.
Warner Music however has added, I suspect, something in the manufacturing process that makes the discs unplayable on some computer cd/dvd players. My ASUS can't handle it. I must use an older external LG to play these. No problem whatsoever with hundreds of classical music cd-s from other labels, but all four Corrs albums I ordered have this issue. I've read about other people having this issue, so I am not alone in this. Well.. off to the Internet I go and download some flacs. And never touch a Warner CD ever again.
And if someone asks why I play my cd-s on my PC it's because I can only afford so much technology. Labels should make life easier for their clients, not harder.
tl;dr ? Awesome music. Disc unreadable on some computer drives.
Other highlights are So Young, I Never Loved You Anyway, Love Gives, Love Takes, Runaway, and Queen of Hollywood. I am mainly a Rock fan, so it comes as a surprise to find myself giving five stars to an album that consists of pop and Irish folk music, but with seven out of fifteen tracks being highlights and the remainder being good, I really can't justify anything less.
