Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Recorded at Ardmore Studios outside Dublin in early October, the Corrs sound comfortably at home on this orchestrally-enhanced live acoustic gig. With only two studio albums to their credit, it may seem a bit early to go for an Unplugged re-run but the inclusion of two new Corrs-penned songs and a trio of previously unheard covers as well as the live greatest hits means there's something fresh to enjoy. An unplugged session also establishes clearly that The Corrs, in danger of being perceived as pop puppets, are a real band who play and sing beautifully and can deliver the goods live. Encouragingly, the two new songs, "Radio" and "At Your Side", are well up to the usual Corrs standard, while much of the already familiar material benefits from tasty orchestral arrangements--"What Can I Do" in particular works better than the dance re-mix hit version. --Johnny Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, proof that the Corrs are great live 12 Aug 2003
By Darren Simons TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I've always been a fan of the MTV Unplugged series and was intrigued to hear how the Corrs would do on this. For those who don't know, the principle here is simple - all instruments are unplugged - no electronic keyboards and most importantly no electric guitars. Instead, you get a chance to hear some familiar songs sound that little bit different, and in this case it's done wonderfully.
A number of tracks stand out to me on this album since they've had to played a bit differently due to the lack of electric guitar - notably What Can I Do, Toss The Feathers (especially with the tin whistle seemingly flying off every now and then), Forgiven Not Forgotten (with a fantastic piano bit thrown in) and So Young.
Also included for the first time is Radio, a fairly pop-esque song with great lyrics, and sung superbly. Added to this are a couple of great covers - Old Town and the REM classic Everybody Hurts, the latter of which I think is possibly my highlight of the album as it's just done that little bit differently to the original.
All in all, recommended - one of the best Unplugged albums I've heard, and proof if it's needed that the Corrs are great live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Familiar yet with an extra shine to it! 27 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This new album of which we got a taste of from The MTV European Awards is definetly credited as one of their best if not the best release so far.The ochestra has definetly addded an air to old songs and to the new such as "Radio", a well-deserved and catchy number.Although it may seem to be just another version of Talk On Corners,it is definetly not,these live performances add a whole new sound to these beloved songs, old and new. Also releasing well-loved concert hits: "No Frontiers" and "Everybody Hurts", generous rewards to fans all over the world who have attended or heard their live performances. This is well worth buying to any Corrs' fan but also to the ordinary person who can become hooked by this Irish-ballad-rock-pop-ochestrated sensation.

The Corrs have complemented a fistful of originals with selected covers to make for a gratifying listen on their latest release, The Corrs, MTV Unplugged. i thoroughly enjoy this CD everyday, from the angel-like vocal harmonies to the instrumental mastery. Hearing Sharon's violin in a live setting enhances the matchless brilliance of the Corrs music. The same can be said of Jim's guitars and piano; Caroline's impeccable beat keeping, and Andrea's vocals and tin whistle. A delight on the CD is Caroline and Sharon's interpretation of No Frontiers. Of corrs, we know all sisters can carry a tune, but this is splendid, indeed. Personal favorites on the CD; Radio - great melancholy tune with Caroline keeping a catchy beat. (I love the drums in this song). By Your Side; enchanting harmonies, and a welcomed sentiment. Old Town is entertaining, right down to the trumpet solo and the 'Hola!' Everybody Hurts has been a favorite song of mine since REM originally released it. It is now that much more endearing to me with the Corrs' cover. The live version of Forgiven Not Forgotten is haunting, sending shivers up my spine with the violin and tin whistle . The Queen of Hollywood is sung passionately, desperately. So Young is just fun, no matter how you hear it, remixed, live, or acoustically. i could go on and on, and relate favorite parts of each song, but you're best to pickup the CD yourself, place it in your player, turn the lights down, and let yourself be taken along on a wonderfully, peaceful journey.
The Corrs MTV Unplugged blesses fans with the appetizer needed to sustain them until the next entrée of a new release.
Thank-you very much, Corrs! Your fans are satisfied and indebted.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Corrs at their best - live! 9 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Many may say this Irish quartet have taken advantage of their good-natured fans by releasing this album. It contains live versions of nine previously released songs, as well as live recordings of five unreleased tracks.
This album, however, shows the undoubted live performance ability that seems to come so naturally to this family. True, it could have contained more live material, but this CD is an excellent buy for any true Corrs fan.
'Toss The Feathers', a highly motivating instrumental, featuring Sharon's exquisite violin playing and showcasing a scarcely used traditional Irish bodhran drum played by Caroline, shows the quality and versitality of musicians on display here.
'At Your Side' one of the previously mentioned 'new songs' is an excellent example of the strength and dimensions of Andreas voice. Anyone in doubt of the singing voices of 'the other two sisters' is put in their place after hearing 'No Frontiers'. Sharon and Caroline share lead vocals on a track which shows off Jim's rarely heard piano playing skills. Often in the background and usually in the shaddow of his sisters, this man deserves more credit.
This album not only gives you a chance to hear The Corrs in action but also a sample of what's to come in the future. With a studio album, 'In Blue' on the way soon, we can be sure to expect some great live shows in the future.
This album comes highly recommended to any Corrs fan.
