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.
