4.0 out of 5 stars THe Same Sun Sharon Corr, 6 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Same Sun (Audio CD)
Second solo album from the former Corrs Violinist and vocalist, after "Dream of You". this is a more stripped back sound, with Sharon penning all of the songs, helped by Don Mescal and Producer Mitchell Froome. Very good indeed, with Sharons vocal delivery improving markedly over Dream of You and some truly beautiful songs, delivered very well at a concert in PAris I attended recently. Stand out songs for me are Take a Minute, We could be lovers, Raindrops, Wave upon an Ocean and The Runaround. Catchy, melodic Irish Trad fused with Pop and indicative of where The Corrs might have gone had they still been together. First rate effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Melodic Magic, 25 May 2014

I am a self declared 'Corr'-aholic and I get each of the solo efforts of any of the siblings. I loved Dream of You way more than anything that Andrea came up with. But this album is something else. Its beautiful.. There is no other word for it.
The lyrics are poetry, not rushed, not uber modern, not trendy, but classy and well worded (and hats off for managing to write lyrics today without the word baby in the whole album) And each song has been arranged in simple yet catchy melodies - not foot tapping record selling numbers - but melodies that give the album a common thread and a mood that is soft romantic and not rushed. Something that takes you with it to sunny Florence or picturesque Spain. Sharon sounds like she always did on her background vocals... Heartfelt and pleasant; without the slight strain that was criticized in her last album. I miss her violin interludes but that's because I know its Sharon, the album or songs don't require anything, they are just perfect as is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful!, 5 Jan 2014

This review is from: The Same Sun (Audio CD)
Sharon's second solo album was well worth the wait. Her song-writing has developed further, influenced no doubt by Don Mescal who co-wrote 7 of the tracks with her, and by Mitchell Froom her producer who co-wrote 3 songs (and who also produced or co-produced 4 of The Corrs albums). It is different from her first album not only because it is more "laid back" in style as a whole but because there is no "Traditional" Irish music on it, nor is there much evidence of Sharon's violin playing. Instead we are treated to her playing the piano, indeed two of the tracks are simply Sharon singing whilst accompanying herself on the piano ... and her singing is better than ever. The whole album is a masterpiece of simple production which shows that less can be more more. If you prefer to hear the simple quality of the songs to their production (or over-production as is usually the case these days) you will love this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical genius, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Same Sun (Audio CD)
A beautifully create album. Gone away is the over-production of current commercial music, superficial instruments and talentless singers.
The Same Sun is the second album by Sharon Corr and, perhaps is missing the violin element from her first, Dream Of You [Bar Edge Of Nowhere and We Could Be Lovers] yet does not make the album any less of a masterpiece.
An album great for a Sunday morning after a night out, an early morning stroll waling the dog in the countryside or even listening to whilst creating a artistic masterpiece.
From A HardCorrFan, 10/10. Less Corrs influence, but Sharon shows her solo artist side, which is amazingly talented.
ALBUM OF 2014!

Recommended if to listeners of or similar to Passenger, Leona Lewis, Ed Sheeran & Ellie Goulding.

Sharon's second studio album. A very refreshing album - well penned - Sharon has certainly done a superb job on this album with great lyrics and great melody. Highly Recommended!
