Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 Proof of Perfection Oct. 17 2002
Format:Audio CD
Some bands work studio magic to bring their songs to life. Others do it the old-fashioned way, writing their own material and playing their own instruments. These Irish rockers are of the latter category, and they prove it on this brilliant recording of their MTV "Unplugged" session.
The album opens with an almost haunting acoustic rendition of their "Talk On Corners" hit 'Only When I Sleep'. Backed by a Dublin orchestra and Andrea Corr's powerful vocals, the band shatters all rumors that they are nothing but mere studio magic.
Performing live, especially with an orchestra, means that some songs will have to be re-worked -- and they are, but not necessarily for the worse. In the tounge-in-cheek ballad 'What Can I Do', they manage to combine both versions - the original and Tin Tin Out Remix - to create a beautiful sound backed by gentle orchestral strings. 'Forgiven Not Forgotten' sounds even more mystical in its acoustic state, and the jig 'Toss the Feathers' sounds more Irish than ever with Caroline Corr's rhythmic bodhran driving it forward.
The album is full of great material, including previously unrecorded songs that the group has been performing live for years, including a gently touching cover of REM's 'Everybody Hurts' and an amazing duet between sisters Sharon and Caroline to Jimmy McCarthy's 'No Frontiers'. Not many bands can place such delicate ballads in the hands, or, rather, voices, of their backup singers, but the sisters do the song justice with some of the most beautiful harmonies I've ever heard.
Also featured on this record are two new hits - the jovial 'At Your Side' and the melancholy yet enticing acoustical 'Radio'. While the former is a testament to loyalty, the latter is both dark and uplifting at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Magic July 1 2001
By "noa_p"
Format:Audio CD
I am a Corrs' fan for a while now... And believe me - I'm not a pop person. Not at all.. But the Corrs has something different in them. I can't call them a "pop" band... Because they aren't. They make thier music out of their soul, and in this Uplugged album you can see it in the best way. The songs here are amazing. So is the music. In this album they show the whole world that they can make music... and a beautiful one, too. Some songs are already known, but there are some covers and some new songs that we will soon find on "In Blue" (which is much more disappointing). "At Your Side" is catchy and fun with lines like "I'll be at your side, there's no need to worry, together we'll survive through the haste and hurry...", Radio is more rocky, No Frontiers has great lyrics ("if life is a river, and your heart is a soul, and just like the water, baby, born to float..."), Old Town id upbeat and makes you wanna jump off your feet, and Everybody Hurts is just perfect. I'm also an REM fan, and I still can't decide which version I like more. Andrea sings it so powerfuly and so Passionately... It just makes you wanna cry. The instrumental tracks are also great. Toss The Feathers is so Irish and so makes you wanna dance, or at least watch "Lord of the Dance" and Erin Shore is just relaxing.. This album is my favourite so far, and I don't think it's gonna change for a long while. This is the album that I put in my CD Player every night when I go to sleep, and the album that I play whenever I feel sad or angry. It's just relaxing.. and it makes you feel fine. You listen to it and you just drown into Andrea's voice and into the wonderful music.. So buy it, and I promise you you won't regret it. It's just pure magic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Music May 26 2001
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of the band for some time, I snapped this CD up ASAP. But I must admit, each time I pop it into the changer, I enjoy it more. Now that 'In Blue' is making its mark on U.S. audiences, 'Unplugged' seems to sound even better. You can never realy appreciate the talent of an artist or band, until you hear them in front of a live audience, without the benefits of the mixing and vocal manipulations the so many artists rely on these days, to make their voices sound better than they actually are.The Corrs do an amazing job of replicating their recorded sound in front concertgoers and even sound great doing -what at the time- were new, unrecorded(and unfamiliar) songs. The voices of these Irish siblings blend so beautifully, it will take your breath away.
I think the highlights of this CD are the covers of REM's 'Everybody Hurts', Jimi Hendrix's classic 'Little Wing' and an amazing ballad called 'No Frontiers'. This disc is music that you can play at work, at home , in the car, on your portable... wherever! Get this one. You won't be sorry The harmonies alone are worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant pop with an Irish accent March 19 2001
By CMS
Format:Audio CD
Are you sure this was taken live? The album production is so polished that the only indication of a live performance is the applause between songs. While it's true that this performance is "unplugged," there's an entire orchestra backing up the four-piece band. The arrangements, though, are excellent.
But what about the Corrs themselves? The group's playing ability is definitely top-notch; they may not be virtuosos, but their chemistry as an ensemble is unmatched. I guess it helps to be siblings. I confess, I did not know any of this band's songs before getting the CD -- it was a gift to me from one of my cousins overseas. Turns out that good musical taste runs in the family. What's not to like about the crystalline vocal harmonies and gently rolling instrumental parts? Every track's a good one, even if some songs sound kinda same-ish and nondescript.
The 2-3-4 combo of "What Can I Do," "Radio" and "Toss the Feathers" (the last one a folk instrumental) is by far the best part of the album, but listening to the end of the CD has its reward -- the band's cover of R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" is a beautiful interpretation that would make Michael Stipe proud.

The thing about The Corrs is that their music is already so acoustic-minded that the difference from their studio albums to this »MTV Unplugged« is really not that big. Read more
