1. Live at the Royal Albert Hall
2. Live in London
3. Live at Landsdowne Road (Region 2)
The quality of the 3rd disc is not as good as the first two but still excellent. It is though one of The Corrs best performance overall (save the best for last) and the highlight is the duet with the two sisters, Caroline and Sharon Corr. The sheer size and participation of the audience is amazing too.
You will be in audio nirvana with the first two DVDs if you have a high end audio system. After upgrading and tweaking my stereo system, I find that Live at the Royal Albert Hall is the best recording, also most of the songs on there are my favorites so that one is the most replayable to me.
If you were to only get one disc go for Live at Landsdowne Road.
This DVD contains an 85-minute sold-out show that rocked London's Royal Albert Hall, in St. Patrick's day (March, 17, 1998). In this very special presentation, the corrs perform some of their hits from the multi-platinium albums "Talk on Corners" and "Forgiven, not Forgotten", both available in US market. Unfortunately, this DVD does not contain special areas or interviews, but the show makes it worth.
The Corrs plays a perfect combination of pop and celtic music, being acclaimed by audiences all over the world. Here are the reviews for some songs performed in this show:
"No good for me"- This is one of my favorite songs. It's pop and very enthusiastic. The lyrics are great.
"Runaway"- This is one of corr's most popular songs of all times. It has a violin intro that is very pleasant. It talks about the relationship between soulmates, and how good a living with someone you love can be.
"Queen of Hollywood"- This song is awesome! The lyrics talk about a girl fascinated with luxury and sucess, who becomes famous in hollywood, but only disappoints her parents with the destiny she gives to her life. It is deep and beautiful. Good for reflection.
"Dreams"- This is a cover from Fleetwood Mac song, which made the corrs very popular everywhere. It is like a dance version for this classic hits, with violins and drum.Read more ›
After practically selling their first album door to door in 1995-97,the band finally recieved mass success in the UK with their hit cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and that would only lay the foundation for a good many ears and eyes to recieve the music of The Corrs in their own home.
Originally broadcasted in the UK, The Corrs: Live At The Royal Albert Hall was finally recieved by American fans later that following year.
In My opinion their performance is raw yet flawless as they showcase thier true talents blended with a Celtic heartbeat. In fact as I mentioned above, with their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" they are accompanied by McFleetwood on (I believe) 3 tracks on this DVD. One highlight of the DVD is watching Caroline Corr play drumside with McFleetwood during "Dreams" and through the classic Irish traditional set "Toss The Feathers". McFleetwood truly looks like a primal beast up on that set as he beats out some AMAZING rythym and rolls.
Vocally They sound astounding. Visually the DVD provides a simple yet detailed look into a live Corrs show, Thus examplifying how they work as a unit live in concert. The Show has a few different sound options (that which I cannot remember at the moment) but if you have a good stereo system, this show will sound almost real . . . I played it on my Dolby system at my father's home and I was absolutely blown away, It sounds as though you are really there and once again visually (Along with Audio) the show is truly amazing.Read more ›
Filmed on St. Patrick's Day, 17 March 1998 (which, incidentally, was Caroline Corr's 25th birthday), "Live at the Royal Albert Hall" is full of energetic singing and a thoroughly amazing performance.
It is obvious that the audience doesn't really have a clue as to who the Corrs are -- at the beginning. The Irish siblings enter with a bang, however, with the beautifully-performed 'When He's Not Around'. From there on in, the crowd is theirs, cheering them along through a great show.
What shocked me is how well they play live; it's almost better than on the albums. Some of the tracks are especially poignant, including 'Hopelessly Addicted', 'What Can I Do', and 'Intimacy'. Mick Fleetwood adds his expertise on the cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' (which is much better than the original), as well as the Irish instrumentals 'Haste to the Wedding' and 'Toss the Feathers'.
The DVD has no special features, but that doesn't stop it from being a great addition to any collection. The photography is wonderful, the sound quality is great, and the Corrs are, as always, amazing.
