Acoustic versions of the hit Irish sibling pop quartet's best, plus covers of R.E.M.'s 'Everybody Hurts', Jimi Hendrix's 'Little Wing' and Jimmy McCarty's 'No Frontiers', all recorded for MTV Unplugged & to be broadcast at the end of November, 1999. Produced by Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello), mixed by Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, David Bowie) and with string arrangements by Fiachra Trench (Van Morrison). 14 tracks total, also including versions of 'What Can I Do', 'So Young' and 'Forgiven, Not Forgotten'. 1999 release.
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

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.
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.

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. Read morePublished on Oct. 17 2002 by Irishgal
This is my favourite Corrs album. Everything else from the Corrs has paled in comparison to the lively atmosphere that exudes from this recording. Read morePublished on Jan. 31 2002 by aston

This cd is far and away their best. This family band was born to play live. I love the unplugged verisons of the songs better than the originals. Read morePublished on Feb. 8 2001 by Dirk
