The Corrs is a Celtic rock band from Ireland consisting of the three sisters and a brother of the Corr family. In 1995 they released their first album called "Forgiven, Not Forgotten and scored reasonably well here. In 1996 they really broke through with a performance at the Olympics. Since then they have released five albums, all well-received around the world. Already for some years it is very quiet for The Corrs. They have taken a break, especially since three of the members want to spend time with their family (children) and one wants to pursue her solo career.
This is the second album by Irish band The Corrs and released in the year 1997. It is an album that had some success internationally and has been released in America. With this album, they have focused primarily on live performances and on television and three years later came the next album. Below is a discussion of some songs.
Only When I sleep is actually an interesting opening of the CD mainly because it is a slow song. It is a ballad with beautiful lyrics and were the Corrs really show off they voices. The chorus is definitely catchy and very good use of the instruments.
"When he's not around" is the second song on the album is a more relaxed summer song. There is good use of the violin and is nice especially with the catchy vocals of Andrea emerges great. A good song on the album, but not the strongest song.
So young is more of an up tempo song where the Corrs certainly are known for. The vocals come back to the foreground, but also the guitar. The song is most part just fun, to a more small dramatic part with violins but is certainly contagious.
"Queen of Hollywood" is one of my favorites, when I first had to get used to it. It is a dramatic ballad in which the rate remains slow. The use of instruments is minimal and it gives you almost a floating sensation. The vocals are beautiful and you are well involved in the song.
A pretty good album with The Corrs more clearly on their way to go pop and rock and Celtic Irish influences are more on the background. The album has very few instrumental songs as on the previous album. It is a musical family where everyone plays an instrument. I love the Corrs with the more cheerful Celtic songs and this album generally remains too slow for me. Not a bad album, but reasonable.
