Probably one of my favourite albums by The Corrs, slightly different to their previous ones, Well worth having if your a Corrs fan. This compliation doesnt feature as many music only numbers like their previous albums offer, infact "Silver strand" is the only one. But in my opinion every song is catchy. I look forward to what The Corrs have to offer in the future.

Corrs - Borrowed Heaven
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 24/02/2008 06:42:04
Ok, so the Corrs have got their detractors but you won't hear any of it from me. As a working musician myself I can only applaud their approach to the music business and let's face it, that's exactly what it is. They've managed to carve a niche for themselves by integrating Celtic influences (fiddle and whistles) with rock sensibilities in much the same way that Fish and The Hooters did years before them. The word slick is often bandied about but then what else would you expect from a market that demands its music neatly packaged in three minutes fronted by three angels and their brother? In addition the quartet have utilised the services of some good guest musicians including those of guitarist Anto Drennan (ex-Davy Spillane band) and the programming of John O'Brien. If we're talking about the music (and I sincerely hope we are) then I'm sure that Jim has more than a little to answer for in regards to utilising every trick in the book from the Buggles sounding hit single 'Summer Sunshine' to the Beatles style orchestration on 'Long Nights'. Beg, borrow or steal you can safely assume that the Corrs music is geared to generations that although forever changing in their tastes can always make room for stock in trade middle of the road as polished as this. Andrea, Sharon and Caroline have no point to prove as they can all get by very nicely and although the album is workmanlike there's nothing that particularly stands out in their lyrics. No, this is an album that will quantify a purchase on the strength that it will not insult anybody's intelligence but can be played just as easily at a disco or as background to a dinner party. Never mind the quality - feel the hits!

Traditional Irish music together with the modern voices of today. Amazing band, amazing album. One or two songs you might want to skip, but still a very good album.
