Overview

The appropriately named Corrs are an Irish pop group consisting of Andrea Corr on lead vocals and tin whistle; Caroline Corr on drums, bodhran, and vocals; Jim Corr on keyboards, guitar, and vocals; and Sharon Corr on violin and vocals. The traditional Irish instruments like the bodhran and tin whistle add a twist to the pop melodies of tracks like the title track and "The Right Time," where they are allowed some solo time. The Irish musical background of the band members is most obviously heard in Sharon Corr's violin work, used here more like a traditional Irish fiddle than a true classical violin. There are glimpses of the Corrs' skill as instrumentalists on tracks like "Erin Shore," the introduction on the album. There are a few of these instrumentals placed throughout the album, but unfortunately, none are much longer than two minutes. The focus is on the adult contemporary mid-tempo songs. The Corrs are more reminiscent of vocal pop group Wilson Phillips than traditional Irish bands like the Chieftains.

Wow.. its VERY rare to find an album that is, as a whole, absoloutely incredible but I've found one in the Corrs, ''Forgiven Not Forgotten''. Their music has so much feeling and its so incredible that it captures you and doesn't let go... BUY THIS CD!!! :)

Listening to The Best Of The Corrs, I went out and bought Forgiven Not Forgotten thinking, 'Surely they can't keep up the standard.' But they could. I even wondered why the proper (not unplugged) Lough Erin Shore wasn't on The Best Of The Corrs. Each song is superb, even though there are only 14 of them (the first track is a shortened version of the last), it remains the best album the Corrs have done (excluding The Best Of The Corrs, which is just a compilation of previous tracks anyway with a couple of new ones). Buy this if you have the slightest interest in the type of music.
