Talk on Corners

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Rebecca Wallwork
This Irish quartet of three comely sisters and their brother has a curious track record: After hitting it big in ten countries with FORGIVEN, NOT FORGOTTEN's delicately woven harmonies and Celtic-tinged violins, the Corrs then resurfaced with TALK ON CORNERS, which substituted techno-pop beats for pipes and folk melodies. On U.S. soil, this foursome seems to be aiming for something in between. TALK ON CORNERS: SPECIAL EDTION a selection of songs from their two previous releases draws equally on tradition "Only When I Sleep," "Little Wing" and on a need to stay in step with current sounds, as evidenced by the dance-remix cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and by "What...

This Irish quartet of three comely sisters and their brother has a curious track record: After hitting it big in ten countries with FORGIVEN, NOT FORGOTTEN's delicately woven harmonies and Celtic-tinged violins, the Corrs then resurfaced with TALK ON CORNERS, which substituted techno-pop beats for pipes and folk melodies. On U.S. soil, this foursome seems to be aiming for something in between. TALK ON CORNERS: SPECIAL EDTION a selection of songs from their two previous releases draws equally on tradition "Only When I Sleep," "Little Wing" and on a need to stay in step with current sounds, as evidenced by the dance-remix cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and by "What Can I Do," which tries to cover up its adult-contemporary roots with a head-bobbin' beat reminiscent of a New Edition song. This is highly crafted pop, and a stint on tour with the Stones -- paired with the current climate for pretty music -- says the Corrs have a sure shot of making it. Watch out, Sarah McLachlan.
All Music Guide - Becky Byrkit
Songs on the Corrs' Talk on Corners fly inoffensively past the window like scenery on a drive through the countryside, with two pretty singers at the wheel. This essentially Irish sister act with Corr group Andrea, Caroline, and Sharon on vocals, drums, and violin, respectively, and brother Jim on guitar and keyboards legitimately brings to mind comparisons with another family-based girl group, Wilson Phillips, particularly since the impulses and instincts are truly pop and not so much alt-traditional Celtic as they are often cited to be. This timely record documents a high-riding point for the Corrs by re-releasing newly mixed versions of "What Can I Do?" and "So Young," both highly compressed digital productions featuring their trademark glass voices and barely discernible acoustic musical instruments. Also on the record: "Queen of Hollywood," "Runaway," "No Good for Me," and their huge international hit ballad "I Never Loved You Anyway." The best and most spirited Celtic cut is "Little Wing," deliciously resting on the contributions of the dropping-by Chieftains. Each and every cut sounds wired for radio play; unlike the less Americanized, riskier Cranberries, the Corrs should enjoy a career as nicely sustained as some of the girls' best musical notes.
