  • On 2006's HOME, the sultry Corr sisters (and brother Jim) return to their Celtic roots with a set mostly consisting of traditional Irish songs. Many of these tunes are drawn from the songbook of the quartet's late mother, Jean Corr, giving the album added emotional resonance, particularly on the poignant Gaelic tracks "Buachaill On Eirne" and "Brid Og Ni Mhaille." Aided by the crystal-clear production of Mitchell Froom, the drumming of session veteran Matt Chamberlain, and the strings of the BBC Concert Orchestra, the Corrs largely avoid the somewhat tepid pop vibe of past outings in favor of a warmer, more organic atmosphere that allows lead vocalist Andrea Corr to give some strikingly nuanced performances. In addition to their own arrangements of time-honored Celtic classics, the Corrs also offer up engaging renditions of Anna McGarrigle's plaintive "Heart Like a Wheel," Phil Lynott's lively "Old Town," and Richard Thompson's melancholy "Dimming of the Day." While longtime Corrs fans will likely find this intimate record fascinating, HOME is also an ideal introduction for those seeking to hear the introspective side of the Irish band.
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.61) - "[I]t is the traditional ballads that are the story here. 'My Lagan Love' and 'Spancil Hill,' which open the album, are presented with lush, dramatic arrangements."
