CD Reviews

It is REALLY the best!!!
Francisco Gonzalez | Mexico | 10/24/2001

"I've been a big fan of the Corrs since their first album "Forgiven Not Forgotten", and from then, I've bought all their albums, so, when I heard they were to make a compilation of the best of their songs I absolutely had to bought it, but I was afraid of the election of the songs, because they got a lot of great ones, and I did not want they to miss one of my faves... So I bought the CD and this is what I found:
1.-Would You Be Happier: This is a new song, it is in the style of "Rainy Day" (if you have heard it you know it is a rythmic song) or "Breathless", but it is a littler happier, It made me move my body as soon as I heard it.
2.-So Young (K-Klass Remix): From the album "Talk on Corners Special Edition" it is a Corrs classic, they used it in both Talk on Corners and Unplugged, and now it was a logic choice to put in here. The song is very pop, whith joyfull rythms and lyrics.
3.-Runaway: first played on "Forgiven Not Forgotten", this song has been included in almost all Corrs albums, it is a soft but powerfull ballad, and Andrea's vocals are at their best.
4.-Breathless: from "In Blue", this is the first world #1 of the Corrs, it's rythm and lyrics are great, and with this song they inaugurated their new popper style.
5.-Radio: from "Unplugged", this one is the very proof that the Corrs really sing, and play their instruments, this one was the song that stole the show on "Unplugged" and then again on "In Blue", being a power pop-ballad.
6.-What Can I do (Tin Tin Out Remix): another one from "TOC-SE" this is another ballad that appeared in several albums, this is one of that songs that hits you just in the center of the heart.
7.-The Right Time: extracted from "FNF" this is one good example of what happens when you mix the irish style with an up-tempo song, and the results are good.
8.-I Never Loved You Anyway: directly from "Talk on Corners" came one of my favorit songs, as the title says this is one of that "you left me because I wanted you to" songs. It is one of the greatest songs from the band, including, lyrics, music, vocals, etc.
9.-Irresistible: again from "IB" comes this pop song, that you can define with simple words: it makes you wanna dance. It is in the line of Breathless, but is less experimental, but for me, better.
10.-Forgiven not Forgotten: anothe classic from "FNF" a sad ballad with a mistery air, the irish element is present here, but the vocals are the best of the song, as well as the lyrics.
11.-Lough Erin Shore: an Irish instrumental from "Unplugged" it is very rythmic, very Irish, but with great arranges from the band.
12.-Only When I Sleep: one of the greatest moments from the band came with this song from "TOC" album. The Irish element is at its best mixed with the pop element, the vocals are extremely strong, and the lyrics are superb, the best of the best.
13.-Love to Love You: it appeared in "FNF", and is a corny ballad, but pay attention: being corny doesn't mean you are bad, sometimes we need this kind of "It would be great I could love you as you do me". See? that isn't that corny is it?
14.-All The Love In The World (Remix): from "IB" the mix was used as theme for Julia Robert's movie "American Sweethearts", and this is one of that happy cases when the remix is much better than the original, it is a ballad, a very complete one.
15.-Everybody Hurts: this one was a real surprise from "Unplugged", as you should know it is a cover from the REM great song, but to that include a violin a a softer voice, what you got? a great remake from a great song.
16.-Give Me a Reason: again from "IB" this one is still in the line of "Breathless" but certainly it is much softer, more thinked, the use of the violin is great, don't miss the detail of the reverse vocals.
17.-Dreams: in "TOC" the Corrs expressed all their Irish feeling and this song is the proof, beign a superb remake from the Fleetwood Mac song, it makes you forget about them, the Corrs made this THEIR song.
18.-Make You Mine: the other unreleased song is some of the best I've heard from the group, and it deserves to be included as one of their best song (if not the best) it has a mix of rythms from the pop to the country, and back again, it is a really cool song, and make you move your feet!!
19.-Una Noche: this one appeared in the latin version of "In Blue" and is singed along with the spanish Alejandro Sanz, is the spanish version of "One Night". The lyrics lost a little inthe traduction, but the duet works, as their voices mix in a very good tune. Well all that I found in my new favorite CD, and I consider it a wise buy, even thought I had almost all the songs in other Cd's. Plus, Don't miss the CD and photo gallery inside the booklet, it is great to remember the group from the beginning and watch how have they progressed."
Pop At Its' Best
Chris S. | atlanta, ga United States | 11/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though the just moderate success that the Corrs have enjoyed stateside might have some scratching their heads as to the justification of a best of set, the fact is the group has been huge internationally for several years now, though after only three studio efforts(and a European UNPLUGGED set), it does seem a little premature to roll out a hits package. Nevertheless, one listen to this set will squash any reservations as to the relevance of the album--if anything, this package makes one wonder why the group hasn't enjoyed more success here in the states. Stretching back to 1995, the set traces the groups initial musical roots, originally a hybrid of pop with hints of Irish thrown in. Their second release saw them move more towards mainstream pop, which was finalized with last year's IN BLUE.Though often dismissed as a knock-off Wilson Phillips, there's no denying the groups' way with a hook, ably demonstrated on such songs as 'Breathless', 'Irresistable','Would You Be Happier?', and 'Only When I Sleep'. Great,unabashed pop music doesn't come much better than this."
An excellent "best of" compilation
Erica Anderson | Minneapolis, MN | 10/30/2001

"The Corrs is a longtime fave of mine. I fell in love with their music the moment I first heard "Runaway". Although I do think it is a bit early for the band to put out a "best of" compilation, I nevertheless was willing to shell out the cash to acquire this compilation. I am so pleased that the band included the unreleased tracks like "Would You Be Happier?", "Make You Mine", and "Lifting Me". They made getting this cd even more special because listening to those songs for the first time made my day when I popped in this cd in my stereo for the first time. Those songs were just pure ear candy for this diehard Corrs fan. I am especially glad that the unplugged version of "Radio" was used as opposed to the original. The original is very good but the unplugged version is my favorite. The same can be said about the remix of "So Young". The K-Klass version of "So Young" is my favorite between that and the original version. It was the first time I heard the remix version of "All the Love In the World", and I must say I also enjoyed this version a bit more. I was not disappointed in this compilation. Presumptuous maybe nevertheless enjoyable."
