Vh1 & Corrs - a perfect match

"I pre ordered this album on amazon.com and can't wait to receive my copy. However, I've listened to the full CD online and I can assure it's great!This album represents a new beginning for the corrs in US. Just like the great unplugged album, released worldwide a few years ago, this CD brings some popular songs of the corrs, with 05 cover songs and very special participations of Bono (U2) and Ron Wood.The first two tracks "would you be happier?" and "breathless", two major hits of the corrs, are played in great acoustic versions. "When the stars go blue", Ryan's Adam song, is the first participation of Bono in this CD, in a provacative duet with andrea corr. "Little wing", featuring Ron Wood on bass, is beautiful and already known by corrs fans, from the unppluged album. "Joy of Life/Trout in the bath" shows to the audience the real spirit of the corrs. They can play pop and rock songs, but never letting irish folk music behind them. "Runaway"is a ballad and one of the corrs greatest hits ever. "Only love can break your heart" is an old song composed by neil young and covered by many bands such as everlast. However, none of the bands which recorded this song managed to recreate it in such a wonderful way like the corrs did. "Radio" is another hit from the unppluged album, also found on its studio version in "IN BLUE" CD. It's great and one of my favorites in the acoustic version. "Summer wine" is also a cover, originally recorded by Nancy Sinatra. Again, it features Bono, in a breathless duet with andrea corr. It's incredible to see how they have a special chemestry going on between them. "So young" is another popular song of the corrs, in a very special live version featured in this CD. Finally, Stone's "Ruby Tuesday", featuring Ron Wood. The lyrics are great and andrea corrs does a great job on its vocals."VH1 presents the corrs live in Dublin" is a great CD. I'm not stating this because I'm a corrs hopelessly addicted fan, but also because I apreciatte good music performed live. It's surely a CD no one can miss.PS: The editorial review of amazon is not fair with the corrs. They are very talented and do not sell millions of copies of their CDs only because of their looks. If it was true, they would never have a solid career for more than 10 years!"

"I first saw The Corrs opening for the Rolling Stones in Philadelphia in 1999. They were amazing. I went out the next day and bought "Forgiven Not Forgotten" and "Talk On Corners". It wasn't their looks that attracted me to them. It was the music. Great original songs and a great choice of covers.(Jimi Hendrix, Thin Lizzy, Neil Young, REM, The Beatles(a beautiful version of "The Long And Winding Road"), and the traditional Irish instrumentals. This new one is a must. The new single "Would You Be Happier?" should be a top ten hit. The cover of Ryan Adams's "When The Stars Go Blue" with Bono is breathtaking, and Andrea sings the Rolling Stones "Ruby Tuesday" like it was written just for her. This is not just another one hit wonder pop group. With a cheerleading group like the Rolling Stones, U2, Mick Fleetwood, The Chieftans, & Rod Stewart backing them, how can you go wrong. Buy this CD. WAKE UP AMERICA. THE CORRS ROCK."
Great songs from the band, but the "live"liness is lacking

"First let me state I'm a mediocre Corrs fan. I have "Forgiven, Not Forgotten" and "In Blue" and just picked up "Live in Dublin".The good news is with this CD is that these are the best songs I've heard the band sing. While some lyrics on "In Blue" and "FNF" are weak at times, that is certainly not the case with "LID". Some pretty good covers "LID". Such as Ryan Adams' "When The Stars Go Blue," Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing," Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," Lee Hazelwood's "Summer Wine" and the best cover of the album would be non other than Mick Jagger's "Ruby Tuesday". Probably the best song of the album in this reviewers opinion.Add in the best of the songs written by the Corrs, such as "Runaway", "Breathless", "Radio," and we have a great album. But it is the rarer Corr songs that really caught my ear. "Would You Be Happier?" a song that can only be found on their Import "Greatest Hits" album and Australian B-Sides, is simply amazing. I can't help but sing along after I heard it a couple times. One of the bands best songs ever! And another gem that I hadn't heard before was "So Young," from their "Talk on Corners" albums. Just a little uptempo song about the energy of having youth. The quality of the songs chosen are top notch on "Live In Dublin". While "In Blue" has plenty of filler tracks. "LID" is a great listen from 1 to 11. Bono, frontman from fellow Irish Band U2, is a great addition in 2 duets: "When the Stars go Blue" and "Summer Wine".So what's bad about the album? First off it's only 11 tracks. I'm pretty sure the concert was more then 11 songs! Also, these songs are performed live. The way the CD was edited together loses the whole feel of the LIVE performance. Only a couple of "thank you's" after songs, some cheers here and there are heard. It takes the whole "LIVE" feel from the CD. There's no anecdotal musings with the audience or fellow band members which you'd normally find at ANY concert. Really it says "Live In Dublin" but geez, there's not even a shout out to "Hello Dublin, how are you tonight?" It would have been great to hear a huge roar when Bono walked out on stage and such but all that was edited out. Also as I said before, the CD is only 11 tracks long. The quality of songs is top notch. Adding some more of my personal favorites like "Love to Love You" or "Irrestible" would have added to the track total as well as the quality of concert.If you are a Corrs fan, obviously you must get this CD. If you are new to the Corrs and are slightly interested in their music, "Live in Dublin" is definitely the place to start. They are sounding at their best and it's nice to see they have some good lyrics to work with(rather than half of the horrendous "In Blue" tracks). The lack of the poor "Live"liness being edited out. As well there is only 11 tracks(the concert had to be more then 11, really!). So those couple flaws, lands this great album with 4 out of 5 stars. Have no doubts about it though, you will be in love with The Corrs if you buy "Live In Dublin." So buy it now!"
