The Corrs Unplugged in NTSC At Last!!!!
Louie Bourland | Garden Grove CA | 02/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It has taken awhile for The Corrs astonishing "Unplugged" performance to make it onto DVD in NTSC format but finally, the wait is over!!
Captured live in October 1999 before a studio audience in Ireland's Ardmore Studios, The Corrs deliver an outstanding up-close-and-personal performance in a small intimate setting. In addition to what was then their current hits, The Corrs also debut two songs from their album "In Blue" ("Radio" and "At Your Side") which are arguably superior than what would wind up on that studio album one year later.
Additionally, the band throws in some stellar renditions of traditional Irish tunes which show off the full scope of their musicianship as well as cover versions of their favorite songs - R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts", Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams", Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing" and Thin Lizzy's "Old Town" - which are played in a way that only The Corrs can play them.
A genuine highlight of the entire performance would have to be the cover version of Jimmy McCarthy's "No Frontiers" in which Andrea Corr leaves the stage giving the vocal spotlight over to sisters Sharon and Caroline who give a stirring heartfelt performance here.
Definitely, this DVD was well worth the wait. This is arguably The Corrs best performance on video. Andrea's voice is strong and powerful throughout, Sharon's violin and vocal harmonies are flawless while Caroline and Jim show off amazing versitility by switching between different instruments during the show (Caroline plays drums, bodhran, percussion and piano, Jim switches between many guitars as well as piano). The band's strong back up from Anthony Drennan, Keith Duffy, Mitchell Froom and the Irish Symphonic Film Orchestra give the performance an even bigger boost.
Despite having a rather expensive price-tag, "The Corrs Unplugged" is worth every dollar and penny. It's a great companion to the CD and shows The Corrs at their very very best.
A Must Have For All Corrs Fans!!"
One Word: Excellent

"My first contact with "The Corrs" was when I saw they performing live on TV next to Pavarotti, and their beautiful voices and music left me breathless. I went to the Store and saw this video, and I thought: "If they can make a good Unplugged, they can make a good anything". I bought the video and when I put it on, I stayed completely away from reality from the beginning to the end. If you have listened to the Unplugged CD, you know what I'm talking about: great music, strong vocals, beautifull lyrics...But watching the video gives you a closer idea of what "The Corrs" do: they enjoy making music, and it goes reflected right to the screen. Plus, the video features (I think) the most beautiful songs of the group, including tracks from their first and second albums, and some songs never recorded. You get a lot of rythms whit this video: ballads, irish music, pop and rock, all of them performed with great feeling and quality, even better than their original recordings. In resume: If you already know their music, you know about the quality I'm talking about, but if you don't, this video won't let you a doubt about it."
BEST DVD EVER!!!!

"I have never reviewed anything on Amazon, but after listening and seeing this DVD I had to change that. This is undoubtedly the BEST DVD I have ever seen and heard! I waited years for this DVD to come out with Region 1 encoding, and it was worth the wait. This is The Corrs at their best. Clear, crisp vocals with just enough instrumentation. The "No Frontiers" duet with Sharon and Caroline is wonderful! I knew they both could sing, but not this well. Andrea is incredible as always. She has to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. It's easy to tell the group enjoyed making this video. The cozy setting with the partial orchestra was a wonderful idea. I haven't figured out how the audience stayed in their seats the whole time. The instrumentals make you want to jump up and dance. This is a MUST HAVE DVD for any Corrs fan! I only wish I could have given it more than 5 stars!"
The Best!

"The Corrs are the best band in the world. I love their music, and on Unplugged, they are performing at their best. Andrea's vocals are beautiful, and so is her tin whistle playing. Jim, Caroline, and Sharon are also multi-talented. This video showcases the humorous side of the band, as well as the raw talent that they have. This isn't just some band who was created by some record company, this is a family. Two of my favorite parts are when Caroline messes up "Runaway" and Jim makes a joke about it, and when Sharon and Caroline sing Heaven Knows (No Frontiers). This is definitely a video that you will want to own."
