I have one of Wolfstone's CDs (Pick of the Litter) and I like it, but I don't think I've ever heard anything by Wicked Tinker....

Oh, I want to buy Wolfstone too! Do you like that CD?

Oh, come on. They look good, they sound good they are great. And lovely people, too, according to my Mates who toured with them in Australia ?two? years ago.

I tend to agree that they're getting poppier, but they still have that delicious Celtic flavour that's unique in the pop world. They can carry my flag ...

Well I still ordered Wolfstone's latest CD anyway. biggrin.gif

Now who wants to talk about the Corrs?! I just heard there latest single from their CD. Pretty good. Not Irish in sound, but hopefully there will be songs on the new CD that do. That was one of the things I liked about them. but then, I love U2 and they have no Irish sound to their music.Guess I shouldn't be so picky, eh?

Hello! For those of you who were or still are Corrs fans, I wanted to inform you of their latest CD. It is called "Home" and it is all traditional Irish music! So they have gone back to their roots and the CD is just so beautiful. I cannot recommend it enough. They also have a concert DVD from Geneva being released. This will be the same concert performance that I was fortunate enough to see at the Kodak theatre in August 2004. I have that on order now.

Anyway, just had to share about their new CD as I think those of you who liked their original Irish flavor will appreciate this new album.

Hope MacFive will be able to get it for y'all to get a listen to! wink.gif I have truly loved it!

I loved their first 2-3 releases, especially 'Forgiven Not Forgotten' and 'Unplugged'. But I've lost interest now. Is it just me, or have they been losing that distinctive Celtic/folky sound?
Their music now seems to be more pop than Celtic, and the fiddle and whistle seem to be taking somewhat of a backseat on their newer stuff. sad.gif

I think they have to make a compromise to go pop
if not, I don't think their songs can be played on Hong Kong radios

Hey Mingkee! Good to see ya! Actually, I think that may be true for anywhere. I had read where so many of their fans loved their first CD so much, which has a lot of Irish tunes, want them to go back to their roots and do some more. That is when, Caroline the drummer, suggested to her siblings to do an all traditional Irish CD.

I also ordered their Geneva concert DVD! That will be the same as the concert when I saw them, but mine was at the Kodak theatre. They do all the same songs, so I am thrilled and can't wait to get it!

Update on the Corrs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EXCLUSIVE: Corrs set to re-unite at some point says Jim Corr


THE Corrs are getting back together again some time in the future, according to the driving force behind the band, Jim Corr.
The eldest of the four siblings from Ard Easmuinn told The Dundalk Democrat that The Corrs are just "taking a long extended break".

"Music has been put on the back burner for the moment. We are not able to do much collectively as a band because Ca

roline has three children and Andrea's just got married," said Jim.

"We all love music and we love performing so I'm sure that some time in the future when the time is right The Corrs will get back together again."

The siblings briefly re-united to perform on stage at Andrea Corr's wedding reception which was held in a specially erected luxury marquee at the exclusive Doonbeg Golf Club in Co Clare.

Andrea married wealthy stockbroker Brett Desmond, son of billionaire Dermot Desmond on Friday, August 21.

Meanwhile Sharon Corr is back in the studio, writing and recording after taking a few years out.

Sharon appeared on the season premier of The Late Late Show on Friday last where she chatted with Ryan Tubridy and played her new single 'It's Not a Dream'.

The song has been released on iTunes in Ireland and The UK and is flying up the charts, entering the top 50.

I actually really enjoyed their (fairly) recent foray into Latin music when they teamed up with Alejandro Sanz.

The Spanish versions, mind. Not the English translation ones. Trust me.
