Album Review

Eschewing the eclectic dance pop that drove her 2007 debut solo album Ten Feet High, Andrea Corr (lead vocalist for popular Irish family band the Corrs) decided to pay homage to the artists who inspire her by putting together a collection of covers. Unpredictable, yet reliably steeped in the radio-ready, adult alternative patina that fueled her work with the Corrs and elsewhere, Lifelines opens with a smoky rendition of the 1938 Irvin Kahal/Sammy Fain-penned torch song “I’ll Be Seeing You,” followed by a sweet yet slick rendering of the Velvet Underground's “Pale Blue Eyes.” Elsewhere, a spirited telling of John Lennon's “No 9 Dream" pits Corr's angelic voice against an ELO-inspired foundation that dips in and out of psychedelic melancholia with studied studio grace, Nick Drake's "From the Morning" bounces around a marimba-infused, pizzicato backbeat that elevates the plaintive folk song to a full-on worldbeat jam, while Jon Anderson and Vangelis' “State of Independence" finds Corr adopting Anderson's spritely phrasing with appropriate impishness. Lifelines closes with a lovely, piano-led rendition of underground, manic depressive Texan Daniel Johnston's beautiful “Some Things Last a Long Time,” lending the whole outing an air of hopeful yet fragile, bittersweet defiance.

Customer Reviews

Such a beautiful record. Songs that really can save you!

For more than 15 years now, I have truly admired the way Andrea Corr can relate to the lyrics of her songs with that much passion. I can tell there’s heartfelt feeling every time she articulates a sound and that, for sure, comes across genuine. She is a real artist.

'Lifelines' is beautiful. A collection of songs written by great artists who you might not be familiar with, but you will definitely love once you listen to their songs being performed by one of the most amazing voices Ireland has given us: Andrea Corr.

Irish singer and actress Andrea Corr was perhaps best known as the lead singer of the Corrs, a Celtic pop group that enjoyed popularity throughout the late '90s and early 2000s. But when the Corrs took a break in 2006 (as several of the members cited a desire to have more time with their respective families), Corr struck out on her own with her first solo effort, Ten Feet High. Executive produced by Bono and released in 2007, the album featured 11 songs written by Corr in addition to Squeeze's "Take...
