Picks and Pans Review: In Blue
The Corrs sisters—Andrea, Caroline and Sharon—are easy on the eyes; trouble is, they can be easy on the ears as well. Too easy. With In Blue, their third U.S. studio album, the chart-topping Irish pop quartet (which includes brother Jim Corr) display the polish they gained from opening for Celine Dion and the Rolling Stones on past tours. But they are overly glossed up here by pop überproducer "Mutt" Lange (whose credits include wife Shania Twain)—especially on the saccharine single "Breathless." Lange's three slick tracks interrupt the flow of meatier songs produced by Mitchell Froom, who has guided Sheryl Crow and Paul McCartney and who collaborated on the Corrs' Unplugged album last year. Though perhaps less radio-ready, many of these tracks reveal a more earnest and melancholy talent. On "No More Cry," the Corrs mourn their mother, Jean, who died in 1999: "No, we'll never be the same/...We'll find comfort in her strength/ One day soon we'll meet again."
