Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the first album in four years from the former member of The Corrs. Lifelines is a real singers album - a deeply personal, warm and intimate exploration of her inspirations as an artist - and features a diverse, and sometimes surprising, collection of songs all built around Andrea's sublime and evocative voice. Produced by John Reynolds and featuring co-production on several tracks by Brian Eno, Lifelines is a personally curated collection of songs that have resonated throughout Andrea's life and includes stunning versions of songs by a range of artists from Velvet Underground, Kirsty McColl and Harry Nilsson to Ron Sexsmith, Nick Drake and The Blue Nile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
For the most part, cover songs tend to be a disaster. They often lack something magical that made the original version so special and are often performed by mediocre singers. In the past, however, Irish band the Corrs have managed to turn their few cover songs upside down, putting their own unique stamp on them - for example, their remake of Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' is so different from the original as to put them in two different categories. Therefore, when the band's lead singer, Andrea, decided to release an album of all cover songs as her follow-up to 2007's "Ten Feet High", I wasn't immediately worried. Looking at the song choices has solidified my belief in her: the album is fantastic.

In order to make "Lifelines" work, Andrea needed to choose lesser-known tracks and put her own unique stamp on them. Happily, this is exactly what she's done. Choosing from artists as varied as John Lennon (and no, she didn't pick the over-done 'Imagine'), Roy Orbison, and the Velvet Underground, she has crafted a record of eleven classics that weave together in a magical way.

From the first few notes of World War II standard 'I'll Be Seeing You', it's evident that this album is the polar opposite of her first solo record. Where that was a mess of over-production, this one seems to rely on the sentiment that less is, truly, more. For me, the best tracks are 'Pale Blue Eyes', which somehow weaves magic, sneaking up on you when you least expect it; 'Blue Bayou', a catchy and summery Roy Orbison tune; 'No 9 Dream', a dream-like explosion of color; 'Tinseltown in the Rain', which is not only unique but unexpected; and 'They Don't Know', a catchy yet scaled-back sing-along classic. That's not to put down any of the other songs, though, because they are incredible as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointing June 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a past Corrs fan, I cannot recommend this solo album from Andrea Corr, Lifelines. It consists of eleven mostly bland covers that typically served only to make me wish for the original songs. That's partly because these covers are often worse than the originals, with examples such as a slightly less enthusiastic version of Tracey Ullman's "They Don't Know About Us" (stripped of the original's fun '60s "girl group" throwback element). So many of the covers just seem unnecessary, like the cover of John Lennon's "No. 9 Dream." It's just a bad idea to do an easy-listening version of that classic tune! Still, if you feel like you want to have a few songs from this album, a couple of slow songs at the end of the album are not too bad, covers of tunes by Ron Sexsmith and Daniel Johnston. Those covers are better because she is singing less familiar songs, so she can put a bit of her own slant on the material without the long shadow of the original being cast over it.

LOve this cd from Andrea! Not a bad follow up to her solo debut. Highlights include: "They Don't Know". A great cd to have when you are waiting around for the next Coors cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT April 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Andrea Corr, and her voice, she has the sexiest female voice ever. If her voice and Adam Levine's voice had a baby, the world wouldn't know what to do with themselves.
Love this album, the old songs, and it is really cool to get sort of an insight into the music that inspired her as a musician, that may have helped create the sound of The Corrs. I love singing along in the car, though her range is more inpressively lower than mine. It is so soothing. My favorites are, Blue Bayou, Tomorrow in Her Eyes, I'll Be Seeing You, and Pale Blue Eyes, but there are other great songs as well.
