Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release, the seventh album by Irish outfit The Corrs. It is their first new material in two years, following White Light (2015). It was produced by T Bone Burnett, and recorded at RAK Studios in London. The band chose to include a song about Syria on the album, called "SOS (Song of Syria)", which they called their most "politically outspoken and evocative" song to date. Andrea also spoke of playing the song "Son of Solomon" for Burnett: "He said 'Okay, don't play that any more'. When you're on the verge of knowing something you're much better than when you know it too well. And he was right. That's when the magic happens." Caroline Corr described the recording process as "the most freeing experience we've had in the studio." The album was primarily recorded live, with minimal overdubbing. While working on the album, Burnett made use of 40 spools of two-inch tape and a Ludwig drum kit.

Following on from "White light", they return to prove that they have not lost their knack for penning those irresistable melodies they are loved for. Taking its title from its centrepiece song, "SOS (Song of Syria)", "Jupiter" was mostly recorded live, with minimal intervention by hi-tech wizardry. Producer T-Bone Burnett has provided his expertise, giving their sound a little twist, and the end result finds them at their most stripped-down and warm-sounding, organic and unpolished (very much like on their wonderful 1999 MTV Unplugged album).
The hooks, the harmonies, the Celtic undertow, the nostalgic feel, the political thematology which they so subtly incorporated in the previous album, they are all present here. The intimate, pared-down moments are the most effective, as witnessed by heartfelt cuts like "Son of Solomon" and "Live before I die", both prime examples of the band's incomparable ear for melody. The atmospheric "Season of our love", the most produced cut on here, is another highlight. One of the most unexpected surprises is the gentle, gorgeous "No go baby", a very personal 3-minute little beauty about a miscarriage. And closing track, "The sun and the moon", which grew out of studio improvisation, takes the place of the band's famous instrumental pieces (surprisingly there are none on this set).
As ever, the songs owe much to the serene vocals of raven-haired beauty Andrea who continues to front the band with such grace; her melancholic delivery is heavenly, and reason enough to overcome or forgive them any lyrical missteps. The Corrs' sheer pleasantness is almost impossible to resist, and their presence works like a perfect antidote in the bland and noisy musical landscape that is dominated by soulless, processed so-called songs.
