The vocals in particular really stand out in this live recording but the orchestral accompaniment to some of the songs also adds to the enjoyment. It is very sympathetic to the songs and is never over-done. You can see how relaxed they all were and this must have helped lift their performance level. The high point for me is the beautiful duet "No Frontiers" sung by Sharon and Caroline with only Jim on piano providing accompaniment. It is so simply done and that helps the harmony and quality of their voices really shine through.
This album marked the first time that The Corrs worked with Mitchell Froom as their Producer, and when you hear the quality of the arrangements and performance you will understand why they wanted to work with him again and again after this (on "In Blue", "Live in Dublin" and "Home"). I feel that it is a shame though that the producers of the CD felt the need to edit out the "bum note" that Caroline played at the very end of "Runaway" and the banter between the band and the audience that followed, the DVD leaves this in. They also changed the order of the songs for some reason.
However, this does not spoil what is a truly excellent CD, a worthwhile addition to your collection even if you already have all of The Corrs' studio albums.
