    It's definitely the warmest-sounding Corrs outing to date, and the austere studio setup lends itself to the band's penchant for pairing pop acumen with Irish balladry, which they do with great aplomb on heartfelt cuts like "Son of Solomon," "Dear Life," and "Live Before I Die."

    [Jupiter Calling] still relies too heavily on routine romantic fluff like “Hit My Ground Running” and the glutinous “Butter Flutter.” T-Bone Burnett has been drafted in as producer, and brings his usual taste and expertise

    Jupiter Calling occasionally borrows from the pleasant sophisti-pop popular in the Corrs’ prime, but the record largely consists of a solidly orthodox melange of fingerpicked guitars, mournful piano and Andrea Corr’s still exquisite vocals. The band play it safe lyrically too.

    The results are hardly raw skiffle, more sophisto-shimmery roots. Best on Fleetwood Mac-ish Butter Flutter but over-long and mawkish (SOS, for Syria). [Dec 2017, p.96]

Even if you won't find the radio friendly hit, there are some hooks here that will give you goosebumps. This is what the Corrs sound at this point of their career and they're definitely worth a listen. Expand

    This is an interesting release from The Corrs and does introduce new elements to the bands repertoire of material. Not as pop orientated asThis is an interesting release from The Corrs and does introduce new elements to the bands repertoire of material. Not as pop orientated as In Blue and more of a slow grower for the listener. Whilst this release is pleasantly differentiated from their other albums I must be one of the few who do like the production techniques and values of TBone. The Corrs are known for beautiful harmonies and Andrea's gorgeous lead vocal. However on this release these attributes are muffled to the extent that some lyrics are indiscernible to the listener and the harmonies feel like they've been pushed into obliqueness. Consequently you have an album of quality material where what are the best and most familiar talents of The Corrs are hard to find. This ends up being an album let down by poor production. A shame because the songs themselves are of a high standard. Expand

    Dava pra perceber que o CD seria meio melancólico, pelo título e pelas duas faixas que saíram antes do lançamento (Son of Solomon e SOS), masDava pra perceber que o CD seria meio melancólico, pelo título e pelas duas faixas que saíram antes do lançamento (Son of Solomon e SOS), mas o álbum todo já é demais. Ele é melancólico da faixa um até a última, assim nao dá The Corrs. Achei o White Light bem superior a esse álbum. Expand
