Story Synopsis:
Even if you are from an

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a very pleasing stage performance, with sharp and detailed images under bold blue, red, and green stage lighting. Fleshtones are nicely rendered and the black backgrounds are deep and solid. There are also occasional black-and-white shots. At times the focus is soft, creating a hazy appearance. Pixelization is occasionally noticed, and finer stage details shimmer with occasional aliasing artifacts. Still, this is a very satisfying picture that Corrs fans will be delighted with. (Suzanne Hodges)

The audio presentations are substantially room-filling, fully engaging all channels throughout. The production of the surround sound mix is remarkable and worthy of commendation. Overall fidelity is very good. The audio is delivered as 5.0, and so the front channels convey the lion

DVD-ROM Review:
After inserting the DVD into your DVD-ROM drive, the autostart of the DVD should kick in, loading the DVD-ROM features for this title. If it does not automatically load, open the folder for your DVD-ROM drive and double click on the corrs360.exe file. The DVD-ROM software is not available for Macintosh users, and PC users must have a Quicktime viewer installed on their system (which can be found at for free). Once the DVD-ROM software has loaded, the only feature available on this disc will automatically be loaded. This feature is a 360-degree view of the band playing two songs live in concert. The two songs played are "So Young" and "Live In London," and they are both pretty enjoyable to watch. I am not a fan of the songs, or the music for that matter, but I am a fan of the technology. By clicking and dragging with your mouse, you can move in a complete circle viewing the lead singer, the guitarists, the drummer, and even the crowd, and can see all of their reactions during the entire song. I am, however, upset with the extremely small size used for the video window and the lack of surround imaging in the audio. I was hoping to hear the voice of the lead singer rotate around me as she did on the screen only to be denied that satisfaction. I know the technology is available - at least it was four years ago when I got my first set of surround speakers for the PC. I understand the small video size is most likely due to a sub-par resolution, but this DVD seems to have a bit more space that could have been used. Also from the DVD-ROM software, you can find links to several Web sites developed for the creators of the software used in this title's features. I could not find anything too exciting about this particular release from any of these sites. I hate when great ideas for DVD-ROM features are fouled up for whatever reason. This title had real potential to be a great release. Space limitations may have set back the increased resolution and smart surround, but I doubt that was the issue at all. In this case, two halfway complete features do not add up to a whole.
