  2. Welcome to the Corrs rate!

    As with my underappreciated, game-changing, groundbreaking, and generally amazing Bananarama rate, this is a hybrid singles / discography rate. What does that mean, you ask? Well, let me tell you a thing.

    In this rate, everyone must vote for the singles. Since the chances of us having another Corrs rate are nil, we will also be rating the albums. However, each album is optional.

    Here are some more rules:
    • Rate everything from 0 to 10, one 11, you know the drill.
    • Unlike the Bananarate, you may give your 11 to any song in the rate, not only singles.
    • If you rate an album, you must rate everything on the album - EXCEPT that if you aren't an instrumentals person, you can skip the instrumentals (marked with * below).
    • Also unlike the Bananarate, the extras in each album section are not mandatory if you vote for the album. Let's say you have the In Blue reissue, so you know the reissue bonus tracks, but not the B-sides. You can just vote for the bonus tracks. I leave it to you to determine how well you need to know something to vote for it.
    • Interludes (defined as songs under two minutes) have been excluded. This isn't a Janet Jackson rate.
    • I reserve the right to exclude an album/song from the results if it doesn't get more than, eh, let's say 10 votes. This is to prevent a situation where, say, I give Make You Mine an 11 (I won't but I could), two other people give it a 10, and no one else scores it, so it wins the rate despite only three people caring enough to vote for it.
    • When multiple versions of a song exist (e.g., album mix vs. single mix vs. Unplugged), rate the version you know best.
    • The exceptions to the above are the Unplugged versions of Radio and Old Town, since they were recorded prior to the album versions and released as singles.
    • Giving Breathless lower than a 10 is homophobia.
    Let's set a due date of, eh, July 14 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

    Good luck. And don't fuck it up.

  7. Great work so far!

    Checking - is their an option to just do the singles?

  9. Yes! That is all you have to do. Each album beyond that is optional.

  15. Thank you for the notification! Sure I'm in. I love The Corrs. I was at their concert in Munich two years ago and despite of the not so favourable reviews I still loved them.

    Me. At least to White Light. I love it.
