Home is The Corrs' fifth studio album. An Irishmarker-themed album, it includes covers of old Irish songs and traditionals, but also covers of non-Irish songs, like 'Heart Like A Wheel'. It includes 2 tracks in Irish ("Buachaill Ón Éirne" & "Bríd Óg Ní Mháille") and 3 instrumentals ("Old Hag (You Killed Me)", "Haste To The Wedding", "Return To Fingall")."Home" is compiled through a songbook of the late Jean Corr (their mother).The album was released exactly 10 years after the release of their very first album "Forgiven, Not Forgotten" and brings the Corrs back to their roots.

Success

Although The Corrs returned to their Irishmarker roots, the success of this album and its singles has been poor.

'Old Town' performed poorly in the UK singles charts, just missing out on the top 40 (position in the U.K was #43) the decision to cover and release this song was being questioned. Some fans feel that 'Haste to the Wedding' is good, but prefer the live version available on the In Blue Special Edition.

While commercial success was small, many fans of The Corrs' folk sound feel that this is their best album since "Forgiven, Not Forgotten". The return to their roots separates The Corrs from other bands who turn away from their original sound, and the album serves as a real treat for fans that were originally drawn to the Corrs some 15 years ago; specifically because they offered a folk rock sound infused with the distinct sounds of Ireland.

With far below expected album and single sales, the album did however manage to sell over 1 million records worldwide.
