Home is The Corrs' fifth studio album. An Irish-themed album, it includes covers of old Irish songs and traditionals, but also covers of non-Irish songs such as "Heart Like A Wheel". It includes two tracks in Irish, "Buachaill Ón Éirne" and "Bríd Óg Ní Mháille"; and three instrumentals, "Old Hag (You Killed Me)", "Haste To The Wedding", and "Return From Fingal". Home was compiled from a songbook of the late Jean Corr (their mother). The album was released exactly 10 years after the release of their first album Forgiven, Not Forgotten.
Although The Corrs returned to their Irish roots, the success of this album and its singles has been poor.
"Old Town" performed poorly in the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 43. The decision to cover and release the song was questioned, with Gareth Maher of CLUAS.com calling it "a disastrous one". Mark Weisinger from PopMatters stated that "anyone who has been waiting since the original, unremixed version of Talk On Corners for the Corrs to abandon their pursuit of the American pop charts to deliver another record along the lines of Forgiven, Not Forgotten will finally find their waiting repaid handsomely." The studio recording of "Haste to the Wedding" on Home is sometimes compared unfavorably to the live version on the In Blue Special Edition.
Despite album and singles sales below expectations, the album did manage to sell over one million copies worldwide. This is their 5th consecutive #1 studio album in Irish.
