4.0 out of 5 stars The Coral is worth a listen, 13 Jan 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Coral (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the basis of a review I read in Q. Yes, there is a lot of hype around this band, but what the hype fails to mention is that The Coral have successfully fused melodies, musical influences and tempos that should NOT work well together.
This is the most eccelctic and original album I have heard in ages. Gems are: "Dreaming of You" (if you can listen to this song without singing along, you have no soul!), "Calendars & Clocks" (reminds me of an old La's tune), "I Remember When" and "Shadows Fall".
The album is not without it's confusing moments. "Spanish Main" kicks-off the record in odd fashion and "Skeleton Key" is a mish-mash of changing tempos and vocals that seems mispplaced. Nevertheless, this album is excellent and will take a few listens to gain a feel for what they are doing. Be patient. The Coral, are onto something very, very special, in my opinion.
I am eagerly awaiting their next release, due in Spring 2003. These guys are only going to get better.
