4.0 out of 5 stars Something New- not for conformists, 27 July 2004
This review is from: The Coral (Audio CD)
This album gave me a shock from the first track, with a distorted crash of cords, I knew immediately that this was going to be one unusual album. I was not disappointed. It is a thoroughly enjoyable collection that I would recommend any folk-music or rock-music lover to buy. It is non-conformist and offers something new in each track. My personal highlight, Dreaming of You, combines everything I love about music. Folk-balad 'wailing', catchy tune, excellent percussion (particulary drums and glockenspiel)and exciting rhythms.
If you like steriotypical music with little change and regular rhythms, perhaps this is not for you- it is true, some of the tracks (particularly 'Wildfire') cna get a little irratating, especially if you listern to them (like me)non stop on a 6 hr car journey. But I think the fact that after the 6 hrs 95% of the tracks were as fresh and enjoyable as ever says more about the album then words could.
Look out for the pirate behind you in Skeleton Key, feel the ghostly nostalgic atmosphere in Shadows Fall and skip anything that gets too repetative and annoying. Well worth the money- I have not regretted buying this once.
