12 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On their first album of new material since 2010’s Butterfly House, The Coral sound undeniably reinvigorated. With new guitarist Paul Molloy on board, these Brits remain committed to carrying classic psychedelic sounds into the modern era; the dark, serpentine strains of “Connector” suggest a lost Doors cut, while the dirty, garage-y riff powering “Holy Revelation” could have slipped off Nuggets when nobody was looking. But the rhythmic pulse pushing the music along is more intense than ever before, giving The Coral a whole new sense of urgency.

Another Arrow in the quiver

I have been listening to The Coral since before their US tour in 2003. This is one of their better albums...depending on which side of the band you like. This is the psychedelic side. If you want Magic and Medicine 2, look elsewhere.

I was a little wary about Lee Southall leaving, but Paul from The Zutons does great work here. Also Nick Power's keyboards seem more prominent than on Roots and Echoes or Butterfly House. It's easily my favorite since Invisible Invasion.

As far as stand out tracks:
Connector
Beyond the Sun
The title track
Fear Machine

Enjoy!

OK, I'm doing a 'sounds like' review...

I hear a bit of 'Siberia' and a bit of 'Heaven up Here' in Misfortune. It's a good thing. No one ever seems to say they emulate Echo and the Bunnymen but I hear it.
