EDITORS’ NOTES

“We’ve got to put the sun back in our hearts,” croons James Skelly over country-tinged guitars on “Put the Sun Back”, the third track of The Coral’s fifth album. It’s a statement directed at an unnamed love interest but it could double as a mission statement for Roots & Echoes, a record that sees the Merseyside band put a possible break-up behind them to re-emerge with renewed vigour and—as evidenced by the shimmering doo-wop of songs like “Who’s Gonna Find Me” and “Jacqueline”—a sizeable serving of soul.

One of the best contemporary bands in the world

All I can say is - try seeing these guys in concert. Afterwards I even got to hang out with them at the venue's bar and I was so starstruck by their unbelievable talent combined with utter humility and appreciation for their fans that I barely uttered an intelligible word. And they still gave my a show flier signed by the band without my even asking. Awesome band, great guys, unique sound, will listen to forever.

The Album That Introduced Me To The Coral

As the title says, this is the album that introduced me to The Coral. I must say I've been a fan ever since. The contrast in the songs on this album is amazing from acoustic tunes like "Jacqueline" to pure rock like "Who's Gonna Find Me" this album has it all. The fact that the album seems to combine all different decades of music is very nice as well (especially loving the 60's vibe). The Coral are definitely one of my favorite bands, and one of the best bands out there today. I also heard they are currently recording a new album? If this information is true, I can't wait until they release it.

Nice

Mellow yet has its fits of high energy. Reminds me of the Last Shadow Puppets but still manages to stay completely original. All in all an amazing album thats definately worth looking into if your looking for something different.
