iTunes Review

“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.

best yet...

i've been waiting on the coral's sound to mature-not taking anything away from their earlier efforts they put together the most amazing arrangements of any band, especially considering they were hardly old enough to drive. this is a solid album, well worth the small expense!

As a whole the alblum has a fantastic atmospheric quality, but to me it lacks a bit of the diversity amongst tracks that some earlier releases had (Nightfreak..., and Magic and Medicine). I absolutely love the last track (Music at Night), its dark, diverse, and beautifully melodic. Overall its a very solid alblum, I only wish it was a bit longer.
