The Coral: Distance Inbetween

Album Review

Scouse-pop whimsy makes way for prog-psych lushness.

As the old chicken abuse joke could have gone, ‘you wear one samurai helmet...’ Even through their chart-busting years in the mid-00s, when albums such as 2003’s Magic And Medicine were huge hits on both sides of the Atlantic and Dreaming Of You was as ubiquitous as shite Leigh Francis impressions, Liverpool’s The Coral were still haunted by their quasi-novelty past of wizardly photo shoots and shanties about Simon Pieman.
