Opinion on the Coral's emergence has been divided. There are those who enjoyed the ramshackle charm of their singles and attendant album whilst there are others who dismiss them as blatant 60s revivalists with a modicum of the talent of fellow exponents The La's. Their second album sees them at least mature and refine their youthful vigour. 'Don't Think You're The First' drips with a melancholy that falls somewhere between Newcastle's The Animals and the Coral's homeboys Echo And The Bunnymen. Their new found gift for moody excellence gathers further momentum on 'Secret Kiss' and 'In The Forest' with Nick Power's Hammond organ an integral part of the songs. Quite why they released 'Pass It On' as a single is something of a mystery; it is a jaunty throwaway ditty at best and possesses an overly simplistic tune that doesn't lodge in the brain at all. Far better are the more complicated likes of 'Careless Hands' and 'Confessions Of A.D.D.D.'. Naturally these young Scallys still sound as if they were recorded nearly forty years ago but this is certainly a more complete and enjoyable listen than their patchy debut.
