Made in Shoreditch

I also contribute a weekly column to Made in Shoreditch magazine called 'Old East End/New East End', where I look at the relationship between the East End of old and new, looking at the changes and the stalwarts in landscape, residents and culture, focussing on one street or district each week. You can find it here.

The Coral - 1000 Years: Reviewed

Wednesday, 7 July 2010

The Coral, according to the NME (not the greatest source), are "one of the most consistently brilliant bands of the last ten years". Maybe true, they're a pretty good band.

1000 Years is, thus, a pretty good tune. A typically '60s approach is taken and the vocal harmonies match nicely within the choral vocal. It's a melodic little track this one, obviously, it's The Coral, and it flows pretty nicely.

The approach lyrically is simple and a tad repetitive but at just 2:52 minutes it doesn't drag on.

Whilst it's not as good as some of their earlier records like Jacqueline or Dreaming of You, it's still a good enough song.
