    The Coral may have been at this game for nigh-on two decades but there’s scarcely a moment here that seems tired or phoned-in. Instead, the Wirral lads have added another fascinating work to their canon.

    They may have done some drastic reshuffling and tried some new things on Move Through the Dawn, but it's a Coral record at its core and it's one of their most satisfying, too.

    It took several listens for the potions on Move Through The Dawn to take effect. ... Sometimes, slow burners provide the best flames.

    While these songs feel debulked, The Coral still can't square-peg their music to fit in neatly. [Aug 2018, p.117]

    An album that leaves few ripples on its smooth surface.

    11 songs thematically linked by a search for realty in an increasingly virtual world. [Sep 2018, p.90]

    It's sad to hear all their youthful fizz go flat so soon. [Sep 2018, p.28]

    Compared to their earlier work, 'Move Through the Dawn' as a whole feels more mellow, and a bit softer. Some might see it as the band losingCompared to their earlier work, 'Move Through the Dawn' as a whole feels more mellow, and a bit softer. Some might see it as the band losing their edge, personally I feel it's just them exploring a slightly different direction, and I think the end result is one of the best albums they've ever produced. Strongly recommended! Expand
