Editorial Reviews

Review

"This album has more mystery and elegance in it than any other album I've heard in a long while." -- The Tripwire

Product Description

The alluring debut album by Santa Barbara-based band The Coral Sea might seem simple, but is not so easily defined -- one of its many beautiful contradictions for you to explore: its graceful power, its tragic mirth; it's space rock and a string quartet... It calls to mind classic albums by David Bowie, Pink Floyd and The Beatles, with current comparisons ranging from Yo La Tengo to Mercury Rev to Radiohead. Pastoral, atmospheric art-rock, led by frontman and founder Rey Villalobos' luminous, androgynous croon. Standard Jewel Case.

This is one of those albums that would be on everyone's top ten list for the year (think How it Ends, by DeVotchKa), if only they'd heard it.

Dark and dramatic, with soaring vocals and melodies similar to obvious comaprisons like Muse and early Radiohead, but with a more intimate, human feel.

From the high emotion of Yesterday/Tomorrow and Fell, to the more mellow, wistful In Between The Days, to the inexplicably catchy Ancient Modern People, Volcano and Heart is worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars For all the Marbles March 3, 2006
By Freeze
Format:Audio CD
How is this album not getting any press in the indie rock mags? I read most of them to get suggestions on new music, but I have seen nothing on the Coral Sea. It's a shame as this could be one of the best cds of 2005. The easy, generic comparison to Bends era Radiohead is inevitable because of Rey Villalobos vocals, the symphonic sound, and the mellow drone. It's not nearly as dark as the afformentioned band. Overall it is a mellow affair with some songs coming off like if Mojave 3 turned up the volume a little. Rey's voice is really what makes this something special. The music has been done before, but not this well in quite a while. Get it @ [...] because apparently you can't get it here.

4.0 out of 5 stars the best music in years January 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Its like a mix between mercury rev, lightning seeds and radiohead but still completely different. It is the most beautifully sad record written since Strangeways Here We Come by the Smiths. No review can do this album justice and I cant wait for another one from this amazing band. It is a 5 star album but i cant figure out how to fix it from the 4 stars i gave it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected March 27, 2014
By John
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm surprised that I never heard anything from this band until this year. I bought it after hearing Lake and Ocean, and was amazed by the depth of the rest of album. The lyrics hit a nerve, reminders of regret, but the music redirects your focus to what's beautiful.
