The Coral - Magic and Medicine (CD, 2003)

My brother put the song "Liezah" (track 3 from this CD) on a mix for me a few years back, and I fell in love with it. Found a punched-out-barcode copy of this a while later, and picked it up.

I never dove too deep into the Coral (sorry), but I always enjoyed it for a casual listen. They take their arrangements more seriously than a lot of other pop-ish bands, and their lead singer is very distinct in the voice department. I could see some people really liking this band, but I could never get fully immersed in it. But, I still love "Liezah." Great mixtape song.

The copy I have also includes their weird semi-follow-up, Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker. I'm not sure if I've ever even listened to it, as I always forget it's in there.
