  1. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    The Coral have hit a mid-career high on Move Through The Dawn, and given their prolific work rate, there is no stopping them now

  2. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    There’s nothing here that pushes the envelope for pop, or even for the Coral, but there doesn’t always need to be. It’s another lovely, solid effort from one of Britain’s most enduring bands

  3. 8.0 |   All Music

    Most of the record has the carefully constructed feel of an '80s Jeff Lynne production, with clipped drums, layered acoustic and electric guitars, and sonic touches like Mellotron and super-clean vocal harmonies

  4. 8.0 |   DIY

    Another fascinating work added to their canon

  5. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    August may be almost over, but Move Through the Dawn captures summer in a bottle and will help you handle autumn. Their best album since 2007’s wonderful Roots & Echoes

  6. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Their ninth studio album doesn’t quite have the magic of their early work, but it’s something special nonetheless

  7. 6.0 |   music OMH

    Glides along serenely without grabbing you by the ears

  8. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Inconsistent songwriting and a strange album cover detract from the confidence and musical strengths of the Coral's Move Through the Dawn

  9. 6.0 |   Q

    While these songs feel debulked, The Coral still can't square-peg their music to fit in neatly. Print edition only

  10. 6.0 |   Mojo

    11 songs thematically linked by a search for realty in an increasingly virtual world. Print edition only

  11. 5.0 |   Uncut

    It's sad to hear all their youthful fizz go flat so soon. Print edition only

  12. 5.0 |   Clash

    Album highpoint ‘Strangers In The Hollow’ suggests the light hasn’t entirely gone out, but it certainly seems to be dimming
