Magic and Medicine is the second album by The Coral, released on 28 July 2003 in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number 1 in the charts, and on 10 February 2004 in the United States (see 2003 in music). The singles "Don't Think You're the First" and "Pass It On" earned them their first top ten hits.
The album title originates from a lyric in Time Travel, the hidden track on the band's debut album: "Well there's a war going on, ain't the obvious one. It's between magic and medicine". The US release features a limited edition EP entitled Nightfreak and the Sons of Becker (which was released as a mini-album in the UK).
