Album Review

Emotional band Coheed and Cambria's e-mail address uses the term "soft core," and that's not really accurate. The term molten core works better, as debut The Second Stage Turbine Blade lacks fluff and accentuates the same positives that made emo pioneers Fugazi great, not the least of which is a willingness to experiment. In this New York crew's case, this deviation comes from adding a prog rock feel to the proceedings, a facet highlighted by vocalist Claudio Sanchez's impossibly high vocal range at least as much as the technical riffing and fearless approach to soloing and other expressive playing techniques, hardcore politics be damned. Like most progressive fare, the C and C music factory occasionally sins in the name of its art, often doing in five minutes what could have been accomplished in three, but the mere fact that the group takes pride in knowing more than three chords is impressive. [The 2005 reissue capitalized on the group's later success by adding an unreleased B-side and demo versions of "Junesong Provision" and "Everything Evil."] ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi

Really dig this band...and this album

Not any songs on this album as good as Feathers, or The Running Free, but the first track might be pretty close I really like that song. A few other good songs from this album too, the rest are all alright. I really like these guys, usually i listen to stuff like thrash metal, and hardcore, so this is pretty different than the rest of my music library. It's cool though that the guys from this band must also listen to some heavier metal, becuase of some different parts throught the album like in the begining of Hearshot Kid Disaster starts out with a really heavy riff that continues throught the song. Really enjoy this album, and all Coheed and Cambria songs for the most part!
