Way better than "Year of the Black Rainbow"

I'm so glad they came out with an album to redeem themselves after their abysmal failure when they released "Year of the Black Rainbow". It also seems that Coheed and Cambria are returning to their roots. What they have done here on this album definitely recaptures what they achieved on "Second Stage Turbine Blade". Something I thought they could never do again. But here I stand corrected. This is probably one of their best albums to date, and I'm so glad I have an advanced copy of the album, because it is absolutely awesome!

Wow...Just wow.

This is the Coheed that I fell in love with. The Black Rainbow was a great album (it's still Coheed, after all) but it wasn't their greatest. From what has been released, so far, this looks to be an amazing, epic musical journal, lyrically and instrumentally. Don't think, just buy. Sample the songs, if you must. You won't regret it.


I jumped on the C&C bandwagon after I heard Welcome Home, only to find that the band was so much deeper than epic solos and hard riffs. Their lyrics are beautiful, the guitar is sublime. And this album is a perfect example of their broad range as artists.

Key Entity tracks I, II and III are great, heavy hitting tracks with hard lyrics and riffs. While IV may sound and feel light in the music itself, the lyrics swept me away. In the same regard as IV, The Afterman is a light musical journey with powerful lyrics.

I hold this band in the highest ranks of Prog-Rock, right next to Rush. And they have never disappointed me with an offering. I'm looking forward to their next album.
