  • As some of you may or may not know, Coheed and Cambria have had some hard times recently. A death in the Sanchez family and the departure of the rythm section brought up the question of the band’s continuance. Luckily the band came out of their indefinite hiatus (if it can truley be called so) with this magnificent album. With Mic Todd (bassist) back in the band just in time for recording the album and the addtion of Taylor Hawkins on drums (I’m not sure, but I believe Chris Pennie did almost no drumming on the record) Coheed has once again managed to create a classic.
    At first I was worried about the album. Not wanting to become dissappointed by my favorite band, I approached the idea of an album sans half the band a little tentitavely. I was assuaged, however, by the album’s first single, The Running Free. WHile it did certainly have a different sound, it was still very Coheed-esque, complete with Claudio’s high-pitched vocals and some kickass guitar (lazer effects are awesome).
    When I got the full album, though, it blew my mind. It took me a few listens to really appreciate it but I kow conisder it one of my favorite albums.
    My favorite tracks are The Reaping, No World For Tommorrow (in my opinion the heaviest song on the album), the Running Free, Mother Superior (complete with orchestral instrumentation), Gravemakers and Gunslingers, and the End Complete (which has a righteous solo). However, these are my only absolute favorites. This is, I admit, the only Coheed album where I would not skip some songs.
    Although it is part two in the Good Apollo epic, its sound differs greatly from that of Volume 1. At times it reminds me more of IKKS:3 more than Good Apollo 1. Its more poppy, even though some of the songs are more melancholy. Lyrically and vocally, this is some of Claudio’s best work. He really gets into the character at times and totally pulls off all his regular high notes. The guitars are also a lot more prominent, with guitar solos coming out the wazoo (at least, compared to other Coheed albums). In fact the only real qualm I have about this album is that the bass is less predominant than it was in previous albums and there are no outstanding bass or drum parts (its a shame that Josh Eppard wasn’t able to return as well).
    Be that as it may this album is a must for Coheed fans and rock fans. Get it now.
