The Longest Album Title Ever

Coheed & CambriaCoheed & Cambria caught my ear with the singles on their last album: "Blood Red Summer" and "A Favor House Atlantic." If you haven't heard those songs, go find'em, they're good. But I never did hear the whole album that those came from. Then tonight I picked up their new album "Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV Vol. 1: From Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness" which has to be this progressive rock thing you guys keep yammering about. I gave the whole album a listen and I liked it. I don't think I liked the it nearly as much as I liked those two singles from the prior album, but it was a good enough listen for me to tap my toe and nod my head. Tracks 12-15 were especially good, and reminded me of a good album concept jam.

On a related note: please, don't compare these guys to Rush, or the lead singer to Geddy Lee. Not that it's an insult to either band, but it's just a pet peeve of mine that any male lead vocalist with a high-pitched voice gets the "he sounds just like that guy from Rush" treatment. If anything, this guy from C&C sounds like the dude from Wheatus.

  1. C & C is good stuff...I got "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3." It's an album that gets better with each track. I can easily see these guys going on tour with Mars Volta someday.
