    Hell Yeah. I picked up a leaked copy of it. I'll definitely be buying it as any Coheed album is better than 95% of the other stuff available.

    Its a decent album. Some of the stuff is as prog as coheed has ever been, although there are some really basic songs that worked there way onto the last album. I've always liked coheed for using different song structures and different parts, and that hasnt been as prominent in this record or NWFT.

    I was hoping TYOTBR would be another 15 songer like iv, but they've sought of moved themselves towards the more commercial song/album length.

    There also arent as many really cool vocal parts like in 'the crowing', 'blood red summer', 'radio bye bye'.

    Its a good album; not exactly what i had hoped for their last album (i guess).

    Excellent. The furrow they plough is normally nowhere near my thing, but they're f**king fantastic.

    I'm not a huge fan of Coheed and Cambria, the vocals have been too whiny for my liking (in saying that, I love the song Welcome Home), but these new songs sound much better than their previous work IMO. I might check out the album.

    Yeah, I saw them when they toured for Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV. They also toured for NWFT which was a year or two ago (they were originally playing soundwave 2008 although they pulled out and did a tour later that year.

    Absolutely incredible live- spot on! I'm sure they'll come out for this new album too, if you get a chance go and see them.

    Is an 8 year bump acceptable? f**k it I've been here way longer than 8 years :p

    Since this thread we've seen The Afterman Pt 1 &2, which were excellent IMO and their best story contribution lyrically, but received mixed receptions from fans, and The Colour Before The Sun, a non story album that was excellent in its' high points and less so in it's lows....

    Now we're back to the story, seemingly post apocalypse, with this epic that sounds like Domino the Destitute if it was written for one of the Good Apollo albums....

    That sounds really strong - would love that to be an indication of the rest of the album.

    I liked both afterman's together but individually theyeft me wanting more.
