Except for the times when they sound like Maiden
I feel the same way about all of Coheed's albums: About half the songs are fucking amazing, and the other half are almost utterly forgettable. Although with their last album that ratio was more like one good song for every 4 boring ones.
They do have one other likable thing about them now; they just picked up Dillinger Escape Plan's drummer, who is AMAZING.
