Ah, same week as here then. We got it Monday (although I've had it for a few weeks). Awesome record. Truly awesome.

Ahh....the former drummer in C&C is the brother of one of the Three members. Hmm....They have toured together on a handful of tours in past, and come within 30 minutes of where I live, so hopefully they jump on this tour too.

The more I think...I don't know if I like this tour. I just can't see it happening. I can't stand the guy from Coheed's voice and the more I compare it to Neil's it annoys me that they are more popular then C!

Is this the de facto Coheed and Cambria thread now?

I love Coheed & Cambria, but they do aggravate me. Their last album is a ten song masterpiece trapped in the body of a 14 song meandering mess.

On one hand, I think they may be the contemporary rock band that has learned the most from Iron Maiden without sounding like Iron Maiden. On the other hand, their big overarching concept/narrative thing is -- as Nick has pointed out previously -- a bunch of bullshit.

But on the whole I can see (and/or fast forward) past most of their faults and enjoy them heartily.

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.

Okay, I'll give you 30 seconds of one song.

No. At the very worst, it's 1:1, good songs to boring songs.
