It's okay. I started listening to C&C this year. It's definitely a guilty pleasure of mine...

I mean, their first two albums are good, but after that they got so up their own ass with prog and the "mythology" of their concept (a massive, incomprehensible comic book to explain the story? Really?) that I just cannot take them seriously anymore.

I don't put that much stock in the story - and I love the first two albums, so I definitely see where you're coming from... But I do like a few cuts off the third (sorry, I'm a sucker for "Welcome Home") and I just love No World For Tomorrow, because I can't even help myself. Pretty mixed on Year of the Black Rainbow though.

They are cheesetastic. Their lyrics are throwaway. The storyline appears to be a boatload of convoluted, sappy hogwash. Their ballads are unlistenable. For each of the last three albums, there are 3 or 4 songs so awful they make me cringe then lunge toward the skip button.

But when they rock out, they fucking rock out, and the cheese factor somehow makes it even better. So, say, a song like "Here We Are, Juggernaut" -- something in my brain just stops working and I'm headbanging and shouting in the car, and I don't even know how I got there.

Typical Michigan driver



...But seriously, everybody has to enjoy some cheesetastic music every once and while.
