A relatively short yet overwhelmingly impressive, passionate venture that definitely eclipses its predecessor.

In dialing back and containing its ambition rather than letting it bleed all over the place, Sanchez and company have found what might be a surer way forward.

After such profound progress in their Gilgamesh-like epic, the band can still surprise listeners by opening up more.

What we have here is a band that so desperately tried to make an album that was closer to their previous works that they failed to see the big picture of their current output.

This album was one that caught me completely by surprise. I have been somewhat of a fair-weather fan of Coheed over the years. If they happen to put out a decent album I quickly become a huge fan. While other Coheed albums simply pass me by without much more than one or two listens through. This was one that caught a hold of me pretty good. Not my favorite album of the year by any stretch but definitely a fun listen with some decent lasting power.

Everything about this album works. Claudio and Travis' back and forth guitar riffing, Zach Cooper's driving basslines, and, most of all, the return of Josh Eppard and his groovy-ass drumming that gives the album that unique feel that Coheed had prior to his departure. The only legitimate problem with the album is that, with the release of part II so far away, this album will feel incomplete for a while. That being said, this album is the band's best album to date. Buy it ASAP.
