Its been a some time since Coheed & Cambria's last album but the short haitus has proved worthwhile in every sense. Their latest effort is more polished than 'In Keeping Secrets....' in terms of both songwriting & production.
Whilst that album was both refreshing & a genuine surprise back on the musical landscape of 2003 - this album represents a significant & important leap forward for the band since their debut 'Turbine Blade....' appeared on the scene. These new songs show a band reaching out towards their musical & creative horizons.
'In Keeping...' is a good place to start for those not familiar with Coheed's individual sound, whilst also being a good place to pick up the (somewhat unusual)running storyline that runs through the band's catalogue. On hearing that album first earlier this year I was both surprised & encouraged to see that a major label had taken a chance on such a visionary & not necessarily commercial (in terms of the prevailing musical trend) band. Having listened to the album I quickly understood why - Coheed & Cambria are both unique & innovative whilst still being accessible. Their sound is reminiscent of both Led Zeppelin & Rush, brought up to date with somewhat of a hint of an 'emo' type sound (this reviewer hates to pigeonhole - but can think of no other way to describe their sound! - ed) - 'Prog Emo' anyone ?! But anyway this band are clearly about more than genre boundaries....
'Good Apollo...' pushes the envelop further. Following the obligatory intro. we are met with a brave choice - a gentle acoustic passage 'Always & Never' closely followed by the first single from the album 'Welcome Home' - a brilliant song that borrows from Led Zeppelin's 'Kashmir' whilst developing their own sound.

Once again Coheed have surpassed expectation.As a big fan of Coheed I was also a bit wary of this album coming out thinking it would be the end of the story which I have come to love.This album has everything though catchy riffs amazing lyrics and once again the Coheed esque we have come to love since SSTB.It opens up slow with a musical number then the acoustic song Always and Never which then builds up to the melodic riffs of Welcome Home which are continued through the whole album up intill, Final Cut.I won't give too much away of the story all I can is that it will surpass your expactations just like the 2 previous albums.Thank God for Coheed, this album is surely amazing

This album is exceptional. It forms a section of the third chapter of one grand concept governing all albums thus far. A concept series then, rather than just a single album, the style of this record is fittingly nebular; it oscilates between manically sinister effect-laden menace, tender, soaring innocence and vehemently twitchy angst. Standout tracks within the first part of the album include the epic call to arms 'welcome home', 'crossing the frame', 'The Suffering', 'The Lying Lies and Dirty Secrets of Miss Erica Court'. Such moments withing this first section give the impression that Co&Ca have really found a solid creative base for their music. Multiple guitars wander through the strange lyrical landscape of 'The Bag.On.Line Adventures' and Claudio Sanchez's vocals predictably excel. The final four songs are the album's real strong point. Ever-difficult to describe, they form almost half an hour of progressive musical experimentation, which masterfully works in melodic themes from previous albums (see also, final track of second album). This album is genius, a timely reward for those who saw potential in the band's inaugural offering.

Format: Audio CD
In the grand scheme of things I'd rank this somewhere above Second Stage Turbine Blade and somewhere below In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3. The most obvious thing you notice on first listening to it is that stylistically it's quite different from the previous two - the tone is generally darker and heavier, and Claudio Sanchez seems to have deliberately modified his vocals quite a lot. I suppose they would have been criticised a lot more if all their albums had sounded the same, especially since they're all part of the same narrative, but it's a shame that the first impression is of a more traditional studio rock album with a less wildly original sound.

On the other hand, the actual songs have grown on me hugely over time, and my first impression has turned out to be completely wrong. They may sound different, but this is part of the natural evolution of the story, and they're still as complex, catchy and involving as ever. There's a definite structure going on here as well, culminating in track 14, which is not only a reprise of track 6 but briefly revisits songs from the previous two albums as well. The story remains pretty impenetrable, but it seems to concern an older version of the character Apollo from the previous album, with an interesting twist in the form of songs told from the perspective of 'the Writer' - the guy who actually appears to be creating the story and actively torturing the characters within (track 6 is one of my favourites).

In short this album is fantastic, though if you don't own the previous two I'd recommend buying those first, since this one represents a bit of a change of direction. I can't wait to find out where the next one goes, however..
