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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its amazing 27 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars simply fantastic 14 Nov 2005
By Hedon
Format:Audio CD
coheed third album is their best. word
they've come along way from the punky emo of SSTB and evolved into an epic prog beast that takes the best parts of Rush, Thin Lizzy, Led Zep, Jethro Tull, Queen Iron Maiden and even hints of the Police with Coheeds own unnique song writing, Sci-fi themes and just general weirdness. this album pushs the boundaries ever further with some simply stunning guitar work, intricate melodies, complex song structures and of course Claudio's helium filled lyrics.
the four part Willing Well will blow u away
An epic modern take on 70s/80 rock music. out of this world.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The finest and most original of their field 28 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
This much anticipated album from the wild quartet that is Coheed and Cambria arrived in late summer 2005 and made up the third album in the band’s repertoire, continuing their tradition of ludicrous, yet intriguing album titles. But the epic proportions of this album do not stop there. The ominous sleeve is removed to reveal an eerie, sinister album cover, establishing a dark, horror-themed artwork that continues throughout the booklet. This vast saga quality is in keeping with the graphic novels that accompany Coheed’s work, which I found equally impenetrable. One cannot help but feel that it is all a little pretentious, although it succeeds in creating the (presumably) desired effect.
The dark messiah like tone continues into the start of the album, with the awesome string arrangements by Karl Berger in “Keeping the Blade” that breaks into a sombre, breath-taking motif at approximately 1:10, which I challenge anyone to experience and not be filled with inspiration and anticipation for the rest of the album, an anticipation that I feel is not entirely fulfilled. Perhaps this premier track sets too high a standard, however I can in no way describe this album negatively.
Instead of bursting into a scream or a virtuosic riff, the following song “Always & Never” pleasantly surprises. It sets up a homely, nostalgic feel with the sound of children (though not sinister as one may expect) and sweet, woody guitar, that remains throughout the song, perfectly complimenting the sweeter, breathier side of Claudio Sanchez’s voice. The shortness of the song makes it feel like a nourishing breath before the album really starts, giving the whole album a stronger and more calculated impression.
