5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing album...and then some, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Afterman: Limited 3-Disc Deluxe Set (Live Edition) (Audio CD)
Just received this in the post this morning. I already owned both halves of the Afterman album and won't review them here as they are reviewed under the relevant items here on Amazon. I will quickly just say that I think the double album is a massive return to form following what I personally thought was a disappointing effort (Year Of The Black Rainbow).

So, this triple disc deluxe edition of The Afterman...is it worth it? The live CD has packaged some of the best tracks from the two halves and captured them brilliantly, as you would expect if you have ever listened to any other official Coheed live release. I was lucky enough to meet the band the other night and also spent time chatting with their live sound engineer, Mike. He has done a consistently great job over the past three years, and it is evident on these recordings. The band, as we have grown to expect, play flawlessly. Would be great to see them release a new live DVD from this tour as they are a very visual band.

But what makes the purchase of two CDs I already have worth it is the beautiful packaging. The package contains a book that details the Afterman story, song by song. I haven't read it fully yet, but am looking forward to learning the meaning behind these amazing songs. All of the lyrics are included and there are some good photos of the band in action on The Afterman tour.

So, despite the fact that most people reading this will already own Ascension and Descension, I fully recommend the purchase of this set and believe that any die-hard fan will add this to their Coheed collection.
