4.0 out of 5 stars Not great but far from bad, 17 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Afterman: Ascension (Digipak) (Audio CD)
For the fans who might have been hoping that this album was far-and-away from "Year of the Black Rainbow", you're going to be disappointed but it definitely is a few steps in the right direction (in my opinion). It's not the classic style of Coheed and Cambria that I fell in love with all those years ago but it seems to want to be.

The first single from the album "Domino the Destitute" is probably the best track off the album. There's no real meat to chew on here, the songs aren't anything too new or exciting from the band. It's not even that long (only 40 minutes compared to previous albums which have been over an hour long) but I'm attributing that to this being one half of a whole. I'm hoping the second half (Descention) will hold some of the classic riffs and seamless song writing that we got in their older albums

Worth buying, if you've liked their previous albums. If this is your first Coheed and Cambria album I'd suggest starting with something else such as "Keeping secrets" or "Fear Through the Eyes of Madness"
