This band rock and if you're into the likes of Thursday, Deftones, Finch and Taking Back Sunday you will love this band.The vocals are an acquired taste but personally they rock! Get tracks "Delerium Trigger", "Devil in Jersey City" and "Neverender" and then buy this album.

Coheed & Cambria are, in every sense of the word, artists. They write stories, write music about the stories and then write comics about the music. At least, that is the approximate order. In fact it may just be a grand coagulation of pure, unabashed creativity. I'm a little bit ashamed to say that I'm very slow getting to know them, at time of writing it is 2007 and this album was released in 2002. I am, however, unturning the albums in the correct order, as so to put them in context.

I don't give many albums five stars. They have to be consistent, exceptional works of art which do not sag anywhere or lose themselves in their own sound.

Real opener "Time Consumer" instantly hit home for personal reasons (my name is Matthew). There is a lot of energy in the song. "Devil in Jersey City" is a poppy yet completely unique song which grabs attention right from the silly voices at the open. "Everything Evil" is possibly the best track, with looping, bloopy guitars and as it progresses into a more hardcore sound you lose yourself in what it creates. I really like the ending loop "Clau-dio-oh, Clau-dio-oh" because it throws a spanner in the works at the last minute. "33" is a plodding, machine like number which is probably the most different to anything else on the album. It's fairly simple, with a basic rhythm repeated throughout, but is executed to perfection. The last two tracks are "Neverender" and "God Send Conspirator". The first is another controlled frenzy of ingenious intertwined guitars with stop-start sections. The second is another great track in which we are smugly told "this town's not big enough for the two of us". We and the band know, we're onto something special.

This is one of my favourite albums of all time. This is emotional hardcore-style rock music.
The vocals are intersting on this album and i initially thought the singer was female but it becomes obvious that this is from a male point of view. The songs are generally around the 5 minute mark with great breakdowns and interludes. Its refreshing to see a band who really think about their music and provide a song which gives you a journey, rather than a short fix.
The music is not overly heavy but has enough of a kick to keep any rocks fans happy. The sense of melody on this album is amazing. The vocals are interesting and range from melodic singing to harsh screams (courtesy of the bassist).
I listen to a lot of metal and this album is a welcome break for me from all that aggression. There is anger here, but its more refined. This is just quality music!
Who are they like? they have a pretty unique sound but if u want an idea of the genre then i would say: Dead poetic, brand new, funeral for a friend.
Check it out of u get the chance!

Coheed and Cambria are one of the few bands out there who fall under the catergory of prog-emo. Many emo bands are thought to wirght their songs as or like poetry and coheed and cambria are no exception. With beautifully mastered lyrics and riffs coheed and cambria have done their genre proud. This album is amazing and you find a pattern in many songs where they build up to climaxes through quiet pieces of singing. Slighty better than their recent release though only a touch. A great album definately worth a listen to any emo fans. If you like my chemical romance,a static lullaby,thursday or maybe you may like them if you like the likes of sunny day real estate or mineral aswell. Whatever just listen to this band and you won't be dissapointed.

Cohheed and Cambria are a fairly new band on the music scene and they have gor off to a good start.
The second stage turbine blade is an emo-core offering with a difference. The guitar drums and bass tend to mege nicely together but the vocals are a tad off-key, I am not saying this as a bad thing its just..... well ... different!
The band sound like a cross between Thursday, The Used and the Dashboard Confessional. Claudio Sanchez (lead vocals & guitar) tends to sound very high pitch and child like in some songs but it works.
I reccomend this album for fans of Thursday, Finch, Dashboard Confessional, Further Seems Forever, The Used, Strike Anywhere, Glassjaw, Nine Page Apology and The Juliana Theory.
The best tracks on this album are 'Devil In Jersey', 'Delerium Trigger' and 'Everything Evil'.
To conclude this is a good album and definately worhty of four stars. Good Stuff

Coheed And Cambria's debut studio album The Second Stage Turbine Blade was released back in 2002. On this; their first ever album, the band's music wasn't as developed or progressive as it would eventually become, and the vocals haven't developed as fully as they are on the band's later efforts but it is no less of a strong record.

If you have only heard the band's later work, it may take a good few listens to adjust to the style and especially to get used to the production, which isn't as polished as the later albums, but you'll be well rewarded should you choose to preserve and allow the album to grow on you.

The Second Stage Turbine Blade is a great record, the songs are all enjoyable and the lyrics right from the off are as inventive and interesting as they ever became. If you watch the version of this album performed live on the Neverender DVD you'll soon come to appreciate just what a good album this is and how well it still stands up today even despite its production and Claudio's vocals.

Highlight moments include the opener `Time Consumer,' and `Delirium Trigger,' which foresees the direction the band would take on their next album and `33,' which is a fun almost pop punky song that sounds utterly unlike anything else the band would ever release.

To conclude; Coheed And Cambria fan should never overlook or write off this album just due to its age or lack of hit singles. Its still full of good songs that fit in with the band's overall catalogue better than you'd expect and is worthy of inclusion in any fan's collection.
