Moving and Nearly EPIC

""Coheed & Cambria" cannot easily be classified. They are a mixture of many genres- rock, metal, alternative, classical (yes), and punk. There is screaming in the background, poppy vocals and peppy tones- all mixed well together to carry out over epic songs.
It is very easy to get "lost" in this music. To listen and get transported to wherever it is that they are singing and playing from. In one song: "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3", it is easy to picture the war that they are singing about: "Man your battle stations! we'll have you dead pretty soon... Man your battle stations! we'll have you home pretty soon..."
It is very easy to just... flow with the music. To get wrapped up in it, letting it course through your veins and basically hypnotize you. "In Keeping Secrets" is definitely my favorite song on this album... but every single song is fan-f&ing-tastic! It is an amazing album. Unlike any other!
If you like punk music, but also like rock and metal, this album and this band is the perfect fit for you!"
