"It's march of 2002 and I've accidentally tuned to the local college radio station when I am bombarded by a quizically catchy tune sung by what sounds like a high-pitched man or a boyish girl. 4 months later after repeated listenings of 'Everything Evil' and 'Hearshot Kid Disaster' on mp3 I buy the CD and it still hasn't left my player. In a sea full of well-meaning but ultimately uninspired and unoriginal emo music Coheed & Cambria stand out as something more than just another genre pandering, pop-punk wanna-be. Co&Ca eschew the politics of the emo world and the pretensions of post-punk angst rock for a sound that once accepted, yields untold amounts of talent and originality.From the single string picking intro of 'Time Consumer' to the pleading desperation of 'God Send Conspirator' The Second Stage Turbine Blade is an album of contrasts assembled like a fine novel with a sentence structure of sound. In fact narrative is important to Co&Ca not only in the album's conception as a companion to Claudio's own writing (on which the album is based) but in the composition of songs such as 'Everything Evil' where story progression isn't just a matter of words but is relayed musically as well through peaks and valleys and careful composition.Co&Ca may not be for everyone, but given the chance the raw talent of this group should be enough to entertain the ears of a broad range of listeners. If you can look past the genre labels and past the intial perception of the sound, the soul of Coheed & Cambria shines through in the experimental love for music it's members lend to their work. If their already dedicated following and live presence (with a headlining tour starting Feb '03) are any indication, Coheed & Cambria are destined for greatness. Do yourself a favor and check this one out. Give it a chance and I doubt you'll be disappointed."
This cd has touched my life and will always be a favorite

"Wow, this band is exactly what I was searching for. Music is something that I have enjoyed playing (drums) and listening to all my life. Early 2002 I remember searching for something new, emo was starting to kick full effect everywhere and I was hooked on stuff like Thrice and Taking Back Sunday but I still felt something was missing. I remember staying up late at night searching music websites and looking for a prog band that did not have "Im a 40 year old nerd singing about dungeons and dragons" vocals and "lets stuff every single over-played metal guitar riff into this song OK?" guitars. No luck, till my musically gifted friend showed me Coheed and Cambria. I didn't like it/or pay attention to it at first. I think it was the vocals that threw me off. But my roomate got the cd and after listening to it a couple more times I was HOOKED, forever. Seriously this cd is awesome and it IS fresh and is very intelligent and the band members are very talented. They mix so many styles of music together its amazing, and top it off with Claudio's voice and storytelling ability - WOW, it just blows my mind.

To the Nay-sayers -
Claudio is not a rip-off of RUSH, the ONLY similarity is the high pitch, thats it, they sing completely different styles

Don't be fooled by the MTV crowd that worships "Favour House Atlantic" (from their newest album) - its just their most poptastic song and teenage girls love that stuff i guess

Notice how the bad reviews usually post 2 sentences along the lines of "THIS SUX , omg he sounds like a girl! EWW"- they have no REAL criticism because they don't have the intellect/patience to appreciate good music, let alone form rational arguments.

Give Coheed and Cambria a chance!
If you feel something is missing in your cd case then this is the CD that will fill the void."
They better not break up!

"After ATDI broke up I extensively searched for a band I could get to the same level of liking with. My search took me through Thursday, Finch, Recover, Taking back Sunday, poison the well, Thrice and many many more similar bands..........This site was actually the tool I needed to find what I was looking for. The fact that you guys also bought this album are the reason I have a favorite band again cus I found Co & Ca by pilaging through pages of "People who bought this album also bought...." They are not as Hardcore as ATDI were but the vocals are simply amazing and his range is unbelieveable as he switches back and forth between Coheed's words to Cambria's word's. One of the few Cd's I can just put in and listen to all the tracks and have no real preference on which to hear. Can't wait for the next CD and they better not break up on me.
Sometimes there aren't enuff Stars but 5 will have to do."
