This album is full of the typical catchy C&C riffs and choruses but also incorporates different styles not yet explored on previous albums. Claudio has a lot more variance in his vocal performance than on any other album and thus I think he has improved as a singer. The previous 'Good Apollo' album bears the most resemblence but 'No World' is overall more upbeat - having shorter simpler song arrangements without lacking any of the wonderfully weird and complex Coheed sound. Any fan of the band should be satisfied with this latest offering - if not blown away by it.
RECOMMENDATION: If you care about the packaging then make sure to purchase the deluxe edition. This edition is just the CD in a sleeve with no lyrics. The extra money may be worth it for the lyrics, the artwork, and the DVD.
THE DISC: (2007) 13 tracks clocking in at approximately 60 minutes. There are 2 versions of the release - the single disc in a slim cardboard sleeve (only); and the 2-disc 4-section foldout set containing the album on disc-1, and disc-2 being the DVD containing the making of the album with in-studio footage - including inspiration, turmoil, artwork concepts, etc (21+ minutes); original acoustic demos - 5 songs (27 minutes); "Mother Superior" performed live and acoustic (5+ minutes); and a tour photo album set to music (8 minutes). Included in the 2-disc set is a 14-page booklet containing song titles/credits, song lyrics, artwork pertaining to the story (by famed fantasy artist Ken Kelly), and thank you's. Recorded at The Pass Studios, Los Angeles, CA. Label - Columbia Records / Sony.
COMMENTS: After listening to Coheed & Cambria's 1st three albums... and then hearing this "Part IV - Vol. 2 - No World For Tomorrow"... it somehow just all fell together for me. Coheed & Cambria's 1st album - "The Second Stage Turbine Blade " (2002) was an odd listen. The music was incredibly intriguing for a debut. However, the vocals were the biggest obstacle for me to overcome. Five years and three complete albums later, I couldn't picture their music without the high-pitched creator and band leader Sanchez. The DVD lets you in on the mind of Sanchez - for the most part he's introverted and keeps to himself and his close-knit group of friends.Read more ›
If you were expecting the original 'No World For Tomorrow', look elsewhere. Save yourself the trouble of refunding your purchase.
But, instead of turning me away, it drew me in and made me actively listen, trying to piece the puzzle together. Volume 1 also marked a huge change for the story as it introduced The Writer and brought the earlier themes of sci-fi to life. It made what was being told more human and introduced the Writer's own failings and insecurities. It was a defining moment for the band. Now, we have Volume 2: No World for Tomorrow and it promises to close shut the story of Coheed, Cambria, Claudio and the whole Kilganon family before the first chapter in the story is released.
Volume 2 is Co&Ca's masterpiece. It draws inspiration from all three of the previous albums, warps them and presents a unified front that is the culmination of everything that came before it. The songs effortlessly move from unabashed rock to power ballads to pop, all cemented with Claudio's soaring, albeit polarizing, voice. Some of the songs here standout as the absolute best of Co&Ca. In particular, "Mother Superior," "The End Complete" and "The Road and the Damned" are probably my favorite songs created by Co&Ca. What surprised me was how I could hear some of their earlier work pop out in the songs.Read more ›

It's ok. I liked a few tracks, but one thing that has plagued Coheed on disc is the volume and layers of their music. I saw them live and it was amazing. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jorge Alberto Orduna SR.
