I think another reviewer's comment that this is an album full of songs like 'Blood Red Summer' and 'Feathers' is correct. However, I believe this is to the album's detriment. Sure, those aforementioned tracks are good, and I appreciate Claudio's pop sensibilities, but no one wants an album full of them. One of the things that kept me coming back to this band, aside from the musically interesting and complex nature of their work, was the concept behind the albums. I'm just not as interested with this release partly because of the fact that there isn't a concept. I could live without that if the music lived up to the previous work, though. As it stands, the tracks are solid but not overly memorable. Island, Eraser, and Here to Mars are the standouts, but by no means are they classics. Ghost is interesting, but feels unfinished. Likewise, The Audience has a cool groove, but no real hook. Peace to the Mountain has a way of getting stuck in your head, but doesn't really grab me otherwise. This comes back to a theory of mine, which I'm hesitant to vocalize because it's unfair to the artist, but I've often seen songwriters' work decline when they get married and start having kids. I don't know if it's a priority shift or what, but the music usually suffers. When there's some type of longing, or struggle, or conflict--that's when the music is most real because that's when the songwriter is at his/her most creative. Obviously that influence came part and parcel with the concept behind the previous albums. Hopefully the band will go back to storytelling again. Well, there, I said it. Just my theory.

The Color Before The Sun is the innovative American Prog/Punk/Rock/Metal hybrid band Coheed & Cambria’s eight full-length studio album, it was produced by the band and Jay Joyce (who also contributes some piano) and released in 2015.

That hybrid sound isn’t quite so pronounced this time around though. There’s nothing on here that’s as heavy as the band’s heaviest output, there’s nothing as progressive as the band’s most progressive moments, there’s nothing as fast as the band’s fastest moments. Nothing is so sugary or so lush as the band’s most grandiose ballads of yore. There’s no summery happy single. There’s no ‘Welcome Home’ or ‘No World For Tomorrow’ or ‘Domino The Destitute’ or ‘Sentry The Defiant’ type big smashing centrepiece either. Even Sanchez’s usually immensely emotional, evocative and expressive vocals are a bit more restrained. He’s usually singing about the most dramatic point in a character’s entire life, and Claudio can really make you feel that. Here he still has the talent and the signature style but the performance is a bit more held back, a foot off the gas pedal and less hair raising.

As an album; its very much Coheed on the ‘medium’ setting. As such, it took the album a bit longer to really click with me than usual… but click it did. I’ll admit, the very first time I heard this record in full I didn’t like it much and I could imagine it getting bad reviews from professional critics without the time to really let it sink in because of the fact its such a grower and it does take a bit of listening to reveal all its secrets and hidden depths. Its not even as if it’s a return to roots or going back to their early sound either because although its poppy and cheerful it doesn’t really sound much like Second Stage Turbine Blade either.

Coheed and Cambria is my favorite band of all time so my review may not be of much importance to some but for the same reasons it may mean a whole lot to others. I've been a die hard coheed fan since "In keeping secrets" came out, and the band has inadvertently helped me through so much in my life. I was lucky enough to meet each band member past and present a few times and I just have quite a bit of respect for the band which inspired me to create the fan page "Heedfeed" a couple years ago.

When I heard TCBTS I wasn't sure what I would think considering this is the first album without a "concept" behind it. But really it doesn't feel like there isn't a concept. I think for once the concept is real life, if that makes sense.

This is the most mellow of all the albums Coheed has put out, I'm not going to do a track by track review as I find those to be annoying and also because when I listen to albums I listen as a whole, not just certain songs.

The album has a very upbeat and fresh feeling vibe, I enjoy it very much and I can't stop hitting play once it's over.
Just buy the album and enjoy the most refreshing thing to hit the music scene in years.

I love the Amory Wars universe, The duality between the albums and the graphic novels, it was great, and maybe it isn't over, maybe it is. Either way, as artists, C&C can do no wrong. This album is distinctly C&C in the way it sounds, it's like a mix of YOTBR and SSTB. But I find myself more emotionally connected to the lyrics now that Claudio has "unleashed" his voice from the amory wars story. For once, he is speaking to us directly about his life and his mind, and It's fantastic.

This is, of course, a fan's opinion, and for the most part people either seem to not care for C&C, or they are diehard children of the fence, and there doesn't seem to be much in between. I think the sound of this album in addition to the fact that it isn't a concept album may make this album more accessible to those who haven't been able to get into C&C previously.

Take this review as a first reaction, as I'm listening to it for a third time as reviewing. third time back to back, if that also tells you anything.
