You still get the all the tracks from "Second Stage Turbine Blade", which in my opinion is still Coheed's best work to date. Every song on the cd is memorable, and their musicianship was just as amazing then as it is now. Songs have a much harder edge, and are lacking the poppier elements found in their two following albums, which is a good thing. They do have catchy tunes in "Time Consumer" and "Devil In Jersey City" though. I tend to like the lyrics on this one a lot more too, because it seems like the songs individually could have a message, and not pertain to the story, unlike their later material which all directly relates to Claudio's CoCa backstory.Read more ›
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.
Sometimes there aren't enuff Stars but 5 will have to do.

Not my favorite album by Coheed & Cambria, but it is still a great album. This is the band's first album, starting the story of Coheed and Cambria (the characters). Read morePublished 11 months ago by Kendall
