    Coheed and Cambria is what The Mars Volta would be if they sucked.

    A terrible mix of terrible genres. If you like this kind of music, there is a good chance you are a pretentions internet dork who thinks dragons are really cool.

    Cheesy, lame pop-punk bullshit. This is NOT prog.

    While the overlong album sometimes threatens to bury C&C with its own excess, the craftsmanship suggests the band is more than capable of breaking into the mainstream. [24 Sep 2005]

    [A] dense, inventive disc. [Oct 2005, p.134]
  3. C&C's music factory comes across as a unique, modern perspective of both rock's past and present.
