    Coheed is my favorite band of all time, and this album is not the best. They say in interview they come back to the roots. Well, couple of guitar riff make me feel like the first album but. A lot of electronicish sound around and a lots of ballad on this album. The album is too short. The album is very good but some of the old coheed spirit missing. I'm glad because I dont buy theCoheed is my favorite band of all time, and this album is not the best. They say in interview they come back to the roots.

    It sparkles with invention, creativity, crushing use of dynamics and, when all's said and done, just really strong songs.

    So far so grandiose. Fortunately, Coheed's music mirrors the scope of the project as a whole here. [ 6 Oct 2012, p.54]
