Product Description

Amazon.ca

Coheed and Cambria's first three outings were smart, adventurous affairs that didn't eschew accessibility and No World for Tomorrow proves no exception. From the title cut to the epic "The End Complete," No World carries an intensity informed by occasional touches of the light, such as "Feathers," which not only recalls the Van Halen classic "Dance the Night Away" in its opening measures but also gives a knowing wink to silliest and most histrionic elements of emo. ("The Hound of Blood and Rank" and "The Running Free" are two of the finest pieces C&H has thus far committed to disc.) Throughout, there are odd time signatures and multilayered sounds that will keep listeners coming back to dissect the album. As good as the pop-inflected elements on this record are, it's the closing "On the Brink" (featuring requisite nods to Pink Floyd) that steals the show and demonstrates that Coheed and Cambria's greatest attribute is that it stimulates the mind as much as the foot--a promising sign in a time when too many think too much about too little. --Jedd Beaudoin

Product Description

2007 album from the Alternative rockers, their fourth album overall. Recorded in L.A. with producer Nick Raskulinecz and featuring Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins filling in temporarily since the departure of Coheed's original drummer. The album, although more personal than any Coheed album before it, does complete the Amory Wars and is in fact, the final chapter in the saga of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon, the main character in a storyline that wraps all of their albums together. The album cover was illustrated by Ken Kelly, who was responsible for Kiss' Destroyer and Love Gun albums. Columbia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coheed is for today and tomorrow... Nov. 3 2007
By tacomaboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Once again this band has created a timeless rock masterpiece. For me, trying to choose a favorite Coheed album is futile. This band progresses with their music, mixes influences from their favorite bands into the songs, yet still manages to sound distinctly Coheed and Cambria.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coheed & Cambria's 'The Amory Wars' nicely wrapped up Nov. 2 2007
By R. Gorham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: Claudio Sanchez (lead vocals, guitars, keyboards, synth), Travis Stever (guitars, background vocals), Michael Todd (bass), Chris Pennie* (drums & percussion). *It is noted in the album liner notes that "Taylor Hawkins played all drums on this album".

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. And, that his music is a way for him to branch out and bring his innermost thoughts and fantasies to life. "No World For Tomorrow" is the 4th installment of Sanchez's sci-fi dream about the Amory Wars (want the full story - check out the series of comic books written by Sanchez and published by Evil Ink Comics). I've read that "The Running Free" is the first single to be released (a cool song with some great guitar work, minus the chipmunks gleeful background vocals with all the "ohs"). To date though, I am yet to hear any of this album on the radio. "No World For Tomorrow" starts off in mellow fashion. The gentle acoustic 1+ minute "The Reaping" sets the tone nicely for the title track (listen for the thunder in the background). Track 2 - the song "No World For Tomorrow" is my favorite on the disc (describing how the world is falling apart and there is great change coming). The melody is heavy - in my opinion, the heaviest and darkest thematically on the album. Other highlights include "Feathers" (an upbeat happier tune with some great rhythm guitars and a ripping solo); my 2nd favorite song on the disc - the intricate "Mother Superior" - with it's acoustic opening, rocking middle, and big ending (complete with orchestra strings); the rocking "Gravemakers & Gunslingers" with its fast pace and heavy guitars ("Go on and pull that trigger!"); as well as the entire 5-part "The End Complete" (tracks 8-13... the highlight being the album closer "On The Brink" - glorious guitars and bluesy undertone with an ending reminiscent of the prior album's last track, "The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut"). There is absolutely no filler on this album. I love the disc in its entirety. Out of the four Coheed albums to date, this "No World For Tomorrow" is my new favorite. In my opinion, it's more rock than progressive in tone. The band is extremely tight (showing maturity on their respective instruments) and the guitars are once again the show-piece of the band. Beware of the single disc purchase and the lack-there-of case and liner notes... go for the 2-disc set - it's worth it (5 stars).

5.0 out of 5 stars The End Complete Oct. 29 2007
By Terry Mesnard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was first introduced to Coheed and Cambria when I heard "A Favorhouse Atlantic" on the radio. However, it wasn't until Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Volume 1 that I gave into the temptation and gave them an honest listen. Since then, I haven't looked back. Co&Ca has been an almost permanent fixture in my car and on my computer ever since that CD. Then, I started digging deeper and realized that the members of Co&Ca were telling a story; a crazy, sci-fi rock opera that would ultimately span five CDs and contained more violence, melodrama, backstabbing and pain than any soap opera out there.

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. A scream here, or a refrain, a lyric or the ending of the CD. It did what a good multi-part story should do and come full circle.

I could go through and list my feelings toward each track, but I won't. If you are new to Coheed and Cambria, this is easily their most accessible. But it's also one of their best. I know some fans haven't been really into Co&Ca since their last album. Their sound has changed. For me, it's changed for the better and Volume 2 equally takes from their previous album and their roots to create what is arguably their best album yet. Give them a try, if you're new. It's a wild journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coheed & Cambria: Epic Band for All Time Oct. 23 2007
By William R. Barnard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In following with the epic feel of "Fear Through The Eyes of Madness", Coheed & Cambria have delivered a hard-hitting, rip-roaring, ear-bleeding gem of an album. This album outdoes even the most epic of metal bands from the '80's to present day. I would break down the songs one by one for you, telling you their pros and cons, but, honestly, there are no cons, and I don't think I have enough space here for the pros alone anyway. My favorite song on this album is definitely "Gravemakers and Gunslingers" because it really shows both Claudio Sanchez's (lead singer, guitarist) and Travis Stever's (lead guitarist) talents as guitarists. An easy five stars out of five. If there were more stars, I would give them. Five out of five does not even come close to doing this album justice.

A quick note on the band in general: I have told many of my friends about Coheed & Cambria over the years since the release of "The Second Stage Turbine Blade" and have had only a few converts. This has led me to believe C&C are definitely an acquired taste, much like good wine. You have to savor them, taking in every nuance. It's definitely a good idea to listen to an entire album if it's your first time hearing them. Their albums are not meant to have one song taken from them because their albums are a continuing story, meant to be taken/absorbed as a whole. For those of you who haven't heard much of C&C yet, give them a chance and I don't think you'll be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Epic Oct. 23 2007
By D. Peralez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As some of you may or may not know, Coheed and Cambria have had some hard times recently. A death in the Sanchez family and the departure of the rythm section brought up the question of the band's continuance. Luckily the band came out of their indefinite hiatus (if it can truley be called so) with this magnificent album. With Mic Todd (bassist) back in the band just in time for recording the album and the addtion of Taylor Hawkins on drums (I'm not sure, but I believe Chris Pennie did almost no drumming on the record) Coheed has once again managed to create a classic.
At first I was worried about the album. Not wanting to become dissappointed by my favorite band, I approached the idea of an album sans half the band a little tentitavely. I was assuaged, however, by the album's first single, The Running Free. WHile it did certainly have a different sound, it was still very Coheed-esque, complete with Claudio's high-pitched vocals and some kickass guitar (lazer effects are awesome).
When I got the full album, though, it blew my mind. It took me a few listens to really appreciate it but I kow conisder it one of my favorite albums.
My favorite tracks are The Reaping, No World For Tommorrow (in my opinion the heaviest song on the album), the Running Free, Mother Superior (complete with orchestral instrumentation), Gravemakers and Gunslingers, and the End Complete (which has a righteous solo). However, these are my only absolute favorites. This is, I admit, the only Coheed album where I would not skip some songs.
Although it is part two in the Good Apollo epic, its sound differs greatly from that of Volume 1. At times it reminds me more of IKKS:3 more than Good Apollo 1. Its more poppy, even though some of the songs are more melancholy. Lyrically and vocally, this is some of Claudio's best work. He really gets into the character at times and totally pulls off all his regular high notes. The guitars are also a lot more prominent, with guitar solos coming out the wazoo (at least, compared to other Coheed albums). In fact the only real qualm I have about this album is that the bass is less predominant than it was in previous albums and there are no outstanding bass or drum parts (its a shame that Josh Eppard wasn't able to return as well).
Be that as it may this album is a must for Coheed fans and rock fans. Get it now.
