No World For Tomorrow (Vinyl)
Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
Deluxe CD + DVD digipak edition of this 2007 album from the Alternative rockers, their fourth album overall featuring a bonus DVD with exclusive content.. 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.
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 --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

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.
They have released the album of their carreer. NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW is simply the best thing I've heard in years. They have the absolute perfect mix of retro-rock sound, mixed with metal, 80's style and even some pop hooks.
If you ever liked material like PINK FLOYD, RUSH, YESS, IRON MAIDEN and more...you'll love this. Must be heard to be believed!
They even released it on vinyl also. Bitchin'!
The sound quality is incomparable to the CD.
It's like you, as the listener, are put in the studio with the band as they jam threw all the tracks. And the etched designed on the flip side of the second record is a really cool addition to this set. The artwork on the inside of the gate fold blew my mind too.
A great purchase...
