4 stars I'm normally the kind of person who recoils in horror at the slightest mention of 'emo music'. However, after listening to this album, I was pleasantly surprised. Actually, I was more or less blown away. Compared to their first two albums, which have strong emo influences, Coheed and Cambria have completely moved away from that sound on this album, which I'll simply abbreviate as No World for Tomorrow. This is an album with strong prog influences that make me reminisce back to Pink Floyd at times, especially the 5 track epic at the end of the album. This is an album where I, for some odd reason, wish I could find just one tiny flaw with it, and considering my musical tastes I really shouldn't even like this album as much as I do, but I can't explain it. C&C is finally showing signs of a band that is coming to full fruition and maturing in their songwriting. The instrumental work is still amazing, especially Claudio himself. Granted he's not one of my favorite guitarists, but he at least proves himself to be quite competent time and time again. I don't find any of the tracks to be exceptionally weak on this album; however I can't recommend this to anyone who doesn't like the sound of mainstream alternative rock. For those of you who like or can at least tolerate such a sound, then definitely give this album a try. This album isn't entirely of "masterpiece" quality as a few of the songs tend to sound somewhat similar, but it's definitely a step in the right direction for C&C. I could easily see them making a 5 star album in the near future if they keep going in this direction. 4 stars from me, but I'll add in half a star for the musicianship and some of the ideas that are developed in the 5-track epic.
