4 stars Coheed & Cambria's fourth album, Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow, is part of the "The Amory Wars" comic saga created by its leader Claudio Sanchez. It is a combination of rock at times forceful, at times sublime, at times spatial, and decidedly direct. There is no room for excessively intricate developments, but not for that reason exempt from progressive elements that are incisive and powerful, with an aroma of the more aggressive side of Pink Floyd and also the Rush of the early eighties. The firm guitar riffs stand out clearly, very well supported by some keyboards that help to generate the atmosphere that the story requires.

From the clean acoustic intro The Reaping, the tracks follow one another swiftly, passing through moments of stupendous inspiration such as the intense No World for Tomorrow, the super rockers and festive Feathers and The Running Free, the passionate and sentimental Mother Superior, to the impeccable The End Complete III: The End Complete, which is probably the best achieved song and by the way the longest on the album (almost 8 minutes), with constant changes in the rhythm section and a dramatic final part.

The rest of the songs maintain the tension and do not lower their guard until the epilogue with The End Complete V: On the Brink, rounding out a very good album by New Yorkers. To enjoy from start to finish.

Hector Enrique | 4/5 |
