5 stars I dont think anyone needs to be reminded of how much i adore this band, so ill keep these reviews short and sweet. The Second Stage Turbine Blade is the debut (but the second part in the epic Amory Wars saga), and although it might be their weakest i still love every wait..can that every split second of this album. And whats not to love about it? the musicmanship is steller (some of the best ive ever heard) and yet at the same time its an extreamly fun album, and each and every song is so much fun to listen to/sing along to and even play along with. More focusing on the emo-punk / post-hardcore side of things with this album i think that is where it draws its weakness, Claudio's voice hasnt really developed yet and show a lot of weakness in some parts, but then again you have to take into account that these guys were influenced by the post-hardcore of the 90's with bands such as At The Drive-In and even punk bands like Bad Brains and The Misfits. The real stand out tracks come from the epic opener TIME CONSUMER and the heart-wrenching NEVERENDER although i could just name every one of these songs as the best as each song is nothing short of a masterpiece;

The Second Stage Turbine Blade - 7/10 Time Consumer - 10/10 Devil in Jersey City - 9/10 Everything Evil - 10/10 Delirium Trigger - 9/10 Hearshot Kid Disaster - 9/10 33 - 8/10 Junesong Provision - 9/10 Neverender - 10/10 1God Send Conspirator - 10/10

My Conclusion? i just simply adore this album as i do every Coheed album, if you havent heard this band you really need to, but i would start with one of there more progressive albums first if your new to them.
