Coheed and Cambria  -  Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness

This is one of the best prog metal concept albums I've ever heard, if not the best.  Why is it not in the archives?

Because people fail to accept that they are a progressive rock band and not a non-existant "emo" band. It's very, very annoying. They shold be here.
I'm so prog, I clap in 9/8

So, so many people talks about that darn Coheed and Cambria that I ended up listening to them, and... they belong here as much as Good Charlote or Greenday... At least, this was helpfull; now I know what are you all Coheed and Cambria people talking about...

The album is pure prog.......

Progressive metal (shortened to prog, or prog metal when differentiating from progressive rock) is a heavy brand of progressive rock which is characterized by the use of complex compositional structures, odd time signatures, and other features.

If that doesn't apply to this album then I'm a Spice Girls fan.

If you're gonna give them a try you should listen to The Willing Well.  I comes in four parts and it's about half an hour long.    If I didn't know better I'd say the guitar solo in part 4 was Dave Gilmour.

EDIT : sorry for putting this in the wrong place.  Thanks for moving it.

Live the guiatarist even sings along to the solo as he plays, just like Gilmour

They are definately a Prog band, I don't see how you could compare them to the normal "punk" and "emo" bands out there... they are so unique and different it's amazing.

I have to confess to only hearing Good Apollo but having had it on repeat for about a month it leads me to this conclusion..........Anyone who says this album is not prog has not heard it, or doesn't understand what prog is.
