3 stars After the amazing IKSSE:3 I was ready for coheed to continue to evolve their sound. I new they were going to change. Just didnt know how much. Then came the commercials, the animated sneak peaks. I was pumped. I heard the first single welcome home and i immediately set it on repeat. Then came the actual album.

While not a bad album, its not their best. The first few tracks started with the amazing intro "always and never" Set the stage for an epic album. Then the middle portion started. Once upon your dead body, a boring track with a boring hook. I said to myself..okay one boring track, its not bad..just not great. its probably the only one. Wake up, The lying lies of miss erica court, the suffering, (wrong order i know), and mother may i. All..pretty boring tracks. I wasnt mad at coheed. Every band has there bad songs.

THANKFULLY after those bore feasts i was greeted with the willing wells. 4 of the best coheed songs ever conceived. Awesome time sig changes, amazing lyrics, vocal harmonies. The final cut live is one of the best things ever.

The band really show their influences on this album. Which is both a blessing and a curse ( i know cliche). You can definently hear the Zepplin influence on welcome home. Iron maiden on ten speed. The police on one or two tracks. I know there are some i am forgetting but just listen to the album and see if you can hear them.

If your going to get one cd by coheed though. Don't let it be this one. As a long time coheed fan. I say get..any of their other albums. If you get hooked, this should be the the last one of your list to buy.
