Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness [Specia [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Much like Death Cab for Cutie, emo devotees were aghast with horror when Coheed and Cambria left the shores of their indie label to depart for the good islands of major labeldom. And for those just catching up on their Coheed and Cambria folklore, Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1 is first part of two, which will be the conclusion to their four-part concept album detailing the saga of two protagonists, Coheed and Cambria. It's not necessary to know all of the facts and story lines to enjoy IV, which is a prog rock opera on par with anything that Rush or Queensrÿche ever released. But the interesting thing to listen for is the evolution of the group's sound, since ...

Much like Death Cab for Cutie, emo devotees were aghast with horror when Coheed and Cambria left the shores of their indie label to depart for the good islands of major labeldom. And for those just catching up on their Coheed and Cambria folklore, Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1 is first part of two, which will be the conclusion to their four-part concept album detailing the saga of two protagonists, Coheed and Cambria. It's not necessary to know all of the facts and story lines to enjoy IV, which is a prog rock opera on par with anything that Rush or Queensrÿche ever released. But the interesting thing to listen for is the evolution of the group's sound, since success sideswiped the group with 2003's In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth. The emo chords and songwriting dynamics have been shed in favor of a more prog rock, heavy metal sound that was so dominant throughout the '80s. Nowhere is this more evident than in the album's opener, "Welcome Home"; with its bombastic strings, dramatic buildups, breakdowns, and dual guitar solos, it's one of the best metal licks never made in 1985. The album concludes with a four-part song cycle that acts as a subplot within the album, and will most likely act as a bridge for volume two when it's released. But conceptual plots aside, this is an album that finally lives up to the heavy metal promise and unapologetically delivers the goods with a full head of steam. [The DVD Special Edition includes two music videos, animated vignettes, in the studio footage and the short film A Favor House Atlantic as well as its bloopers.]

    True Coheed and Cambria Fans

    If you have followed this band from their roots as shabutie, then this album is phenominal potential being realized. a fantastic album. the best so far. the talent is unmatched. no other band can pull off such epic music and vocals and do it with such style.
