Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 2: No World for Tomorrow [Australia] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
With guitar bombast and shrill vocals, No World for Tomorrow concludes Coheed and Cambria's long-running prog-opera about family, homicide, and the apocalypse. There's enough genuine melody here to attract newcomers, but tuning in to Coheed's sci-narrative during its final installment Tomorrow is the finale of a multi-chaptered story is similar to watching Return of the Jedi without seeing any of the preceding Star Wars flicks -- there's still fun to be had, but one can't help but feel a tad uninformed. Accordingly, the album is simple ear candy for those who haven't studied the band's previous releases, and sweet resolution for those who can spot the references to older ...

With guitar bombast and shrill vocals, No World for Tomorrow concludes Coheed and Cambria's long-running prog-opera about family, homicide, and the apocalypse. There's enough genuine melody here to attract newcomers, but tuning in to Coheed's sci-narrative during its final installment Tomorrow is the finale of a multi-chaptered story is similar to watching Return of the Jedi without seeing any of the preceding Star Wars flicks -- there's still fun to be had, but one can't help but feel a tad uninformed. Accordingly, the album is simple ear candy for those who haven't studied the band's previous releases, and sweet resolution for those who can spot the references to older songs specifically "Blood Red Summer" and former riffs "The Crowing". Claudio Sanchez continues to steer his bandmates through progressive rock territory, using Queensr├┐che's Operation: Mindcrime and Rush's conceptual catalog to help light the way. Like the singer's shockingly huge mound of hair, Sanchez's vocals are campy, ludicrous, but nevertheless appealing, with high notes and vibrato-heavy lines drawing the usual comparisons to Geddy Lee. Still, the whole package may be difficult to stomach for some listeners. This is full-blown rock influenced by Tolkien novels, Marvel comics, and the Sci-Fi Channel; those who don't prefer their music with a side of Dungeons and Dragons should turn away at the first burst of synthesized thunder. But listeners who venture onward will find a number of enjoyable would-be singles: "Feathers," "Running Free," and "The End Complete IV: The Road and the Damned" quite possibly the most high-brow power ballad this side of "Silent Lucidity".

    Coheed & Cambria did it again...

    I have been following C&C since they started and love their work since they were known as Shabutie. This album has matured in many ways. Claudio's voice is distinctively different... more aggressive, which adds uniquely to each track. The band's choreography is at its best too. I can't complain... truly satisfied with the saga and how it ended. I hope they continue the story or start something fresh. Either way, I will forever listen to C&C. Another great masterpiece.

    Co & Ca Keep Getting Better!

    Coheed & Cambria's albums keep getting more and more complex and more fun to listen to at the same time. Claudio's guitar solos are getting better and the overall sound and direction of the band is nearly completely detached from the dreadful "emo" label. The highlights of the album are the hard hitting "Gravemakers & Gunslingers", "The Hound "Of Blood & Rank"", and the epic "End Complete" which consists of the last 5 tracks on the album...always the best part of the Coheed albums. Also don't forget to try to decipher the continued story that Co & Ca's albums cover. Very intricate, interesting, and often times confusing storytelling but tons of fun to figure out!

    amazing.

    a lot of people have been referring to this album as "epic". no other word can describe it. you can clearly see how much coheed have evolved as a band in this. chris pennie, the new addition, is great. for those who don't know, the album's drums are not by pennie, but i've seen them live twice since his arrival and no disappointments! *this includes some double bass in the welcome home solo!*

    Senior Slump

    This album can hardly be called progressive rock. Last album had many more breakdowns and changes. This album seems very ordinary with the pop formula applied (verse, chorus, verse,chorus,bridge,chorus,chorus) The effects on the guitars are very 80's sounding and don't have the Coheed sound. They sound more like Dire Straits or Clapton. The drums are less imaginative with the parting of their old drummer. All told, myself and friends included fell very disappointed.
