Coheed and Cambria suck. A lot. Do I have to elaborate? They're an only-slightly more palatable Dream Theater. The Second Stage Turbine Blade is basically just Rush's Hemispheres on 45 rpm. Compositional helmsman Claudio Sanchez's entire demeanor is as ridiculous and overblown as the title I just gave him (his hair is pretty cool, though). Anybody—with the exception of Peter Gabriel, circa 1974—who utilizes the concept-album medium to tell a story is absolutely full of shit. Like their similarly lame conspecifics Fall of Troy, at the height of their popularity Coheed and Cambria appealed equally to prog fanatics and scene-mall dwellers, two insufferable human sub-groups. Wait, did I already make the Dream Theater comparison? MORGAN TROPER
