Coheed and Cambria, 'No World for Tomorrow' (Sony)

4
No World for Tomorrow
Critical Mass
Label: Sony

by Andrew Earles

The emo demographic, not known for surprises, pulled a big one a few years back by going bonkers for this upstate New York band's unapologetic fusion of the aforementioned genre with Rush, Dream Theater, and early Queensrÿche. But on their fourth full-length, Coheed's emo leanings have faded. Instead, this is crystal-clear, foot-on-the-monitor power metal: acoustic intros, guitar shred, thrash-lite riffing, Claudio Sanchez's vertigo-inducing falsetto, and a five-part closer that attempts to wrap up the band's baffling sci-fi conceptual saga. At the very least, No World for Tomorrow should ensure that 21-year-old dudes in women's jeans will gobble up reissues of 2112 for years to come.
