The Prize Fighter Inferno, ‘My Brother’s Blood Machine’ (Equal Vision)

As the frontman for prog-emo extremists Coheed and Cambria, Claudio Sanchez is no stranger to self-indulgence, but on this self-recorded solo debut his lack of restraint makes for a messy amalgam of classic-rock balladry and falsetto dance pop that probably should’ve never left his hard drive. While Sanchez’s genre-hopping works occasionally — on a few Zeppelin-esque acoustic tracks — for the most part, this disc perfectly illustrates why Michael Jackson, Jimmy Page, and the guys from Erasure should never make an album together.
