Really cool of them to put "Suspending Disbelief" where it was originally supposed to go in the track-listing for the re-release. You can hear how the feedback from the end of "Oh, Hello" blends in...

Hah, I personally think the S/T was the turn for the worse. I loved it when it came out, but looking back, that's definitely the biggest stylistic shift for the band.
"City" may have dropped the...

Yeah, he nailed The Rev's parts live! Arin was playing fills and nuances that Jimmy wasn't even doing anymore. He really brought those parts back to life.

"Hail to the King" is such an injustice to...

Yeah, there was an interview that came out a few years later where Matt delved into the Portnoy drama a little further since it was all resolved. I heard that too.

I have no idea what this band is even doing at this point. Arin is more than capable of being the drummer. He nails the "Waking the Fallen" and "City of Evil" stuff live, and that's the most...

In my opinion, his last album, along with the one he did with P!nk, did absolutely nothing for me. Kind of fell off and lost interest for a little... but this new single definitely caught my...

Ah, I misread "Descensus" and interpreted it as "Descension" haha my bad. Album titles are so similar.
Yeah, I thought it was alright. Probably my least favorite Circa album though, next to Violent...

Yeah, I agree with all of those points. The story of Coheed and Cambria is essentially the story of his parents, and Claudio's friend's/ex-lovers/wife/bandmates/etc. But since this new album is going...

Love Coheed, but I'm not that crazy about this song. It's fun and poppy, which is cool and not new to Coheed... but for the first non-conceptual song to be released, these lyrics are cringe-worthy. I...

Ah disagree. I love the gritty atmosphere he brought to it... Especially after the over-polished NWFT (to me, THAT is my least favorite production). Huge NIN fan too, so I'm down with Atticus. I...

Really not into this record. Honestly, I've been underwhelmed by the last three records. Black Holes was the last great one for me.

I hope that isn't the case... To be selfish for a second, I'm such a fan of albums. Song by song, or even EP by EP is kind of underwhelming to me. I get that new music is ultimately positive... but I...

I heard a lot of whining over Mene when it first came out about it not meeting the expectations of a six-year wait... People need to seriously stop thinking like that. Whether it's two years, six...

They're certainly not a band that has aged well. I mean, Lead Sails Paper Anchor is border line unlistenable... but for what it's worth, Congregation of the Damned had a few decent tracks on it that...

That's one of the problems with Record Store Day. Major labels have absolutely over-saturated it, causing quality control to be much harder to contain. Over the last few years, it's only gotten...

I work at a record store in NJ and for Record Store Day, we received three copies of Deja Entendu.

Two of the people who bought copies reached out and contacted us, informing us that their...

This bores me to death. A lesser version of Madness in my opinion. Can't get into this one. Can't get into Psycho. Used to love this band, but now I feel embarrassed every time I turn them on.

This song has to be a joke. There can be no other explanation. He had to have just been goofing off with this one.
