Preordered the deluxe edition and got the album in 320kbps this morning; still waiting for the demos though.
It feels short for a Coheed album, but I only have to wait til February for the second half, so it'll probably feel more "whole" then. That being said, I love it. It feels a bit more condensed than their usual albums (with an 8 minute single, yeah I know) but it seems to span their styles from IKSSE:3 onward (I don't hear much SSTB).
Mothers of Men sounds like a mash up of Faint of Hearts and The Suffering, and Holly Wood sounds like a mash up of Al the Killer and Guns of Summer. Vic the Butcher sounds to me like the long lost demo of When Skeletons Live that they were trying to add in as one of the Willing Wells. Oh, and you can hear a lot of Prize Fighter influence in the best ways; Chondra even does some background vocals.

EDIT: I take back what I said about SSTB; the electronic beeps under an acoustic ballad vaguely reminds me of IRO-BOT, though there's a lot more Prize Fighter influence.

Aside from Holly Wood, this album rules.
Really? I dig Holly Wood. The drums are absolutely killer.

It's so repetitive and the lyrics are absolutely retarded.

Vic The Butcher rips so hard.

It's on par with IKS and GAI at least.

I'll agree that there are a couple lyrics that fall flat on this album. When I first heard the single and Claudio sang "The pride of Utopia, the greatest thing ever." I cringed. Claudio can do better than that. And yeah, the lyrics to Holly Wood aren't the best, but the vocals and drums are all over the place. I'd say spend more time with it, but I'm a straight up fanboy for this band so I'll defend anything they do

Mothers of Men and Vic the Butcher rank among the top Coheed tracks to date for me. The vocal harmonies during the bridge of Mothers of Men are just incredible.

Nothing short of great, although it does seem a little short, hahah.

The first time I heard Vic the Butcher I knocked a hole in my wall out of sheer badassness. Goodnight, Fair Lady is probably one of my favorites, and the spoken parts of the All-Mother give chills every time. Domino is a great pick for a single and I'm sure it'll rank up there with Ten Speed. I didn't like HollyWood at first, but it grew on me. The line "shes a few cards short of a full deck" seemed cliche for a coheed song, but I guess it fits.

To get hyped for it I have been listening to all their albums for the last week ago, and not being that big of a fan of SSTB, I now love it. And although I'll get shot for it, No World For Tomorrow is my favorite (although not by much), they should shred more often.

Coheed is also one of the few bands that I listen to that I would consider "Art", plus I have a huge mancrush on Claudio and his luscious locks. I still haven't seen them live but now I'm gonna have to.


Has it been said if Ascension will have different album art? Can we assume Sirius' wife was killed by the guy in Goodnight Fair Lady?
