Even from my early Coheed fan days, I never thought they would rule as hard as they do now. Name another progressive/alternative rock band that could pull off funk-pop with a full horn section and still have it sound this great.
leak or not in the simplest terms: The Afterman is a great fully realized concept album over 18 songs. i fell off not having the patience with FFTEOF, NWFT, & YOTBR but this really blew me away for whatever reason.
This track is pure solid gold. New bassist has proven himself with this track, takes the lead like a pro. And the drums: fierce, precise and driving hard. The song just evolves and twists in so many great ways, I just can't stop listening. Since I haven't heard the leak, the new album really can't come soon enough for me. I hate the wait!
