I'm just now starting to get into the band, and I really really like what I've heard. What would you guys consider some of their better tracks?

I personally am a huge fan of Welcome Home.

Watc hing that voice come out of that big bear is kind of frightening. :p

I've still never really adjusted to his voice, so I don't listen to them much.

big fan. At first the vocals took time to getting used to, but then I accepted them and now it feels like Claudio's voice perfectly melds with the rest of the awesomeness. I love their sound.

And I'm really looking forward to their next album. Chris Pennie on drums, actually recording for this album, omg. Hopefully Coheed does a few songs or a certain style that lets Pennie really shine, because he is one gifted sob on drums. Perfect for Coheed's mix of prog/rock/metal, specifically the prog aspect. Sadly last album was kind of light on the prog, probably half the reason due to the last drummer leaving and Taylor Hawkins having to fill in - with guidance from Chris Pennie, but ultimately still Hawkins doing the work.

As for songs? from old to new:
Time Consumer, Delirium Trigger, Everything Evil, Neverender, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3, Cuts Marked in the March of Men, Velorium Camper 3: Al The Killer, The Light The Glass, 2113, Welcome Home, Apollo 1: The Writing Writer, the Willing Well series I-IV, specifically IV: The Final Cut, The Hound (Of Blood and Rank), Mother Superior, Gravemakers and Gunslingers, The End Complete III: The End Complete, TEC V: On The Brink.

Quite a few songs in there I enjoy but wouldn't consider a favorite. Those listed above tend to be the first tracks I listen to whenever I listen to a specific album. Oh, and live versions of their song tend to be insane. They are skilled live, sometimes I swear the songs sound better, they just put more into their live shows. Especially The Final Cut, of which tends to become an extremely long epic guitar battle, and lately apparently ending with Pennie doing a massive drum solo.

I like them. Oddly though, I purchased No World For Tomorrow the day it came out, but still have not listened to it, yet I still listen to all of their other albums regularly. :confused:

I'll check that list out, thanks.

At first I couldn't really grasp Claudio's voice either. But after listening he can really sing for this genre.

I'm watching some Neverender videos on Youtube, and some of their performance look and sound really really good.

eh I doubt it. It was simply a song in a trailer, of which was also in Rock Band, and isn't even from their most recent album. Some people might be interested in that song and look to more, but I doubt the movie is going to have any C&C throughout the main film, if even in the credits. A lot of movies have songs that they just like to use for the trailer and that's it. A good fitting sound for that trailer too actually.

I can see that complaint as valid for a lot of their work, when thinking of other bands having that same reaction to many listeners, notably Rush w/Geddy Lee.

However, there are some songs that even I cannot recognize how someone could dislike due only to voice. I say that because some songs Claudio achieves a perfect sound imho.

I'd say the best example of a "how can anyone dislike this because of the voice" song would be the live performance at Neverender of "Mother Superior".
Seriously, check it out. Pretty epic song, especially since the album version if acoustic and they use electric on the live version, that and the vocals, and drumming... it all comes together to make a version that blows away the studio version.

At first I had a hard time taking them seriously because of Claudio's voice. I remember when I heard "Blood Red Summer" I was kind of like WTF? Now, after hearing all their albums and understanding the concept of the band and seeing them put on an awesome live show, I am a big fan.


edit: My all time favorite track is "The Camper Velourium I: Faint of Hearts", which is supposedly a song about his gun.
