I was going to try and hit an MCR show but with a young kid it didn't work scheduling-wise. Now if Coheed was opening for them the entire tour I may have gone... Great pic chknptpie and glad you enjoyed the show!

Listening to Vaxis II and I think enough time has passed for a full album ranking, letís do itÖ


1. Good Apollo Iím Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
2. Good Apollo Iím Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow
3. Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind
4. Afterman: Descension
5. In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
6. Year of the Black Rainbow
7. Second Stage Turbine Blade
8. Vaxis I: The Unheavenly Creatures
9. The Colour Before the Sun
10. Afterman: Ascension

Tough calls all around. The top two are solid and probably wonít ever change. 3-5 are pretty interchangeable and basically too close to call, I love them all dearly. Maybe a hot take with YotBR at 6, and above everything of than CBtS, but I think itís great. Itís sad to say but as much as SSTB had some great songs, there are also quite a few I just rate lower. Vaxis I had some of my all time favourite Coheed songs, but itís way too long, too much filler. Colour Before the Sun is solid and it sits above Ascension because that album just falls short.

Every album is still gonna be one Iíll listen to for the rest of my life though.

Solid ranking, though NWFT being that high is pretty shocking. I always felt that was clearly the least good out of the first 4.

If I was to do one:

1. In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 (possibly my favorite album of all time on any given day)
2. Good Apollo Iím Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
3. Second Stage Turbine Blade
4. Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind
5. Vaxis I: The Unheavenly Creatures
6. Afterman: Descension
7. Year of the Black Rainbow
8. Good Apollo Iím Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow
9. The Colour Before the Sun
10. Afterman: Ascension

It's weird seeing Ascension in the last position as I think it's a great album, but it's a bit too short and Holly Wood is one of my least favorite Coheed songs.

Yea, I just think itís severely lacking. Iíve been vocal about my thoughts on Domino previously (overrated imo) and it probably says a lot when my favourite songs on the album are Afterman and Subtraction.

As much as CBtS gets ranked at the bottom for most generally, it has songs like Island, Atlas and Here to Mars, which I just love.

Those songs are great, but it also has Eraser, Colors, and Young Love, which are among the worst songs in their catalog.

The album as a whole is just OK for me. I put it above YOTBR because it has better production. I donít know what they were thinking making YOTBR sound like that, but itís awful.

Coheed is in a similar level as DT to me, that is that even their worse albums are still pretty good.

100%, except way better than Dream Theater.

3>GA>NWFT>V1>Afterman>V2>2nd>Rainbow>Color

I think it's silly to split double albums.

3 (the band)>Georgia (the state)>No Work For Tomorrow>Van Halen I>Afterman>Van Halen II>The 2nd Law>Rainbow (the band)>BtBaM Colors

This is the weirdest ranking I've ever seen.

Especially considering Colors is the best of all of those.
