The Afterman: Descension
So maybe I was bad and illegally downloaded the leak of this album because my special edition vinyl ws delayed.
Then again, maybe not.
aaaaaaaaanyway HOLY FREAKING CARP is it awesome. The Hard Sell, Number City, and Gravity's Union are all on a level of greatness that matches such Coheed classics as 21:13, The Willing Well II or Gravemakers & Gunslingers, while Away We Go and 2's My Favourite 1 are bouncy, upbeat poppy songs that just give you the urge to sing along.
It's a lot lighter of an album than Ascension was, but with both halves combined into one 84-minute album (bit short for a double album lol) the heavy and light really seem very well balanced.
I've so far listened to this album (ascension along with it for the full effect) at least 20 times and I'm just getting started.
I recommend any level of Coheed fan to get this ASAP. Even if you don't know them, check out a few of the songs I mentioned. There's so many different styles there's bound to be something you'll like.
