One Among The Fence

I like a whole lotta bands but none move me to shivers, tears, rage, longing, hope, dancing, running, laughter...like Coheed and Cambria. Ive followed them since their first album Second Stage Turbine Blade, tracked them back a bit with Shabutie and every album forward since. Its hard to place what exactly I like about the band...there's not much, if anything, I dont like. The lead vocalist/guitarist, Claudio Sanchez is a lyrical, musical madman. I love his abnormal inflections and ad libs. Josh Eppard as original drummer was epic rhythmically, Travis Stevers, guitar/vocals does well to compliment the sound and crazy *** Mike Todd, now ex bassist....I miss his "D's" but oh well.

I often chose Co&Ca songs to sing along to on my 1 and 1/2 hour commute to and from work. I put my playlist on random and am always pleasantly surprised. Some of my favs to sing with are "Guns Of Summer", "Far", and "Pearl Of the Stars", on Year of the Black Rainbow. "Time Consumer", "Delerium Trigger", "Hearshot Kid Disaster", and "Junesong Provision" on Second Stage Turbine Blade. The entire In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3 album...you know what? Its just so much to name, Im getting dizzy. If you havent heard of them, yes, go check them out. Ive seen them in concert 6 times and its keeps me guessing as to how long will this ride last. Forever, I hope.
