The only thing that's really "progressive" about Coheed & Cambria is the fact that their combined output has "progressed" enough to result in the release of this terrific new album.

IT'S NICE TO BE A GENIUS

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2007 at 6:02 PM

There have, of course, been many differing opinions regarding our recent Detroit's 100 Greatest Songs cover feature, to the point that some of the more uninformed ones made me blow an Internet gasket last week (well, sort of -- people should be aware that I had a big smile on...
