My second favorite off the new album. And this is my favorite album since IKSSE.

I am very pleased.

bobcatbob18 10/16/12 12:44 PM

The only song on the album I'm not crazy about, though I do appreciate it's aggression.

FaceLixeMurder 10/16/12 12:57 PM

Worst song on the album but still not terrible

pray_tell 10/16/12 01:39 PM

This is song is sooooo good. Drums are killer and the vocal hooks slay.

billy_yo 10/16/12 01:40 PM

My favorite song on this album. I love this album

collinsurvive 10/16/12 02:11 PM

Stoked for the next one, this album does no wrong in my eyes.

Bryan Mac 10/16/12 02:27 PM

Worst song on this album. Wish they would finish putting up all of these videos.

RyanGarner 10/16/12 02:58 PM

The only thing I don't like about this song is the guitar at the very beginning, it's definitely a grower.

Haha I loooove that guitar line. Judging by the comments, this song is pretty polarizing among CoCa fans, which doesn't necessarily surprise me. I think if you were an early fan who loved "Al The Killer" this song is for you. If you're a later fan, and more into their epic sound I think, then it is definitely a grower. Maybe I'm wrong about that though.

I love the "best song/worst song" comments. Honestly, it's one of my favorites on the album. I totally agree - immediately thought of "Al the Killer" when I heard this song.

SO happy with this album.

i wasn't sure about the almost nu-metal sounding riff... but coheed can pull it off, its grown on me a lot. also makes sense of course since they have songs like al the killer. the "shes a few cards short of a full deck..." part is so good and the "poor hollywood" part too. always glad to see coheed doing something different that turns out great!

drewinseries 10/16/12 06:24 PM

This track is awesome. One of the most fun tracks since Al The Killer

Most people I know don't like it because of how awful and cheesy the lyrics are. Al The Killer rules.

dohare 10/16/12 06:29 PM

this track grew on me, i can now get into it. that fan is going to be so excited now that she knows the songs about her.

SteveD 10/16/12 08:48 PM

Hands down my favorite song off the new album.... then Vic The butcher

HeavenResign 10/16/12 09:12 PM

Least favorite song on the album...though 1:15 - 1:30 (of the actual song, not this vid haha) iis full of beautiful pop goodness.

i love both coheed's. if the song stayed with that same vibe (dark/korn sounding), i probably wouldn't have liked it. I love that it suddenly gets poppy.

IMO
IKSSE3 > SSTB > GA1 > Afterman > NWFT > BR

Oh I love the song now and the guitar line is great once the bass and drums kick in, it's just the very very beginning that doesn't stand out to me.

Jake Jenkins 10/17/12 12:04 AM

this song is the closest to their past two albums on the album, which is why its so polarizing. while it may be along that style, it's a lot better than most songs form the NWFT/YOBTR era.

I kinda see this album as a 'best of' without being a best of. It takes inspiration from all the best Coheed tracks. Hollywood is very much this album's Al The Killer. Great song.

Lol, no.

nickthehick2 10/17/12 07:43 AM

I wish I could have seen the videos. I've almost overplayed this record now, it is too short. I have a feeling that Descension is gonna blow Ascension out of the water though. Iron Fist is an amazing song.

CoheedForever 10/17/12 07:49 AM

This song is great and the album just keeps getting better with every listen.

I actually enjoyed a lot of NWFT, and I think there are a ton of songs off those two albums that are better than this. Mother Superior is one of their best ever. The End Complete III is amazing, The Hound, Gravemakers, Feathers, The Broken, Black Rainbow, Juggernaut...all better in my opinion.

I feel like the hate for NWFT comes from only a few bad tracks. Specifically, The Running Free, Justice in Murder, and The Road and the Damned. Those songs were some of Coheed's worst, and I feel like it taints people's opinions of some of the other songs.

In a way, I think the last part is true. NWFT, Feathers, Hound, TEC III are on the same level as other "best" Coheed songs. It's just that some songs that feel more like b-sides made the cut somehow (ala The Running Free or Justice in Murder).

bad song by bad band

next
