Year Of The Black Rainbow sounded like a pile of dicks writhing in gelatin.
This is not bad.

Damn, does anyone like that record? At all? As time passes I almost never see anything even remotely positive spoken about it and it seems hated universally but at the time it seemed to be relatively well received upon release. I believe it was even reviewed decently on this site. I liked a few tracks off of it (When Skeletons Live, In The Flame of Error) but yeah a few enjoyable tracks doesn't really make a good album. I firmly believe they have gotten progressively worse with every album, but none of them are really terrible. Hopefully this one breaks that trend, but it can't be easy when your debut album is perfect and sophomore release is damn near perfect.
YotBR is a good album buried under a terrible production job. The gloomy industrial sound works on a couple of tracks ("Here We Are Juggernaut", "Far") but it kills most of the rest of them.

On the bright side, this new song sounds kickass.

I actually liked Year of the Black Rainbow, some songs felt as though they were fillers. Honestly they couldn't release an album I don't like though. I felt that Chris Penne wasn't a great fit for Coheed, he is a great drummer, but they made their sound fit his style, which doesn't work.
I totally agree that Chris wasn't a great fit. He's an amazing drummer, just not a Coheed drummer. I loved YotBR, but the production did suck. I still enjoy the record for what it is, but as far as Coheed is concerned it was their weakest effort.

YotBR was one of my favourite Coheed albums. I think 'Far' is the best song Coheed has created.

I couldnt agree more. i do like about 6 songs on that album but reznor and his production buddy really made it unbearable to listen to.
Trent Reznor had nothing to do with it. Atticus Ross (Reznor's "production buddy"), and Joe Barresi produced it.

And I wouldn't even say YOTBR's awful production was Ross' fault. He's a good producer. Barresi shouldn't be let anywhere near a production board any again though. Fair to Midland's Arrows and Anchors has the exact same production problems that YOTBR has, and that was solely produced by Barresi.
