Honestly? Why am I a troll for suggesting the band hasn't produced what they are capable of since In Keeping Secrets up until this record?
Coheed is my favorite band but damn some of the hardcore fanbase is so insecure and defensive of criticism it is kinda pathetic. I wouldn't suggest you are a troll (or asswipe) for stating your opinion, which I'd agree with you for the most part except I'd even go as far as to say even the new album doesn't touch their first 2...or 3rd for that matter. It is a step in the right direction in my opinion (mothers of men & vic the butcher are awesome) but until I hear the 2nd half it still is a far cry away from the sheer brilliance of SSTB and IKSOSE3.
