“The Afterman: Ascension”

Closer to the greatness that was Good Apollo Volume 1, Coheed’s story continues, but this time it is a sort of “prequel”.  Rather than releasing a true double disc, Ascension was followed by Descension a few months later and both 9-song pairs do a decent job of getting old school C+C fans excited.  the return of heavy prog influences and longer song lengths plays into Claudio’s strengths.  Let’s just hope we actually get to see the movie soon, since it is hard for me to actually follow the story with such great music playing.
