My Top 15 Albums of 2013, #11 – Coheed and Cambria – The Afterman: Decension

11. Coheed and Cambria – The Afterman: Decension

cover39

The second installment in ‘The Afterman’ double album went in a vastly different direction to the brother album, as well as all predecessors. There seems to be a lot of experimentation and whilst there are a plentiful of acoustic numbers, the ferocity of “Sentry”, the Floyd-esque funk of “The Hard Sell” and just the absolute grandeur of “Gravity’s Union” are strong contenders to why it may be better than it’s slightly older brother. It’s definitely not as heavy, nor instantly memorable as ‘Ascension’ but it takes time to get these songs to tap into you. A little to experimental, or slow, perhaps to be Coheed‘s best album but it’ll definitely be an unpopular favourite among the tighter cult fans.
