Afterman Ranked

I'm really enjoying Descension at the moment. It may end of rrrwearing off rof me in a few weeks once my hyped fanboy-ness rrsubsides, but rfor now rI'm just basking in the unabashed joy rrCoheed give me.
1Coheed and Cambria
Gravity's Un ion

I liked Gravity's to a modern take on "The Crowing", beginning with a simple
verse-chorus structure before branching into an elongated bridge and coming to a
denouement with an ending which is clearly going to be a favorite at live shows.
Gravity's may not quite reach the zeniths of The Crowing, but it comes pretty
damn close.
2Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry the Defiant

Claudio was clearly excited over this song, releasing an acoustic version nearly a
year ago before even announcing the Afterman double-album concept, and now that
the studio-version is available, his excitement is well-understood. This is classic
Coheed, with one of the strongest choruses they've ever written. Also, since when
did Josh become a good drummer? He really kills it on this song.
3Key Entity Extraction III: Vic the Butcher

The only really gripe I have with this song is that it ends awfully quickly, with only
about four minutes of the 5:48 taking up the actual body of the song. HANG YOUR
4Key Entity Extraction I: Domino the Destitute

I wasn't completely sold on this one when I first heard it, but it's grown on me
considerably with time. With Domino, Coheed may have finally found a song to usurp
"Welcome Home" as the ultimate concert encore.
5Iron Fist

I'm a sucker for the acoustic guitar in this song, and its emo-ness.
6Key Entity Extraction IV: Evagria the Faithful

I'm impressed at the manifold of dynamics Coheed managed to incorporate into this
song considering the lack of distortion.
7Number City

This is definitely one of the most interesting songs Coheed have put to record. It's
got funky chili-peppers rhythm work and megaman noises and fucking trumpets
while still incorporating some Ten-Speed-esque pop catchiness.
8Goodnight, Fair Lady

Coheed write damn good pop songs.
9The Afterman

Another song that I really wish went on for a little longer, it's pure bliss while it lasts.
10Dark Side of Me

I'm not a huge fan of the way the title of the song is sung at the end of the chorus,
but that moment withstanding, Dark Side of Me has one of the most emotionally
powerful choruses Coheed have written.
112's My Favorite 1

This is vintage Coheed...with some piano and Dear Hunterish parts. Would likely be
higher if it weren't so brief (the actual song is barely three-minutes in length)
12Key Entity Extraction II: Holly Wood the Cracked

This is easily my least favorite of the key entity tracks, but it's definitely grown on
me since I first heard it. The bridge is classic Coheed.
13Away We Go

Perhaps the most saccharine song in Coheed's discography.
14The Hard Sell

This one has a definitely NWFT-esque cock-rock aesthetic in its verse.
15Mothers of Men

The weakest song that isn't an introduction/outro for me; solid but just feels a bit

Does a great job of setting up Descension.

Lyrics are quite cheesy but I dunno I don't mind them as much coming from Claudio.
18The Hollow
