This is a good song. Some nice heaviness in the instrumentals, and less predictable than most of what we've heard in recent years. There are some questionable choices though, like the vox in the verses.

How is this the same band that made In Keeping Secrets? This is so generic and meh. Reminds me of Paralyzer by Finger Eleven.

I mean Coheed will always be my favorite band because nothing can replace their first 3 albums but I haven't loved anything from them since Ascension. The Hard Sell was the beginning of the end for these guys but thankfully they still put on incredible live shows.

They need Mic Todd back.

The Hard Sell is buns but they've had plenty of great songs since it so who cares

Lol obviously they'd never bring him back. I'm just speaking that musically the 4 of them had something great but we only got 3 albums out of it. I just wish I could enjoy the entirety of their new albums instead of just picking out the songs that are pretty good and ignoring the rest. I don't need wild time signatures and all but I feel like a lot of the creativity is gone.

I've been saying for a long time I'd rather have another Prize Fighter Inferno album than more CoCa stuff. Or like Claudio acoustic folk. Just not this diluted version of a once great band.

I can respect that, WIE. I don't know too many bands that were/are still making great music 20 years after their inception but it sucks when it's your favorite band like it is in my case. This is like a watered down diet Coheed that we've been getting since 2013.

It's definitely catchy in that usual Coheed fashion, and think the visuals are fine. Though I will agree they did lose some of their creativity as well–but I would say they need more from Travis because his riffing added a lot to their older work; Josh and Zach deliver as always.

The fact that I thought it was a fairly strong single is emblematic of just how little I've come to expect from my once favorite band.

Finally checked out the song so I can finally comment on something other than just the AWFUL art. This sucked. Honestly surprised because Vax 1 was a jam. This was annoying and corny. What the hell is he doing with the shouty vocals in the verses???

idk besides the verses it sounds like Coheed to me... Claudio sounds good on the chorus and bridge. sure it's a tad simple, but it's not bad. the verses aren't great though. I feel like the songwriting has been on the downslope for a long time so this type of song shouldn't be out of nowhere for these guys.

Pretty by the numbers CoCa, but nothing special. I think I'm in the minority that loved Decension, but haven't been stoked about anything following that.

I dug the production on this. Just a standard pop rock structure though. Hopefully there are some prog epics on this new album.

Maybe I'm just a Coheed super fan but I really dug this track. I'm glad their lead single wasn't another Welcome Home clone for once. I like to think I can be impartial when it comes to them (Color Before the Sun was largely cheeks) and I've really been digging their direction with this Vaxis saga so far. Yeah, their best years are likely behind them but how many bands put out their best stuff 20 years into their career? These guys are aging pretty gracefully and still finding new little niches to hit, which is impressive in and of itself.

The central riff here is such a banger and while there are some interesting production choices (in a bad way), it's a really fun radio rock banger. Can't wait for the new album, Unheavenly Creatures ruled

I miss the awesome vocal layering and backing vocals they used to do all the time. I think Mothers of Men is the last time they really did it and nothing is making these guys sound unique anymore outside of Claudio's voice. Hopefully this is the worst song on the album 'cause it's maybe a 6/10.

I feel like every time a Coheed single comes out it gets utterly shit on and then their record gets good ratings lol. I’ve never understood the love for this band honestly. Only thing enjoyable for me is In Keeping

This is solidly average

As someone who likes many eras of Coheed, I found this a refreshing change. The production on this slays. Their last record was quite good but I felt that eventually they'd need a shake up. Here is that left turn and it's typically strong.

I'm scared to listen to this. I've been disappointed since Year of the Black Rainbow. So....11 years? A few bops on Ascension/Descension and their last, but on the whole they've lost their edge and calmed down a bit but I'm just not a fan of the simplification of their sound.

Sound like a Fall Out Boy song from the time period where they were pretending that they weren't going full pop sell out, and then they did. Next album about to be 90% synth with 7th grade band drums during the chorus.

"Starting to worry that the old albums had bad lyrics too disguised as a scifi adventure"

Idk Storm, "slowly discarded were the remains of his lonely youth" and the entire intro of The Light and the Glass are pretty great lyrics to me. I always loved the imagery Claudio invoked with his words and how they were more poetic without being outright cryptic shit (looking at The Mars Volta).

Also, Coheed just thanked Octane on XM/Sirius for making this song part of their adds list, which means Coheed is officially Octane-core now.
