Good Apollo Tonight I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness was Coheed and Cambria’s third studio album and saw a huge increase in the band’s popularity when it was released back in 2005.

The album contains a few of the band’s best known songs, such as the grand `Welcome Home,’ the catchy `The Suffering,’ and of course `Ten Speed (Of God’s Blood and Burial)’

With this album; the band effortlessly mixes classic rock and prog influences into their music with modern attitudes and delivery, creating an eclectic, complex and melodic record full of surprise twists and turns. From quieter moments like `Always & Never,’ and `Wake Up,’ to loud and bombastic moments like the three aforementioned singles, the album contains a wealth of ideas.

Highlight moments include the amazing almost-title track `Apollo I: The Writing Writer,’ which is still one of my favourtie Coheed songs till this day, and the grand and bluesy guitar solo showcase `The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut.’

No fan of the band should be without this album, it stands up remarkably well today with an excellent production job, amazing musicianship and some of the band’s finest ever songwriting in addition to the penultimate lyrical part of the band’s multiple concept album, and cross platform media series The Amory Wars.

If you are new to the band, this is a fine album to make your first Coheed purchase.
