Thursday the 14th: Coheed and Cambria - Gravemakers and Gunslingers

     Let's pretend it's actually Thursday for a few minutes, so that we can all imagine it's Throwback Thursday time! I enjoyed last year's The Color Before the Sun, but any Loud Noises reader worth their salt will know that I'm a fan of older Coheed and Cambria, stuff, so let's have some of that for your weekly dose of retro.

     Set your chosen pop culture time travel device to 2007, because we're headed back to Coheed's fourth LP Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV: Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow. The title might seem a little long, and a little silly if you're not verse in the band's Amory Wars mythos, but this record is chock full of prime Coheed power-prog-pop. Your Throwback Thursday song "Gravemakers and Gunslingers" is no exception: it stands well enough on its own as a rocking litte number, nevermind its place in the grand story. If my last post from Abhorrent annoyed your neighbours, this one's got enough bounce that they might just forgive you. Worth a shot, right?
