Morning Cup o’ Music

Claudio Sanchez is a God in my opinion. I love every song that the man has made. I especially love it when a good producer hooks up with the guy to get him to make things that are out of his range. That’s where today comes in.

There are fans of Coheed & Cambria that dislike their latest album Year of the Black Rainbow just for that reason. The album is distinctive in its sound, which is more dark and mechanical than any of the group’s other works. The track for today, “Pearl of the Stars” is one song that stands out to me as a severe departure from the usual Coheed & Cambria formula. Not only do you have Claudio singing in a much deeper register than he’s known for, but you also have more classical instruments than I’ve ever heard in their works.

Give it a listen and let me know what y’all think.
