The first real track of this album is over eight minutes long. The last two are over nine. Each track is done so well you don't even realize that this is an album of epic songs.
If you take the modern sound of psuedo-progressive hardcore and match it with two parts of Geddy Lee-esque vocals you have Coheed and Cambria. Of course, that's only in the most simplistic terms. An album like this, filled with competent singing and legend-like song writing deserves so much more than a cheap reference to Rush.
This is not an album of "fall down" guitar players and spastic vocal screaming - more like a wide-screen classic, with surround sound, and free drinks. Everything is expansive but not in a cheap, "studio tricks", kind of way. Production is tight, but not so tight it sounds like plastic. Everything breathes and has life, taking a huge amount of clever lyrics and big guitars in the process. In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 is top notch; catchy and progressive, yet holding enough integrity to make it all worthwhile.
