YMMV / Coheed and Cambria

  • Broken Base: Year of the Black Rainbow, musically and both lyrically/story wise, is either one of Coheed's best albums, or one of their worst. The elitist fan base on Cobalt And Calcium doesn't help matters,
  • Crowning Momentof Heartwarming: '2's My Favorite 1. "I embrace your defects."
    • ''Atlas'', the song Claudio wrote for his son.
  • Ear Worm: Has its own page.
  • Epic Riff: "Welcome Home."
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Nearly every top comment on any Coheed and Cambria Youtube video will be about Claudio's hair.
  • Face of the Band: Claudio Sanchez, singer/guitarist, and he also writes the comics the band's songs are based on (and thus the lyrics). His memorable physical appearance helps too.
  • Internet Backdraft: Over whether they count as Emo or not. It's best not to bring it up.
  • Listener Gender Confusion: It's very easy for newcomers to hear their music and automatically assume that their lead singer is female.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Wake Up: "I'll do anything for you, kill anyone for you..."
    • "Number City" is a danceable ska-influenced song about Sirius' wife dying in a car crash.
  • Narm: The Word Salad Lyrics can't be taken seriously every moment.
    • Also because it's easy to mishear the lyrics, even causing mild Memetic Mutation in the fandom with some common or hilarious ones (Most famously "Barking Apple of Doom" in Welcome Home and "Should the Iron Negro Hungry" in In Keeping Secrets of a Silent Earth: 3.)
    • There's also the fact that the Writing Writer is being told to kill off characters by a talking bicycle.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The main riff for "Welcome Home" has often been compared to "Kashmire" by Led Zeppelin.
  • Tear Jerker: Many:
    • The song "Time Consumer", when you realize it's about two parents being forced to kill their children.
    • During Coheed and Cambria's rampage throughout the ship Gloria vel Vessa, they encounter numerous soldiers who plead for their lives, mentioning that they have families and kids to take care of. Considering what General Mayo Deftinwulf forced Coh and Cam to do, this is not a good idea.
    • The dialogue between Sirius Amory and The Allmother at the end of "The Dark Side of Me" Allmother: "I am not capable of comprehending human rationale. Sirius, is this what love is?" (Dramatic Pause) Sirius: "Yes."
    • The climax of the song "Gravity's Union" is extraordinarily heartbreaking. Sirius believes that the doctors chose to save him and not his pregnant wife (Therefore "Let the wrong one in")
