I've listened to The Cure before, but not too extensively. I do like what I am familiar with from them, though.
I really enjoyed this song! It was a bit short, but that's not really too big a deal. I like how clear the vocals are and how clearly you can hear each word, which isn't something you really see all that often in rock music. Vocals typically blend a bit with the other instruments. Overall, I really like this song. I can't really think of much to say about it.
As for Coheed, if you're looking to pick up an album from them, I'd recommend The Afterman: Ascension. I think it's their best work that yet, or at least that I've heard (they released a second part to Ascension this month, but I haven't been able to pick it up yet) by a long shot, at least in my opinion.
If you do go to pick it up, the packaging is just a bit odd. Just figure'd I'd let you know.
Here's a track from that album particularly. This is one of my favorites from the album.... if you want to check out more from this album, I'd recommend Vic the Butcher or Holly Wood the Cracked.
The first season may seem like too much of an X-files ripoff, but give it some time. Just in case you decide to view it, the essential episodes for viewing in the first season are these, the rest range from good but unimportant to bad.
4. The Arrival
7. In Which We Meet Mr. Jones
8. The Equation
13. The Transformation
15. Inner Child
17. Bad Dreams
19. The Road Not Taken
20. There's More Than One Of Everything
Not bad, not bad at all. I can definitely see how Silversun got a bit of their sound here.
Now, as for the song itself, I really enjoyed it. I freaking love the instrumentation here, it's definitely very good. I'm not too crazy for the vocals, they can be a bit monotonous at times, and can also sound more like yelling than singing at times, but that's not too big a deal. Any irritation that I got from the vocals is overshadowed by the song itself. My favorite parts are the little interludes between sections (like at 1:20-ish) and the bridge starting at 2:35.
Now, it's my turn, I suppose?

It's kinda ironic, because I said my only real peeve with Sonic Youth was the vocals, and the vocals are usually what bothers people about Coheed and Cambria. And, come to think of it, Silversun Pickups.
