Wow, I haven't heard this style of music played since the Mars Volta show I saw a year or so back. Since I've received this album, it hasn't left my CD player. It has a refreshingly new sound to it incorporating rock and roll numbers ("redlightexitsignpastiche") with modern, almost, jazzy breakdowns.

Wow, I haven't heard this style of music played since the Mars Volta show I saw a year or so back. Since I've received this album, it hasn't left my CD player. It has a refreshingly new sound to it incorporating rock and roll numbers ("redlightexitsignpastiche") with modern, almost, jazzy breakdowns only to leap even further into the experimental realm that is sure to garner these guys much attention.

My favourite track is "Under Ihrem Sitz," but each song has such a unique quality and level of diversity to it. The vocals alone command an enormous amount of attention not only for their range, which goes from from full out screaming to soft whispering, but for the way in which they lead listeners through this ambitious album. While the lyrics may not make sense, the delivery is incredible, and the way it was recorded gives them an even more distorted sound that just adds to it.

Obviously skilled musicians, the fast pace their instruments are played leave you wondering about their current condition. You can expect to hear more from this young Canadian group.

rush fucking sucks, closer to the heart is one of the worst songs ever recorded, put them in the used bin right next to fucking styx, you fucking pussies.

Scores for retards being entertaning, and for awsome punkcore kids that think coheed = rush. Fuck that. Lifeson, Peart, and Lee didnt make those ablums to be compaired to shit.

Coheed could only dream of being as good as Rush. Because some fuck wrote "something about Rush and Coheed" in Alternative Press doesn't mean that their are ANY similarities(good ones at least).

Score is for prog-rock. Coheed is the new Rush. Mars Volta is the new Pink Floyd. And this shit sells, so that means we get to look forward to a plethora of clone bands that are half the talent and all the shtik. Booo!

Sounds just like the Mars Volta with less instrumentation. Decent I guess.

The New Science is currently #8 in Canada on National college and community radio LOUD Charts!

Everyone should call their favourite punk/alternative radio show and request a tune from the album!

My favourite song is Deportation and Return.
