Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow (often shortened to No World For Tomorrow), is the fourth studio album by American progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria, released on October 23, 2007.

The Top Ten

1 III - The End Complete

Definitely one of the pinnacles of the band's career as a whole, starting out in a decent way, but constantly building higher until it essentially explodes. The point where Claudio's vocals begin to distort and has him start screaming is chilling, and overall shows the best use of somewhat harsh vocals that the band has ever done. The change of tone throughout makes this a thoroughly engaging listen. - kempokid

2 No World for Tomorrow

As always with Coheed and Cambria, the opening song is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the entire album. the vocals are extremely good, and the entire song is just an awesome anthem all around. The chanting at the start of the chorus is particularly noteworthy. - kempokid

3 V - On the Brink

I hear some similarities to other bands in this song, such as early Dear Hunter for the first couple of minutes, and a crescendo that is very reminiscent of Pink Floyd's In the Flesh. Despite these similarities, the song definitely still stands out as one of the best, as all of these don't really detract from the quality. The guitar solo after the admittedly obnoxious "hail" section is the absolute highlight of the entire album for me, and definitely a great way to finish the Amory Wars saga as a whole. - kempokid

4 Mother Superior

While Claudio's inflections on particular words can get somewhat annoying at parts, this is overall a great song, with some of the best vocals on the album, combined with some excellent synths to give this song a lot of power. - kempokid

5 The Running Free

While I find this band to have its best songs often be the more prog inspired ones, I still thoroughly enjoy songs like this, that have a much greater focus on simply sounding fun, while still maintaining superb musicianship. This song is definitely one of my favourites on the album despite the relative simplicity of it. - kempokid

6 II - Radio Bye Bye

A great energetic song that properly starts off the End suite in great fashion. While the song is comprised of mainly one riff, I do find it to be good enough to warrant being used to the extent that it was, and the break in the middle where it uses excellent vocal layering stops it from approaching monotony. - kempokid

7 IV - The Road and the Damned

A very emotional performance all around, and while I don't find anything in particular that I find memorable, there is no denying the high quality of the song. - kempokid

8 The Hound (Of Blood and Rank)

A decent song that has a really nice guitar solo in it, along with a catchy chorus and a good amount of energy. The outro with the backing vocals is also really good. - kempokid

9 Justice In Murder

There isn't really too much to say about this track, the riffs are extremely good, and the vocal melodies are at their usual high quality, making for a song that while not blowing me away, still sounds greatly enjoyable. - kempokid

10 Feathers

Another one of the more straightforward songs by the band, but do find this one to be one of their better ones in that regard. Despite the overt pop nature of the chorus, I can't deny that I do find it greatly enjoyable. - kempokid
