"Let me start off by mentioning that this is my first taste of Coheed and Cambria. I've heard a lot of buzz about the band and these "Neverender" shows. This dvd confirms all accounts that this band just flat out rocks!!! The camera work is the best I have seen, and I have been collecting concerts on vhs and dvd for about 20 years. The musicians in this band are captured performing four conceptual albums in their entirety. These four guys play this incredible music technically brilliant and with emotion and confidence. The crowd knows every word and they both feed off each other to create a musical performance that never gets stale.
Even though there is a central theme going on in each of these four performances, each album seems different in its context and "angst". When finishing the first dvd I have to say that "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth" just blew me away. The performance was top-notch and the music was unbelievable. On the second disc it just keeps getting better. They add another percussionist for the 3'rd album, as well as 2 female background vocalists. The last song on the album finishes with guitar mania between Sanchez and Stever that is jaw-dropping. What a finish!!! On the last performance they are back to the 4-piece(There is a pretty decent keyboard player throughout each performance as well) with the 2 background vocalists. This performance is another display of just how musically tight and confident these guys are. Another brilliant performance to compliment another great piece of work.
And as if this dvd set could not get any better, my man WARREN HAYNES comes out to do 2 songs on the encore. If Haynes will step out with these guys than that seals the deal for me. Coheed and Cambria are not a fading light in the rock world, but a burning star that shed its light through my eyes and ears through this amazing, amazing performance.
All in all, I can't say enough about this dvd set. If you are a fan of rock music, this is definitely for you. The 2 guitar players are about the best I have seen in a long , long time. The bass player plays the strings off of his Fender bass. The drummer is a machine who never stops and never seems winded. IN MY COLLECTION OF CONCERTS, THIS ONE HAS RISEN TO THE TOP OF THE PILE. IT IS JUST AN INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE IN BOTH VISUAL AND SOUND!!"
More Coheed and more of Claudio's hair than you can handle!

"What other band do you know has a concert where they perform all their songs from all their albums? Although in only a few major cities, Neverender was, in my opinion, THE concert of 2008, and a great opportunity to watch your favorite Coheed songs live, especially those that they rarely perform. It was also a good opportunity for the new drummer, Chris Pennie, to learn some of the older stuff. The DVD is two discs, with two nights each on them.
NIGHT 1: The Second Stage Turbine Blade, their first album. Although Claudio cannot get as high as he once could (maybe if you lay off those cigarettes...) he still can do the classics well. The hidden track, "IRO-Bot," is performed as well.
NIGHT 2: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. Some of the best songs are on there, and they also do a great job here as well, with a killer performance on "Al the Killer." And for their encore they do "2113," but the DVD cuts off the IRO-bot reprise at the end, due to an editing error. The CD includes it, however.
NIGHT 3: Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV Volume 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness. What a mouthful. This time, Coheed performs with a second percussionist, and the dreaded but pretty female backup singers. I really don't like them, but the performance is still quite amazing, with one of their longest performances of "The Final Cut" ever, including a drum solo. And for their encore, they do a medley of "Everything Evil," a cover of the Maiden classic "The Trooper," and "Devil in Jersey City." There also is a little jam after The Suffering.
NIGHT 4: GAIBSIVV2: No World for Tomorrow:. Another solid performance of their newest work, but it kind of ticks me off because they kind of go overboard on the backup singers, with them sometimes singing whole verses. Laziness, Claudio, laziness. At the end, they have a special guest, Warren Haynes from Gov't Mule and The Allman Brothers Band. They cover the Bob Dylan song, "I Shall Be Released," as well as another performance of "Welcome Home."
If you love Coheed, this a must.
Great for New Fans

"I picked up this two-DVD set and have been really enjoying it. It's perfect for a new fan of C&C because it includes live versions of just about their entire body of work for a very cheap price. The video quality is fantastic and the performances are great. Highly recommended!"
