Blue Cathedral is the third studio album by Comets on Fire. It was released in 2004 on the Sub Pop label. Its sound is a mix of psychedelic and noise rock.

In an interview, Comets on Fire echoplex and electronics player Noel von Harmonson stated that the album cover art for Blue Cathedral was a photograph of an elephant that suffered from a disease causing a lack of pigment in some areas of its skin.[3] In 2007 the album was performed live in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow's Parties-curated Don't Look Back series.
