They took four years to concept and write Danger Days and it ended up being everyone's least favorite record.
It's not about how long you're in the studio but about how naturally the song writing process becomes. Some bands just seem to be able to write quality tunes at a more steady rate than other bands. I just hope they're not trying to over hype this next record.
everyone's least favorite? i liked Danger Days more than Black Parade :)
i really like all of their albums though, so even though Black Parade is my least favorite, i still love it. they're a solid band.
