Fantastic review Ian! I still need to give this a few more spins.

Well written review. I agreed with most of what you said about the album. I enjoy the new direction they've taken, but I think the goal is to listen to it as something new. Anyone who wants another three cheers or i brought you my bullets will probably come away feeling disappointed, but I think that this album will propel them farther into the mainstream than they already are.

I love when this band is praised and not hated on. I mean, I'm not a huge fan...but it's cool to see someone appreciate them, as they have made some music I thoroughly enjoy.
This album sounds like a good listen I guess...I'll check it out.

Eight miles high and falling fast
I agree almost completely, very well written review.
if you could somehow sum-up the whole review into few words, then it would definitely be "hit or miss". some people might not like it, but fans wwho enjoyed esp. their two previous albums certainly will.
the part which I disagree with, is the one when you say it's overproduced. personally, I think all the synths and sound effects fit perfectly, esp. when you take into consideration the whole concept.
it's rock'n'roll album of the year for me

I'm a Mark, who thought I was a Tom
Definitely going to check this out. Really wish Bob would come back though, not the same without him.

The Kids From Yesterday seems so boring compared to the rest of the album.

Your girl's favorite pizza boy
Come on, how can you not like the intro to Vampire Money? It's a fuggin Ballroom Blitz homage!

When I die, rap dies; Destiny Bond.
I'm not really sure what I think about this album yet. It'll need time to sink in.

One of my favourite moments on the album. It's hilarious.

Fun album, the band introduction in "Vampire Money" made me chuckle the first time I heard it

wes craven with x cravings.
That totally flew over my head. Adds a bit of awesomeness, but still kind of...odd.

Open up a little happiness today.
I'm very excited to pick this up.

Fantastic album, but your review lacks something...oh I know! you forgot to mention "DESTROYA" and "Save Yourself, I'll Hold Them Back", which I think are incredible, and among the best songs in the album. Listening to DESTROYA you just wanna stop your feet and go wild, like animal wild. Save Yourself is plain cool. The lyrics are incredible, reminiscent of the old MCR stuff.
I think the album is amazing, the only flaw is that they seemed to scrap some really cool stuff, judging by the Mad Gear and the Missile Kid EP. The songs seem to drip sexuality from evey pore... ;)
Also, I've rediscovered Mr Way's voice with this album
People, keep listening to it, you'll love it.
