The Album is great and a great burst of energy and fusions of styles bursting out of a already great band. I agree with the reviewer but all scores set aside I really think everyone should pick up this album. It is great for going down the road and has a unique feel that is new to MCR and uncommon in modern music. Its different but that's why I love it so much. Old stuff is great but I am glad they did not just remake a previous album. They continue to press on as a band and that means changes. Some won't like but this album is the next level for MCR. They understand how music is supposed to be done.
wow I'm really surprised to see so many positive comments on here...
As much as I enjoyed the review [which was written very well by the way - haha "way"], I'm not really a big fan of this album. I've tried so hard over the past few days to like it, but there are some songs [ie. planetary, the only hope for me is you] which I can't stand listening to, and there's so much cheesy ballady crap which My Chemical Romance don't pull off very well in my opinion.
Now don't think I'm one of those people who will hate mcr before even properly listening to their music; I used to love them and they were one of my favourite bands for a few years. I wasn't expecting another Three Cheers or Black Parade, and no one wants exactly the same record twice, but there was nothing wrong with ~the old MCR~ and their music didn't need to be 'fixed'.
Though my thoughts aren't all negative; Vampire Money and Save Yourself are definitely my favourites, and they almost make up for the boring stuff.
I'm just trying so hard to like it :s hopefully it will grow on me
I'm loving this album.
I didn't GET it at first, but really enjoying it after a handful of listens.
My favorite tracks are "The Only Hope For Me Is You", "Save Yourself, I'll Hold Them Back" and "Party Poison", though I really like a few others, just not as favorite status.
Excited for whatever they make next.
