As I said in the CW thread, I'm not the biggest fan of these two. They're not bad songs but they're easily among the weakest stuff they've ever put out. They have everything they said was wrong with these songs unlike the first two. Still glad they put them out though, but I'm expecting much more from the remaining stuff . I'll be mega happy if this is the weakest it gets.
These two new songs are fantastic, so were the first two. Black Parade will always be their magnum opus, never to be topped.
Bullets really is a god-awful record. Incredibly shitty production and Gerard's voice was NOWHERE NEAR what it is now. But I understand it because it was a band finding their sound, so I don't really fault them for it.
biggest crazy of all. Parade is nowhere near the first two imo and it's still a top 10 record for me. Gerard's voice wasn't as cleanly produced as it is now but his performance on that album is incredible. Easily the most passionate work he's done, with almost no production on it, mostly done one or two takes. His voice fucking soars on shit like "Drowning Lessons" and the ending of "Early Sunsets Over Monroeville" is one of my favourite things he's ever done vocally. and they had a sound on that album that was entirely their own, nothing else sounds like that album.
Danger Days is their best album. The band had a brilliant concept and executed it flawlessly.
New songs are great as well - loving Ambulance. Gonna be listening to them for a while!!
EDIT: Ok I wanted to buy these songs but the 7" singles are £7.99 each. Thats 12.80 dollars! Are the records that expensive in America??? Are MCR ripping people off???
It would cost me £40/$64 for 10 songs!! Could just go DD but I've never been keen on downloading.
Will MCR be pressing an actual 'Conventional Weapons' album? Have they said anything about that?
Idk, I think the main point of them doing them as individual vinyls are to keep it as separate songs so it isn't viewed as an actual album. They had a set you could get for like 50 which I got but that's sold out now. They may end up putting a cd out after seeing as a lot of people want one but I'm not sure. I think they're just doing a limited number of vinyl and then going with digital downloads for the rest though..
I love all their albums but its fair for people to like some more than others. A lot of it has to do with when people got into the band and what they like. I mean I personally don't hate bullets but I think I have told you before in another thread it just is not my favorite of their material. Its not crazy its just enjoying different things about this band. For the most part I agree with you about most MCR stuff cause I find them to be a good band I just like some of their albums more than others which I am obviously not the only one that feels that way. There are probably people out there who think Bullets is best and some who think Danger Days is so its all a matter of opinion.
I agree with people who find danger days best, people who find bullets best, people who find three cheers best, and people who find black parade best cause they are opinions from fans who support the band. I personally find black parade my favorite.
Yeah, I get all that, I just find your opinions crazy man! CRAZY!
I just want you to know that I am so thankful that you exist/ comment and show support on every MCR post ever. They're my favorite and I love seeing someone appreciating Bullets for what it is. You're my hero, SpyKi, doing god's work.
Haha, I just like to take any opportunity I can to express how underrated I think that album is.
