5.0 out of 5 stars Variety. It's what made The Beatles so great. November 22, 2010
By D Town
Format:Audio CD
My Chemical Romance (MCR) is definitely my favorite current (still together and making albums) band. While not a long time follower I checked them out after hearing Welcome to the Black Parade on the radio in a diner while on vacation. I liked the song so much I remembered some of the lyrics to look it up when I got home. Needless to say I love The Black Parade and Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. I do like a few songs off of their first LP, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, but it wouldn't have hooked me like their other two albums.

Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys is MCR's first album in four years and has been highly anticipated by fans. I can honestly say I like the direction that they're headed here with a lighter tone than the past three albums. Those are excellent albums and I still love listening to them but I'm really glad they've changed things up some. I'll go through the track listing and give my personal opinion of each track. Note that I'm no critic and these are just my own feelings on each of the songs. Tracks 1, 7 and 14 are Dr. Death Defying talking so no ratings for those.

Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) - 3/5 stars. The first single and the song that most of us heard first as well. It's a pretty straight forward rocker with a chorus that just begs to be sung along with. I wasn't crazy about it at first but it's grown on me a little.

Bulletproof Heart - 5/5 stars. A superb track that I loved the first time I heard it. I wouldn't call it a power ballad but it's not far off. Carries a fantastic chorus that really showcases Gerard Way's voice.

Sing - 4/5 stars. Another song I that has grown on me since my first listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars MCR creates another masterpiece November 22, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
One thing you can't say about My Chemical Romance is they stick with a successful song form, they keep innovating. The first couple songs are a throwback to classic MCR from their first two albums. The next few are an amazing mix of rock and synth, like an 80's powerhouse, but modern. They do a killer job of implementing synth, I dont traditionally enjoy synth in rock music, but they pull it off beautifully.

After 3 or 4 songs its back to more rock music and then they end it with a killer rock anthem. This album continues their all killer no filler tradition. If you like MCR or rock buy this immediately.

4.0 out of 5 stars comfortable in their own skin January 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i have read reviews of those that love love love this ,calling it a masterpiece ,and other that trash it saying they where long time fans and this is a piece of poop...I am 47 yrs old ,why is this important , well i have listened &gone to see to more rock,country, rap ,punk and jazz ,and blues artist then i can remember ...I like this band ,that said this is not a masterpiece ,but a band that is comfortable in their own skin now and flexing great musical muscle..."Black parade" was a huge leap forward for them & this is a solid follow up ..much in the same vain that "Joshua tree " brought us U2 we know now or like prayer intro'd us to the big voice we now think of as Madonna....I like all the songs on this album ,the 1st 10 r super ,i personally believe its about 3 or 4 songs to long...it could of been a really really tight album leaving us wanting more ...that said the remaining songs are still really good and this is a minor crit of the work ...if your a fan of good solid rock music ,buy this if your a mcr fan and looking for the"old mcr" go away ...now ,,No real artist of any kind stays the same or all they are doing is variations of the same and that's boring..

3.0 out of 5 stars Killjoy, Indeed. September 5, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I've heard people make the argument that MCR's previous albums all embrace different styles. Why, then, should fans dislike a new album which similarly embraces a new style?

The ocean between Danger Days dwarfs the creek between Three Cheers and Black Parade. Danger Days feels generic. Gone is the edgy atmosphere that permeated both albums. Instead, we get ballads, punk, and arena rock. In fact, Danger Days reminds me of what happened to Linkin Park (regardless of what you think of them). They forgot about the signature style that brought them to prominence and have subsequently lost any relevance. The comparison is even more apt because both bands are known for emo-ish lyrics and a younger fanbase dealing with issues like break-ups,suicide, or both at once. Music critics love to lampoon this sub-genre- perhaps both bands felt pressure and desire to step into more respectable musical climates. Well, fine, sing about ponies if you want to, but don't abandon your amazing sound!

That's not to say all of the cuts are bad. Na Na Na, Bulletproof Heart, and The Only Hope for Me Is You all feel like MCR- especially the former. And the rest are ok- they might be good tracks on a more boring band's album. U2 maybe? But not for MCR. What's worse, most of the tracks don't showcase Gerard Way's unique vocals. His intonation is the lifeblood of the band, and the production of the album largely obscures it.

I know the album has largely been a success, but here's hoping MCR returns to more familiar territory in the future.
