Editorial Reviews

Explicit Version includes DVD. The Black Parade, My Chemical Romance's follow-up to the band's 2004 platinum major-label debut Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, was 'way more dramatic, way more theatrical, completely over the top, borderline psychotic,' says Gerard Way. 'It's the most pure, intense thing we've ever been involved in.' After years of touring, the band offers two incredible concerts on DVD as they move forward musically to ceremoniously end the era of The Black Parade.

One of the first things I thought when I heard My Chemical Romance's epic album The Black Parade for the first time was that it would make a monster live performance. The Black Parade pretty much single-handedly restored my faith in modern rock music, so when I heard that there was going to be a live DVD release called The Black Parade is Dead, I knew I had to get it right away.

The first disc in this 2-disc collection is the DVD, which features a full performance of The Black Parade in front of a massive crowd in Mexico City. This performance was everything I had hoped for. The band was energetic, the crowd was absolutely wild for them, and frontman Gerard Way was as theatrical as he was intense. They completely captured the spirit of the album, and with their costumes, makeup, and props also conveyed the sheer spectacle of The Black Parade. I still don't know if these guys are emo (or exactly what emo is for that matter), but I know great arena rock when I hear (and see) it, and My Chemical Romance is practically channeling Queen when they rock this arena.

The second half of the DVD was a more intimate performance in New Jersey that found the band in their "street clothes", sans makeup, and with a setlist that went beyond just The Black Parade album. It was a nice addition, and is well worth watching, but I doubt I'll come back to it as often as I do the Mexico performance.

My only complaint is that it would have been nice to have the various videos from The Black Parade included as extras, but that's a minor gripe since they are available online.

Disc 2 in the collection is an audio CD of the Mexico City performance.

This might of been the the "last performance of the black parade forever", as Gerard Way puts it, but you can re-live it, again and again, thanks to this cd/dvd package.

The dvd includes two concerts. One in mexico city and the other in Hoboken, New Jersey. The one in mexico has the bigger arena feel that i really enjoyed and the new jersey one is a more intimate club experience.

The show in mexico city is pretty cool. they play the entire black parade album, which was a pleasent surprise since i was expecting just a couple black parade songs mixed in with old favorites. but they actually did all of the songs from that album, and thats actually what i wanted.

Now for those of you who are like "...well...i kinda like the old stuff better...why aint they gonna play the old..." dont worry. the dvd contains two concerts, remember? and the hobokan new jersey one mixes in a good amount of older songs from the Three Cheers days. And they perform it minus the make up, so they look like normal guys on the street doing a show in a local club.

The quality of the dvd is pretty good. From picture to sound quality, all good. Though i wonder how awesome it would of looked on a blu-ray disc or blu ray player. But for regular dvd, its pretty sharp i think.

There isnt really any special features on this dvd, which would of made this even better. Like maybe a documentary of the whole behind the scenes of the concert and time they had in mexico, and showing the fans and things. That would of been real cool. But they dont have anything like that really. You just get a good concert.

And speaking of which, for the mexico show, they pretty much performed all these songs quite decently.

I loved My Chemical Romance's 2006 album "The Black Parade". It was pretty much everything that I think a rock record should be: funny, smart, melodic and without filler.
Because of this, I found myself drawn to it's live counterpart, "The Black Parade Is Dead!", a CD/ DVD combo that chronicles that album live in it's entirety, as well as a DVD of live footage from the tour.
To be honest with you, this is hardly an essential product for anyone who isn't a die hard fan of the band and/ or record. The live document of the record is pretty much the album with crowd noise, with few exceptions (it is now to see the bonus track, "Blood" here, though also.)
The DVD is good, well edited and the sound is crisp and well mixed. The angles are good, and isn't half as confusing as most live products.
But this is really something for the die hard fans. If you are a fairweather fan, or someone who enjoys the songs on the radio, then this will seem fairly worthless to you. But if you are a fan of the group, or even just the album, this is a nice addition to your collection, one that you probably won't spin a lot, but something you will enjoy from time to time.
Three and a half stars.

the live performance itself is great and very well recorded all except the crowd isolation..

the crowd screaming throughout this thing is way too loud and completely wrecks it - it's like white noise that almost completely overtakes the songs in some places - like the song "Cancer" for example - performed really well and slightly more raw than the album version so it would have been nice to be able to listen to this version. However the over excited screaming of what seems like 80,000 pre-pubescent 1 direction fans at an X-Factor show completely wrecks the song, everytime there is a lull in the song - the screams get louder.

People may well assume that this is part of the live recording situation and it can't be helped but I assure you - it can be helped and it was mixed that loud on purpose. If you listen to other live albums like Nofx's "They've Actually Gotten Worse Live!" the crowd is extremely quiet and with the Bad Religion album - you can barely hear the crowd at all. Jonsi's live album - no crowd sounds and even as far back as the Queen live at wembley album where there was a whole lot of crowd participation of around 200,000 people you couldn't hear the crowd in the actual songs.

obviously this isn't MCR's fault - it's the piss poor decision of the "powers that be" who wanted to over emphasize the fact that they are playing live by raising the volume on the crowd tracks (because all the instruments are close miked you typically get very little crowd coming through on the actual music tracks so they record the crowd separately) all it has done is ruin the album.

What about the 3rd disc?
CD is of the show in Mexico City, Mexico in 2007. One DVD is track for track the same show. The other DVD is of a show in 2007 that features songs from all three CDs. 3 discs right there. The special coffin box houses all the discs including 5 masks made by the band, but a different mask in... Read More
