The band recorded I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, which was released on in 2003.

Editorial Reviews

Spin magazine has named My Chemical Romance one of its "Bands to Watch" in 2004. Alternative Press calls the group's major-label debut, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, one of the year's "Most Anticipated". With influences ranging from Iron Maiden and The Misfits to Morrissey, this New Jersey based band grabs listeners by the throat and then explodes with wall-of-sound energy and a cool darkness echoing Nick Cave or a young Trent Reznor. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge - and for My Chemical Romance.

Format:Audio CD
The winning formula of My Chemical Romance (MCR) is a mixture of four totally different styles, Gothic/British vocal and lyric, "Sonic youth"-ish type of rhythm guitar, neck-breaking "Metal"-ish guitar solo, and punk/emo rhythm, and this album (their second album and first major label release) show what is the best answer they can work out from the formula.

This 13 tracks disc is a combination of strong melodies, smart and exciting arrangement, breath-taking guitar solo, the mix-up of emo/punk rhythm and guitar solo is refeshing and sucessful twist, they sucessfully made turn and twist and stop, nothing really innovative here, but they just combined things that we already knew in smart and effective ways, in order to push and pull listeners to different climax and scenes, and the "Romeo and Juliet" inspired lyrics are sentimental and powerful, listen to "Thank You for the Venom", "I Never Told You What I Do for a Living", "Helena" and their first single "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)", you might feel weird at first, but you'll find yourselves singing their tunes while you have nothing to do soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very different than the first, but equally great!!! June 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If youre going to be like everyone else and compare this cd to their first cd, "I brought you my bullets..." with hopes of it being along the same lines, then you may be a little disappointed...like I was at first. But after I listened to the whole thing through the first time (thats all it took) it ranked equally high, if not higher, than their first album. It may have a more pop-punk influence with less screaming but it definitely has more energy. Even the songs packed with emotion like The Ghost of You are full of energy. Plus, every song is catchy. In fact, I have never heard an album as catchy as this. Excellent vocals by the way.
1. Helena-Excellent choice to put this song first. I listened to this about 8 times in a row before moving on to track 2. One of the most catchy and energetic songs on this cd. 10/10
2. Give em Hell Kid-Another energetic song, try not moving to this one. 9/10
3. To the End-well...more energy. Awesome guitar/vocal combination in this song. Awesome lyrics too. 9/10
4. You know what they do to guys...-Very cool intro to this song, kind of jazzy. One of the harder choruses on the album. Very catchy. Probably my third favorite. 10/10
5. Im Not Okay-"You said you read me like a book, but the pages are all torn and frayed"-good song and very emotional. Catchy and more punk sounding than others. Energetic, just like all others. 10/10
6. The Ghost of You-Wow! My definite favorite. Best chorus I have ever heard and great lyrics. "at the top of my lungs, in my arms she dies, she dies" Most emotion in this one, but still hits as hard as the others. I like that. 11/10
7. The Jetset life is gonna kill me-Great hard hitting chorus and good all around song. 9/10
8. Interlude-just an interlude, nothing special
9.

5.0 out of 5 stars A step up from their prior release! September 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was impressed with them in I Brought You Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love but not floored. They came out with this new release and I picked it up out of curiousity.

This time, they floored me. The music is nothing short of amazing. I had chills going up and down my spine when I heard the first track Helena. The riffs, and tunes are catchy, and the singer's voice is really filled with emotion. You can feel the music.

My favorite track on the album is probably I'm Not OKay. The song is amazing. Catchy and a great song to sing your lungs out to, especially if you can identify with their message.

If you are looking for something kind of like Finch/Taking Back Sunday/Thursday I would reccommend this. It's not the same, it's just sort of like them. My Chemical Romance is more hardcore ballad like, with fast guitars and heavy beats..

A sound choice, if I do say so myself.

Format:Audio CD
Great metal guitar solos, punk style songs, nice rythems, and a dash of "emo" helped My Chemical Romance sell out this album. First off, I would like to say that this is one of most well originated albums of all time. Just look at the names of their songs. "Thank you for the venom" "Its not a statement, Its a deathwish" "I never told you what i did for a living". I mean, these are great names for songs, with great style, rythem, and punk to go along with it.

This album gives you 13 quality tracks that can blow you're mind away!

Let me first start with "I'm Not Okay (I promise)" You may have seen this video on MTV, or on the internet, but for those of you who have'nt, this is their best song on the album. The beggining guitar sequence is a nice way to introduce the plot, and the lyrics blow me away. This was "My Chemical Romance's" first single, and I don't think it will be their last.

Helena: This song was probably my favorite out of the 13 tracks on this album. The chorus is really catchy. At first, this song might seem weird, but I promise that you'll enjoy it after a while. Back to the chorus. Here are the lyrics:

"What's the worst thing I could say

Things are better if I stay!

So long and good night

So long and good night!"

They might not seem to snazzy on paper, but they are really catchy when listening to them. I enjoy the plot line as well. This song really showed the emotional side of My Chemical Romance, and I hope that they can make more songs like this in the future.

Thank You For The Venom: Wow! At first I was stunned. I thought that this was one of those kind of songs you just do to add to you're album, but I was wrong.

The sex pistols are real punk, why do people these days think pop groups...
Hardcore punk was derived from punk sometime in the late eighties/early nineties. Post-hardcore was derived from hardcore punk. There are many other sub-genres of punk which is why you see Alternative-Punk-Hardcore etc. You can find the history and everything that has come from punk on wikipedia.
