The Black Parade, My Chemical Romance's follow-up to its 2004 platinum major-label debut Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, "is 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." Producer by Rob Cavallo (Green Day), the album is a celebration of love and death and darkness. Join The Black Parade. This is the limited edition version, The limited edition features a long skinny box with hinged lid, wrapped in black velveteen. The 64-page book in the box contains Gerard's drawings, making-of-the album notes from the band, and 4 special photo art cards, plus the CD.
My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has alternately described his band's third album as "completely over the top" and "borderline psychotic." But even those words can't adequately prepare fans of the group's 2004 platinum major-label debut, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, for the onslaught of twisted song suites, glam-rock cannon fire and drama-club theatrics that make up The Black Parade. Tracks like "Mama" and "The End" make "Bohemian Rhapsody" sound like "Blitzkrieg Bop." It's no coincidence that the disc feels as dizzyingly monumental as Green Day's American Idiot--after all, the two albums share the same label, producer, studio, janitorial team, and sense of apocalyptic dread. Similarly, The Black Parade will cast its creators in a completely new light. Despite its overly histrionic tendencies and a totally oddball cameo from Liza Minelli, it offers a clear signal that My Chemical Romance is ready to be taken seriously. --Aidin Vaziri

Think it over while you strike a violent pose. Those blasted teenagers need to get a hold of themselves and find some solace when that Gee Key is hit on the beginning of what is now considered the most heartbreaking song known to a Killjoy. March along and sing the Emo Anthem with the ghosts of Gerard, Mikey, Frank, Bob, and Ray, because the Vampires, The Killjoys, The fans are not afraid to walk this world alone now that this amazing band has come to a close.
The item itself consisted of one cd of the album. One jewel case 10.8 mm. A back insert and a front cover. It also included an inverted black parade cardboard sleeve. The front insert is a fold out of the lyrics. A drawing of the black parade (also the case insert cover). And the fouls out on the back has a photo taken from the set of one of the tracks featured in this album "welcome to the black parade". The album itself treks the story of a cancer patient who dies and goes to his death (his happiest memory) his happiest memory was when his father took him into the city to see a matching band. He then goes to that. The black parade. The sound is theatrical and rock. Which personally I love. It is a concept album stepping away from three cheers and bullets. It sounds more modern. More fluent. More rock. More theatre. More awesome.
In another note, I love this album and the vocals of Gerard Way. With a perfect mix of depressing and energizing and all around well written songs, this album is Amazing.
The CD has a nice sleeve for it. The picture above is the wrong color the sleeve has the same design just different colors is has white text with a black background with a worn effect added. The sleeve has all of the songs listed on the back

Now on the inside it has a nice mini poster with lyrics to the songs (I believe not all of the lyrics are there to every song). The mini poster is a great addition to the CD because it has so many GREAT details and it has pictures of our beloved band consisting of Gerard, Mikey, Frank, Ray, and Bob. I am a huge fan of My Chemical Romance and I can say that this is an AWESOME album! Any killjoy knows The Black Parade is a MUST HAVE ALBUM!!!! I would recommend buying it!!!!
Shipping and Quality
Now the one thing I have to say about the shipping is it had taken quite a while to get here. I had ordered Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge and The Black Parade from the same seller on the same day at the same time yet they came separately. I just had to inform you on that. Now on the quality, it had came in GREAT condition! Not really any wearing on the CD that was not supposed to be there. The disk is completely clean from what I can tell (and I didn't have to clean it either). I must say again THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT AND I SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!
