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.

I own this album in both the CD and vinyl format. The photos that make up the lyric book in the CD are also what make up the inside artwork for the vinyl. The lyrics are also included on the vinyl insert. The vinyl itself is a standard black 180 gram pressing, and the label has the spider logo, which is a cool addition. Since this is a single vinyl LP I thought that it was a bit strange for it to come in a gatefold jacket, but it's great that it allows you to have the beautiful photographs as part of the album artwork. When you hear this album, it doesn't seem like it would translate well onto vinyl, but I can assure you that it sounds absolutely amazing, you can really hear all of the incredible layers of sound in all of the songs.

Musically, I don't think that this album will ever compare to Three Cheers or The Black Parade, but this album was never meant to live up to those albums, it was made to stand on its own. Once you separate Danger Days from MCR's earlier albums, you can appreciate it for how incredible it truly is. This album is a masterpiece in its own right, each song is well crafted and they all work together to create a story for the listener. The singles from this album (Na Na Na, Sing, and Planetary) are all amazing songs, but the other tracks are all equally incredible. My personal favorites are S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W, Save Yourself I'll Hold Them Back, Destroya, and The Only Hope For Me Is You. Destroya and Save Yourself are both high energy songs that carry a very strong beat. S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W is my absolute favorite track on this album, it is so different from any other song the band has done, and it is very emotional. If you listen to its lyrics, you can really hear the emotion that was invested into it.

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.

My Chemical Romance first graced my ears with their beautiful music when I was 16 in mid-to-late 2003. Their first album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, cemented them as what would be my favorite band of all time and gave them a place among the best emo and alternative rock bands around. Their love of horror movies and comic books shined through their music and lyrics and became one of the many things that made me love them even more.

Their second album (Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge) brought them to light in the mainstream and gave them a broader fanbase. It added a new sound but kept their horror comic attitude that they've become known and loved for. By this time I had seen them live twice and had almost religious experiences at their shows. I had learned that they not only rocked beautifully live but were super sweet guys from New Jersey.

Their third release (The Black Parade) took them into mega stardom and became the anthem for many My Chem fans new and old. It had music that delved deeper into their dark humor and had a theme that only matched the ferocity of their live show of the same name (which kicked all kinds of @$$! and is the best live show I've seen to date, they even had Muse as their opening act, how much better could it get?).

Now, I am 23 and they release their forth album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys! I couldn't be happier.
