The Black Parade

Album Review

An emo concept album? The Sgt Pepper of Screamo? There's got to be something to this album to warrant the amount of talk already generated. Emo is a funny thing really. It's strange the number of bands mis-labelled as emo. It's emotional hardcore remember, not watered-down punk rock with a bit of sixth form angst thrown on top.

My Chemical Romance have produced something here that negates all that moaning however. This is well-written stuff, catchy, melodic, and a step removed from all their imitators. The quality shines through in both the songwriting and the production, and they have enough time and maturity to put tongues in cheeks at times.

As a track, 'Dead!' actually becomes a little wearing after a while in terms of its jollity, but the rest of the material retains a distinct sense of longevity. 'This Is How I Disappear' is a lesson in songwriting that many of MCR contemporaries should sit through. To be honest the rest of the album follows this excellent form.

If you're not already excited about this album, please cast aside your prejudices and your preconceptions. This is classic stuff indeed.

well, i can say that MCR is getting better and better. their albums prove that! bullets was a unique introductory til everything went wild and ravishing on sweet revenge while the black parade has evolved fromt these two turning into something that i can't even express in a single word coz i can't find the perfect word for it! every song, every lyrics, every concept, and every instrument say it all! i just can't help but let all my emotions take over me whenever i listen to the cd. the more i understood the band and their music with the book included on the limited edition of the album. i can say that MCR is on another higher level. i am obsessed not only with the band but also with their music that it becomes a daily routine for me to listen to the album over and over again whenever i turn on my computer.CONGRATULATIONS guys! i am confident enough that the black parade certainly is the album of the year.mary eloisexoxo
