Did you ever listen to a band for the first time and have them totally take your breath away? This is what listening to My Chemical Romance could do for first time listeners. Hailing from Belleville, New Jersey this five piece band is a refreshing and unique entry into the Hardcore genre. Mixing brilliant lyrics and powerful vocals this band goes above and beyond any hardcore or emo band of late. Some stand out tunes on this cd are "Cubicles", 'Vampires Will Never Hurt You", and "This is the Best Day Ever". The band has already gained recognition by opening for Thursday and this cd is produced by Geoff Rickely the lead singer for Thursday. Certainly not a bad start for a first time effort. To get the full My Chemical Romance experience you have to see them live because the energy this band displays is almost magical. Without a doubt this is a stunning debut for a band that could very well be very big one day.
I am going to admit it: I discovered this band through "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)". I'm not even going to pretend that I like this album more.
But if you could only buy of My Chemical Romance's albums, I would still say to buy this one.
While "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" holds vivid imagery, energetic melodies and the like, in the end, nothing like that can compete with the amazing lyrics, symbolism, and placement of "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brough Me Your Love". "Revenge" is a story. "Bullets" is art.

There is even a spoken echo that can be heard, which makes a very nice touch. This album holds nothing back, and stops at nothing to get...
After seeing My Chemical Romance last night on the last date of their tour with Piebald, Minus the Bear and Noise Ratchet (as of this writing, Jan 31) here in Las Vegas, NV, I was in awe of their live performance, and I wanted to hear what the songs sounded like on the recording. So off to the merch booth I went to pick up one of their t-shirt's and this CD. Although I have only had it for a day, I can already safely say that I am IN LOVE with this CD. I can not understand at all why anyone would call MCR formulatic, generic, and I certainly don't agree that these songs are not catchy. After listening to this CD, I'm always left wanting to hear it again. And again. Well, anyways... All I can say is this. Download "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" and/or "This is the Best Day Ever". If you find that this isn't your particular cup of tea, then don't buy it; but I think that if you had enough interest in this band to be reading any of these reviews, I can almost...
