Sound — 10
I think this is the best debut album from any punk rock band to date. The overwhelming sound of Frank and Ray's guitar riffs are amazing, and the augmented rhythms are outstanding. This album also shows Gerard Way's incredible voice and even though some parts are iffy this entire album is just a great "bang your head, balls-to-the-wall" punk rock.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics were very ingenuitive and a little bit creepy. But when you listen to My Chemical Romance you have to except some level of morbidness.
Overall Impression — 10
This album almost stands out in a genre of it's own. The most impressive song on the album has got to be "Headfirst For Halos" It shows every aspect of the bands range. The great guitar players the steady drummer and the amazing vocalist.
