I love my chemical romance. I think that you definitely would have to be a fan to watch this DVD. The things such as the video diary will probably seem boring to non fans because it is 2 hours of them talking about themselves and the band. My Chemical romance has always had a very unique sound, so I couldn't really compare the to another band. This DVD mostly focuses on the "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" album, and My Chemical Romance around that time, however on the live performances, they did do some of their songs from their earlier album, "I Bought You My Bullets, You Bought Me Your Love."

The DVD is split into sections. there is the CD, which has live performances, aol sessions and never before heard songs, such as the demo version of "I Never Told You What I Do For A Living" and "The Desert Song" There is then a video diary, which is more of an autobiography, spoken by the band, but it isn't boring as there is other footage. There is then another part which has their music videos, live performances, the making of these music videos, and aol sessions. The three discs have everything a fan of My Chemical Romance fan coukd ever want. I am very happy about the playlists on the DVD and CD because it is not only some of the songs from "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" but it also has some okd songs. Many people accuse bands who bring out a DVD with a CD on it to just releasing their album twice. That does not apply for "Life On The Murder Scene" The CD that is included in this package has no songs on it that are the same from any of their albums. they are all live or from aol sessions, or special unheard songs. I am very satisfied with "Life On The Murder Scene" because it is much better than I thought it would be.
Production Quality — 9
Something that I do not understand about this DVD is that whenever I play it on my TV in my room it is in black and white. I changed it to the playstation 2 and it was again in black and white, but when I watched it downstairs, or another TV, it was in colour. This may not be the DVD it may be the televison, but I just thought it was strange. It was produced very well, because it just wasn't just them talking for two hours, they have found ways to keep the viewer entertained, because even though I am a huge fan of My Chemical Romance, watching for them for around four hours can get boring.
Overall Impression — 7
I think this DVD is pretty amazing. When I picked it up in the shop, the front cover kind of made me a bit weary of buying it (sort of the same front cover as "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" other then that instead of Gerard drawing it, it is real people, covered in blood). If you watch the whole of this DVD, will you will know anything and everything there is to know about my chemical romance. It will probably make you like them even more. What I particularly love about it is all of the funny bits in the video diary, such as the band messing about and having a fun time. What I don't really like about it is the fact that the video diary does drag on a bit. I am a devoted fan of MCR, and at some parts I got bored, I think that if a person who wasn't particulaly into my chemical romance would watch it they would probably get bored early and turn it off. And I would buy it again if it got lost and stolen, but it wouldn't be at the top of my list to buy it again.
