Wow. Where do I begin? Sound? Amazing. Blew me away. I thought that they sort of rushed this album out. Don't ask me why but I did. But I'm glad it is out because it is amazing. The guitar sound is amazing. But they should have had some bass solos. You don't hear much of the bass when you listen to there songs. I play bass so that is a down point for me. I really like this album, got it the day it came out. And well I'm writing this the day it came out. Guitar amazing. Bass, needs more.

Lyrics. Great. I really like the song called "Cancer". It's really emotional and it's saying that the person has cancer and that he's not himself because of the chemo. I really like that song. In a lot of there songs they're talking about people dying. Like Dead! even though I like that song a lot, by the title you can tell they're talking about someone who they want to die or is going to or is. I really like that one. My favorite one is probably "House Of Wolves". I like really fast paced songs and that one is and the lyircs in that one are good too. "Welcome To The Black Parade", wow. I really like the lyrics in that song. Especially the beginning when he is talking how his father took him into the city to see The Black Parade. Very well done. Like I said before it is a lot about people dying, but they mainly concentrate on that in the beginning. In the end I think they change and get a little more upbeat and maybe just a little bit more emotional. Awesome Lyrics. Gerard blows me away.
Overall Impression — 9
Get this album. Just like all I can say. Some of the best songs are Dead!, Welcome To The Black Parade, House Of Wolves, Cancer, Mama, Teenagers, and Disenchanted. I really love this album. It's great. But it just kills me that they don't have any bass solos. I just wish they did have some then it would make me like it even more. That is if I could like it any more than I do. If this CD were lost or stolen, yeah I would go out and buy another copy. Are you crazy? Who wouldn't? It's awesome.
