Sound — 4
The newest My Chemical Romance album "The Black Parade" I found was a huge dissapoinment! I was a huge fan of the band but their new album's sound has completely changed, there are only a few songs which have kept the original punk sound that the band used to have. The style of music is now more of a Queen kind of sound, and the only way to recognise the band as My Chemical Romance is now by the voice of frontman Gerard Way.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics aren't the bleak My Chemical Romance that the first two albums had but they are still fairly good and go well with their new style of music. Gerard Way's singing is still very good, he seems to be the only way you can identify this album with the previous ones.
Overall Impression — 5
This album does in no way compare to their older ones. I'd say the most impressive songs from this album are "I Don't Love You", "House Of Wolves" and "Famous Last Words". There's nothing that I particularly love about the album, but I hate the fact that the band have completely changed their style. I found this album a huge dissapointment and if it we're lost or stolen I wouldn't purchase it again!
