Sound — 10
Going into this I'm already a superfan when it comes to MCR so your not gonna get a bad review from me. As several others have said this album does have a different sounds from their last two but just like the others it sends out a one two melt-your-face-off death blow of Fantastic lyrics and incredible instrumentals.
Lyrics — 10
As always Gerard delivers all songs with some kind of meaning, in addition you will find the Gerard will often sing in a higher tone then in previous albums but also sings the same punkish tone for songs like House of Wolves and Teenagers. Unlike some of the songs on I bought you my bullets teh lyrics of these songs seem as though the music was made around them and they flow in unison that's close to perfection.
Overall Impression — 10
The album is not like the other it will take time to get used to it, but don't just blow it off the first time you listen, listen to it a couple times and you'll find yourself singing along and headbanging and scrambling for tabs to the songs in no time. My favorite songs from the new album are; Dead! mostly because it's a simple but very fun song to play on bass, This is how I Disappear I can't help but sing this lyrics whenever I hear, next House of Wolves this song is different from any on the album and is just a really incredible experience to listen to, Teenagers this beat will have your head rocking and your foot stomping in no time, Disenchanted this song almost makes you feel like your looking on the past even if you don't now the lyrics it feels nostalgic, finally Famous last words if I ever got the cause to really make music I would ony hope that it was even 1/16 as good as this song. If I lost this disc my life would come to a grinding halt until I got another copy.
