My Chemical Romance: The Mad Gear And Missile Kid

Sound — 8
Let me start off by saying My Chemical Romance is one of my favorite bands but I promise this won't taint my review! -My impression of this album was relatively good. The album is barely less than six minutes but it still is filled to the brim with energy. -The story behind this EP is relatively simple. Basically this EP is what the Killjoys were listening to during the music videos for "Na Na Na" and "Sing". -This album has amazing bass lines! Not only is Mikey Way an amazing bassist but he is a very creative writer and the bass lines he uses are very unique. The guitar parts are genius! The chords are very solid and not just your basic three chord progression. Although I'm not a huge fan of the chorus of "Black Dragon Fighting Society" it's just kind of odd. Not really my style. I do not like the drum lines in these at all. Mike Pedicone is an average drummer. Just average and nothing more. The drum lines are just so-so in my opinion. Overall the sound is unique in some ways and average in others.

-The lyrics... What can I say about the lyrics? "F.T.W.W.W." - In this song repetition is MCR's best friend. The lyrics all have relatively the same tune. The chorus "She said come on come on kiss my battery come on come on I'll be your android girl" is repeated many times through the song. This song is one that can get stuck in your head for days, especially the chorus. Very catchy and makes you want to sing along. My favorite track for a reason. "Mastas Of Ravenkroft" - In this song I feel like I am hearing the same thing many times on repeat. But in a song this short it doesn't make a huge difference. The tune is catchy and the lyrics are pretty fun. Overall it's pretty good song. "Black Dragon Fighting Society" - Can I start off with how much I love I line "I drink juice when I'm killing because it's f***ing delicious!"? Other than that I don't really like the lyrics in this one to repetitive and I just don't like them. It's an okay song. I don't really have much to say about this one. -The lyrics definitely go along with the music. Although I don't like all of the lyrics they definitely match the music. High energy singing with high energy instrumentals. -Gerard Way has an awesome voice. He can actually sing but his New Jersey accent makes him sound kind of raw and that matches this band's sound. Raw talent.

Overall Impression — 8
Overall I think this a relatively good album for being so short. Funny and catchy lyrics, great bass and guitar lines. The most impressive song was probably "F.T.W.W.W." I love that it's so short. It's fun to wake up to because it's so energetic and fast paced! If it were stolen or lost I would most likely buy it again.

    Funny how women tell us not to make assumptions based on their gender, yet expect us to give them leniency for the same thing.

    I think you've missed the point of this EP.

    @ColdHeartedHero I was never saying Pedicone was not a good drummer but on this album it was only so so
