Let me tell you that arriving back home with my pre-ordered CD of My Chemical Romance’s newest album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, waiting at my door was probably one of the best things to come home to. It’s been some time since we’ve heard from My Chemical Romance since their last CD The Black Parade. For you MCR fans, you already knew that this CD was actually supposed to come out earlier this year. However, the band thought that they really could bring their fourth album to its greatest possible intensity.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, the waiting has come to an end and what they have created is something well worth the wait. Danger Days is filled with punk rock with hits of alternative. There are those songs like “Na Na Na” and “Planetary (GO!)” that just make you want to get up and rise up against all done wrong in the world. Other songs have a cause to inspire you to…well… do what exactly the song is called; “Sing”. Others are a bit more mellow, but they trap you into a state where the lyrics just speak to you and all you want to do is lay back and take in the song. Finally, you have a song like “Party Poison” that if you don’t start to dance just a little, then there is truly something immoral. If My Chemical Romance’s goal was to put you on a rollercoaster through a journey of the true lives of the fabulous killjoys; well they definitely met that objective.
Danger Days transports you into MCR’s world, the killjoys’ world where the good and bad clash against one another with ray guns, masks, and where the aftermath is secondary. When’s the last time an album had that affect on its listeners? Danger Days is unexpected coming from an album but that’s anticipated of My Chemical Romance. They’ve always been the band to push limits and blow past other bands when it comes to creating a phenomenal fan base that has stuck with them thought their highs and lows. To creating music, lyrics, melodies, music videos, and albums that are amazing and hard to touch or come close to. As an MCR fan myself, I have heard the songs that they have came out with from the beginning and now as I listen to their current songs; I am just thrilled to hear the epic changes and growth that they’ve been through. So come along with My Chemical Romance and listen to “the true lives of the fabulous killjoys” with Danger Days.
