The Black Parade Limited Edition is definitely a worthwhile purchase for a My Chemical Romance fan. It contains a 62 page book explaining about the making of the album by way of commentary from vocalist, Gerard Way, bassist, Mikey Way and drummer, Bob Bryar. The book also contains commentary on the songs in The Black Parade from guitarists Ray Torro and Frank Iero. Throuought this brilliantly presented booklet there is also some of Gerard Way's original concept artwork. Also contains the song lyrics.

The CD itself is a brilliant thrid album from My Chemical Romance, though a morbid theme runs throughout, the album remains ironically upbeat overall. All this and four publicity shot picture cards are included in a black velvet box.

This is definitely a brilliant buy for any MCR fan who wishses to understand more about the Black Parade.

Like most MCR fans I was itching to get at the new album,especially after hearing the single.When I heard about this limited edition boxset I jumped at the chance to buy it (even if it did seem expensive and I had to wait a day for it to arrive).I wasnt dissapointed. Although this boxset seems expensive its great value for money if you are a true fan of MCR.The box itself is a work of art with its velvet, embossed logo and cool interior. However the best part of this boxset has to be the booklet inside.It has some of Gerards artwork, a step by step account of the making of the album by Gerard himself and also an explantion of the meanings behind the songs. It was a fascinating read and really made listening to the album that much better. The box also contains some large picture cards of various promtional shots of the band in their uniforms. These cards are really nice and would look good framed. The album itself also doesnt dissapoint. After enjoying three cheers so much I was hoping that the black parade wouldnt let me down, but it didnt,I instantly fell in love with it and by the second day of listening was already singing along and loving every track.The highlights of the album are in my opinion-cancer,mama and teenagers. I cant reccomend this limited edition boxset enough so if your thinking of getting it go ahead,you wont be sorry.

I've been a MCR fan for many a year now, and when I first heard 'Welcome to the black parade' on my car radio it filled me with a weird sense of joy and panic. For so long this band has been a relative secret to so many of us, and now to hear it blasted on radio 1 with the quintessential DJ singing their praises seems weird, but its time to buckle down and realize our boys are going big.

'The Black Parade' is by no measure a 'sellout' to commercialism, quite from it in this album the boys strive to fulfill their promise in 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'. Everyone by now has heard the stunning title track 'Welcome to the Black Parade' with its brilliant opening, heralding the age of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but there are also gems towards the end of the album, with 'Disenchanted' and 'Famous last Words' being two of my favorites. And, if your looking for your new teen anthem look no further than the melodic 'teenagers'

This is a beautiful album which proves to all emo critics that the genre has so much more to offer, and the Black Parade is leading the charge! Hoozah!

Although different from earlier releases, make no mistake this brilliant and ambitious album retains the MCR trademark. Earlier MCR albums (which I also like very much), have had a greater sense of urgency and spontaneity - The Black Parade is measured, deliberate and focused.

The Black Parade is a Concept (thematic) album based on the voyage through the death process of "the patient". Unlike "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" their second album (also a concept album), the metaphor and fiction have not been plied as thickly - the audience is lead on a journey that is in essence a thinly veiled reflective analysis of Gerard Way's (lead vocals and lyricist), own life. Growing up as a somewhat overweight introverted nerdy kid ostracised by the mainstream, Gerard initially pursued a career as a comic book illustrator, but quickly became disillusioned after working in the industry. Having witnessed events of 9/11 on his way to work, he decided to do something more meaningful with his life....that something became music. After forming the band, MCR very quickly exploded in popularity and Gerard found himself catapulted to rock icon status - initially his coping mechanism for rite of passage being pills and alcohol, which made him suicidal and almost pulled the band apart. Now well free of the chemical props, Gerard has embraced his position as "rock star" and driving force of a band that will surely find a position in rock history. This album is very much about putting the uglier moments of his life under the microscope.

Musically, the band has matured and gained a greater sense of artistic confidence - allowing them to take risks to explore different musical styles.

This band are like marmite, you either love them or you hate them. Fans seem to declare them as the best band in the world, and are apparantly planning an "MCR day" while haters seem so against them that there was a petition at the download festival to stop them playing. I don't hate them but I don't love them either, and the same applies to this album, about half of it is annoying, and the other half is, frankly, frighteningly good.

Some songs are just overly whinny, which spoils what are potentially good tunes such as "The Sharpest Lives" and "I Don't Love You" both of which are a little too much for me to take, other songs like "House of Wolves" and "Sleep" are just a bit boring and they just seem to be used as filler. But when the band stop whinning and start sneering it's really good; "Dead!" and "Mama" are perhaps the most mocking, fun songs on the album while "Teenagers" is probably the best. When the band are over the top on these it makes the album better because it's more interesting, although simpler songs like "Famous Last Words" and "Disenchanted" are also highlights.

If you're a complete MCR hater, and i've got to say you guys need to lighten up, then hearing this album isn't likely to change your opinion too much. But there are enough good songs on here to mean that the album deserves to be appreciated by anyone mature enough to look past the emo label.
