Biography

My Chemical Romance formed in suburban New Jersey in 2001 out of a mutual love of horror movies, music and punk philosophies. The group’s first song was “Skylines and Turnstiles,” which was penned after experiencing the devastation of 9/11. The band recorded I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, which was released on in 2003.

The band entered the studio in ... Read more in Amazon's My Chemical Romance Store

Product Description

Product Description

2010 release from the globally massive Alt-Rock superheroes. Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys is the first studio album from My Chemical Romance since 2006's The Black Parade and was produced by new Warner Bros. Records Chairman Rob Cavallo, who produced The Black Parade as well as albums by Dave Matthews Band, Jawbreaker, and The Goo Goo Dolls, among many others.

BBC Review

When My Chemical Romance said they wanted their fourth album to be a stripped-down affair, warning sirens went off. You could imagine the huge choruses of their previous albums gone smudgy and restrained, sucked of life. For a band that has always prided itself on histrionics, on passion, on creating a show, it was an unnerving proposition. Would they become the latest thrilling punk band to drift helplessly towards the middle of the road?

Fortunately, what My Chemical Romance meant by "stripped-down" was getting back to the basics of what they love about making music. And you can understand why they wanted to. Perhaps when they were knee-deep in the controversy they faced while promoting The Black Parade – especially in this country, where they were accused of being behind an "emo cult" that glamorised suicide – perhaps they decided they’d had enough of all the posturing, all the judgement, and focusing on the music again was the only way to escape the madness.

Danger Days is the result: a fiendishly entertaining, brash and intelligent record that is shaped by the music they love: Queen, Green Day, Black Flag, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure… even Bon bloody Jovi. All classic influences, all bleeding together in an album that does that rare thing: combining the past to create something new, rubber-stamped with My Chemical Romance’s unique vision.

This is an album of ambition and contrasts. For every fuzzy punk blur (Na Na Na, Party Poison, Vampire Money) there is a monumental, stadium-pleasing, hair-raising rock anthem (SING, S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W) that will get thousands of hands lifted into the air and voices singing in unison. There are synths and electronic bleeps (Planetary (GO!), The Kids from Yesterday), a shimmering pop song that Robert Smith would be proud of (Summertime), and one of the band’s heaviest tracks to date (DESTROYA). Everything sounds fresh and reinvigorated. It sounds like it was fun to make.

My Chemical Romance have marked themselves out from their contemporaries with this release by being prepared to take risks, and by pulling it off. This is a band that never rests on its laurels, a band that embraces new ideas but also knows how to write killer choruses. The worry was that this record would turn out dull; the reality blows that concern out of the water.

When My Chemical Romance first announced a "Pop - Dance Album" back in September, many people's first reaction was "What the hell?!". It seemed unlikely that MCR, who since releasing the phenomenal "Black Parade" had been called "Emo Superstars" "emo fags", "A Death Cult", and been blamed as the reason for a teenager's suicide, would become the very thing they seeked to avoid - the "Popular Kids". The first listen of some of the tracks on Danger Days is interesting, to say the least. But of course, this is MCR, and there is some poisonous, and totally brilliant twist on the idea.

This "twist" is the concept of the album - a group of outlaws (The "Killjoys", played by the band) in a post-nuclear-war California fighting against the evil "Better Living Industries" (or BL/ind for short) who basically run the world. This is established in the video for "Na Na Na", featuring both parties driving around the desert firing laser guns at each other. Yes, it's a massive and ridiculous concept, which written on paper, doesn't work. However, MCR have a way of working stupidly massive concepts their way and making them awesome - and in a way, this album seems almost satirical of the world we live in today, one in which massive corporations (for example, Apple) run the world, and which those who want to break away from this are seen as "disturbing the peace", or "killing joy". In fact, think Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" (Complete with happiness drugs, courtesy of BL/ind!) painted pastel colours, and thrown in the desert.

Concept aside, this album is still marvellous - opening songs "Look Alive Sunshine" and "Na Na Na" set out this alum for what it is - not pop-rock from 2010, but an 80s influenced work (think 80s Punk and David Bowie surviving a Nuclear Explosion).

this is a great album which contains lots of new material but also lots that sounds like a throwback to three cheers for sweet revenge. Punchy exiting and electric are only some of the words i would use to describe this album. Delivery was great got here in 3 days despite the snow and that it was Christmas

The long awaited new album from M.C.R. is here and if you are a fan you will not be disappointed. A good mix of solid punk riffs and their dark ballads make for a great listen. Best album to date in my humble opinion. Enjoy!

Over 4 years it's been since the black parade and if it takes another 4 years to create a record as good as this then I'm more than happy to wait!

As soon as I heard the single Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) I had very little hope for the rest of the album as I personally thought it was quite weak and a little boring. Regardless of this, I purchased the album and played it with a slightly negative attitude towards it. I couldn't tell you how many times I've listened to it over the last 2 weeks, it's grown and grown and grown on me and I can't stop listening to it!

I thought it was nearly impossible to create an entire album that matches up to the black parade but well, well, well I think they may have just done it. Absolutely fantastic music and the arrangement and quantity are spot on for me. I listen to a song and look forward to the next, these guys are truly talented. 5 well earned stars from me!!..... Oh, I almost forgot, buy this album!

So it's not 'The Black Parade', or 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge' or their first album 'I brought you my bullets...' but thats MCR's whole attitude when it comes to albums - there's always a hint of MCR but they are always developing and changing their style of music and defining the genre even further. My personal favourite remains 'The Black Parade' album purely because I love every single song on it and each one could be a hit in its own right. This album comprises some new awesome songs 'Na Na Na..' is a great song and kind of sums up the whole album. The best songs in this album feature mainly in the beginning of the album. 'Bulletproof heart', 'Sing' and 'The only hope for me is you'. A couple of the songs at the end of the album are a little so-so and so thats why Ive given the album 4* instead of 5* - it's not full of knockout hits, but it is really good, listenable and features a couple of my new MCR favourites.

I have always been a fan of My Chemical Romance, so let me explain my thoughts as fully as I can.
Although the "Bullets" album wasn't exactly what you'd call a Classic, it had enough punch, heart and vigour to warrant a well deserved mention. And looking later to "The Black Parade" the style and sophistication of the album called out to new potential fans who preferred the more radio-friendly sound
But most fans will agree with me when I say it's all about "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge". Anything and everything the band does will, in my eyes, be compared to the opus that is the 3 cheers album. "Danger Days" is pretty damn close.
It mixes everything the band has done before, with extraordinary storytelling and powerful aggression. The rawness we used to get from the band has kind of faded with time, but the polished effect of their latest album isn't as in-your-face as it was with "Black Parade".
The more up-tempo songs are addictive - Planetary (Go!), Na Na Na and Party Poison hook you in with some catchy lyrics and gorgeous layered sounds. It's the textures in these kinds of songs that make all My Chem songs a little bit special.
There's definitely a nod to many other bands and genres in this album. There're influences from punk bands such as the Ramones, conceptualism that bows before Bowie and even a bit of Blur thrown in. The band has always shown their appreciation for various musical styles and this album showcases that.
Is it the ultimate My Chem album? No, but it's a damn good album that can satisfy the tastes of old and new fans alike.
