If you're looking for MCR here you won't find it. Gerard has very successfully reinvented himself as a sleezy, glam, indie, fuzz pedal using rock star. The album is magnificent and feels like a love letter to Bowie, Bolan and 90's Alt Rock so stop delaying and purchase!

The old MCR stuff was great, they had reached a height of wide acceptance when they headlined Reading festival in 2011 and they could have carried on for years in a similar vain, with small tweaks as the band continued to mature and develop. Its a brave step to relinquish a successful formula and to re-invent yourself; but this latest period of Gerard Ways passion for music is equally awesome. There are some elements of the MCR days that you can still pick out, but these are subtle influences and they are probably more indicative of the musical style of Gerard Way as a singer than being MCR carry overs. His new found direction is both appealing and invigorating.

As many have previously stated, if you're scavenging for any last remains of MCR, you'll only find scraps here, and those are mainly carried through Gerard's style. His debut solo album is simply phenomenal. He has changed his way of doing his music by going into the past of rock. Using fuzz and a whole load of distortion, it almost delves into the glam rock era.

So, anyone who wants to peer into the future of Way's music, look no further! Definitely worth buying, for its sheer awesomeness!

I was really excited when I heard Action Cat for the first time, it was so beautiful and perfect and everything I didn't know I wanted form Gerard Way. After reading a few snippets of press from Gerard where he talked about his fuzzy guitars and brit pop influences I got really excited to hear his new album. Sadly I was disappointed when I listened to it for the first time. It just didn't flow for me. Many of the songs reminded me of other artists*, and didn't hold up to the comparison, which was distracting.

I have since listened to it a few times and it has definitely grown on me, I have found myself singing some of the songs to myself, which is always a good sign.

Overall it is a good collection of songs, and I would recommend it to MCR fans, and indeed anyone who enjoys guitar music, it's pretty accessible. I think Gerard is still experimenting with his sound, and I am hopeful that his next album will make me feel the way Action Cat did.

*Blur, Echobelly, Neutral Milk Hotel, Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream, and of course MCR sprang immediately to mind.

Aaaaaagh !!!! If I see one more review comparing Gerard's awesome new album to anyone else I will literally GO Maaaaaad !!! Gerard has always, and always will have his OWN unique sound that makes him completely different from any other artist,vocally and visually.His work is the result of the brilliant,inventive,artistic,talented person that he is and all this reflects in his music.Although I really don't want to mention MCR as I think it only fair to Gerard going solo not to,but to me Gerard was the heart of MCR,without him,his voice,his ideas and his amazing stage performances there would have been no MCR.From the first track you will feel it,the hook going in,by the end of the last track Gerard will have reeled you in,just like he always does!!! This album is still the Gerard we all know and love and if you don't get it then you just don't get Gerard at all and probably never will.I totally get it,I totally get Gerard and I totally love it !!! Congratulations Gerard on your awesome and unique album that doesn't sound like ANYONE ELSE !!!

Really like this album, think it is a good development from My Chemical Romance and there are some very powerful songs on here. I don't give it five stars because I think Gerard has gone too far with the low-fi sound. His voice is way too low down in the mix and it just makes the sound a bit noisy. I think it could have been produced a bit better, would have liked it better.

Wasn't sure whether to get this album or not but glad I did. No it isn't My Chemical Romance but I really like it. No shows is my favourite but it's the sort of album I can listen all the way through. I do think you can hear My Chemical Romance influence in this album though, as well. In a way I feel it has a more grown up feel to it.
