I bought this as something of a punt, but was blown away by the quality of this album.
It has touches of MCR and the renewed Green Day style 'rock opera' albums, but is by no means a plastic homage in an atempt to cash in. If you liked 'Black Parade', 'American Idiot' and '21st Century Breakdown', you WILL like this!
It is a true album, in that it is best listened to as a whole rather than in parts, but then it is an album, so those of an MP3/Ipod disposition may not have the patience, but you know what, that's their/(your?) problem!
I loved these guys when I was growing up, but worried this would just be an old hands playing it safe kind of affair, but they firmly put me in my place!
Not as 'punky' as their old stuff, but more grown up. No refunds if you disagree with me, but I bet you won't!
