5.0 out of 5 stars Bitter and Ferocious New Hardcore, 11 Mar 2005
This review is from: Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge (Audio CD)
'Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge' is a much more refined and consistent release than their debut album 'I Brought You My Bullets...". Such a marked improvement is this second album that it has risen through the ranks of Hardcore and I don't feel too presumptuous to say set them as one of the top in the genre. The developed sound can be extremely catching; "To The End" and "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" demonstrate this strongest. What is most striking about MCR is their strong harmonies that produce their signature sound with Robert Way's biting and bitter retorts, flawlessly executed on "Thank You For The Venom". The most captivating element of the album is its seemingly endless energy; apart from the Interlude the album runs from start to finish with the pace of a runaway train, only brief pauses offering respite.
Normally on such exceptional sounding works there can be a loss in strength or sharpness of lyrics but you will not find that here. The lyrics supplement the music as perfectly as their switching of riffs builds up each verse and chorus. There are still many elements that MCR haven't tapped into but have demonstrated such as the build up of the softer "Cemetery Drive". This album really stands out from most hardcore albums and leaves enough for future albums to improve on so don't miss out on the rise to the top for MCR.
