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.

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.

A few eyebrows were raised on the release of 2006's 'Black Parade' by My Chemical Romance' and traditionally, while I'm not really a fan of emo, I thought, seeing as it had good reviews in various guitar magazines, I gave it a try. I'm glad I did.

The music has gone up a notch in quality, and while there was never any doubting Gerard Way and Co's musical ability, Way's vocal ability was occasionally brought into question, but he gets away with it due to MCR's catchy riffs and hooks. Occasionally he does reach the high points, I'll give him that.

The opener, 'The End', is a short, two-minute rock piece that would not sound out of place on Broadway or London's West End, such is the gusto and flair that Way brings to the music. Catchy and witty, this is an impressive opener. 9/10.

Track two, 'Dead!', is also catchy like its predecessor. The guitaring is sometimes reminiscent of Brian May and Queen and that can't be a bad thing. Each song is a story full of pity and remorse but such is the liveliness injected into the songs, it almost sounds like a musical of some sort, and sounds full of fun. The music is much better than on 'Three Cheers...' and the 'la la la la la la....' towards the end is surely aimed to please crowds live at festivals/gigs. 10/10.

Track three, 'This Is How I Disappear', begins in similar fashion to the start of the album, in catchy fashion with appealing hooks and riffs. MCR seem to take the darker side of life and give it an injection of liveliness and make it seem like it's such a positive thing. 9/10.

Track four, 'The Sharpest Lives' is one of my favourites on the album. It has something about it which sets it apart from other tracks.

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.
