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.

Format: Audio CD
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).

Track-by-track review!

1. 'Look Alive, Sunshine' 5/5

Here we are introduced to our setting, 'California 2019', by our guide and expert radio host, Dr. Death Defying. Speaking in an almost 'Clockwork Orange' language, the track is a perfect way to start off the album, and leads very well into the second song.

2. 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na etc..)' 5/5

If you've followed MCR in the past few months/years then you have no doubt heard this little punk rock gem. It's fast, it's crazy, and Gerards vocals are the best they've been for awhile. Also, his lyrics stick with the theme of the album very nicely, at times also decending into the 'Clockwork Orange-ness' that Dr.Death did on the first track. Put it into your cars CD player and drive, very very fast.

3. 'Bulletproof Heart' 5/5

Upon first listen this sounded like the only bad song on the album, but now I've come to love it. The euphoric chorus is headed by the lyric "Gravity, don't mean too much to me!". This is a much more 'pop' sounding MCR than usual, but that isn't an insult. MCR are just doing what they do best once again, 'genre-hopping'.

4. 'Sing' 4/5

The second single off the album is full of heavy, rythmic drums and booming bass. Gerards vocals zip between these two colliding instruments, forming some great verses. The chorus is also yet again another euphoric call to arms, with the lyrics being ; "Sing it from the heart
Sing it till you're nuts
Sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts." It's still a great song, but just doesn't really seem to be as good as the others.

5. 'Planetary (GO!)' 5/5

If it wern't for the guitars then this could easily be declared a dance song. But with My Chem nothing is ever that simple.

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

Look alive sunshine sunshine! This album shows how far MCR have developed over the years and is full of catchy (almost pop influenced) tunes but in my opinion this does not detract from what I find a worthy musical direction for them. A very easy album to get into and I found that most of the it worked for me from the very first listen. For me it's kind of The Black Parade 2. Granted, the songs do not match it's predecessor for quality but I find that as a whole I really love this album.

Brilliant album! I wasn't so keen on this upon release but having bought the vinyl I got to say I thought it was much better than I originally did.

It's almost quite pop/rock/dance sounding so a massive departure from the black parade album in which this follows.
