Its time to bring these guys out of the closet!, 26 Oct. 2006
I've been a MCR fan for many a year now, and when I first heard 'Welcome to the black parade' on my car radio it filled me with a weird sense of joy and panic. For so long this band has been a relative secret to so many of us, and now to hear it blasted on radio 1 with the quintessential DJ singing their praises seems weird, but its time to buckle down and realize our boys are going big.
'The Black Parade' is by no measure a 'sellout' to commercialism, quite from it in this album the boys strive to fulfill their promise in 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'. Everyone by now has heard the stunning title track 'Welcome to the Black Parade' with its brilliant opening, heralding the age of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but there are also gems towards the end of the album, with 'Disenchanted' and 'Famous last Words' being two of my favorites. And, if your looking for your new teen anthem look no further than the melodic 'teenagers'
This is a beautiful album which proves to all emo critics that the genre has so much more to offer, and the Black Parade is leading the charge! Hoozah!
