My best mate is raving about this album. Ijust...words cannot describe. Their appeal is in their adolescent, prissy-macabre lyrics and gothic chic facade - thats what appeals to the squadrons of teenagers who blow their fannies over them. Its not great music, its competent pop-rock at best. Seriously, if they dressed in a white t-shirt and jeans with shaven haircuts minus the eyeliner, would they be so succesful? i think we all know the answer. They remind of a band freewheeling around the indie scene at the moment called The Horrors. People are loving them for their similiar dress sense to victorian undertakers. Its all rubbish.

Just got done listening to "The Black Parade"

I found it boring, over-produced and nowhere near as good as their first album. (Not saying that their first album was great, but it was better than this.)

It certainly has appeal for the "Goth/Emo/GirlyBoy" fashion that's going on over here at the moment...just not for people who like to listen to music.

I couldn't find the story anywhere in the lyrics. Maybe the Black Parade is meant to be a concept album... but in reality it isn't a concept album.

Oh dear, I fear I'm about to lose all possible respect and cool points on this forum, but... I do like the new album. I'd been given reviews of how it was a "merely boring run-of-the-mill new rock album" but, it's not, even on first listen. It's interesting. And although normally I have issues when bands claim it's influence when it's practically imitating, I don't mind the way they took The Wall under their wing... It all added something a little extra to the album, anyway. The opening track seems to hit you with a healthy dose of Pink Floyd, just, with a My Chemical Romance and death-obsessed twist.

I just have a huge issue with the band themselves, especially with this whole take on terminal illness and death they have. I know it's worked on the album, and I do love the music and the whole concept of the album. But honestly, that boy will never learn, he's gone about almost bragging about how he's cut his hair to get into the role of cancer victims all the better. Just shush, Gerard.

you couldnt find that story anywhere in the lyrics because thats not what the album is about that was the concept for three cheers for sweet revenge the concerpt behind the black parade is about a boy whos dying from cancer and the black parade is supposed to be about his last few months on earth and how his battle with cancer is like the black parade
