Danger Days (2010), 5.5/10

New Jersey's poppy emocore outfit My Chemical Romance, fronted by vocalist Gerard Way, debuted with I Brought You My Bullets (2002), whose sonic palette was rather monotonous but was highlighted by introspective stories a` la Smiths. The music rose up to match the standard of the lyrics on Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge (2004), that contained the catchy hit I'm Not OK and The Ghost of You. My Chemical Romance's project sounded like a harder version of the old punk-pop of bands such as Cheap Trick. The band reached its lyrical peak with the concept The Black Parade (2006), a sequence of songs that indirectly paid tribute to heavy-metal and classic rock, and generally displayed a more mature and confident posture (Dead, The End).

Desolation Row (2009) sounds a lot like vintage Sex Pistols with a hard-rock guitar.

The rock opera Danger Days - The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (2010) has too much fluff to stand on its own musical merits, although the hysterical rap-voodoobilly Vampire Money and the satanic disco romp Planetary Go rank among their best revisionist ideas. The demented power-pop single Na Na Na, the catchy arena singalong Bulletproof Heart and the furious metal attack Destroya are, instead, misguided attempts at delivering the knock-out hit.
