Dec 14, 2010Rock'n'roll used to be about greatness, about escape and heroes. Once, you could get lost in an album, entangled in its world. It's been a long time since that has been the case. Danger Days...will change that.[13 Nov 2010, p.50]

This time instead of "emo" and death this is a power popWhat turned out to be the final album released by MCR happens to be their finest. This time instead of "emo" and death this is a power pop record that actually works considering who made it. The narrative is, as always, ridiculous; but what do you expect from a man who writes comic books when not writing music? Either way the story works for most of the album, but the songs also work as individual pieces and once again the instrumentation is brilliant and the use of synthesisers creates a few lively party songs (see Planetary (GO!)) and actually makes the album impressive. This is a perfect record, although some would claim The Black Parade to be superior on many levels, this is MCR's greatest achievement in their career.… Expand

This album thoroughly deserves a 10/10. Right up there with the Black Keys as best album of the year… Expand

With Danger Days, the guys have successfully steered way clear of the emo that people took so much exception to in '05 and have come back swinging with one of the first genuine rock albums we've seen since Linkin Park's Meteora - not to mention a visual concept that'll knock your socks off.
In terms of lyricism and general musical maturity, My Chem has hit their peak form with Danger Days and brought us a truly enjoyable album that drags them back from the precipice of being doomed to a highschool audience forever - a precipice on which they had been teetering dangerously for some time.

Perhaps for many, especially the fans, not like this new work,
because they are not at all similar to comparison of The Black Parade, taking ortho ground in the sound, with less hard and more electronic.
This may disappoint many MCR fans because we've never seen that style, if there are songs that still has the hard sound that characterizes them, but as I said, went to a new realm of sound.
There is nothing wrong and is more than good, does not disappoint us but we must admit that we prefer hard and emotional style they have always had and hope that in future work to impress us again with better thematic and emotion in the sound.… Expand

Nov 26, 2010After MCR announced earlier this year that they were coming out with a new album, I made it top priority on my music list for 2010. This albumAfter MCR announced earlier this year that they were coming out with a new album, I made it top priority on my music list for 2010. This album gives a Chemical Romance scent, but something about it doesn't smell right. The assertiveness and gloomy lyrics appear to be missing on all fronts during the course of Danger Days, MCR showing that they really wanted to make a rock album; probably to try killing an image they never wanted to begin with. It's kind of sad though. MCR really is the cream of the crop when it comes to droopy, careless ballads. I would have loved to see MORE of that perfected in Danger Days. The lyrics and message are all good things in Danger Days -- but the delivery, and presentation are below the Black Parade.… Expand
May 4, 2011I like the music.. but the voice is just unbearable. Sorry, MCR. I will never be your fan. No matter how these pseudo "artistic" clips are, II like the music.. but the voice is just unbearable. Sorry, MCR. I will never be your fan. No matter how these pseudo "artistic" clips are, I just do not take it. Why should be a music album be designed like a comic book? OK, OK, Gerard Way draws comics. But there is one big BUT. It just does not belong together. It is a funny concept, but nothing more. And once again about the voice - I dislike it. It is clean, but harsh. Not very pleasant to hear. It is in a frequency that tears my ears. I am sorry for giving 1 point, but I have to.… Expand
