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]

Nov 22, 2010Blown Away. That pretty much sums up my reaction to this album. To be honest I was not expecting such a well-rounded, brilliant album. But they delivered. Hands Down.
The Only Hope For Me Is You
This album thoroughly deserves a 10/10. Right up there with the Black Keys as best album of the year… Expand
Nov 24, 2010Regardless of how much I love a guy with insomniac eyes and a funerary demeanor, gone are the days of MCR with lank black hair, bulletproof vests, and weepy breakup songs, and here are the days of leather junker jackets, comic-book colors, and kick-your-ass rock suitable even for people who own no black clothing and have never worn eyeliner.
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.
Mar 29, 2011The only thing that could lead the rocker's mind away from enjoying this album is if it's strictly compared to My Chemical Romance's earlier albums. Danger Days has a mind of it's own. It's a new, modern sound that's influences come from many different ages of music. It's impressive when a band takes on a new style and it works. The album goes from old school rock sounds to 30 Seconds to Mars-esque spacey songs. The theme of the album captures a fun, fast paced kinda mood and the difference between Danger Days and the old albums is that it actually puts you in a good mood rather than bringing you down. Teen angst days are over, there is a higher demand in good music now a day and Danger Days definitely meets the standards of modern punk-rock.… Expand
Jan 5, 2013Changing your sound is a brave move and it doesn't often come off very well, but this isn't always the case with Danger Days, which provides highs that reach MCR's peaks and lows that define their lows. The sound change followed directly from the mega-hit 'The Black Parade' which is one of the bravest changes in history, meaning the band was putting a lot on the line, but with 2/3s of the album being very good and worth listening to and the other 1/3 being filler, although it is hit and miss, it is still definitely an album that is worth a listen.… Expand
Feb 9, 2011I must admit, I was a huge fan of My Chemical Romance's second album, ""Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge." Normally I'm underwhelmed by a following album, but "The Black Parade" proved me wrong.
With Danger Days, I was expecting another theatrical styled emo/rock album and was surprised by the change. At first I disliked the change - I missed the strong guitar riffs such as in "Dead!" and the powerful vocals emphasised in the past album. Whilst the lyrics are centered around an apocalyptic future - the songs somehow feel upbeat. However my opinion changed after a couple playthroughs of Danger Days. The songs are definitely catchy and enjoyable. My favourites being "SING" and "Planetary [Go!]." My only complaint would be that the album seems to fizzle out towards the end. Whilst MCR's style has changed - the energy is still there. A fun album, just not as great as their previous.… 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, 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
