Drowned in Sound
This record’s undeniable fragmentation is displayed in the fact that every song can happily stand alone and be played on repeat - but only if you wish to attain the same level of mental torture and distress that MCR are clearly at.

I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love is a relatively makeshift album, with moments that feel almost haphazard, but some of that chaotic sensibility lends the album—most of which was produced by Thursday’s Geoff Rickly—its charm.

The Guardian
Nil points for urban credibility, then, but top marks for self-absorbed "emo" angst, as set out on this debut.

I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love falls short of exceptional, but it's a noteworthy, generally respectable debut for the New Jersey combo.

Poor production, lack of refinement & inconsistent vocals make it difficult to hear the ambition & potential contained deep within.
Yep, thats right. The only album that deserves a 0/100, from the same guys who made the black parade and three cheers for sweet revenge, I'm not joking. I am being serious, serious, this is putrid. Please delete this album from your history of existing Mr. Gerard Way and I will officially say that you're band is perfect, here's an offer.

Bullets is raw, it's aggressive, Gerard's vocals are rough and the album is very messy and feels more like a garage demo...and those are all positives stfu.
I'm still trying to understand how they go from this Crap to Three Cheers. Wow!

Honey, This Mirror...would be amazing if they had redone it, actually this whole album would be better if they redone it.

Tracks like "Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough for the Two of Us" and "Our Lady of Sorrows" were definite highlights for me. However, they weren't strong enough to carry the entire record over into "GOOD" territory. MCR's rough debut is simply...decent.

I really think that this album could have been a lot better if they hadn’t recorded it while Gerard had a fucking dental abscess. This is just really messy, and not in a good way. Honey This Mirror and Vampires Will Never Hurt You are amazing tracks and the vocal high point, and seemingly the only well-produced tracks. Drowning Lessons and Headfirst For Halos are produced okay, and Drowning Lessons has some great guitar riffs, but is overall unimpressive. Headfirst For Halos used to be my ... read more
