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.
Alternative Press

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.

bullets feel a bit out of place in mcr’s discography. it’s more aggressive, messier, and imo worse than any of the other albums, but a bad album by mcr standards is still a good album by any other band’s standards. there are a few lackluster moments on this but this also contains some of the band’s best songs
faves: headfirst , early sunsets, this mirror, vampires, our lady
least faves: best day ever, cubicles, skylines


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.


This album is truly awful. I don’t think there is a single part of this album that works. The only positive is that it only could get better from this point

Humble beginnings man... this sounds like a horrible garage demo tape with members practicing to make a real album


There's something here, but its so unrefined that I can't see myself ever revisiting this ever again.


This album is definitely the odd one out of the other studio albums, this is a much more raw and messy project then the other much cleaner projects. Although this album does have some highs, I felt like the ideas and passions MCR were trying to incorporate in their debut album were pushed back by the production of the album. I love the raw energy of the album and its pretty catchy and hardcore.


I doesn’t have any idea in it. It’s just loud bad recornding with no sense. It’s a huge mess
