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.
I'm still trying to understand how they go from this Crap to Three Cheers. Wow!
Best and ONLY good song is: Demolition Lovers (fight me)

I hated it so much that I thought I would never listen to it again. But a few weeks later, a random song from this album spontaneously got stuck in my head, even though I had only heard ... read more

Damn, this was a waste of time
Beautifully forgettable, weak performances to the point where it's annoying
What a snoozefest...

Best: ...

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
