I’m catching up on my ARTV-core lol. But really my full 40 minute reaction and review is on my YouTube channel

This album is massive not only from a sonic standpoint but through phenomenal writing and songs that are passionate and bombastic beyond belief. This album is a phenomenal statement that shows that emo music can be done right and it isn’t always a pissing contest of who can be the most edgy
There are many albums that change people. Some point to "Dark Side Of The Moon" or "Thriller" or many other great records. But for me, it's MCR's crazy, explosive, off the wall and perfectly intense tale of woe and death that changed something. Maybe in me, maybe in the world, and possibly both.

Favorite Jams: Everything (Especially Mama, Sleep, This Is How I Disappear)

Lest Favorite: Disenchanted
This album means a lot to me. It might not be perfect but it helped me in a way no other album ever did.
No other emo album can compare to "The Black Parade", in my opinion, simply because of this one's ambition. With a perfectly executed concept, phenomenal writing and a great collection of songs, this album changed me so much from my first listen! But it's really the emotion that other emo albums can't grasp quite as well.

Fav Tracks: Welcome To The Black Parade, Cancer, Mama, House Of Wolves, Famous Last Words, I Don't Love You, Teenagers, This Is How I Disappear

I fell for it. Fuck this shit. Sounds like Queen and any generic pop punk band thrown into a blender and then made even more embarrassingly childish and "edgy".
