Great album. What sets it apart from many albums of the time that were just copycats are Gerard Way's ability to create incredible melodies, sung or screamed, and the band's craftmanship.
I am unable to listen to just one song, every song is wonderfully meant to be in the context of the record, contributing to a whole mood of "I'm fucked up and angry, I need to headbang and sing my lungs out of these choruses".
After a couple of listens I still feel like some parts totally rock, but I am still not sold on several transitions in the song. Some Nine Inch Nails, some disco, falsettos and ABBA... It doesn't feel like 9 minutes long, which is nice, but coming from Wilson I expected better transitions, and the lyrics are so bluntly obvious that I had to stop paying attention to them.
It's an interesting and unexpected mix, to say the least
