100th review, let’s do this!

Almost like a final request on someone’s death bed, this album covers all the things we wish we could’ve done with the time that we lost where we reach a point of no return for all our mistakes, where apologies amount to nothing with the damage we’ve caused. And on the inverse, there are also the things we wish we could’ve pursued instead of wasting our times on pointless bouts, learning that moving on is often the best thing we can ... read more

Burn Pygmalion is a unique record in that I am more captivated by the messages and the lyricism of the record than I am about the sounds presented on the record itself.

The only thing that stops this record from hitting that perfect score is the lack of exciting instrumentation to keep the listener locked in all the way to the end. In all honesty, I barely made it through the album the first few times I gave it a spin as the music can be boiled down to pretty 8-bit aesthetics with poetry (as ... read more

In an alternate reality where My Chemical Romance caved into the pressure of releasing more TBP sounding records, Conventional Weapons would've been the next logical step for the band's progress in their career.

Full of catchy riffs and fun moments, the 'album' is a great in-between TBP and DD, providing a good transition from the darker themes and sounds from TBP to the sillier, brighter pop inspired material off DD. However, whilst this album does scratch that itch for die-hard fans of MCR, ... read more
