MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE / Conventional Weapons (Number One-Five) (2012-2013)

Releasing songs monthly on vinyl sort of pisses me off. These are supposedly the link between The Black Parade and Danger Days, but the only truth to that is a shared lyrical refrain in a vaguely Days-ish song. Otherwise, these are front-packed with kick-ass songs that hearken more to the Revenge era than anything. There’s a bland track or two but they don’t bring down what is on all other accounts a fun collection with miles more meaning and verve than Days pretended to muster. These might get a CD release, and as good as they are, probably aren't worth buying twice. Wait, or burn (legally).
