MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE / The Black Parade (2006)

The immense power of this album stems from the paradoxically simple conceit that the process whereby life is mulled over, mourned, and punished on the deathbed of those afforded such a contemplative time is directly parallel to being brave enough to engage in a life of self-examination and change. You don’t need to be imminently dying to gaze across your own personal abyss and finally take on the weight of your mistakes—address your regrets head on. The crutch can be thrown away and seen as motivation instead of an easy escape.

"I've no right to be called by that name."

I think "Mama" is MCR's best song ever. It's so feckin' nutty with a wonderful guitar to kick.

This is easily their magnum opus.

4 Liza's out of 5 from me.
