Review: My Chemical Romance CD features techno sound

Courtney Woodworth, Circulation manager

Following the huge success of The Black Parade, My Chemical Romance released their fourth full-length album on Nov. 22, 2010 entitled Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
The album name sets it up to be an epic CD, and it truly is.
Danger Days is a concept album set in post apocalyptic 2019, where the Killjoys — the alter egos of the band — try to take down an evil corporation.
The premise is far-fetched, but something you would expect from MCR.
Their new sound has followed the way of other alternative bands with a more techno feel; however, Gerard Way’s voice is still incredibly unique.
Not only that but, MCR delivers phenomenal lyrics that hold great imagery and stories.
The band pokes fun of the vampire phenomena with “Vampire Money,” and stays true to their roots with the catchy, revamped, punk song “Destroya.”
Long-time fans will be shocked by the new sound, but will enjoy it nonetheless.
Overall, Danger Days does not disappoint.
My Chemical Romance will perform at The Midland on Dec. 8, 2010 as the headlining act for The Night The Buzz Stole Christmas Part 2.
