    Although I couldn't quite hear it clearly with my laptop speaker while fans are running in my room (my headset is bust), it seems like it's one of their darkest songs since The Black Parade. It doesn't seem like quite a return to form, but it seems like it's getting close. Definitely not as poppy as Danger Days. It has a bit of a punk feel but is also kinda slow, though not quite in a power ballady way. This will need a few more listens before I can accurately judge it, though it seems to be an interesting song.

    PS - The ending sounds like that of "I Never Told You What I Do For A Living" from Three Cheers, probably deliberately so. If they return to their post-hardcore roots, then Hell will have definitely frozen over.

    I liked this a whole hell of a lot more than I expected to.

    Yeah, it's definitely an interesting direction. I am not enthousiastic about the song as a whole, but the 'she will always be the whore' part and the ending are great.

    The song has the potential to be a grower and should be even more powerful in the context of an album. (we can hope, right? )

    I've never been a MCR fan, though, I liked few songs here and there, and this one will most likely be one of them. Interesting song choice for a "return", actually making me interested in a potential new album.

    The mixing is terrible; can barely hear anything, and his voice is still nails on a chalkboard to me.

    reminds me of AFI at times. Agree the mix terrible. They mixed it themselves...and maybe shouldn't have haha. Wanna hear it live as such. First record is still the best. Funny, emo horror punk. Second is ok. Everything else can go in the dumpster. Gerard is a badass comic book writer.

    He's probably making a hipsterish statement, given that TBP was their mainstream breakthrough (Three Cheers got the ball rolling, but TBP solidified their fame). I, personally, had mixed feelings towards TBP when it came out due to the more theatrical style and the inclusion of four power ballads (the one I hated most being "I Don't Love You", which turned my dad against MCR and was sadly one of the hits, though thankfully not released as a single in the US). It also didn't help that, in addition to the album largely straying from punk in favor of a Tim Burton musical, it quickly overshadowed Three Cheers when it came out. Three Cheers was one of the albums that helped me survive high school.

    I'm one of those weirdos who prefers Danger Days to The Black Parade. Danger Days is so much fun.
