Album Review

Leave it to My Chemical Romance to call their second full live album — and their second live release during The Black Parade era — The Black Parade Is Dead! Unlike 2007's mini-album Live and Rare, which patched together performances from MCR's fall 2006/winter 2007 dates in the U.K. and Europe, The Black Parade Is Dead! is a lavish CD/DVD affair chronicling two performances: the CD captures the band's October 7, 2007, Mexico City date — their last as the Black Parade — while the DVD features video of that show as well as their October 24, 2007, date at Maxwell's in their home state of New Jersey. The Black Parade Is Dead!'s grandiosity is only fitting, considering how elaborate The Black Parade was, and also fittingly, the Mexico City show is a song-for-song performance of that album — the only difference is "The Black Parade Is Dead," where Gerard Way announces to the audience that this is "the last performance of The Black Parade forever!" As on The Black Parade, the highlights happen when My Chemical Romance make these songs about death sound especially lively and theatrical. "Dead!" sounds especially searing, the satirical strut of "Teenagers" has an extra swagger, and the vaudevillian unnamed fan favorite closing track — now known as "Blood" — has an even more mischievous spring in its step, while hearing the audience sing back the words to "Welcome to the Black Parade" and "Mama" adds to their resonance. The Maxwell's date, which the band played to a very limited crowd of about 200 or so fans, draws just over half its set list from The Black Parade but also touches on Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge peaks like "Helena," "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)," and "Thank You for the Venom." Even if it seems thorough to the point of being overdone, The Black Parade Is Dead! is a completely appropriate — and fan-pleasing — final nail in The Black Parade's coffin. [The Black Parade Is Dead! was also released in a clean version, with explicit content removed.]

Glorious ashes

Though the Black parade may be dead, this album is showcase to a band with true talent and potential, considering, this is indeed a showcase of their live ability after just three albums, then it looks as if their music is set to only get better. This album, in my opinion, is better than the original studio album of the Black parade. The live version seems to have more depth, more emotion, than could be expressed on a studio track. Here, lead singer, Gerard Way, seems to pack nearly every song with both grandiose ambition and raw emotion, turning what where in some cases almost "fillers" of the studio version of the Black parade album, into true gems in their own right, this non more noticeable than on the track "sleep". The songs from the Mexico recordings seem to possess more depth than in their original form, new distinct piano chords rising above the other instruments on occasion, providing an emotional and atmospheric backdrop for Way's vocals. When looking to the other members of MCR on this album, all members (Mikey way on Bass, Frank Iero & Ray Toro on Guitars, completed by Bob Bryar on drums) seem at the top of their game, the soaring sounds of the studio version lived up to and in some cases exceeded. The live in New Jersey show MCR at their core, not the "emo" suicide cult they are branded by the British press, but a sonic blast of post-punk guitars, sweat and blood, something people familiar with their works other than the black parade should already be more than aware of. Whilst on the NJ tracks, Way's vocals can sound somewhat strained or tired at times, it is in it's own way refreshing, putting a more human face to the band, evidence there are still humans composing the noise here and not some immense glammed up chart topper dictated by a faceless record company. All in all, the Black parade is dead! shows us how MCR have developed as a Band since the era of "three cheers for sweet revenge" a sort of documentary to their evolution and how their roots still remain at their hearts, within the grandiose stage sets and the immense ambitions. Top 5 tracks (to me) are: 1.Cancer (Mexico) - a Beautiful rendition, the raw emotion of the song overpowering and seemingly felt from the heart (10/10) 2. I don't love you (Mexico) - heartfelt, and yet, at places, almost blistering. A song that seems to encapsulate the size of the power of the band. (10/10) 3. Famous last words (Mexico) - Evidence to their ability to reach out to their listeners, the song is grand and sweeping and at times threatens to have itself sung by the crowd louder than Way himself. 4. Untitled (New Jersey) - A glimpse at what is to come, and possibly a diamond in the rough, this song returns to MCR's heavier and more raw roots, the song seeming to encapsulate the packed and volatile crowd.(9/10) 5. You know what they do to guys like us in prison (New Jersesy) - A trip back to 2004's "Three cheers to sweet revenge" this song seems to both enthral the crowd with it's raw energy and power, but also dispel the press paranoia surrounding them, the band clearly enjoying themselves, their fans around them, and their music. Truly and essential buy for anyone who enjoys MCR and also a highly recommended one for new-timers. However, this album avoids the 5 star for one simple reason, no songs form the admittedly patchy, but still gem filled debut album "I brought you my bullets you brought me your love" album, a frustrating feel for long-term fans that have been listening since long before the band-wagon surge of the Black parade.


Formed: 11 September 2001 in Newark, NJ

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With their emo-punk songwriting, theatrical vocals, and neo-goth appearance, My Chemical Romance rose from the East Coast underground to the forefront of modern rock during the early 2000s. In keeping with the tragic element of the group's best-known singles — including "Helena," "I'm Not OK (I Promise)," and "Welcome to the Black Parade" — My Chemical Romance has roots in catastrophe, as frontman Gerard Way decided to form the band after watching the World Trade Center collapse on September...
