Release Date: 2013 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Overall Conventional Weapons is an excellent release with some really tight songs to show how much they are to being one of the most succesful rock bands of the 21st century. Hate them or not. They are by far one of the most influential groups of rock.

In 2009,My Chemical Romance recorded Conventional Weapons but then decided to scrapped the album to record Danger Days. Now in 2012-2013 they released 10 songs in total for 5 months with and a side and b side track. Was this good for them or a bad mistake? My views are this was an excellent choice for them to release these songs. Now i didn't i hate Danger Days. I thought it was Decent. It good some good material on their and the lyrics were great but it was missing a lot of theatrics and energy like their previous material brought. Conventional Weapons is filled different styles and emotions. Some songs are hard rocking with a punk vibe that makes you want to rock out,other songs are ballads with a acoustic vibe to it, to feel the emotion of Gerard Way's voice. Each number has it's appeal to their other albums. Number 1- 3 Cheers/Danger Days..Number 2-The Black Parade/Danger Days.. Number 3-The Black Parade..Number 4-Danger Days... Number 5-Three Cheers/The Black Parade. Not every track is excellent but i do think is every track is good and much better then Danger Days material. I feel that My Chemical Romance is back in the game. With their huge hype in the mid 2000s.

Now let's talk about the instruments in the series- Conventional Weapons is filled with awesome guitar work by Ray Toro and Frank Iero i love the solos and licks off this album i find it to be very catchy and enjoyable to my ears i The vocals by Gerard Way is great too. My favorite vocal performance that he did on the album was The Light Behind Your Eyes. A song about his daughter Bandit. It also has some great basslines by Mikey Way especially in the song Tommorow's Money and let's not forget Bob Bryar! Listening to CW makes me miss him so bad. I love how this album is produced perfectly with Bob Bryar's drumming.

Now my favorite number? If i had to say?! It would be Number 1 because Boy Division is one hell of a song and fits 3 Cheers era perfectly and i love the the overall instrumentation and the lyrics are fantastic! And i love the bassline and guitar solo from Tommorow's Money ./ My second favorite would be Number 3 because of the emotional energy they put in the songs especially The Light Behind Your Eyes it gets me everytime. My 3rd favorite is Number 15 because it's really catchy and the choruses are fantastic.My 4th favorite is Number 2 because the songs are catchy but kinda different and overproduced but still good songs more of an 80s vibe i guess. My leas favorite is Number 4 because i didn't really get what they where doing? I do like Kiss The Ring because of the guitar playing but the vocals are weak on both tracks.
