Excellent song. It's so nostalgic. Gerard's vocals are mixed weirdly though, they sound like they are in the background.

Song rules. I'm so pumped up for a new MCR album if one is on the horizon.

Agreed the vocal mixing is a bit strange though; only thing holding this back from being perfect because it's otherwise sort of one of the better songs they've written?? Feels weird to type that in 2022.

I’m with y’all, the vocal mix makes this seem like a live recording produced to sound like it’s not.

Song is really good and would benefit from better production maybe.

"Agreed the vocal mixing is a bit strange though; only thing holding this back from being perfect because it's otherwise sort of one of the better songs they've written?? Feels weird to type that in 2022."

Definitely bold, but I kinda dig that they muddied up the vocals a bit for a more live/raw sound. Fits the song style that is a bit darker and heavier in the way that their debut was, definitely darker/heavier than anything off welcome to the black parade (and danger days).

Same. It was driving me nuts. I thought of "High Hopes" by post-Waters Pink Floyd, but I'm pretty sure there's a closer match than that.

It probably triggers that "I'VE HEARD THIS BEFORE" feeling because it's just not very original.

This song and the production, and his vocals, and everything. I'm usually more concise about my descriptions and explanations for why things are so good, but this is just so solid and nostalgic and everything. run on sentences galore. so much energy.

Really cool song with questionable mixing. So glad they stuck to their roots and didn't drop some bland, soulless attempt at a pop hit.

I'd take it over NANANANANANANANA or whatever that shit song was. I've only ever heard 30 seconds of that song in my entire life and it still haunts me sometimes

Also not super famous but I'm getting some strong AFI vibes, feels like it wouldn't be entirely out of place on Sing the Sorrow or Burials

More I listen, the more I like it.

Sounds like a Bullets track with the polish and aggression of a Three Cheers track as well as a dash of theatricality from a Black Parade track without overdoing it. Wasn't sure about the production at first but I like it. It adds a bit of character and rawness.

Song comes off as a"we havent written in a song for a long time so we tried to fit in everything what people want to hear from us" to me.
No idea what they're trying to accomplish here. Really cool atmospheric intro, very awkward transition to a messy sounding generic rock chorus, a weird and unimpressive post-hardcoreish? bridge. Execution is surprisingly decent but I don't like the song.

It's not the first time I've seen the bullets comparison and yeah that album isn't immaculately produced either but in no way does this hit in any way close to that. I agree it's them trying to hit all the notes that people would want from them in 2022 but it makes it so forgettable in the process.

To each their own. Don't get me wrong it's a fine song, I was just expecting something a little more from them given their pedigree.
