It's a real pleasure to find something NEW, GOOD, and ORIGINAL these days on the music scene. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's noticed that most bands these days are cheap rip-offs of each other, with few, if any, having any semblance of originality (or talent).

I'd been hearing "Welcome to the Black Parade" from My Chemical Romance on the radio for a while, and liked it enough to pick up the CD. Color me impressed! While that track is definitely among the best, I can't say that it's my favorite, as there are several other strong contenders. They have a kick-ass sound, skill and complexity in their performance, and some excellent writing for both melody and lyrics. If I had to put them into a genre box, perhaps metal with soul? Like any true talent, they defy easy categorization.

Being jaded and tired of the retread-world makes it hard to enjoy much. Thanks for rattling the bars of my cage, MCR. It isn't often that I'm pleasantly surprised, even inspired. Music is a light in the darkness.
