I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
Favorite Track:Demolition Lovers
i love this album. i basically measure lengths of time by this album at this point, ngl.
the time it takes me to carve and sand a full set of sollux cosplay horns is apparently
exactly equal to one listen of Bullets. i think that's pretty neat, personally. just thought I'd share.
anyway alternative methods of timetelling aside, what's more special than the way a band's first album sounds?
it's raw, it's unrefined, it was made in a basement recording studio,
there's a song about vampires... what's not to love. plus! houdini's on the cover.
Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Favorite Track: Hang 'Em High
okay picking a fave song here was way too hard but emo cowboy is the vibe i'm feeling at the time of writing
so it's what i'm going with and if it changes, i'll change it. anyway what is there to say? is three cheers. is revenge.
the helena video Looks Like That. prison is Like That. emo perfection distilled. not much to say that hasn't been said!
The Black Parade
Favorite Track: Famous Last Words
i am starting to regret the choice to include a favorite song per album because this is too difficult. honorable mentions: the end., house of wolves, mama, and disenchanted.
the black parade! the hits keep coming. classic album after classic album. good job boyz. anthemic, aesthetic as fuck, famous last words and infamous first notes.
this album? fucks. an emo staple. i have a black parade shirt from hot topic that I chopped the sleeves off of in a fit of unsupervised mania and i don't regret it. it's like my favorite shirt.
this is a minor tangent but I went to a hot topic the other day (jan 2020) and they had like six MCR shirts, but they were not on display and were buried underneath other unrelated shirts at the very bottom of the shelves.
they had a display with a breaking benjamin shirt, but not one with MCR anything. no offense to BB fans whatsover but what the fuck
Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys
Favorite Track: DESTROYA
LOUDER THAN GOD'S REVOLVER AND TWICE AS SHINY
man, what can I even say about this. it's colorful as hell, it's so High Concept, everyone looks SO GOOD... it slaps.
the world that they've built with this album and the related media is just so full and vibrant and I'm fucking in love with it.
remind me to rant about me and my sib's killjoy sona duo sometime okay. 10/10 would eat this album. it just, it just fucks ok.
i'm getting too excited thinking about danger days actually. hold on
The Mad Gear and Missile Kid
Favorite Track: Mastas of Ravenkroft
THIS is the only music that matters in all of life. music by a fictional band, made to be the music the killjoys are listening to while rolling around in the trans am? this is SICK as HELL. it's short-fast-and-loud punky, it's
lore-friendly while also being relatable to the rest of us?? what more could you possibly need. (i need a copy of the physical release or I will roam the earth as a ghost after I die, haunting everyone who does own it.)
Favorite Track: Boy Divison
man. conventional weapons... the beauty of it all. the most heartwrenching two songs being on the same part, the song called gun not being on a part with a gun for a cover, make room!!!'s entire existence....
this is a beautiful taste of something else from these dudes. to me, teenagers always felt like it belonged in this crew. dunno what it is about it.
