REVIEW: SONISPHERE 2011 [excerpt] ** TO CLEAR UP ANY RUMORS**

.....Second on the bill this evening is My Chemical Romance. They have had a lot of big singles and tonight’s set is basically a run through of them all. Despite the crowd seeming to enjoy their set, the empty space between songs was filled by chants, en masse, of ‘lin-kin park… lin-kin park’ which I imagine can’t be very inspiring. Pink of hair and tight of jean, Gerrard Way persevered through the set and ultimately the band were triumphant, however there was no mistaking the band of the night…[Linkin Park]

(translation below)

"Lo que más nos gusta es la energía de las fans después de como nos recibieron en Valencia hace dos semanas, estamos muy excitados con lo que pueda pasar hoy". Eso nos contaban 'My Chemical Romance' antes de su concierto en Madrid.

Pues tampoco faltó energía anoche: la de sus fans y la que descargaron ellos desde el primer momento sobre el escenario. 'My Chemical Romance' era el plato fuerte de la primera jornada del Dcode Festival, y cerca de 11.000 personas, según la organización, acudieron a escuchar sus canciones en las que hablan de tiempos oscuros y de héroes dispuestos a ganar a las sombras.

"Creo que nuestras canciones son lo más directo que podemos hacer para conectar con un ser humano. Eso es lo que significa para mí", nos contaba Gerard Way, vocalista del grupo.

Con cuatro discos en el mercado se han convertido en un referente mundial, con una música que unos describen como rock, otros pop y algunos punk y emo. Una mezcla con la que esperan seguir triunfando en el mundo de la música.

REVIEW (SPAIN - TRANSLATED):My Chemical Romance Levanta a los Jóvenes y Band of Horses a Los Modernos [excerpts]

original article:

My Chemical Romance Levanta a los Jóvenes y Band of Horses a Los Modernos
 
...Juntos y revueltos, las gafas de pasta y el pantalón caído han recalado este viernes en la jornada inaugural del primer DCode Festival de la historia, gracias a un público casi adolescente que ha brincado con My Chemical Romance y Sum 41 y a otro más talludito y refinado, atraído por Eels y Band of Horses.

...Su propuesta roquera enfocada al público más joven concuerda con la de otro de los grandes nombres del cartel, My Chemical Romance, considerada hasta hace poco una de las bandas paradigmáticas del estilo neogótico «emo». «Na Na Na» ha lanzado el espectáculo del grupo que, con tan sólo cuatro discos en el mercado, se ha convertido en un fenómeno mundial. Sus canciones engoladas hablan de tiempos oscuros y héroes dispuestos a vencer las sombras, como en «The Umbrella Academy», la exitosa colección de cómic creada por su cantante, Gerard Way.

...«Sing», «Welcome to the Black Parade» y «Famous Last Words» son algunos de los trallazos roqueros que la banda de New Jersey (EEUU) ha disparado esta noche, con eficacia y rotundidad. Otro cantar es lo que han ofrecido entre medias bandas auténticamente alternativas e independientes como Band of Horses e Eels, cuyos recientes conciertos en salas de Madrid dejaron muy buen sabor de boca y ganas de repetir.

My Chemical Romance raises the young and the Band of Horses 'modern'  

....Scrambled together and the horn-rimmed glasses and pants have fallen landfall on Friday on the opening day of the first DCode Festival of history, thanks to an almost adolescent audience has jumped by My Chemical Romance and Sum 41 and a more refined audience attracted by Eels and Band of Horses.

...His proposal focused on the rocker younger audience agrees with the other big names of the poster, My Chemical Romance, considered until recently one of the paradigmatic neo-Gothic style bands "emo." "Na Na Na" the show has launched the group with only four albums in the market, has become a worldwide phenomenon. His songs speak of dark times pompous and heroes willing to overcome the shadows, as in "The Umbrella Academy," the successful collection of comic created by singer Gerard Way.

..."Sing," "Welcome to the Black Parade" and "Famous Last Words" are some of the rockers that the band from New Jersey (USA) has shot tonight, effectively and emphatically. Another song is what they have offered in between truly alternative and independent bands like Band of Horses and Eels, whose recent concert halls of Madrid made ​​very good taste and desire to repeat.

REVIEW (SPAIN - TRANSLATED): Decode Festival: Lori Meyers golean a My Chemical ‘El Canto del Loco’ Romance **WARNING - NEGATIVE REVIEW**

*** OK I used Google Translate to translate this article, so that's why some parts don't make sense, but I think you can get the general idea this person is trying to get across about their opinion of MCR.***

note - 'El Canto del Loco' is a Spanish pop/rock band that this writer is trying to compare My Chemical Romance to.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE  

  
El grupo que menos cobró fue el que triunfó. No lo dice sólo este cronista: lo constatan 10.000 personas agitándose, botando, cantando a voz en cuello aquello de: “Qué puedo hacer por mejorar mi mundo que es mi realidad/ mi mundo que es mi realidad”. Lori Meyers, de Granada (ojo: equipo de Primera División), se llevaron la primera jornada del debutante festival madrileño DCode, que se celebra en Madrid en un escenario perfecto: el refrescante Complejo Deportivo Cantarranas de la Universidad Complutense. No lo tenía nada fácil el sexteto granadino. Se anunciaron como cabeza de cartel el grupo de Nueva Jersey My Chemical Romance. Otros estaban convencidos de que el plato fuerte eran Band of Horses, de Seattle. Algunos incluso apuntaban a Eels. Pero no: Noni y sus compadres de Granada les superaron a todos.

Pero antes conviene pedir perdón por si alguien se siente ofendido por lo siguiente: My Chemical Romance es como El Canto del Loco, pero con un cantante con la cabellera tintada de rojo. Teníamos la sensación de que eran un grupo grande estos My Chemical. Les dejaron la mejor hora (23.00) y el escenario más completo, pero su directo gravitó entre lo tosco y los lugares comunes del raca-raca. Comenzaron su actuación con el sencillo de su último disco, Na na na, una canción más cerca del punk festivo de Offspring que del dramatismo emo de sus anteriores trabajos. En realidad, My Chemical Romance ofrecen rock pijo para adolescentes. Y tómese esta definición de forma descriptiva y no peyorativa. El grupo, en directo, no da para más. Estuvo una hora en el escenario (con temas como Planetary (go!) o Destroya), con las primeras filas repletas de menores de edad, que se dieron cuentan de que su líder, Gerard Way, no está tan bueno como en las fotografías de promoción, y de que el grupo, en general, peca de monolítico.

Hubo momentos de incertidumbre en la actuación de My Chemical Romance: unas veces parecía que iba a salir Rihanna a acompañarles, y otras veías muy cerca que se arrancasen con una versión yanqui de Zapatillas. Y lo más desconcertante del asunto es que las dos posibilidades parecían más seductoras que lo que estaba ocurriendo en el escenario.

"The group was charged less succeeds. Not only tells this reporter: what was found 10,000 people waving, bouncing, singing loudly that of "What I can do to improve my world that is my reality / my world is my reality"
Lori Meyers, Granada (note: Premier League team), took the first day of rookie DCode Madrid festival, being held in Madrid in a perfect setting: the refreshing Cantarranas Sports Complex at the Complutense University. I do not have anything easy sextet Granada. Were announced as headliners New Jersey group My Chemical Romance. Others were convinced that the main course were Band of Horses, Seattle. Some even pointed to Eels. But no: Noni and its cronies of Granada surpassed them all.

But before I should apologize if anyone is offended by the following: My Chemical Romance is like El Canto del Loco, but with a singer with his hair dyed red. We felt we were a large group of these My Chemical. They let the best time (23.00) and the more complete scenario, but its direct gravitated between coarse and common places, Raca Raca. They began their performance with the single from his latest album, Na na na, a punk song festival closer to the drama of emo Offspring of his previous work. Actually, My Chemical Romance offer posh teen rock. And take this definition of descriptive rather than pejorative. The group live, do not give more. Spent an hour on stage (with themes such as Planetary (go!) or Destroy), with the front rows filled with children, they realized that their leader, Gerard Way, is not as good as the photographs of promotion, and the group in general is guilty of monolithic

There were moments of uncertainty in the performance of My Chemical Romance: sometimes seemed that he was going to accompany Rihanna, and others close to you saw that it has started with a version Yankee Slippers. And most puzzling thing is that the two possibilities seemed more attractive than what was happening on stage."

    ARTICLE: SPIN'S 30 Best Summer Tours

    Blink-182 / My Chemical Romance


    Dates: August 5 through October 15
    Price: $20
    Opening Acts: Manchester Orchestra, Rancid, Matt & Kim

    Why You Should Go: Because… dudes and dudettes, it's Blink-182, which is slang for "ridiculous fun," and their headlining slot on the annual Honda Civic Tour is the first chance to hear material from their first new album in a decade, set to drop later this year. The songs have a "stadium rock sensibility," singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge recently told SPIN. "The new stuff builds a lot more. The songs have intros, crescendos, and things that lend themselves to great lighting and loud volume. It's not orthodox punk at all." The reunited trio also tapped some A-list openers -- My Chemical Romance? Matt & Kim? Why wouldn't you go?
