Dead! bounces manically from Queen-like bluster to stylish punk-pop.
Teenagers is a grandiose grind, built on testosterone and T. Rex-styled guitars. I Don’t Love You opens like Coldplay’s Yellow, before turning into an anthem like Green Day’s Wake Me When September Ends.
(Producer Rob Cavallo, who worked on Green Day’s American Idiot, helps My Chemical Romance build a concept album that’s just as good.)
