Reception

The Black Parade received generally favorable reviews from critics. Some of the most positive reviews came from All Music Guide, New Musical Express, IGN, and Rolling Stone.[19][7] Dan Martin from NME compared the album to Green Day's American Idiot, positing that "it's a piece of work that will challenge every preconception you ever had about the people who made it."[6] Ed Thompson of IGN stated, "The Black Parade is a rock and roll gem that celebrates everything that was over the top about the 1970s rock scene."[20] David Fricke of Rolling Stone praised the classic rock feel of the album.[7] Rolling Stone went on to rank The Black Parade #20 in its "Top 50 Albums of 2006" feature.[21] Spin magazine named it the 5th best album of 2006.[22] The All Music Guide (AMG) is a metadata database about music, owned by All Media Guide. ...

EW states that "On their third studio album, a musical H-bomb of an effort, the Jersey quintet combine the rock-opera pomp of Queen with the darker, dirtier tones of their screamo past: Call it a Bro-hemian Rhapsody. Even without its broad concept — a dying cancer patient seeks revenge and redemption — Parade stands as one of the most cohesive, engaging rock records of 2006." It ranks The Black Parade the third best record of the year, being surpassed only by Gnarls Barkley and TV on the Radio.[23]


The album wasn't without its share of criticism, and was panned by such publications as The Observer and Aversion. Stated Jamie Hodgson of The Observer, "...it reeks of a band with ideas above its station."[5] Matt Schild of Aversion thought the album was "over-the-top" and "lame".[4] Theon Weber of Stylus praised the album's use of Queen influences, but went on to summarize the album as "...a goofy record of bubblegum punk, with Queen lapping at its edges and enough good tracks to justify the smattering of empty screamfests."[24] Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ...


The album holds a 79/100 score based on 24 reviews at Metacritic, which equates to the site's categorization of "generally favorable reviews".[25] Metacritic is a website that collates reviews of music albums, games, movies, TV shows, DVDs and books. ...


Versions

There are two versions of The Black Parade that have the same tracks and album art. The difference is that one bears white text on a black background, while the other had black text on a white background. There is also a limited edition of the album, the product description for which is as follows:

"The Limited Edition special packaging features an 11-11/16" × 5-13/16", long skinny box with hinged lid, wrapped in black velveteen material, with an impressed design on the top. The 64-page bound paperback book inside the box is modeled after a Victorian-style photo album, and contains Gerard's drawings, making-of-the-album notes, and more."[26]

A clean version of The Black Parade was released on December 19, 2006, both in CD and digital download formats. However this version was only partly censored, they did not edit the track "Teenagers", or "This is How I Disappear", they did not take the word "S***" out, but pretty much all they did was take out the word "F***" they left all violent, and suidal references in, and on the hidden track "Blood" over when it says "F***" they put in a actual "Beep" sound.[27] The version of The Black Parade that was released in Japan contains more content than the other regular editions. It contains 14 tracks, but the 14th track contains the song "Heaven Help Us" (which was released with the single version of "Welcome to the Black Parade"), instead of the song "Blood". The Japanese version is also an Enhanced CD and has the music video of "Welcome to the Black Parade".[28] A radio edit is a remix of a musical performance to make it more suitable for broadcast to the general public via radio. ... is the 353rd day of the year (354th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
