For the life of me, I can't understand why it's so cool to hate on MCR. Maybe it's the makeup or the fans but, you know, their last album was as big as it was for a reason and, frankly, they're great at what they do. To tide their fans over until a follow-up, the band has released an impressively comprehensive two-DVD set that basically chronicles MCR's existence.
Their angsty teenage appeal predominates in the video diary portion, as the likeable members talk about their lives, the saving grace that music has been for them, how everyone can be "messed up" and that life is tough, etc. It makes a lot of sense, considering the emotional ties their fans seem to have with their music.
Equally sweet for fans is the live performance disc with a professionally filmed full-length concert, special TV appearances, music videos and some neat little making-of features.
More than anything else, Murder Scene portrays these guys as genuine, intelligent dudes who give a shit about what they're doing. Like 'em or hate 'em, given that there's a demand for a collection like this, MCR aren't going to disappear.
