Gerard Way’s solo album is out today (9/30) and it’s a passion project that he said was inspired by artists like David Bowie and Britpop era bands like Blur, Gang of Four, and Pulp. I’ve been listening to it all morning and it’s pretty excellent. Lead off single “Action Cat” is a good example of what he’s going for here. This is different than My Chemical Romance, no screamo here. Britpop and glam rock influences abound, but it feels very much like a proper, focused album from Way. Critics seem to agree as it has great reviews and an 83/100 on Metacritic right now.
Is anyone else interested in what Gerard Way has to offer post-MCR?
