I can't claim to have ever been a huge My Chemical Romance fan (not through any active dislike, just indifference) but after hearing some positive noise about Gerard Way's new solo venture I thought I'd give it a shot.
Hesitant Alien, I found, is a great pop rock record, often sporting quite a British sound. The mood varies throughout, but is united by an evocative shoegazy production and nicely thrown-together songs.
At the time of writing I'm a little enamoured with Drugstore Perfume in all it's Jesus and Mary Chain wistfulness. More of this please, Gee.
