5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Upbeat and Fun Treasure of an Album, 15 Dec 2008
By

This review is from: Folie A Deux (Deluxe) (Audio CD)
For this album Fall Out Boy have definately verged towards the Pop side of Pop/Punk, Pete Wentz still delivers very quotable lyrics with great hooks and Patrick Stump's music has definately been influenced by his 80's childhood and also, especially in the latter half of the album, a R&B influence. The first 7 tracks will sound familiar to fans of Infinity on High but are great in themselves. "Disloyal Order of Water Buffalos" is a great intro to the album which seems to borrow certain melodic traits from The Who's Baba O'Riley. Then follows the glam stomp of 'I Don't Care', the first release from the album, and dizzy thrills of 'She's My Winona', but topping the lot is the gloriously anthemic 'America's Suitehearts'."Why-why-why won't the world revolve around me?" screams Stump before a slick key change heralds a chorus so big it probably requires its own postcode. "Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet" has a 80's style synth to it and "The (Shipped) Gold Standard" is THE skip to track of the album that a Justin Timberlake-like falsetto dominates in. "(Coffees For Closers)" is defined by it's strings outro and following suit, but in a very different tack, is 'What A Catch, Donnie', which finds the group gathering round the piano with buddies Elvis Costello and Travis McCoy for a moment of Elton John-style pop bliss. One wonders whether an entirely separate vocal studio was required for the harmonic textures that spill over from the dizzying rock opera of '27'. 'You're a classic, like a little black dress,' runs 'Tiffany Blews'startlingly suave refrain, which is slightly ruined by Lil' Waynes incoherent warbling at the end which sounds as if it was recorded on an answering machine! As for 'w.a.m.s.' and 'West Coast Smoker', they combine extravagant orchestral drama with a sleek, hooky momentum and the latter has a rather understated appearence by Debbie Harry. The "Beat It" cover seems a bit tacked on but will be appreciated by fans who didn't purchase **** earlier this year which had it as a bonus track. The Bonus Tracks themselves are fun and in my opinion worth the purchase of the Deluxe Box.
Overall this is a fine album that will please newer fans and first time listeners alike, but long time fans might be a bit disappointed by the lack of songs of the like found on "Take This To Your Grave" and their most successful album the double platinum selling "From Under the Cork Tree".

Fall Out Boy is my favourite band and I love the new sound on this record, the lyrics are still meaningful and all the songs are catchy, Patrick's voice is even more beautiful than on every other records !

This album is EXCELLENT. So many great songs and a lot of fun too. Fall Out Boy have outdone themselves with this new Album. You won't regret buying it. I live in the USA and had it shipped so I could get the Bonus material, it is all worth it. BUY IT!!!

Personally, this is Fall Out Boys bets album to date - sure, theyve got crackers on all of their albums, but this one tops them all.
ALL catchy, quick to start songs, witty lyrics galore - without sounding too pretentious, this really is an excellent album, and I dont know how I went for so long not realising it was already out.
