For their third major label release, Fall Out Boy return as twice-minted multi-platinum celebrities and deftly deliver what they came to: A huge rock album by a huge rock band. Having already lost any shred of punkdom that the '00s strand of emo ever had, the Illinois quartet seems unfettered by their chosen genre's boundaries and dive headlong into a loud stew of affecting power pop, glam, and classic rock hooks. The debut single, "I Don't Care," reimagines "Spirit in the Sky" as an anthem for the skinny-jeans-and-guyliner set with scathing bon mots like "I don't care what you think as long as it's about me" courtesy of bassist-lyricist Pete Wentz. Singer-guitarist Patrick Stimp adds newly soulful and loose vocal phrasing to his usual arsenal of open-throated choruses-with particular strength on cuts such as "Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet" and "What a Catch, Donnie," a stringed power ballad that features guest appearances by Elvis Costello and Travis McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes. Also featuring guest appearances by Pharrell Williams and Debbie Harry, FOLIE A DEUX doesn't break the mold, but will remind everyone of why Fall Out Boy conquered the world in the first place.

I'm glad I did. It might not be what die hard fans of FOB were expecting and some do seem to dislike the change in direction however, on listening to the album a few times, I now have it on quite often. There is a lot of production on a couple of the songs (w.a.m.s being one) but I like it. I still can't catch every word that Stump sings and sometimes I have no idea what the hell the lyrics are supposed to mean, but for me, that is Fall Out Boy!
I think the fact that I have the songs stuck in my head hours later is also a good sign! 20 Dollar Nosebleed seems to be on repeat in my head quite a bit....
So, if you're going to buy this album, don't expect the Fall Out Boy of previous albums but don't knock them for trying something different!
I don't like the opener, Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes, very much but I certainly like the other tracks. Fall Out Boy experiment with different musical elements throughout Folie A Deux; from the strings in (Coffee's for Closers) to the numerous guest appearances and harmonies with Debbie Harry. The songs are catchy and fun. This is definitely not a "take me serously" album. There are flashes of the old Fall Out Boy via Pete's lyrics, but they all have an amusing spin on them. The music, as always, is impeccable and suits the lyrics very well.
My favourites are: Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On a Bad Bet and Tiffany Blews.
It's worth a listen to decide whether you like it or not. It's not From Under the Cork Tree #2, nor is it trying to chase mainstream audiences like Panic At The Disco's Pretty. Odd. did. Folie A Deux shows the polished, more mature Fall Out Boy. Although, admittedly, they clashed too many elements together, it works in a haphazard way. Good music, and not as ghastly as everyone makes it out to be.
