Since the release of Take This to Your Grave in May 2003, Fall Out Boy seemed splashed across the concert listing pages of every fishwrap from Bakersfield to Buffalo. Still, they found time to record this tide-me-over acoustic EP. "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy" gets the unplugged treatment, and though their titles are ultimately more memorable than the new songs themselves, "It's Not a Side Effect of the Cocaine, I Am Thinking It Must Be Love," and particularly "Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner" are filled with the rousing vocals and emo-inflected sonic heartbreak that made Grave so memorable. The band's rhythm section is jobless for My Heart Will Always Be, until their ambitious cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart," which wisely layers the original's memorable bassline under FOB's normal warm urgency. The tenor of the song changes, certainly — the clean cut kids in Fall Out Boy might've had a few prom dates break up with them over the years, but they're not going to access Ian Curtis' broken emotions and fatalism. They don't try. It's just a nice cover to flesh out the EP, adding a bit of look-back cred while stitching another heart on to the sleeve. In addition to the music, Fall Out fans will enjoy My Heart Will Always Be's DVD portion, which includes videos, more acoustic performances, a fan photo gallery, and the usual jumble of behind the scenes footage and band-related factoids.
Some songs are okay ...
If you are new to the FOB music, you should start by From Under the Cork Tree or Take This to Your Grave. My Heart Is The Worst Kind Of Weapon was ok, so as It's Not A Side Effect Of The Cocaine ... For Grand Theft Autumn and Nobody Puts Baby In The Cornor, they should have done an effort and written other songs. And it's not really a FOB album, It's mostly Patrick and his guitar. Overall, 4 stars because of the first and secound song.
tis a pretty good little acoustic cd
this is a pretty good cd if you like punk in an acoustic form kinda i guess. But love will tear us apart isn't really all that good, but on the other hand "it's not a side effect of the cocaine, i'm thinknig it's love may be one of fall out boys best. In my opinion, but i do agree with the others not for people just starting to listen to FOB. so check it out!
I love it, but...
Personally, I think this is great. I'm a big fan of acoustic stuff, so the majority of the songs on this EP really make me happy! However, I am not a big fan of the cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart. And like everybody else who's reviewed this, I'd recommend that a newbie to the world of FOB start out with From Under the Cork Tree (my personal favorite FOB album!), Infinity on High, or Take This To Your Grave. If you've already been through all those albums, though, then this is definately the next step.
