Editors’ Notes

Here’s the abbreviated guest list: Lil Wayne, Debbie Harry, producer Pharrell Williams, and the center of Patrick Stump’s hook-slinging universe, Elvis Costello. Elvis’ appearance is delivered alongside sweeping strings, melodramatic melodies and a chorus line of Warped Tour vets (members of Panic At the Disco, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, The Academy Is … and more). Bizarre? The torch-passing duet is quite seamless, actually — enough that you might not even notice Costello’s presence the first time around. That’s the important thing to remember here: Fall Out Boy never lets its famous friends get in the way of each song’s postmodern spin on what it means to be, well, Fall Out Boy. Among the album’s twilight- zone touches are the industrial strength synths of “I Don’t Care” (think latter-day A.F.I.), the hardcore howling (backed by Blondie herself) of “West Coast Smoker”, the piano-man lead and smoky horns of “20 Dollar Nose Bleed”, and the sudden blue-eyed soul outro of “W.A.M.S.” All and all, it’s enough to overshadow the pontificating of bassist/band mouthpiece Pete Wentz. It’s kinda hard to get mad at the guy when you’re busy singing every one of his songs.

Customer Reviews

"The songs you grow to like never stick at first"

To put it bluntly, I had been dreading this album. After seeing how the raw punk rock of TTTYG had evolved into the sleek pop of IOH, I wanted a return to FOB's roots. However, after listening to Folie á Deux a few times, I realised something; maybe this is FOB's natural progression. The fast, clever lyrics are still there, courtesy of Pete and Patrick's vocals have never sounded so rich and deep. The widescreen, anthemic choruses found in FUCT still remain, dusted with a crystal sheen from the expensive production and enhanced with orchestral backing. Most notably of all, FOB have still got soul. Call them mainstream, million-selling, pop traitors if you like, but it is clear that FOB have grown musically and are throwing off their emo label with these massive, powerful pop-rock songs. Things have changed and the past is the past. I can now listen to An Evening Out.. and Folie á Deux after each other and rather than feel bitter, feel proud of what FOB have become and what they will go on to do.

'Tis the season to be jolly

I've read a few reviews on a variety of sites over the past weeks, some slagging off the album, some praising and some really not getting the hang of it at all. All I can say is if you like music that is fun, insanely catchy, infectious and (however how quirky) brilliantly written, then this is for you. There has been a lot of pretty dire music released this year by suicidal sounding artists, so why not pick yourself up as Christmas looms.

Folie a Deux

Again, Fall Out Boy do not disappoint on this new album, Folie a Deux. It has the classic FOB sound similar to From Under The Cork Tree and Infinity On High. Their first single I Don't Care is brilliant and the video is great, it has the similar catchiness to This Ain't A Scene. Another plus on the album is the incredible cover of a Michael Jackson classic, Beat It. The only negative i have with the album is the last track, the remix of I Don't Care. I don't agree with remixes done on great rock songs. The Standout tracks on the album are Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes, I Don't Care, America's Sweethearts, Coffee's for Closer, What a Catch Donnie, 27. West Coast Smoker and Beat It. Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes - 9/10 I Don't Care - 10/10 She's My Winona - 7/10 America's Sweethearts - 9/10 Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On a Bad Bet - 9/10 The (Shipped) Gold Standard - 8/10 Coffee's for Closers - 9/10 What a Catch, Donnie - 10/10 27 - 9/10 Tiffany Blews - 6/10 W.A.M.S - 8/10 20 Dollars Nose Bleed - 7/10 West Coast Smoker - 9/10 Beat It - 10/10 I Don't Care (Cobra Starship Sauve Suarez Remix) - 1/10
