"Soul Punk" is an amazing album. It is 100% crafted by Stump, he did it entirely solo - performing, writing all the lyrics, penning all the lyrics, playing over ten instruments and producing it himself (a remix of "This City" with his friend Lupe Fiasco is included as a bonus track, not a part of the actual album)! All the tracks are goovy, Stump coined it as "soul punk" and "smart pop." This is his musical style. It's what he loves to make, it's pop/R&B orientated but tracks like "Allie" use lots of drums and guitar. No, it's not Fall Out Boy but it's the same amazing voice! No, not autotune - he uses multilayering (where he records his voice in a bunch and layers it). His voice is amazing and he's never had professional vocal training! No, no computer programming - he played all the synthesizers. No drum machines, he played all the drums live. Everything is him and every song is perfect! I've been following him since early 2010 and tracked everything, now "Soul Punk" is actually here!!!
If you're expecting a Fall Out Boy sound then it's not happening but you'll be in for a treat! The lyrics are deep (bassist Pete Wentz wrote all the Fall Out Boy lyrics) and meaningful, it's mostly about human nature, greed, innocence, weaved so cleverly in his tighly upbeat and energetic songs that flow with his flexible voice. It's more soul than punk but what's more punk than DIY?
You won't be dissapointed with this solo effort. It is the ultimate album and I highly recommend you buy it, and tell your friends! Stump deserves everything he gets (although he's said he doesn't care about any sales and would be happy to play a show to a room of ten people who like his music; he goes on tour for fans at a loss) and I see him in a few years playing at sold out arenas. Buy it and support Patrick Stump, he worked so hard on it and even scrapped a finished version over a year ago because he wanted to make it to his best!
Unique and Misunderstood
I can really say that i appreciate his efforts and talent. He displays his love for soul music while combining it with Punk kind of creating his own genre of music; this is what i like most about him. Patrick isn't afraid to go a route that people don't like. One of his most popular songs with Fall Out Boy named "I Don't Care" is probably the greatest representation of this. He's stated that he's giving this music his best effort and that he doesn't want to ruin what FOB fans thought of him;however, he wants to explore new things instead of conforming to what everybody expects/wants to hear. My message to Pat:Amen man, this is what music is about. You go be all you can be man.
I'm sorry I know you will somewhat hate me for saying this but I don't think this album was the greatest I like fob more this just dosent have a cathcy sound or it's because it's sort of techno
