johnny crunch, Monday, 8 April 2013 16:02 (seven years ago) link

the title track is prob the most fascinating thing they've ever written

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:07 (seven years ago) link

like they wrote a track called "save rock and roll" and not only got elton john to sing on it but also had him sing one of their old lines

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:08 (seven years ago) link

so much fist pumping and woo in this I'm loving it

never listened to "phoenix" and "my songs" in sequence but man everything is pitched at 100 percent for the first six minutes of this record

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:41 (seven years ago) link

i love that run of the final 3 tracks at the end -- especially RatTatTat fkn courtney fuck yeah

i love when elton john pronounces "love" as "LUFF"

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:42 (seven years ago) link

though I kinda wish this was 70's elton, his oldman elton low voice is a bit jarring at first

i never think of pete wentz as a bass player but that's a great bass line in "where did the party go" (a realization i come to whenever i listen to "w.a.m.s" also)

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:47 (seven years ago) link

"where did the party go" and esp "miss missing you" are full prom dance

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:48 (seven years ago) link

lol yes

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:49 (seven years ago) link

it is with out a doubt the first record in a new chapter of fall out boy. we made this music for ourselves and no one else at the end of the day. this is meant be played loud, with the windows down on summer nights. four friends with our backs to each other fighting in the darkness against anything and everything that is out there. we bowed our heads, took a knee and plugged back in.

haha god dammit i love this band so much

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:52 (seven years ago) link

got nothing but extremely entertained lols for "the mighty fall"

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:53 (seven years ago) link

good simple plan bite, big sean

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:53 (seven years ago) link

"oh how the mighty fall / in love" is such a classic wentz lyric

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:53 (seven years ago) link

the 'took a knee and plugged in' line made me irl lol so hard

"young volcanoes" is so good, i hear so many singles on this record

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:54 (seven years ago) link

my girlfriend likened "young volcanoes" to train which has momentarily ruined the song for me

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:55 (seven years ago) link

i guess i don't know whether to roll my eyes or to fist pump and cheer at somebody writing a song about the state of rock n roll in... 2013

nb without having heard the actual song, obv

乒乓, Monday, 8 April 2013 16:55 (seven years ago) link

lol i was re-reading the infinity on high thread this weekend and i compared "what a catch" to train u_u

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:56 (seven years ago) link

"young volcanoes" sounds like the most blatant fun. rip on the record tho

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:56 (seven years ago) link

dudes you should've seen the way my eyes glimmered at the start of "miss missing you"

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 16:56 (seven years ago) link

yeah the first time i heard that i was like "ah man brad's gonna die when he hears this"

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 16:57 (seven years ago) link

love young volcanoes so much

I'll take a FOB fun. ripoff every single time over hearing fun. soulessly whoaohhhh ever again

I WANNA SEE YOUR ANIMAAAAALLLL SIDE
LET IT ALL OUUUUUUUT

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 17:00 (seven years ago) link

Not sure if this is outside the scope of the conversation, but has anybody written anything about how FOB became such a critically respected, "important" band? I don't really understand that POV, but I'm interesting in learning how the consensus changed so drastically

Evan R, Monday, 8 April 2013 17:03 (seven years ago) link

don't worry, they really haven't

J0rdan S., Monday, 8 April 2013 17:03 (seven years ago) link

the answer is Dom xp

乒乓, Monday, 8 April 2013 17:04 (seven years ago) link

critics have always mostly liked them ime

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 17:05 (seven years ago) link

meanwhile, it's courtney bitch

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 17:07 (seven years ago) link

omg the sample of "chicago is so two years ago" on the title track.

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Monday, 8 April 2013 17:13 (seven years ago) link

oh shi I didn't even notice

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 8 April 2013 17:14 (seven years ago) link

Wow @ this record. Up to Just One Yesterday...

MikoMcha, Monday, 8 April 2013 17:15 (seven years ago) link

i think the biggest roadblock for me w/ this record is how much i loved Stump's solo album and his lyric writing that going back to hearing him as the mouthpiece for rmde Wentz witticisms feels like a downgrade

the drummer for gay Daddy Yankee (some dude), Monday, 8 April 2013 18:10 (seven years ago) link

patrick's laugh at 1:30 in Young volcanoes, so awesome

the good news is everybody gets to have an outlet

"My Songs" sounds like it sampled Britney. Sooo many hoox on this album.

mox twelve, Monday, 8 April 2013 18:24 (seven years ago) link

calling "rat a tat" as the ultimate set of wentz lyrics

I’m about to make the sweat roll backwards
And your heart beat in reverse
Our guts can’t be reworked
As alone as a little white church in the middle of the desert
Getting burned

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Tuesday, 9 April 2013 01:43 (seven years ago) link

no emo lyrics have ever really reached the heights of deja entendu

Mordy, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 01:49 (seven years ago) link

i wonder how many times hearts have beaten in reverse in his discography

some dude, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 01:52 (seven years ago) link

Just interviewed Messrs Stump and Wentz for a podcast. Not a band I've ever taken much notice of, but genuinely delightful interviewees.

Trans-Europe Stopping Train (ithappens), Tuesday, 9 April 2013 11:01 (seven years ago) link

i think the biggest roadblock for me w/ this record is how much i loved Stump's solo album and his lyric writing...

man, i wish i had your problems. i tried so damn hard with stump solo, really i did. wanted to love it, but could barely manage grudging respect. glad to see FOB back together.

I have many lovely lacy nightgowns (contenderizer), Tuesday, 9 April 2013 11:23 (seven years ago) link

there are ways in which the instrumentation/production doesn't remotely measure up to the band's, but as a showcase for his songwriting/vocals i thought it was pretty stellar.

some dude, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 11:38 (seven years ago) link

man almost none of those records conform to the "sent musicians back to their main bands" narrative

emo canon in twee major (BradNelson), Tuesday, 9 April 2013 13:42 (seven years ago) link

xxp, yeah that's fair. the production and arrangements sabotage what could (and should) have been a much better album.
