Fall Out Boy - Save Rock and Roll Quotes by Fall Out Boy
Hey, our system thinks you're a bot.
Despite protestations from the band itself, it's hard not to see Fall Out Boy 's reunion as anything but an inevitable consequence of the considerable negativity both vocalist Patrick Stump and pop-punk pin-up Pete Wentz's solo projects attracted following FOB's 'indefinite hiatus' back in Whether deserved or not, the vitriolic flak both Soul Punk and Black Cards received from legions of former FOB fans was suggestive of several things, but most striking was the intense possessive entitlement that FOB seemed to inspire in their 'devoted' listeners. Stump, in particular, was subject to a savage backlash that saw him slammed for everything from his new musical direction to his dramatically reduced waistline. In this context Save Rock and Roll deserves some credit; it's not brave, experimental, remotely left-field or dangerous, but it's also probably not what the swarms of angry Wentz-stalking Livejournal obsessives who chained themselves to a Cork Tree back in would want either. And whilst titling your comeback album Save Rock and Roll ' suggests Christ complexes greater than 30 Second To Mars, FOB thankfully side-step the self-help, cosmic rock-messiah posturing of Leto and co by injecting a considerable amount of foot-stomping fun into their fifth full-length. Scattered across Save Rock and Roll are a selection of eclectic and somewhat bizarre guest spots, which provide both the highs and lows on an otherwise fun, if unremarkable album of glossy synth pop-punk. Big Sean throws in a verse on 'The Mighty Fall' that rivals Wiz Khalifa's on Maroon 5's 'Payphone' in terms of superfluousness and on 'Rat A Tat' Courtney Love simply spews forth a couple of indecipherable rants - her appearance here proving she still has considerable purchase amongst the upper echelons of the music industry, but providing absolutely no clue as to why.
Here's a not-well-kept secret: back in their heyday, Fall Out Boy could stand toe-to-toe with any rock act, not just those corralled into their "pop-punk" sphere. In a very short amount of time, Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman found a winning formula based upon tongue-in-cheek turns of phrase and razor-sharp hooks; they had great singles "Grand Theft Autumn," "Sugar, We're Goin' Down" and great albums 's "Infinity on High" holds up incredibly well in their arsenal. In , following the release of the uneven "Folie a Deux," the walls came tumbling down, and the seething band members went their separate ways. Solo projects popped up, and Fall Out Boy's joyful run appeared to have been mummified. A slighty better-kept secret is that Stump's solo debut, 's "Solo Punk," is an arresting, understandably overlooked full-length of nervous white-boy funk and unabashed MJ poses. In spite of the genre in its title, Fall Out Boy's comeback album, "Save Rock and Roll," is more informed by its singer's dance-based foray than most of the band's previous albums. Songs like "Miss Missing You," "Where Did The Party Go" and especially "Death Valley" sometimes treat their guitar segments like hood ornaments while allowing Stump's elastic voice to command its audience to move.
