    about high school peer difficulty.

    I avoided this album for a long time. “Sugar We’re Vacant Down” got a lot of airplay, but while I thought the song was catchy, I assumed it was just another crappy emo band. But, after “Dance Dance” and “A Small Less Sixteen Candles, A Small More Touch Me”, I chose to get the album.

    I am only a few months older than Pete, and a bit older than the other members, so I definately am well above the median age of FOB fans, but… their music is brilliant fun. Their music is not vacant to change the world, but who cares? I am not a fan of most of the “rock” that MTV plays these days, which is a reason I reckon that a lot of the different bands from the 90’s who are still around have benefitted so well, but these guys are an exception.

    For the younger fans. I am sure that “cool elitist” kids at your school make fun of you for predilection this band, but look at it this way. When I was your age, I took crap all the time for listening to Weezer and Green Day by exactly the same type of kids who are picking apart FOB now… yet over a decade later, look who is still around? So just smile and nod and don’t care about they say because everyone should be free to like what they want to like.

    Fall Out Boy are masters at perfecting the art of pop-punk. The songs have excellent hooks, catchy melodies, smart lyrics(not necessarily thought-provoking or deep, but they’ve got some sweet excellent one-liners), and you can’t deny the fact that the singer, Patrick Stump, has a splendid range. The Remix of Sugar We’re Goin’ Down is a small quieter, with a louder bass, and the Dance Dance remix has more of an electronic vibe.

    Sure, pop-punk may just be a trend, but why not delight in it while it lasts?

    P.S. To the person who is bitching about what “punk rock” is – shut up. First of all, you obviously haven’t heard anything from Fall Out Boy other than their singles, so you have no place to write a review on their albums. Second of all, Fall Out Boy have never called themselves punk, and they are not “posing” as a punk band. They are pop-punk and they know it. Name-dropping the Sex Pistols doesn’t make you look any cooler, it just makes you look like a retarded, closed-minded elitist. And please, use punctuation. Your use of run-on sentences further proves yourself as a moron.

    This review is from: From Under the Cork Tree (Audio CD)
    FOB outdid themselves with this one. I loved Take This to Your Grave, but the songs on this album are much more catchy and enjoyable. I wasnt even a huge fan of their first album, but this one made me a hardcore FOB fan. First of all, I’d like to say that their use of lyrics are incredible. My favorites: “I keep my jealousy close cause its all mine, and if you say that makes you pleased than I’m not the only one lying.” Also, the infamous “Am I more than you bargained for yet?” Its so simple for so many people to relate to their songs. Many of their songs are about them being bitter at exes, although the style of music isnt exactly depressing either. I also like how every song is catchy. My favorite song on the album is “Dance, Dance,” because it has incredible lyrics, and splendid drums and bass. Another favorite is “Nobody Puts Baby In the Corner,” which I like way better than the acoustic version. Other favorites are “Champagne for my Real Friends…” and “XO.” I LOVE sweet much every song on the album, and that rarely happens for me.
