Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Folie … Deux is the fifth studio album for the band, Fall Out Boy and it is the follow up to their 2007 album, Infinity on High. Folie A Deux was produced by Neal Avron at The Pass Studios in Los Angeles. For the album, Fall Out Boy spearheaded a politically charged group that unveiled cryptic "Big Brother" type messages in order to support and ignite a democratic process. Impressively, the creative album roll-out garnered over one million impressions in just one week online across literally hundreds of websites. Universal.

Review

"But it's certainly no delusion that he and the rest of Fall Out Boy display more depth here than they ever have before." -- Hartford Courant

"Vocalist Patrick Stump continues to be one of the sharpest, smoothest vocalists in the game" -- Fort Worth Star Telegram

"Fall Out Boy conquered a segment of the world with pop songs that everyone can shout in their cars, and the band should be applauded for wanting more out of their music as they mature" -- Chicago Tribune

"Mr. Stump's vocals are the soul of the band. He's able to sustain unusually rich timbres on very high notes. It's the sort of effect typically added by studio technicians in post-production, but Mr. Stump comes by it honestly." -- Washington Times

"Wentz may be the face of Fall Out Boy, but Stump is the band's not-so-secret weapon, and together, they're fast becoming one of the slickest, most formidable tag teams in modern rock." -- Detroit News

Customer Reviews

Overall, it's a very good song.
Scarlett
All I'm saying is give folie a deux and try and don't think of it as a crappy excuse for an album...because true fall out boy fans will love it.
Keith Nusbaum
I love every song on this album, worth the purchase.

Fall Out Boy is perhaps the one band that most defines what alternative punk/pop/emo rock is to today's record-buying public, with 2005's From Under The Cork Tree and 2007's Infinity On High garnering massive commercial success. On Folie A Deux, their 5th studio album, they've honed their formula for success and crafted songs that, to my ears, should satisfy core fans and newcomers alike.

On the majority of these tracks, the experimentation and mixing of musical styles and genres occur on either side of a very strong, melodic, mainstream rock chorus...in other words, F.O.B. has at least one section of every song they can hang their hat on; it doesn't seem to matter how far they stray from the 'conventional' approach to writing a rock song, at some point in each track you will hear familiarity (great sounding choruses).

The record's production is very "BIG"-sounding...typical F.O.B. trademarks, like multiple layers of vocals with plenty of "Whoa's" and "Oh's" and chants, tight harmonies, and great variety with instrumentation seem to have been emphasized...but I wouldn't necessarily say it's overproduced. Even though the arrangements can get a little 'busy' at times, Pete Wentz (bass guitar, lyrics) and Patrick Stump (vocals) somehow make the chaos work, and we end up hearing some very creative, interesting, and catchy music.

The first track, "Disloyal Order...", has about 4 different 'verse' sections, including an organ-based opening and a guitar chord progression reminiscent of The Who's "Teenage Wasteland", before it even gets to what might be considered the 'chorus'. But with each listen, this song just gets better and better, and I feel it's one of the album's best tracks.

I want to start by saying that this is a very enjoyable album, but Folie A Deux finds our heroes, the emo kings, embracing their melodic sensibility a little more tightly than some of their long time fans might like. Piano chords (!) can be heard ringing through at times, and power chords are occasionally left to linger in almost power pop fashion. To be sure, crunchy guitars with plenty of fuzz still are apparent, but the tunes are toe tapping, sometimes downright pretty, and definitely very catchy. Wentz's base is insistent, slamming its way around the melody line, sublimely funky, and backed up by a stomping rhythm section. Instrumentation is actually a little adventurous, and the entire affair brings to mind Panic! At the Disco's "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" more than just a little bit. Personally, I think that is pretty high praise, but I'm not sure that everyone who loves Fall Out Boy is going to feel the same way.

The stuff you have come to love is still here, never fear. Patrick's ever shaky vocal charms are the centerpiece of most of the songs. He sings, whines, pleads, and then boldly slides all around his range, which appears to be widening over time. He is more confident here than before, and that says a lot. He takes a lot of chances vocally, with some impressive harmonies and generally very strong vocal lines. I think that this album is his most listenable performance, but once more, I know that not all Fall Out Boy fans want things to be too listenable.

From a lyrical perspective, it has always been a little hard to know when Fall Out Boy are telling us like it is, letting us in on what is really on their hearts, or when they are throwing out blythe redirects as facade for a deeper hurt that maybe they don't want to reveal.

Of all the albums Fall Out Boy has released, this one hits way at the top on my list. I love this album so much because Patrick really lets loose in it. He sings the way that I love best. He sounds so powerful when he sings. It kind of sounds shameful to call it singing really; it's more like speaking with a melody. It is unfortunate that this is the last album to be released before the "split" of the band. For those who do not know, Fall Out Boy is "taking a break", kind of like Ross and Rachel from Friends, I hope that they plan to get back together for one more tour before they completely disband, but the band says they are not broken up just doing their own thing. I know Patrick has his solo project right now. He just released Soul Punk, his solo album, yesterday, October 18th, 2011. It was amazing if you guys want to check it out. I know the rest of the band has their own projects, but unfortunately I don't know what they are called. Thanks for reading my review and I hope I was helpful to someone.

My favorite songs form this album:
.She's my Winona
.America's Suitehearts
.What a Catch, Donnie
.Tiffany Blews

My favorite songs from Patrick Stumps solo album, Soul Punk:
.Bad Side of 25
.Allie
.The "I" in Lie
.This City

Minus the kinetic energy of Infinity on High but still driving home the massive hooks they're known for, Fall Out Boy goes for the maturity prize on "Folie A Deux." Given that their pals in Panic At the Disco couldn't survive the change that created Pretty. Odd., it's interesting to note that the maturity seems tentative. There's the glammy lead off single "I Don't Care" and a string laden power ballad, "What a Catch, Donnie," but the sounds you'd expect come through on the harmony laden "America's Sweethearts" and the semi-pretentious song titles.

What's missing is that funky sense of exuberance that marked "Infinity" and From Under the Cork Tree. Just because you can get Elvis Costello to sing a line on one of your better songs and get the Neptunes to produce a track (the otherwise un-memorable "w.a.m.s.") singles more a shark jump than capturing artistic cred. Just ask The Hives, who made the great Black And White Album with Pharrel Williams only to see it vanish like their previous albums did. FoB are big enough to not worry, yet, but the somewhat subdued nature of "Folie A Deux" begins to raise the questions.

"I Don't Care" is not exactly original
You can say similar things about many songs out there. It's music. It's not one riff that makes a song, it's the whole ensemble.

Why such a high score?
Because it has more of an adult sound -- Their music is growing up at the same rate as their original fanbase, thus made it more well-received in audiences ranging from 15 to 40, as opposed to their past albums.
