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

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.

Folie a Deux is Fall Out Boy's least popular album. HOWEVER, it is also my favorite from Fall Out Boy and #2 on my all time favorites from any band or artist.
This record was very closely involved with Patrick Stump, the singer/guitarist of the band. I hate calling some people better than others, but I think he is extremely talented.
"Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes" starts the album off with a catchy, memorable chorus that makes me want to sing at the top of my lungs.
"I Don't Care" is like a little rebel song, as suggested by the title. With its blues guitar riff and a nice beat to clap along to, this song was the most popular song off the album, and I can really see why.
"She's My Winoa" is a sort of fast-drummed out song. It sort of carries a lot of the vibe that this record holds as a whole, and that vibe is really... different. That's probably why the album didn't really take off. However, I really like how Patrick tried out a completely different vibe than the public was used to.
"America's Suitehearts" is my favorite off this record. I don't know why, but I'd describe this song as the kind of song that wants to make a statement. It's about how the media can take what makes you YOU and throw it out of the window and destroy you.
In "Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown," Patrick gets to show off how deep his voice is. It has a sort of hard-rock-ish verse and chorus. The part after the chorus (or is that the chorus and the part before it is the pre-chorus?) softens, with a piano playing the chords. Great song.
"The (Shipped) Gold Standard" is absolutely wonderful, in my opinion. I wish i could just say that for all of the songs and it would make sense, but sadly, I cannot.

Format: Audio CD
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.

"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.
