Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The cleverness of Fall Out Boy's lyrical content is immediately evident by looking at the song titles on their sophomore disc, From Under the Cork Tree. "A Little Less 'Sixteen Candles,' a Little More 'Touch Me,'" "I Slept with Someone in Fall Out Boy and All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me" and "Sophomore Slump or Comeback of the Year" are but a small taste of the group's acerbic attitude. After FOB's indie debut hit the underground charts, the group's sudden indie-style success made for a fast growth spurt. Their appeal is obvious, from frontman Patrick Stump's Killer-esque pipes (especially evidenced in the disc-closing "XO") to their very melodic teen-angst anthems. While much of the disc operates at usual punk-pop speed, the highlight comes from a slower, emotion-laden cut called "I've Got a Dark Alley and a Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth." This song of living in the public while working through private pain is a beautiful, multilayered number that stays with you long after the album is over. --Denise Sheppard

about high school peer pressure.

I avoided this album for a long time. "Sugar We're Going Down" got a lot of airplay, but while I thought the song was catchy, I assumed it was just another crappy emo band. However, after "Dance Dance" and "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me", I decided 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 going 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 think that a lot of the alternative 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 liking 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 good hooks, catchy melodies, smart lyrics(not necessarily thought-provoking or deep, but they've got some pretty good one-liners), and you can't deny the fact that the singer, Patrick Stump, has a great range. The Remix of Sugar We're Goin' Down is a little 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 enjoy 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.

FOB outdid themselves with this one. I enjoyed 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 amazing. My favorites: "I keep my jealousy close cause its all mine, and if you say that makes you happy than I'm not the only one lying." Also, the infamous "Am I more than you bargained for yet?" Its so easy 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 love how every song is catchy. My favorite song on the album is "Dance, Dance," because it has amazing lyrics, and great drums and bass. Another favorite is "Nobody Puts Baby In the Corner," which I love way better than the acoustic version. Other favorites are "Champagne for my Real Friends..." and "XO." I LOVE pretty much every song on the album, and that rarely happens for me.

Okay, I just have to say this:

I've read a lot of the reviews on this CD, and I just have a lot to say about them. But before you insult me, saying that I don't know anything about anything, here it is:

For those of you who are saying that people should listen to Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and the whole nine yards instead of Fall Out Boy... I don't get you. What do Fall Out Boy have to do with any of those bands? I mean, I am definately not saying that Metallica, Maiden and all the rest suck, but people buy the Fall Out Boy CD because they like that kind of music. Some people like it when you can't understand the lyrics properly. But you can't go around comparing Fall Out Boy to Metallica or whatever. Some people like music from the 80's, some people like new music. I agree completely that Fall Out Boy are not punk in any way, seeing as it's completely dead, never to be ressurected, and that real punk is Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Black Flag, The Clash and all of them, but it doesn't make sense to tell someone "Listen to Metallica, not Fall Out Boy". Now I know that this is a review, and that you're supposed to write how you feel about the album, but by saying "This sucks, go listen to Maiden right NOW" you can't be serious. I'm sorry, I just don't get how you can compare the two.

Now I know this is meant to be a review of From Under The Cork Tree, and people will rate this low as hell, but it doesn't matter to me whether you rate it high or low, as long as you get what I'm saying.

P.S. The dude may have a hard to understand voice, but you have to admit, his sideburns rock.

Second albums aren't always as good as first albums. You have you entire life to make the first one but only a year or so to make the second one. But this band has not let us down with From Under The Cork Tree.

Like TTTYG, there are no fillers on this CD. Any one of the 13 tracks could easily be a single or video.

Not only has Fall Out Boy earned their signing to a major label, they have proven that they will not compromise their artistic integrity (i.e. "sell out"). The sound of the second CD may be a little more polished and produced, but it is unmistakably Fall Out Boy. This is not a Simple Plan or Dashboard Confessional CD by any means.

Song-by-Song reviews:

1) Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued - Great song to open the album with. The beginning sound effects (the camera clicking) sort of echos "Tell That Mick..." from TTTYG, but this is an entirely different (and much less angry) opening act. 9/10

2) Of All The Gin Joints In All The World - Not a filler by any means, but not my favorite on the album. 7/10

3) Dance Dance - Catchy and yes, danceable. 8/10

4) Sugar We're Going Down - One of my four favorites on the album. It's the obvious first single and hopefully the song that will break the band. 10/10

5) Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner - Excellent song. The full-band version rocks, but I do prefer the acoustic version. I think a better choice to be remade would have been "It's Not A Side Effect of Cocaine. I'm Thinking It Must Be Love." 9/10

6) I've Got A Dark Alley And A Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth - This is a big sudden left-turn for the band. It almost has a retro 80s Smiths/Morrissey sound. Very refreshing, very different.

I'm not sure why people are defensive about how something is labeled.

No. Do we need to walk around telling... Read More
