Play.com ReviewAmerican pop-rockers Fall Out Boy make a rapturous return with their fifth full-length studio album, Folie a Deux. Containing only traces of the commercial punk sensibility that laced their previous release, Infinity on High, this roaring release sees Fall Out Boy develop a new rock sound that is brimming with '80s inspired riffs and contagious choruses.Folie a Deux leaps joyfully between a blend of pleasing pop punk to grandiose epics. Delving deep in to the politics of the heart and mind, Pete Wentz takes the songwriting reigns to explore decaying relationships and societal shortcomings with lyrics that command the presence of lead singer Patrick Stump's distinctive vocals. While 'American Suitehearts' is a strutting tongue in cheek pop swipe at narcissism that bares resemblance to their catchy early hit, 'Sugar, We're Goin Down', the opening stomper 'Disloyal Order Of Water Buffaloes' is a crazed rock chant that is grand in proportion. With suave precision, 'Tiffany Blews' throws itself entirely into '80s new romanticism. It is a pseudo club track that sees one of rap's hottest stars, Lil Wayne, offering guest vocals. Folie a Deux is littered with star collaborations: while Blondie superstar Debbie Harry offers vocals on the sleek 'West Coast Smoker' and Pharrell Williams lends his expertise on the double-bass filled 'w.a.m.s.', the overblown piano ballad, 'What A Catch, Donnie', has guest appearances from Panic At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie and Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy alongside rock veteran Elvis Costello who sings the re-emerging hook from earlier track, 'Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet'. The upbeat tracks of 'She's My Winona' and '27' strut with experimental rock sounds: drummer Andrew Hurley pounds out taut marching beats, Joseph Trohman laces the tracks with lush guitarwork to construct Fall Out Boy's unmistakable sound.Fall Out Boy have always shown a willingness to be creative and experiment in order to expand their sound to achieve greater results and Folie a Deux sees them take their largest risk yet. Introducing a wider range of sounds and instrumentation including orchestral and choral arrangements, Fall Out Boy have removed some of the standard punk elements of previous releases to produce their brightest and stylistically mature album to date.

I have listened to and loved Fall Out Boy for a long time now and being in a band myself, am completely jealous of the catchy, melodic, addictive music that they have always made. This album is no different, every song in its own right is amazing, patrick stumps voice is even better than previous albums (buy the limited editin "Folie A Deux" album and check out the acoustic version of "what a catch, donnie"- patrick's voice at its best!) If you're a fan of Fall Out Boy you have to have this album, really good easy listening! big up the FOB

A worthy follow-up.

The song titles may make about as much sense as learning algebra with Japanese fridge instructions, but what is clear is that this band spend longer than most writing and crafting their material.
Every song feels as though it was deliberated over carefuly; Fall Out Boy don't do padding - if it's on the album then it needs to be up to standard. There are of course the stand-out tracks, chief among them the first single, America's Suitehearts, but I guarantee that almost every fan will argue the case for a different song, such is the variety on offer.
One or two tracks might be a bit too obscure for casual tastes and not the sort of thing you sing along to, even if the tune is infectious, but FOB do not even try to appease everybody and they are a better band for it.
So we have 13 lively, distinctive, well-written, if occasionally curious tunes, each one deserving of your time. To round things off, the UK disc even features their cover of Michael Jackson's Beat It - if you don't enjoy that then you have no business owning ears.
At £6, you really have no excuse not to invest.
