Hey guys,

Ok, so I know it's a huge risk these days going on the internet and writing the words 'fall out boy', but as a die hard FOB fan it's a risk I'm willing to take.

So right now I'm listening to 'Fall Out Boy's Evening out with Your Girlfriend' and thinking how the f*ck is it possible that they can go from "I can be your John Cusack" with thrashing unorderly guitars, to the power-ballad-sounding "I'm coming apart at the seams" in just 5 years?

Fall Out Boy is great. I've enjoyed all their CD's at one point. Even Evening Out With Your Girlfriend, which even they hate greatly.

I have to say that Pete's lyrics are way less depressing than they were on Take This To Your Grave. They're far less cynical and there are even a few shards of hope in each of their song rather than just self-loathing and depress that was present on their pass CD's. In fact I think his lyrics have gotten happier which each release.

But hey, that's just me. Nice blog though.
