People don't work that hard to be ironic.
Patrick has changed as an artist. He's always loved the music he's emulating dice he was a kid, before he was in hardcore bands and FOB. Now if he was making pop-punk again, that would be a lot more insincere because he's made it clear that he's evolved in a new direction. He's the guy who has produced for Cobra Starship, the Cab and Lupe Fiasco among others. He's the guy who grew up on Prince and MJ. He always has been. His solo stuff is where he really gets to show this side that had been creeping into Fall Out Boy starting with IOH. It's not fake. It's just a side you don't know as well. /endfanboyrant
So yeah, this song is pretty awesome. The album is definitely on my watch list.
Great, it's one of those guys hahaha! Dude, this conversation was started long before you came in. I, in fact, was not the one who came up with the hipster term... but by you denying Patrick is a hipster is quite ignorant. That is just a plain fact haha!
And by pretentious, I just mean it doesn't feel real. I feel he is trying WAY too hard to release something that comes out as not true to him, even if he did grow up listening to MJ and prince. I grew up listening to bands like The Who, The Clash, and MJ... am I going to go and make some sort of mix of all 3, nope! But again, THIS IS JUST MY OPINION!
I still have respect for the dude, and know his background in hardcore bands (hence why I mentioned that in earlier posts).
Again (as I mentioned in other posts :), I never meant this comment to take away from the praise of Transit... AND Patrick, on this incredible song! I just merely was saying that this sound Patrick is doing suits him WAY more than his solo project. Contrived may have been a better word than pretentious :)
