obviously you're wrong, since the other dude felt the same way. either that or it's a conspiracy to disparage fall out boy drum production.
my point was it all sounded very electronic and overproduced, not that there was literally no drumbeat in the song; it's just not very acoustic/rawk-sounding, like the other guy implied. the guitar, or lack thereof, is similar; it's hardly present, processed, and just not rock at all. the song is pure pop. this is essentially a soul punk b-side. what's the point of having the band back if they don't sound like a band?
having said all that, i do have faith that the album will be solid and this is more of a designed single. it would be following suit with their last two albums. also, i have to admit that this will fit in perfectly on the radio. it's definitely going to be huge. and in a way, that's always been one of the things i respected most about FOB - their ability to stay relevant while also remaining primarily within the rock genre, staying true to themselves (it seems like), and continually progressing. they never sold out to maintain relevancy; they just progressed. it's really pretty incredible what they accomplished, managing to stay so mainstream while still releasing legitimately awesome music. so part of me wants to give them props for keeping that up, but another part me wants to say that at this point they've gone too far and completely given up on being a rock band.
really, we all have to reserve judgment until we hear the full album.
