My main problem was the subject matter. I know Travis has more interesting things to talk about than Myspace and white girls. Granted there was some playful tracks on the last CD--Cupid's Chokehold, Make Out Club, etc, but they mixed it up with some thoughtful, hard-hitting songs. If they would have stayed with this formula I would have liked to CD a lot better.

I agree. The Papercut Chronicles is much better than this album. This sounds like a combination of Fall Out Boy and MTV hip-hop. Their last album was excellent musically and lyrically, and this one falls short in both categories.

In the same vein, I'm pretty fucking sick of hearing Patrick Stump's voice.

Excellent review. I also agree that the sloppy love jingles really kill the flow of the album. Still pretty good stuff overall though.

I really liked this release. However, if you were to pick up a hip-hop album, Jurassic 5's new one is much better than GCH.

Agreed! I mean, he's got a pretty good voice, but how many guest vocals has he done lately??
Probably more than the actual amount of decent songs on the next Fall Out Boy record.

If you need hard-hitting lyric's about a stranger's life, you have the last album. What's wrong with tracks that are easy to enjoy?

I really like this cd. Clothes Off is a great song, it's really catchy and Patrick sounds good on it but 7 weeks has better lyrics. Just curious Drew, who is the other Decaydance band that has gotten big besides Panic?
