Fall Out Boy, technically the first band on Decaydance.

the first album is much more "hip hop" than this album
this is hip pop at the core

It has a lot of R&B influence.

this one? the only song i really hear r&b is clothes off, and that's more funk
on my own time, eh, maybe a little
the rest is poppy as hell, little r&b

The Papercut Chronicles was an incredible release that came out of nowhere for me. Decrepit Bricks is lyrically incredible and while I really like As Cruel As School Children, this does seem like a step backward. Also, I prefer the guitar on PCC, even though it all sort of sounded the same, it was still sweet. However, On My Own Time is a great song.

'Viva La White Girl' has more depth than you may think.

"Sloppy Love Jingle" is better when Travis does it live, as he's done as their impromptu freestyle while the band is tuning - it's lame that it's not exactly a freestyle, but it's a pretty cool little vocal exercise that works as a transition between songs.

"New Friend Request" is legit - want band drama? It's about the dude from The Fully Down's girlfriend.

Indeed. That song has a lot more to do with lines of cocaine than actual white girls.

Best CD of 2006 so far. I don't see how people don't like it. A) Patrick Stump produced it, that's why he sings on it... and that is a dead on update of the song they decided not to "sample" B) It's got an old school R&B feel to it. How is that not "hip hop"? I'm sorry if you wanted to buy a Public Enemy CD.... but this has such an Eminem or Kanye feel to it on some songs, and that's just good hip hop fun C) The lyrics are a step up I think. I especially like all the references to the behind the scenes of being in bands. Lines like "We finish up the peanut butter and jelly that you always get in your rider but never eat" make it worth it especially fun for anyone involved in the music scene D) The Papercut Chronicles was a lot more guitar based, and this is more sample/beat/layer based, but I think it makes it a more complex CD. I guess I can see where TPCC was more indie, but this album is a lot more fun. And don't get me wrong, I LOVE them both. E) I would agree that these guys will probably be on TRL and all that lame stuff sometime soon. I'd bet a major will scoop them if this really takes off like it could. One big tour wil make it possible. F) It was cool to hear shout outs to Boys Night Out and Armor For Sleep and stuff on a CD. It was kind of a new twist to an old tradition.
Bottom line.... I love every track. And William Beckett on "7 Weeks" is amazing. Best song on the CD. I think "Scandolous Scholastics" is a close second also. I can understand the "boy band" feel you mention, because in the beginning it starts off like a Backstreet Boys or Nsync song... I was trying to place what it sounded like and was sad when I figured it out. But after the first 10 seconds it is mind blowing.

i love this record, one of the best releases this year in my opinion. my only gripe is the number of "sloppy love jingles." theyre super clever and all but im just missing the beat in the background. but other than that i think its a rock solid album.

-miked.

oh yea, and like the dude above me said, the shout outs were sweet as hell.
for sure the best way to end the record.
fuck and yea.

there is little to no "old school r&b" on this cd, but there is funk and a small amount of soul
old school r&b consists of jazz, soul and gospel, and artists like fats domino and the neville brothers, and later sam cooke, marvin gaye, otis redding ...there is little to none of that going on here

this has no eminem feel at all, either in the lyrics or the music, so i don't know what the hell you're talking about

this is a hip pop cd, plain and simple...or, if you like, a new evolution of new jack swing

7 Weeks is really the only song I can consistently listen to & not be bored with immediately.
& I agree, the Love Jingles do nothing for me.
Oh well, it's still a pretty amusing & fun album.

Go read the lyrics of Viva La White Girl & think about it a bit.
