That album made me fall in love with FOB all over again. I have to admit (at the time) they sorta lost me with Infinity on High, although I like that album a lot more now. I can't say enough good things about Folie a Deux.
I totally agree with this. IOH is like the only FOB album I don't care for, but Folie is an amazing pop record. I know some people genuinely enjoy TTTYG and FUTCT more and that's totally okay, but I hate the people who let their nostalgia cloud everything and stop them from being open to the rest of the albums. I know that's not true for all the fans of their older stuff, but I swear there are those types of people out there who always "only like the older stuff" and everything new is sucky or the band has sold out because they're not recreating old records, and it is just stupid.
On another note, people saying "I liked you better fat" to me is akin to those who say "so and so was better before they got sober." Like how discouraging would that be? To work so hard to get healthy and in a better place only to tell someone, and to their face, that you liked them better when they were addicts/unhealthy/miserable. I would be raging and probably a lot less nice about it than Patrick is.
