This album further continues my disappointment with FOB...just like someone said earlier they now are a POP band which seriously is sad...I fell in love with From Under The Cork Tree and then I was given the 180 degree change that was Infinity On High...that album and this album are ghastly...yes yes Patrick gets to show his range, they get to throw in new musical styles, and FOB gets to jab at the haters lyrically but I seriously think as FOB continues their career as a POP band they are going to have a revolving door fan base...with each album they are going to piss off a once loyal branch of their fans and the place of those fans will be filled in with new fans that heard and loved FOB's latest single on the radio...they will lose lots of fans (such as myself) as the years go on but do to their pop-culture popularity their records will continue to sell like crazy
I don't think Fall Out Boy has gained any new fans that have never heard of them with "I Don't Care."
I don't think anything like that has happened since "Sugar, We're Going Down," before they were on the radar of the common man and woman.
The problem is that so many Fall Out Boy fans want to keep the same Fall Out Boy that wrote Take This To Your Grave, and when it doesn't happen, they get pissy and leave. It's been happening for two albums now.
But I don't think it's true to say that with every album they gain new fans based off the singles. Thnks Fr Th Mmrs may have been a huge single, but I would personally think that most of the world knew about Fall Out Boy before its release, it just happened to be a chart-topping hit.
If you live in the world today and know anything about true pop music, you know who Fall Out Boy are.
That's just my opinion.
