What? No mention of "Coffee's for Closures?" The strongest song on the record and arguably one of FOB's biggest anthems to date?

Did we get the same cd?
Honestly, I already talked about the vast majority of the songs, perhaps a bit more than I originally intended to. If it didn't convince the reader to check it out, talking about one more probably won't change his or her mind. If they do listen based on this review, then it's a surprise for them to find.

Great review Tony. This album is boosting up my top 10 for the year. Not sure if it knocks out Lydia though.


This ranks up there with TTTYG because it has so many different elements in the songs and it all works. Phenomenal CD.

I got it before work this morning and after one spin, it's sitting well. That's definitely a good sign. IOH took several times before I could pick out some songs that made the purchase worth it. So far, I like the $10.00 that I spent on it. In reference to the User ratings, I think that those numbers will go up, but I could never see giving Patrick Stump a 7.39 on vocals. He is always, at worst, an 8. An album might blow, but his vocals never will. Ever.

Too bad the whiners have already crawled out of the woodwork.

Amazingly good, diverse, and exciting album.

Agreed.

Patrick Stump's vocals are the only reason I listen to this band. If any other singer was singing this album I wouldn't give a fuck.

Stumps got soul.

Damn right. And if Tony is on target with some sort of solo project on Stump's part, in the future, he'll have a fan right here. In fact, when it's all said and done, I might even prefer his solo stuff to FOB. Who knows.

I think that this album is so much like Cork Tree. It even has the spoken poem by Wentz in it. While I don't dig the poetry reading, that is definitely a compliment for this album.

Love the album; I think Stump as a vocalist shines, and he's able to enunciate more than in previous albums - I'd give him a 10 for vocals.

Well done on the review.
