Hey peoples. I decided to actually do a post for Friday. Monday was a bit downing, but I feel a lot better now. I hope anyone who was feeling crappy then too is feeling better.
But today we have something better, and more important to talk about. Fall Out Boy released a new album! M A N I A! I swear this album might have made purple my color for 2018. It’s so good. To most people F.O.B. is a very bazar taste. They’re a very unique sound with some strange lyrics that make sense at the same time. The fans understand. I love the new album. Let me tell you about my top songs on the album and why.
I’m not going to review all the songs, but I’m going to first put them in order in which I like them.
- “Heaven’s Gate”
- “Wilson (Expensive mistakes)”
- “HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON’T”
- “Young and Menace”
- “Sunshine Riptide”
- “Bishops Knife Trick”
- “Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea”
This album is close to the same length of songs as American Psycho. Their last album (11 songs) which is pretty good, because it takes a lot to make an album, especially these F.O.B. albums with so much fire.
“Heaven’s Gate”- Let’s talk about this song. It is so beautiful. The words are so beautiful. Some of the lyrics are once again bazar but make perfect sense. I love Patrick’s vocals in the chorus, it’s a little raspy, but sometimes they sing like they’re a heavy metal band not pop, but that’s just how diverse their sound is. It’s 5 chords, making it more interesting than a basic 4 chord song.
The song talks about maybe not making it to heaven, and having a friend boost you over the gate, and how you want to be with your significant other forever.
“HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON’T”- I’d rather talk about this song more than the two above it just because the other two I love and have a meaningful impact on me, but this song, but this song is just so cool.
The music video for this song was shot trying to represent Dia de los Muertos 2016. I think this beat I just don’t know how to describe it it’s so cool!. It just makes you want to get up and dance and move your ass! It’s so rock, and fun. I am apparently bad with words now… I will be honest the song is a bit autotuned. Especially towards the end bridge. If you listen to him sing this song live on I think it is the Today Show, Patrick’s voice totally cracks. It’s a hard note he’s trying to hit.
“Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea”- This song I wanted to mention I put last because personally I wasn’t into it, and I couldn’t get into it, and I felt like some of the transitions from verse to bridge to chorus were too clashing for my taste. But this song is still on my playlists, and I like to listen to it before games for a little extra to pump me up.
Fall Out Boy did a great job on this new album, and I feel like they grew a bit but their music is still continuously true to who they are as a band. F.O.B. is definitely not for everyone… but I know I’m addicted. If you want to hear some of their stuff on my personal playlists ispat1000 on Spotify. It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about music, and I am definitely band trash. Comment below if you’d like to hear me do some guitar stuff. If you find me tolerable, like and follow for more.
Rock on people.
