Sound — 9
Fall Out Boy really knows how to make great music. The sounds are great, the guitars, bass, drums and vocals fit greatly together.
Lyrics — 9
Oh the lyrics, the songs. The usual Fall Out Boy song titles, very long and sometimes, ironic or pointless. For example: "Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued" that was like 1 line of the review! the lyrics though. They're bitter, insulting. But the way Patrick sings them. They're like tongue twisters, I can't understand what he's saying! especially in the song "Sugar, We're Goin' Down." I didn't understand the chorus very well. Although I can't understand it, the lyrics really go well with the song they're in. Patrick Stumph ain't really the best singer, but his voice really goes well with their songs, and he knows when to raise his voice, and when not to.
Overall Impression — 8
It definitely compares to others, cause Fall Out Boy is very unique, and most of the time, you can distinguish a Fall Out Boy song from a different artist's song. The most impressive songs for me would probably be: "Sugar, We're Goin' Down", "Dance, Dance", "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me", "Of All The Gin Joints In All The World" and "Xo". I practically love most of the things about the album except probably when they make their voices metallic. If it were stolen or lost, I'd probably buy it again since it's an album worth listening to.
