I wasn't really a fan of FOB when I got this album. I liked a couple of their songs but ultimately just thought of them as 'some emo band'. Then I heard 'This Ain't a Scene..' and 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs' and I started to kind of raise my head and think, hmm they can't be that bad really. I like to think I have an ear for something pretty good. I heard 'The Take Over..' and I didn't really like it for a while, but it grew on me.. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something different as it has elements of a couple of different genres.

I don't get the lyrics. Simple as. I guess only Pete Wentz really knows what he's talking about, and fair enough. I don't understand some of them either. Even now that I know most of them, for example 'This Ain't A Scene..' I still sing along 'I'm a little man, and I'm also evil, also into cats...' and 'This ain't a scene, it's a golf cart a--e face... ' Patrick Stump really wows me with his vocal range, he makes you want to close your eyes and sway, especially on songs like 'Golden' and 'I'm Like A Lawyer'
Overall Impression — 9
This is one of my favourite albums of the moment. My fave songs from it are 'Thnks Fr Th Mmrs', 'Golden' and 'I'm Like A Lawyer'. If this broke, I'd buy it again. Patrick Stump's voice rocks, and it doesn't hurt that he's incredibly cute either. This is one to listen to.
