A.V. Club

Save Rock And Roll is the band’s most personal album yet, a tribute to being passionate and young when time makes the former difficult and the latter impossible. It’s an arena album that longs for small punk clubs.

Drowned in Sound

Save Rock and Roll isn't life or game changing but it's probably the album FOB needed to make - if only for themselves - and as an honest portrait of the roller-coaster ride that is FOB's career, it finds them on a high.

AllMusic

In 2013, when so many bands are donning tweed caps and pining for a past that never existed, it's kind of fun to have a band tackle the modern world in all its mess as Fall Out Boy do here.

PopMatters

At its best Save Rock and Roll is more than a Pop Tart it’s a musical anti-ageing pill.

NME

That's not to say this is a bad record, just one that's clearly in love with pop music, and one that'll require another leap of faith from the band's hardcore fanbase.

Consequence of Sound

If this is what rock and roll sounds like today, let the dogs of society howl.

I remember having good memories with this album. I know all the words to every song. I remember all the hooks, all the instrumentation and all of the fun moments of this album. I look back fondly on those memories as I grow older and have a new perspective on life.
Anyway this album is a bag of gross moldy dicks with maggots and poo poo coming out. Boring, badly written pop rock that has very little appeal. Nothing of this screams essential, apart from maybe 3 fun tracks. It's all ... read more

Fall Out Boy takes the punk out of their usual pop punk.

There are four reasons I’m rating this as high as I am:
1. Nostalgia.
2. I get to hear Big Sean, in a Fall Out Boy song, saying “Hell yeah I’m a dick, girl, addicted to you”.
3. Some of these lyrics are so cringe that they make me laugh and that makes me enjoy it.
4. The title track is genuinely a great song.

It's hilariously terrible, and is way worth your time in my opinion. It's so cheesy and bombastic, signaling a big turn for FOB. I had such high hopes after Folie a Deux, and they almost completely squandered it. But Save Rock and Roll is still a really entertaining album, if nothing else. I mean, they got fucking Big Sean on this, how can you say no to that?
