I find it very strange how fans of Fall Out Boy at the time hated this album. I mean, they managed to pull off a Lil Wayne feature well!

its good every song is a straight ass bop except its not as angsty as cork tree or infinity on high or take this to your grave so its not as good
i like imagining dads in the future pull out cds of albums like this, showing it to their kids, and saying "this, this is real music".

really standard pop rock album, id say even worse than cork tree because theres a lot more on this that feels more forgettable, at least to me. i remember there was some really fuckin weird singing and lyrics on some tracks with violin instrumentation, but it always felt really out of place. most memorable tracks were What A Catch, Donnie (cuz its so ... read more
