Fall Out Boy - American Beauty / American Psycho

It sucks, but let's be honest, we all knew it would suck. I mean, sure, at least there's some improvement coming from "Save Rock and Roll", but, c'mon, it was way too hard to find something as bad as that album.

There are some fine songs that do make this a little better, "Irresistible" is kinda cute, and "The Kids Aren't Alright" is fine, but those two are seriously the only reason why I'm giving this a 40. "Uma Thurman" literally makes no sense, like, whose idea was it to grab The Munsters theme and combine it with the name of the actress from "Kill Bill"? Like, that alone shows how little direction this thing had aside from being a "fun" radio-friendly album.

This sucks, just like almost everything from Fall Out Boy, there was no reason for this band to reaunite after "Folie á Deux" but oh well, it is what it is. More than anything, this album serves as a warning sign for what was to come on the very next album.
