Best Fall Out Boy AlbumsVote for your favourite or what you think is FOB's best album.
Its honestly so sad that this album was received so poorly, despite being one of the best albums I've ever heard in terms of individual song quality. You've got fantastically catchy tracks like "The (Shipped) Good Standard," "27," and "I Don't Care." You've got "What a Catch, Donnie," the best "best friends" song of the decade, featuring cameos from the biggest names in the pop-punk genre and even music itself. You've got high-flying tunes like "(Coffee's For Closers)" and "Disloyal Order of Water Buffalos." You've got the sinister beast "West Coast Smoker" to close out the album. And how could I forget "20 Dollar Nosebleed," which featured vocals from the one and only Brendon Boyd Urie, a legend in his own right. You don't get better than Folie. You just don't.
This is the best fall out boy album. I don't understand why it's so hated by a lot of people. It has catchy songs, my favorites being I don't care, disloyal order of water buffalo, and she's my winona. I also like Watch a catch, Donnie and headfirst slide. The best of course 20 dollar nosebleed. With a very close second being I don't care. It's a great album. I wish more people had liked it. I mean it is 10x better than Save Rock and Roll. It's creative and I've never really heard anything like it. That's why I love it. It's original and creative. FOLIE A DEUX.
The songs, especially the non-singles, on this album demonstrate a kind of maturity that I don't really see on other Fall Out Boy Albums. Folie marks a transition point where the band could musically and lyrically develop to a point to release a great album, but released it before what seemed to be the acquiescence to record company demands to sell more music with a very overproduced "Save Rock and Roll"...
I know Infinity On High and From Under The Cork Tree are better in most people's terms, but I love this album. That's not to say the other two aren't great, they're most definitely good, but this one takes the cake for me. Disloyal Order Of Water Buffaloes is a very lyrically thought out song, and it's great. I Don't Care is easily one of their best and She's My Winona is a beautiful song. I don't really like America's Suitehearts, but oh my god, Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown is amazing, in my opinion. The guitar riff, the words, everything. The Gold Standard and Coffee's For Closers are hidden gems, and What A Catch Donnie is a pretty nice ballad. 27 is incredible, Tiffany Blews isn't too great for me, though it is still a good song.W.A.M.S. is unskippable and 20 Dollar Nose Bleed is catchy like a stomach bug. A good stomach bug. And, I may be the only one, but West Coast Smoker is my favorite FOB song. It's terrific, and the screams make me wanna headbang!
This is a legendary Fall Out Boy CD! The musical style and Patrick Stump's vocals are awesome and amazing! The same can be said to Fall Out Boy's other releases, especially "Take This to Your Grave" and "Infinity on High". "From Under the Cork Tree" happens to be their best selling one too, it got the band recognized in the mainstream.
The album spawned 3 singles, of which 2 ("Sugar, We're Going Down" and "Dance, Dance") were monster hits on the charts (#8 and #9 respectively in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, which is even more massive because rock songs aren't as popular) and radio. Given that, all the songs on the record (besides "Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued", that song doesn't cut it for me) are worthy singles, and all should get massive radio play; much underrated. "Of All The Gin Joints In All The World", "Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner", "7 Minutes In Heaven (Atavan Halen)", "Sophomore Slump Or Comeback Of The Year", "Champagne ...more
To be fair, I'm torn between this and Take This To Your Grave as the best album. From Under The Cork Tree is one of the best albums, if not the best, of the early 2000's emo punk genre. I feel that Fall Out Boy learned what worked in TTTYG and just ran with it in FUTCT. So I guess this is slightly better than TTTYG in my opinion. Also some of the best lyrics I've ever heard in any song, album, genres, etc.
One of the albums with the best lyrics, and rhythm I've ever heard. Like hell, every single word is just so witty and full of rage you feel intimidated by its quality. The music's awesome too, especially on bonus song Snitches and Talkers get Stitches and Walkers. AMAZING album.
Okay, so I read (not entirely sure if it's true) that Pete titled this album after an excerpt from one of his favorite children's books. Now to me this album has always carried the same beautiful nostalgia as a children's book because I have grown up listening to this album, which also happens to be about growing up, and I have gradually understood the songs more and more as I've experienced things in life and this album just has so many brilliant lyrics, unheard musical virtuosity, and outright honesty that I think in a way it's almost the "Pet Sounds" of a new generation. Wonderful record, I could listen to it over and over every day and never get tired or bored of it!
My love for this album is bigger than any other album by Fall Out Boy, hence why I voted for it, of course. While I must say the music on their sophomore album 'From Under The Cork Tree' was a little better, and the lyrics on 'Folie À Deux', the album after Infinity on High, hits you more than on any other album - Infinity on High is pretty much an excellent mixture of the two.
The music, in comparison on From Under The Cork Tree, has been cleaned. If that is good or bad will vary from person to person, but with Patrick's vocals I think that it fits better if the sound is clean. Speaking of his vocals; Patrick has gotten a lot better since their earlier album. His voice is really clean cut and he takes high notes a lot better than earlier. He can also hold a note in general better and longer, as witnessed in such songs as "The Take Over, The Breaks Over" and The (After) Life Of The Party. He can also take low notes, such as in Thnks fr th Mmrs, but they sound ...more
"Golden" and "This Ain't a Scene, it's an Arm's Race" are two of the best songs ever. It has this amazing way of including the "From Under the Cork Tree" sound, and adding the sound of "Folie A Deux" to make a beautiful, polished sound. Patrick KILLS the vocals. When I first heard "Golden," I got chills because it is so amazing. No doubt, the best Fall Out Boy album EVER!
The lyrics in this album were just phenomenal. The guitars vocals and everything in this album is just great. I was blown away by this album.
This is definitely my favorite, followed up by Folie. I mean this album has a bunch of songs that are now FOB classics, including the song that coined the term 'Car Crash Hearts' and iconic masterpieces like 'Thnks fr th Mmrs' and 'I'm Like a Lawyer...'
This isn't a bad album. I don't understand why a lot of people don't like their post hiatus songs. This isn't my favorite album either, mine is Folie à Deux, but come on, this album is great. You've got badass angry songs such as The Phoenix and The Mighty Fall, emotional roller coasters such as Miss Missing You, Just One Yesterday and Save Rock and Roll, cute and happy songs such as Young Volcanoes and Alone Together, kickass songs such as Rat a Tat and My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark, and you've got the groovy bass in Where Did the Party Go. If haters of this album were really fans, they would still support Fall Out Boy through everything they release.
It is just an amazing album. The first song 'The Phoenix' Is one of the best songs ever and don't get me started on 'Where Did The Party Go' and 'Death Valley', And how could I forget 'Just One Yesterday'! What an amazing album!
I have recently gotten into Fall Out Boy, and got this album as my first introduction to their music. And it has become my favorite album in my entire library. Incredible songs.
Death Valley! Just One Yesterday! Where Did The Party Go! All these amazing songs... just because it's not FOB's old style (which I equally like) doesn't mean it deserves this much hate!
Come on people! This album is fantastic! Sure those other ones have"Dance, Dance", "Sugar, We're Going Down", and"Thnks Fr th Mmrs", but this one has their best songs! Like "Grand Theft Autumn/Where is Your Boy" and"The Pros and Cons of Breathing"! You people obviously haven't heard these songs, therefore you wouldn't vote for their best album ever (which actually stays true to the punk genre). In conclusion, I see a lot of ignorance around here...
This album is so underrated... I mean, opinions are opinions, and it may not be their #1, but it is definitely one of my favorites, because this album has NO TRACK that is skippable. I mean, every album has that one song, but no, this album doesn't. You just gotta listen through every single song.
Sometimes the first is the best, and I think that applies to take this to your grave. I like fall out boy's new stuff but I think the older stuff has a great vibe to it. Songs like grand theft autumn, tell that mick..., saturday and the patron saint... Make this album what it is today.
When an album opens with a line like that how could it not be #1?
"Light that smoke, that one for giving up on me, and one just cause they'll kill you sooner than my expectations."
If you like pop punk then this is your go-to FOB album.
Alright, let's make something clear: this was NOT a bad album. However, the reason why it's not my favourite is because it doesn't sound like Fall Out Boy. Joe is practically nonexistent (most songs drown him out with electro and sampled music), Andy's drumming could have been done electronically (they didn't give him a chance to be as creative as he was on their previous albums), and Pete wrote lyrics with Patrick Stump (that's nothing new, though). Patrick's singing style definitely changed post-hiatus, which I have mixed feelings about. Plus: you can actually understand 90% of the words he sings. Minus: His older singing voice was charming. I miss it.
Okay while I do like the old stuff better, this album wasn't so bad. I actually liked most of these songs, like Centuries and Novocaine. It's not a bad album and I wish the hyper-nostalgic pretentious @$$holes who dare to call themselves Fall Out Boy fans would stop hating on it so much.
This isn't my favorite album, but I don't know why so many people say that this has rubbish lyrics, like have you even heard "The Kids Aren't Alright" and "Jet Pack Blues"? The lyrics are so poetic and beautiful and for some reason no one else sees that. The music isn't bad at all.
This should be 2nd place at least. Much better songs than Save Rock and Roll. Not better then folie a deux but better than the others. I only have 2 words. Uma Thurman.
It's not bad! It's simple, short, and sweet. All of it was recorded in a span of 48 hours. Andy's drumming was excellent (especially in Love, Sex, Death), Joe and Pete rocked it on their guitars, and Patrick's singing was amazing (as usual). I love how they went back to their old style. 8/10
Not even that good
This album was decent. There are a couple songs that weren't for me but most of them were good. Yes, it's not like Fall Out Boy's older stuff at all, but it shows how far they've come and how their sound changed. Besides, if they kept the same sound that From Under The Cork Tree had, all their songs would sound the same. So stop hating on their new stuff just because you can't accept that they've evolved.
Hasn't been released yet (I'm writing on oct. 9, 2017) but three tracks from it have been released and I'm really excited
By far their best album.All the songs are amazing except Young and Menace and Sunshine Riptide.The last of the real ones is the best Fall out boy song
Well obviously it has to be this... I mean it has all the big hits on one CD. Yes, there are some great songs missing but in general this is still the best CD, and the title is excellent.
The cover of Beat It is better than the original in my opinion! I'm not hating on Mj, I just like the rock version better.
Simply Beautiful, I never thought that I would ever say that about an album but this one really surprised me.
This album is amazing! I like the acoustic versions of the songs on here more than the originals.
WHAT? This album is completely beautiful! Should be top 5.
Where is this
I agree, this album was bad. AB/AP was alright, but the remixes with the rap were just bad. This album didn't need to happen.
AB/AP was a mediocre album. And these remixes are absolute crap. Way to ruin the good tracks on the original album.
It's only three songs long, but definitely makes my top 3 for Fall Out Boy!
All around solid promotional material leading up to the release of Folie a Deux that was a nice preview for the upcoming records of Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, The Cab and the various other artists on the album.
Notable hits are: "Catch Me If You Can" and the original recording of "Lake Effect Kid".
I rate this album a solid CLINT SPARKS/10
