I've got a feeling that all the teenage girls will be screaming over these guys soon, if they aren't already.

This record is polished pop-punk with hooks up the wazzoo, in a cardboard case plastered with pics of the band showing off their tattoos and Converse low-tops. And with lines like "I want to hate you / half as much as I hate myself" even the young "emo" girls may fall for them. Check the back of the CD to find titles like "The Pros and Cons of Breathing," "Sending Postcards from a Plane Crash (Wish You Were Here)," and the Most ?ber-emo Song Title Award goes to "Reinventing the Wheel to Run Myself Over."

Here you'll find a sound reminiscent of Midtown as well as Chicago peers Knockout and Starstruck, with a dash of Taking Back Sunday style lyrics. Seriously though, these guys have some good tunes if you can get past the unoriginality. Warning: the song "Dead on Arrival" will have the lyrics "This is side one / flip me over / I know I'm not your favorite record / The songs you grow to like / never stick at first / so I'm writing you a chorus / and here is your verse" stuck in your head, whether you like it or not. These guys follow the tested formula with hooks galore, studio-polished vocal harmonies, and the uptempo-breakdown-uptempo roadmap, all with production up to the par with some major-label pop punk records.

Some of the better tracks include the old Saves the Day style "The Patron Saint of Liars and Fakes" with that one squeaky high note leading into the sing-able chorus, punk ballad "Saturday" (despite the out of place thunderous screaming in the background), and the aforementioned "Dead on Arrival." All the tunes are decent, they just all give me déjà vu.

Even though they are at no forefront of anything, these boys will go far with their tight and catchy pop punk, played from behind an emo attitude. Despite the pleas of many of you who I'm sure will comment on the board, Fall Out Boy may be making it big soon.

this is a great pop-punk (or whatever genre you'd prefer to call it) album. lyrically, it stays honest and emotional without the pretension of some of fall out boy's more recent work. musically, it's straight ahead with memorable licks and hooks. the guest spot with the dude from mcs is a nice touch too. overall, a great (and fun) album. definitely a grower

KlaymanKavalier (December 23, 2007)

I will give it to them. They have really good hooks for those not looking for any bit of depth in music. But musically I get dissapointed. The song "Thanks for the Memories" sounded like a commercial song to me at first making fun of them. The chorus is a bit catchy, but please, honestly, dig through your stack of cds and find My Chemical Romance's album "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" and listen to "To the End." FOB totally ripped the vocal melody straight from them and the string orchestra sound is as if they took sheet music from MCR, changed keys, and didnt distort it. That is all. Goes from passion to fame so quick and easy doesn't it?

ok everybody on here saying FOB needs to fuck off and everybody who likes them can 2....NEEDS TO FUCK off themself!!! not everybody has to same opionions as u!!! sp just keep ur f*cking opionions 2 urself! u know what?! i LOVE FOB! see i dont have to same opionion as u haters do! so u know what?!?!!?!? all u haters on FOb can F*CK OFF AND GO TO MOTHER F*CKING HELL!!!!

pitoresco (June 11, 2007)

Although i'm not a big fan of the whole 2000's mall punk thing, i liked FOB. They are fucking sellouts, as the shitty last album demonstrated, but they are (were?) very talented and this album is very good.?One last thing about some comments: you guys that say that this band is gay because they sing about girls are just stupid. The emo culture is plain shit, but has also dumbed some people down.

I hated Infity on High and From Under Cork Tree
but some howTake This To Your Grave just clicked
with Lifetime and Saves The Day style songs this is a must album for any indie rock fan

ROCKon_and_F-CKoff (April 26, 2007)

OK.... I'm sorry... this is my personal opinion... normally I don't like to rag on other people's favorite bands... but... Fall Out Boy SUCKS they are POSERS Pete Wentz is a FAGGOT with a huge ego, they have NOOOO talent, they name their songs gay-shit stuff that has nothing to do with the actual song, they AREN'T EMO AT ALLLL they aren't even pop-punk, they're like total POP-SHIT and I HATE them!! Everyone thinks they're emo and moody and brooding because they listen to fuckin' FALL OUT BOY well maybe you should get you HEAD out of your ASS and find some REALLY GOOD MUSIC. The GOOD music hardly ever gets played on the radio anyway. So.... sorry for offending anyone... really... but, there's much better music out there. Sorrry.

This band is not only amazing, but original and catchy too. I saw them live at warped tour houston and to say they suck would be WAY off. You may not like their sound, their lyrics, or instruments, but they dont suck. Buy a warped tour ticket, watch them, and then talk trash.... i guarantee you wont

This record is a fun listen. Nothing groundbreaking but I can't find any duds.

Whoever said it sounds like the singer of Less Than Jake got it pretty close. Patrick sounds like a hydrid between Chris and Roger, IMO.

nuthinbutdisastor (January 11, 2005)

there are things i know, and i know that fall out boy, is a good band with a great future ahead of them, although they sorta sound like "new found glory" but they have more talent and actually mean wat they are singing. good music=good band, doesnt matter wat genre u want to put them uunder.
if it were up to me i would abolish the creation of genres and lite fire to every person that does notstray from there little world of there genre.

Anonymous (November 13, 2004)

Seriously. People have got to stop just dismissing bands because they are considered "emo" or "pop-punk". It's not about what slot they fall into but the music, it's about what the music means to you. This album is full of great catchy songs you will be singing for days, and it's not just that the lyrics are catchy they are actually well thought out and writen. I am pretty sick of all you "hard-core punk" kids putting down anything that doesn't sound like The Clash (although they were amazing) they are long gone now and things are different. This band deserves to go far.

Anonymous (August 18, 2004)

It seems that people cannot get enough of an ego boost than when bagging on an up and coming band. Personally, I think that most of the songs on this cd rock. I think the lyrics are kind of funny and cool. These guys probably have the best sound when comparing other bands that are in the same category. I don't know about this "pop-punk" or "pop-emo-punk" crap, I just know that when you stop putting labels on everything and comparing it with bands that you think have never sold out, you will find more bands to enjoy and not sound like such a whiny bitch.

Anonymous (August 16, 2004)

humm.....Pop Punk Emo....I think those are kids who go to Hot Topic and dress like the fashionable "punk" and listen to Pussy Punk (aka Pop Punk) that suck, not even GOOD pop punk (if that even exists) and then just act like complete pussies when any kind of "emotion" comes along and drag the whole bloody thing out....I know someone exactly like that....Its sick...

Oh yes and getting back to the band:
-Kind of Boring
-All the music kind of sounds the same
- lame lyrics

but besides that, their not that bad...they do sound Emo though...

I just recently picked up this album. Overall, I am very satisfied with the album. After buying this album, I am interested in buying:

? Project Rocket Spilt, as well as the;
? Fall Out Boy demo.

...I will continue to comment on Fall Out Boy as I buy and wear out their albums. And yes, I highly recomment this pop punk album.

Anonymous (July 21, 2004)

Wow, can't understand you all. This is by far, the best pop punk album out. It is not "pop punk emo." What in gods name is that? Don't start creating your own genres.

As a matter of fact, it dosent get much more pop punk than them. New Found may be a bit more but they are right behind.

After listening to this album once, every song stuck in my head. It is just too good. I saw them live too, they are wonderful.

Oh, and why are people so against pop punk reviwing pop punk albums? Its rediculous. This reviews are so biased they are almost sickening to read.

FOB is getting big and fast. The album is good but seeing them live is what makes them so popular. I saw them last november opening for LTJ and Yellowcard and they had a mediocre set but, I've seen them twice since and they've become more amazing each time. I just hope MTV and other shitty radio stations don't catch on and ruin them. Emo girls are one thing, that's all good but, when the stupid ignorant chicks hear bands on mtv or kiss fm and come to concerts they're a real pain in the ass (see: a Dashboard concert)

KathleenNicole (June 30, 2004)

FOB is soo great! and yes the teenage emo girls are already screaming over them. And if ya really wanna hear somethin interesting, listen to Grand Theft Autumn on a fucked up computer that's sound chip fast forwards everything. That's how I heard it first. I was kinda disappointed though when I found out they don't really sound like that because his voice resembled the guy from Coheed. But none the less, they still rock

titsandtats (June 24, 2004)

fallout boy is a good band, this album doesnt really showcase their talents. it makes them sound very mediocre. check out the accoustic album they released in may 04. its much better. but i am a sucker for anything accoustic...

These guys are awesome! Have you HEARD Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy Tonight? That is one of the best pop-punk emo songs every written!

First 3 songs are pretty good, fine to listen to. The rest just doesn't catch on.

I am a fan of emo and pop-punk but these guys overdo it. It's just too...ah, man, I have no clue how to describe it. Shitty singing, I guess.

yea they are good, if this cd came out 2 or 3 yrs ago. it just sounds like through being cool era saves the day, w/ a touch of just about every other big pop punk band of the past 3 yrs ie. nfg, taking back sunday, brand new. mostly ripping off saves thd day and taking back sunday. first 2 tracks are great though

Anonymous (December 12, 2003)

Wow what a rip-off of Saves The Day, New Found Glory, and especially Taking Back Sunday. The last song's chorus is exactly the same as the third song on Taking Back Sunday's "Tell All Your Friends" Now that that's out of the way, this band is awesome, pretty good lyrics. Good rhythm guitar too, it's fun to play.

to the fall out boy experts: if you hate them so much, how come you took so much time to find out fake information about sean o'keefe playing music on the record? you know o'keefe is a drummer, right? not a guitar or bass player. they may suck, but don't start idiotic rumours as such.

hey gutterhippo - you will like this album. Dead on Arrival is a stand out track, but the rest are pretty much up to par. It's that simple, if you like pop punk, you will like these guys cause they do it well. If you're looking for something new look elsewhere.

gutterhippo (May 10, 2003)

I heard "Dead on Arrival" by them and decided that I would buy the CD the first chance I got. Then I read this review and got to thinking that this song might just be the standout hit song and that the rest of the cd is gonna suck. does anyone have this cd, and if you do, can you tell me if "Dead on Arrival" (or either of the 2 other songs on their mp3.com page) is representative of the album? So far I've heard everyone say that this is a shitty band (but what else should I expect from this site). so keeping in mind that I actually like pop punk and I like one of their songs, can anyone convince me to buy/not to buy this album?

arma angelus was the best thing in chicago for a while. i worked with tim miller the old drummer of arma, and he introduced me to so many good hc bands. along with so many horrible 80's cock rock bands. Arma should release the Kill Latin cd like the were planning, so we can have one last thing to listen to. i would love that. FOB is simply good too. its as if anythin wentz is involved with is good. all the creeps in fob are fucking amazing, they all play there instruments so well, and they can all do it while jumping, spinning, and going crazy. just because you other kids arent part of a band half as good as fob, you talk shit. support chicago, support fob. get good then talk

To anonymous down below....The band that FOB played with in January and stole their album title from was Divide by Zero. Before that show, FOB's album was supposed to be called "evening out with your girl" or something along those lines. That's what I was told. But after that show, it was "take this to your grave" which is a DBZ song. It was obvioulsy stolen.

There are NO good pop-punk bands in Chicago. FOB, Knockout, Startstruck all suck. FOB sounds like New Found Glory. These guys sell out the Metro because there's a huge scene for little girls who listen to Good Charlotte, Blink182, and smaller bands like Knockout. They're completely seperated from the rest of the scene around here, for the most part. There's a huge crowd difference from almost everything else and the "pop-punk crowd" around here. I figure that's how it is in other cities too.

taking back sunday didn't break up. one of the band-members' family members died. they're not breaking up as a result; its just that maybe some websites aren't bringing in enough hits as they should be so they post some stupid rumor.

you ever have this dream where you're standing next to someone at their house and they get in an argument with some other spanish kid and before you know it the spanish kid shoots the kid standing next to u because he was fuckin around w/ the spanish kid's girl? it was so crazy, i got shot too there was like 4 bullet holes in my nose and it was gushing out blood and snot, i didnt realize someone got shot until they started chasing the spanish kid around the house. they killed him too. but after 2 people died everyone started joking around about it...even though it was probably traumatizing for the five people there.

tons of producers play on albums like the latest from the starting line produced by trombino, which he played all the drums on. And Dont Look Down also had their producer play drums on start the show.

how come you have nothing better to do than sit around and whine about stuff you wrote not getting posted? Start your own fucking site, shitbag.

Yo Scott how come my news about Get around records signing two of the best bands in the scene "The Lost Boys" and "Holdens Catch" didnt get posted but crap about Good Charlotte Contests does?

to the kid who wrote about how the producer played the instruments. you are an arrogant prick. if they dont play there instruments explain to me why everyone including myself raves about there live show. you can't. maybe it is unoriginal. but you know what they fucking do it well. joe is a great guitarist, and its about fucking time they get some recognition. good job, pete,joe, andy, and patrick. go check out all of there former bands. and defenittely go check out Arma Angelus. im crying now cause they are no more.

i recently heard that Taking Back Sunday broke up! can anyone clarify this for me?

They sound like a mix of Brand New, Alkaline Trio, and Taking back sunday, which is always a good thing.

these guys can't play their instruments. it's true, the producer played all the bass and rhythm guitar tracks on this CD. if you don't believe me, ask the band. When did Fueled By Ramen become such a shitty label?

To the anonymous guy 2 posts down:
There's currently 33 reviews in the queue. I try to post live reviews right away so they're still topical, and as for new releases, the reviews that are of CDs that are mailed to us *for* review get precedence on posting. Dischord doesn't send us stuff to review, so their stuff doesn't get bumped up front. Take it up with them.

Your review will be up sooner or later, just be patient.

Hey man, in case you didn't read the review, I didn't like this CD all that much. Say what you will about the band, but I simply reviewed it because that's why it was given to me. Feel free to bug Scott about you review, but dont drag me into this.

Scott.....this shit gets posted and my black eyes review doesn't?!

If a friend of mine made me listen to this they would no longer be my friend, and this CD would no longer be in one piece. Funny thing is, my best friend's sister loves these guys and has a picture with them that she probably dry humps.

"This record is polished pop-punk with hooks up the wazzoo"

That just explains it all doesn't it.-the phantom-
