this song's boring as shit. even more so than their last single. i expect the very highest i'll be giving this album is 2.5, unfortunately. oh, well. what else should i expect from a band who's reuniting for money?

also, @J0ckstrapsFTW, they were pop punk back during their first two or three albums, but they've been largely pop rock since infinity on high.

Don't you guys understand what the music and the video is trying to say?
Rock N Roll is dying. Rap, Hip-Hop, Dubstep and other genres are destroying it! What it means is that not much people listen to Rock N Roll! That's why Fall Out Boy's album is titled "Save Rock N Roll"!

Saying this sounds like Patrick Stump's solo stuff is just proving to me that people pay way too much attention to the vocalists of bands. Yes, he has adopted the Michael Jackson influenced style permanently. No, the music itself does not sound like his solo stuff. If you think it does, you need a fucking musical education.

This is also proof that people know nothing about production. I'm willing to bet you don't so much hate the music as you hate how it's produced. Yes, the drums- particularly that kick- are very loud and very heavy in the mix. I would mix it differently, but this song is not synth pop like Stump's work just because you singled in on his voice and the kick drum.

That said, feel free to still hate it. It's just not like his solo work.

Soul Punk would never have had that guitar riff in the chorus- or in the verses, for that matter-, it would never be... The closest you get to this is "Explode". But even that is FAR more reliant on pop synth and sounds. It's just not the same style.

You people can't differentiate for shit. Yes, he brought some of what he did in his solo stuff to this. No, it doesn't sound just like his solo stuff. And, no, I'm not saying this sounds like old FOB. I'm just saying it doesn't sound just like Stump's solo stuff. For God's sake.

The song is unreasonably angry, it makes his usually good voice unusually annoying. Everything is overproduced. The use of strings doesn't really add to the song except make it more melodramatic. The chorus isn't so bad, but it's really generic.

1) You can make a drum kit sound like that. Easily. If these are "programmed", then most drums are "programmed".
2) If you have an issue with recording an orchestra and some percussive sounds, some synth bits/hits for good measure, to arrange and edit through out your song however you want... We are very different people. And I frankly consider that mindset the enemy of creativity.
3) There is guitar in this song, and if you can't hear it, your ears are broken or you listen to music on shitty speakers or through shit headphones/earbuds. It is in the verses, it is in the chorus, it is in the bridge.
4) You can't make out the bass. Welcome to most mainstream music.

You can keep disliking it. You don't like it. That's cool. But you don't need to claim they're "programmed" "beats", and other random crap. You don't even need a reason, dude.

Look at NapalmCrusader. He just hates it. He's not claiming it's all "programmed" "beats". And Cygnatti up there listed his reasons and... they're all mostly just how he feels, I get it. But for the grace of God I like the new sound. I could easily hate it, too. It's all preference.
