Dismantle.Repair. might not have been their greatest song melodically, and structurally it was a little bit awkward. But the story it told resonated with me so much as a suburban lower middle class...

The chorus sounds like Steve Winwood's "Higher Love."

Video actually helped me take the song more seriously. If this isn't a huge radio single, it will be one of the great pop injustices of the last decade.

I liked it but this one is still my favorite:

Is it me, or does Patrick seem much more the band leader than he used to be?

i feel like that horn riff was way better in their heads than it is in reality. the song needs a little more variety; the bridge is a nice breather, but it's not enough. i liked the video though:...

This never bothered me before, but I find it kind of annoying now how so much of Fall Out Boy's lyrics are a commentary on their own career. Also, I seem to be the first to say this, but I don't...

Listening to this album, I feel sad because after nearly a decade-long run, I've finally outgrown this band. At first blush, it strikes me as a very modern pop record, which is neither here nor...

My god, does Patrick sound fantastic. But the lyrics are shite, and it appears musically that I've outgrown them, which is sad. But I wish them all the luck and it would be cool to see them take over...

This is obviously deeply personal for the guy. FOB's career was basically hijacked by a shitton of ignorant hate. I remember telling people how much I liked Folie a Deux and they just laughed at me...

Actually, I did. It's a great song musically, regardless of whether you think the words are pretentious or hypocritical or whatever.

I think that falls more under "song I hate that everyone else loves." If you pressed him, I'm sure he wouldn't say it's a bad song, just massively overrated.

Brandon's a killer vocalist, but this song has yet to grow on me. It's a shapeless mass, no tune, no hook, no direction, nothing to keep my attention really. Lots of bluster and bravado, no real...

Not gonna lie, this album is awesome. I dig it a helluva lot more than Resistance. First three tracks are super solid, other standouts were "Follow Me" and "Big Freeze." I hated Liquid Space, but the...

Here Comes My Man intro is great, sounds like early R.E.M. Biloxi Parish ended up being one of my favorites, that song hits so hard.

Howl sounds the closest to punk on that album, so the short length makes sense. Ever listened to the Ramones?

Man, those old dudes can sing. And that video was way more hipster (in a good way) than I was expecting, did not expect it to be that awesome.

I can't speak for Carly Rae, but fun. is definitely one of the best live acts in music today. There are few pop tenors as natural and consistently spectacular as Nate Ruess, not to mention the...

Does anyone else think the guitar parts in the verse sound a little like Anberlin? It's kind of a weird connection to make, but that's what I hear.

Love the song by the way, color me convinced. The...

They're both by the Gaslight Anthem...and that's about the only similarity which comes to mind. Given, it's pretty hard to tell from a thirty second clip, but still.
