I back that whole blurb on Folie hard. I fucking hated that album in 8th grade when it came out, love it as a senior. I still think 27, w.a.m.s., West Coast Smoker, Tiffany Blews and I Don't Care are terrible songs, but everything else has grown on me. I'd consider Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet the best song Patrick ever released and Water Buffalos and What a Catch aren't far behind. But boy did that album piss me off when it came out.
I didn't know anyone liked it until I started coming to AP.net a few years back. All of my friends in middle school hated it and all the Fall Out Boy fans I met in high school hated it too. Apparently it's everyone's favorite here.
I understand why you didn't like it considering you were in the 8th grade when it came out. Hands down their best album.
