I understand completely, P.S. I have blocked this band from my news feed NUMEROUS times, yet somehow it seeps through... also Fun. is an extremely talented band who (I feel) are 100% deserving of their success. Fall Out Boy seems like a band who saw the attention Blink-182 got by going on hiatus and followed in their footsteps almost as a marketing strategy. I'm 100% positive the "reunion" was planned from the start. Pete Wentz is a fucking tool, but I'm sure he's smart enough to know Ashley Simpsons albums sales won't pay his bills forever.
I added it for you. Should work.

10 track albums are the worst.

Like I said, I've filtered this band a few times. Not trying to be a dick, to each his own or whatever, but do you think this band really needs more exposure?

i mean, if you of all people are 100% positive, it must have been a publicity stunt. damn.

I don't post about bands because they need or don't exposure - I post about things I feel are interested or that I feel people want to read and discuss. I think Fall Out Boy are one of the top pop-rock bands out there.

shit man, this isn't their last album. i'll take a short, concise piece of work over an overloaded 14-17 song album with 4-5 tracks of filler any day of the week.
I dunno why so many people get bummed about how many songs a new album has. If they wrote 14 good songs they are happy with, they would have been on the album. I'm like you, I'd rather have something concise and consistent than bloated with filler.

Good length, imo. I don't like albums that are too lengthy.

Music news isn't just about exposure. It's about being up to date with the artists you care about. Heck, that's what any kind of news is about. What's new.

This. Speaking of filler, Panic's last album had like 11 songs and a ton of filler parts. I'm still disappointed in that album. But FOB songs aren't usually like that, so I've got my hopes up.
"Hurricane", "The Calendar", and "Sarah Smiles" are fantastic. I'd agree that the rest felt like filler. Still totally stoked for their new album, though.

The Calendar was one of only two songs I didn't think were awesome. "Trade Mistakes" is one of the best songs they've ever done.

Hey that ignore user functionality is pretty effective


back on topic: At first I thought that it would be lame to only have 10 songs but then I remembered how dense the last panic! album felt so maybe it won't be so bad
