When I heard that Fall Out Boy was coming back I felt like a 15 year old again. At the same time I was a little bit cautious that their comeback would not be good like when the Jonas Brothers got their single for Pom Poms out and it was just weird. I used to love them.
So I waited and when the first single came out (My Songs know what you did in the dark (light em up)) I was curious, it didn’t convince me though. The music video was also interesting. Then, The Phoenix came out and the music video did as well. I obsessed. Not only they are a more mature band, but also they each are able to take their place. When they first started Pete Wentz was the main one, the one everyone wanted to see. Usually the singer is the one most people are interested in, but not with Fall Out Boy. Now, after each went their own way; and Patrick Stump had a career as a solo artist he has gained enough confidence to be a lead singer.
Save Rock and Roll is a good album, it is not out of this world different from their previous work but their essence is there. They have come back with more energy and each track in the album is something you can listen to over and over.
The most interesting part of the music videos for Save Rock and Roll is that their concept is being reveled bit by bit. They have made a music video for each song of the album and are releasing them slowly. Keeping all fans at the edge of their seat because there is also a storyline to follow in each video.
