A few minutes into Save Rock And Roll, the epiphany hits that the world is a better place with Fall Out Boy in it. After a three-and-a-half-year hiatus, they are back with a delightfully over-the-top record brimming with dance-infused rock and ginormous pop hooks. Look out for cameos from all over the spectrum from Big Sean to Courtney Love and Elton John. Bonus! Save Rock And Roll is hardly a nostalgia record. The band picked up right where they left off and continued pushing forward. On Save Rock And Roll, they have learned some new tricks and some of the songs sound rather “clubby”, but essential elements like the soulful nature of Patrick Stump’s voice and delightful wit of Pete Wentz’s lyrical word play anchor the album as another FOB classic. Check it out. It should leave fans grinning ear to ear.
Essential tracks: “Alone Together” “Just One Yesterday” & “Young Volcanoes”
