Fall Out Boy 11/17/2009

Review

Appearing four years after “Sugar, We’re Going Down” turned Fall Out Boy into genuine rock stars, and covering just four albums, 2009’s Believers Never Die: The Greatest Hits is a surprisingly addictive hits record, a hyper-charged testament to Fall Out Boy’ s grandiosely self-deprecating, self-aware, emo-pop. Taking loud fast rules to a stylized extreme, Believers Never Die cuts away any remnants of slow songs -- the acoustic guitars and lack of drums on “Yule Shoot Your Eyes Out,” one of four new songs or rarities, gives the illusion that it’s slower than it is - FOB piles up hooks and words with a smirky abandon, the sincerity of singer Patrick Stump and sarcasm of bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz tied together by a shared love of arena-punk: guitars from Van Halen, melodies from Queen, outlook from the alt-rock revolution. The group's hooks burrow deep and Fall Out Boy seems like one of the quintessential mainstream rock singles bands of the 2000s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
