Before "Centuries", before "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark", before "Thanks for the Memories", before the middle school emo anthems of "Dance, Dance" and "Sugar, We're Going Down", you had Fall Out Boy's debut album, Take This to Your Grave. If you ask a random person about Fall Out Boy, many wouldn't even have a clue about this album - after all, this was before their huge mainstream success with From Under the Cork Tree - and that's a sad, sad thing. Because as good as Fall Out Boy still is, they have never been this kind of good again. Coming along after the advent of bands like Green Day, and Blink-182 - Fall Out Boy was a new face in the punk scene that many believe, including myself, was the father of MODERN punk music. Take This to Your Grave is fast, powerful, raw and a little unhinged. Patrick Stump's loudly mumbled vocals are less of a problem and more of a feature, sounding fantastic against the heavy drums and...
Fall Out Boy is often written off by many music "critics" and even fans who call their music "emo". Whatever. I don't care what you call it, but compared to many other "bands" of today, FOB manages to make some pretty great music, all the while switching up their sound and keeping things fresh. I actually purchased Infinity On High and Folie before I picked up Take This To Your Grave. Naturally it wasn't the sound I was expecting to hear after listening to the aforementioned albums on repeat. Although I was surprised, it was in a good way, and I was really impressed by how much more "punky" this album sounded. I even liken it to some of Blink 182's earlier albums. If you are hung up on Fall Out Boy's over-played radio songs like "Sugar We're Goin Down" and "Dance Dance" you owe it to yourself to give their full albums a try. The music you don't hear on the radio isn't played on the radio for a reason...it isn't radio-friendly...
Took me back to childhood nostalgia with the guitar sound you can only get from the early 2000's nowadays. Used to hear bands like My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy all the time on the radio growing, so surprised i forgot about them until recently when i stumbled across them on youtube again and decided to buy every single one of their CD's i could get my hands on! In other words, GREAT BUY!
