New Music: Fall Out Boy “Save Rock and Roll”
The fact that I don’t hate Fall Out Boy has already been established. And now, with the advanced stream of their album Save Rock and Roll available for streaming RIGHT. FUCKING. NOW. it actually leans closer to like than anything else. I’ve listened to this album album straighthrough… twice. Ten years ago Hugh is totally ok with this. He kind of loves this. Present Hugh isn’t mad about it either. In fact, it’s so good that I’m having trouble picking a favorite song and that’s something I never thought I’d say about Fall Out Boy. In all seriousness though, how do you pick between collab joints featuring Courtney Love and Elton John? That’s like a fat kid trying to decide between a sheet cake and swimming Scrooge McDuck style in a vat of Swiss Miss? Did they “Save Rock and Roll?” I’m not quite sure about that, but I never really considered them R&R in the first place. For my money, I’d take a ride on their R&R trip though. You know, if you couldn’t just click play and stream the whole damn thing for free.
