Save Rock And Roll by Fall Out Boy
Released: Apr 2013
Do Fall Out Boy actually save rock and roll? That depends on your definition of rock music. The band does rawk, at times; yet most of the record's high-energy stomping-n-bopping is far more rooted in club pop, electronica and Eurovision-style histrionics. The record opens in over-the-top fashion with "The Phoenix," a war chant that sounds like The Osmonds' "Crazy Horses" filtered through both Bounce-era Bon Jovi and M83. Amazingly, the soaring title track is even more audacious: big room electro-gospel featuring ivories and voice from none other than Sir Elton, the original king of bombast!
