I would love to go somewhere that does this, to just read everyone’s secrets.
I still love him. 2 boyfriends and 5 years later.

ALBUM OF THE MONTH by Josh from You Me At Six
Fall Out Boy - Folie A Deux
It’s very interesting to review the album of a band with whom you’ve toured, and been a fan of for years. My band, You Me At Six, played with Fall Out Boy at La Cigale in Paris, on 13th October this year. The concert was sold out and FOB’s worldwide success doesn’t seem to be about to stop. Allow me to start by saying that I love Fall Out boy, and that I love Folie A Deux. Everytime the band drops a new album, it’s very different while keeping all the aspects that you’ve loved on the previous albums. On this record, they sound more mature, “they” as people and as musicians. And the lyrics don’t seem, this time, to be commenting Pete Wentz’ last lovelife troubles. I do not know if this record possesses hits as big as “Sugar, We’re Going Down” or “Dance Dance”, and I do not know if people will understand it at once. Folie A Deux is a very good record, but you’ll have to listen to it a second time to get it. For exemple you can find different instruments, like trumpets and orchestra arrangements that bring a more classic element. “I will never believe in anything again” on “(Coffee’s For Closers)” is quite a strong stance to take, but we all know Fall Out By can afford such remarks. Anyway, the band must continue to believe in Folie A Deux (NB : don’t know what he meant.)… The album also counts a featuring of Lil Wayne, and after Jay-Z’s contribution to Infinity On High, you can say that FOB gave themselves the mission to break the genres and to really put pop in their pop-punk. It’s definitely an album that is more melodic than any of the others, it’s a sign that times change, and if you want to earn the “Kings of Pop-punk” crown, you’ll have to put the bar high. I Don’t Care is an enormous hit that you’re going to sing your head off to, and it’s also useful to tell your parents what you really think (laughs). But for me, the songs that really stand out are “America’s Suitehearts”, “The Shipped Gold Standard” and “(Coffee’s for Closers)”. In conclusion, it’s very hard to see Fall Out Boy anywhere else than on top. This said, they already are, watching the rest of the rock scene on the corner of their eyes, laughing while knowing that nobody can reach them, and probably never will. If you want incredible pop songs, big choruses and weird yet intelligent lyrics, you want this record. Be sure that 2009 belongs to no one but FOB.
I want to take all these rooms and put them in that house and make it my dream home
