So. MANIA, Fall Out Boy’s upcoming album, was postponed a while ago, because it wasn’t as good as it could be. A Decision I support, because the first couple songs they released off the album weren’t their best.
But now, I’m getting impatient, so I’m been listening to the five MANIA songs thus far released. And now, I’m going to rank them.
The album is now set for release on Jan. 19th 2018.
5 – Young and Menace
This wouldn’t be bad if it wasn’t for the electric/autotune thing. It doesn’t sound like FOB AT ALL. Its weird. Not terrible. But its so so weird.
And I lived so much life, lived so much life
I think that God is gonna have to kill me twice
4 – Champion
Look. I like this song, but a lot of people don’t. Its catchy, but it doesn’t sound much like FOB and listening to it repeatedly grates your nerves a little. Good lyrics though.
I’m calling you from the future
To let you know we made a mistake
And there’s a fog from the past
That’s giving me, giving me such a headache
3 – Hold Me Tight or Don’t
This is where the songs start getting legitimately good. It even sounds like FOB, but the lyrics are extremely weird and don’t really make sense, so its smack in the middle here.
I love you to death but I just can’t
I just can’t pretend
We were lovers first
Confidants but never friends
Were we ever friends?
2 – Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)
This one might have been a real contestant for first if we had a proper release instead of just live recordings. I love the lyrics and the music of this one, A LOT.
If I could get my shit together
I’m gonna run away and never see any of you again
Never see any of you again
I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color
When they make a darker color
1 – The Last of the Real Ones
This is hands down the best song so far. Though, Wilson may give it a run for its money when we get a proper release. Its catchy, its good great lyrics, and ITS SOUNDS LIKE FOB!
