MANIA – Fall Out Boy: Full Album Review


Ranking the First 5 MANIA (Fall Out Boy) Songs – I previously ranked the first five songs of the album, but now that the entire album has been released I wanted to review it entirely.

10 – Young and Menace

Favorite line:

And I lived so much life, lived so much life
I think that God is gonna have to kill me twice

This song is actually enjoyable without the weird synthetic, electric stuff. But I can’t stand it because of it.

9 – Bishops Knife Trick

Favorite lines:

I’m sifting through the sand, sand, sand
Looking through pieces of broken hourglass
Trying to get it all back
Put it back together
As if the time had never passed

I don’t hate this song, but I don’t really like it much. Its alright I guess.

8 – Heaven’s Gate

Favorite line:

You’re the one, you’re the one
You’re the one habit I just can’t kick

I really do like this song. It doesn’t sound like Fall Out Boy, but I can appreciate the beautiful range of his voice in this one.

7 – Hold Me Tight or Don’t

Favorite line:

We weren’t lovers first
Confidants but never friends
Were we ever friends?

I enjoy this song a lot, but the lyrics are so very very weird.

6 – Church

Favorite line:

I am just a human trying to avoid my certain doom

I love this song, it just doesn’t sound like Fall Out Boy. More or less tied with Champion though.

5 – Champion

Favorite line:

I got rage every day, on the inside
The only thing I do is sit around and kill time

This song has grown on me a lot. More or less tied with Church.

4 – Sunshine Riptide

Favorite line:

The sign says don’t tap the glass
But I read it in reverse, ssalg eht pat t’nod syas ngis ehT

I really love this song, but the Burna Boy voice makes me want to kill things its so bad.

3 – Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)

Favorite line:

I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color

I still love this song.

2 – The Last of the Real Ones

Favorite line:

I wonder if your therapist knows everything about me

This was my favorite of the singles and it still holds up as one of the best.

1 – Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea

Favorite lines:

The only thing that’s ever stopping me is me, hey!
The only thing that’s ever stopping me is me, hey!
I testify if I die in my sleep
Then know that my life was just a killer dream, yeah

Seems like the whole damn world went and lost its mind
And all my childhood heroes have fallen off or died

Hands down best song on the album.
