fall out boy
american beauty / american psycho
Continuing their evolution from emo-punk wunderkinds to bona fide global pop superstars, Fall Out Boy’s sixth album is a familiar but undeniably thrilling blend of soaring vocals and irresistible rhythms.
As with its predecessor ‘Save Rock and Roll’, ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ sees the band stretching ever further from their punk roots, augmenting their spiky guitars with drop beats and MTV synths and samples from cult 60s tv – but it works, the result a genre-trashing tour-de-force of high emotion and aural e-numbers, sonically innovative and stunningly produced. “American Beauty/American Psycho is a fine modern pop record, home to enough hits to ensure Fall Out Boy remain perched high upon their throne as undisputed rulers of the pop rock world” music feeds
