Fall Out Boy have finally released American Beauty/American Psycho after teasing us with gradual releases of singles from the album and it’s the bands first album since their 2013 comeback, Save Rock and Roll. Although we had already heard “Centuries”, “Immortals”, “The Kids Aren’t Alright”, “Uma Thurman”, “Irresistible” and “American Beauty/American Psycho”, Fall Out Boy have now introduced us to the rest of the album today, which includes unknown songs such as “Jet Pack Blues”, “Novocaine”, “Fourth of July”, “Favourite Record” and “Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC)”.
Overall, American Beauty/American Psycho, is more of a pop influenced album compared to the rock or pop-punk albums they have produced in the past. However, the band have injected some nostalgia, reminding older fans of previous work, through tracks such as “Novocaine” and “Centuries” and Patrick Stump’s rock toned vocals, whilst “Uma Thurman” and “The Kids Aren’t Alright” are to the lighter pop side. However, the contrast and change up of style has helped spark interest and has kept listeners engaged with it’s generally upbeat tempo. The full album is now available to download on iTunes.
