What an amazing development: the former Punk Pop brats seem to be full-fledged musicians right now. The boys from Chicago start rocking like usually with "I don’t care", but "Headfirst slide into cooperstown on a bad bet" and "America’s suitehearts" are cleverly arranged Power Pop tracks, whereas "What a catch, donnie" strikes you as a bombast Soul-laden ballad. Friends and colleagues Panic At The Disco, Elvis Costello, Gym Class Heroes, The Academy Is and Blondie front lady Debbie Harry also helped out which adds some extra versatility to this fifth studio output of the quartet. The more unwieldy, but nevertheless good "Tiffany blews" and "W.a.m.s." were recorded in collaboration with Hip Hop honchos Lil’ Wayne resp. Pharrell Williams (The Neptunes, N.E.R.D.). In spite of all these guest appearances, "Folie à deux" never seems to be overdone - it is a remarkably homogenous release.

Often named as the reason the boys went on hiatus, this album was not received well by fans back in its release, I have no idea why, it is my favourite of all FOB discography
Containing the most beautiful song what a catch Donnie and real bangers like American sweet hearts this is a must have for any fall out boy or pop punk fan
The cover art is beautiful so unique and interesting
The title along with the lyrics are once again something really unique, and are a credit to mr Pete wentz himself
