Save Rock and Roll is the fifth studio album by the American rock band Fall Out Boy. It was produced by Butch Walker and released April 16, 2013, through Island Records.
Following multiple touring stints and a mixed fan reaction to fourth record Folie à Deux (2008), the members of Fall Out Boy decided to take a break at the end of 2009. During the hiatus, each member of the group pursued individual musical interests. The band felt it necessary to decompress and refrained from referring to the hiatus as a "breakup", promising to return in the future.
After several reformation attempts, the album was recorded in secrecy at Rubyred Recordings in Venice, California, beginning in the fall of 2012. The album sessions were marked by a desire to reinvent the band's sound in a more modern form, with more emphasis on pop music. The band brought in producer Butch Walker for a fresh approach, marking their first time without longtime producer Neal Avron. In the band's new form, each member of the quartet was involved in crafting the compositions, although sessions were initially difficult as they struggled to reconnect. Save Rock and Roll features guest vocals from Foxes, Big Sean, Courtney Love, and Elton John (who sings on the album's title track).
Save Rock and Roll debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, earning the band their second career number one. Its lead single, "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)", has achieved platinum certification in the U.S. and charted worldwide.
Rolling Stone described the band's comeback as a "rather stunning renaissance", and the record received positive reviews upon its release, although most music critics were hesitant to refer to the album as solely a rock record. The group followed the record release with the Save Rock and Roll arena tour in promotion, with European and US legs announced, as well as club shows and TV performances. The band is in the process of filming and releasing music videos for every track on the album in an ongoing series titled The Young Blood Chronicles.
Long story short, I thought that "Infinity On High" and "Folie A Deux" were impressive rock records. They showed incredible growth in both structure and songwriting. Not to mention the fact that Patrick Stump grew to become one of the most unique and soulful singers in reecnt memory. The guy has R&B in his throat, and when he puts that to rock music, it's some bizarre combination of Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury mixed together with a kid who grew up on punk rock.
"ambitious, admirable, and sometimes thrilling, particularly because the group never fears to tread into treacherous waters, happy to blur the distinctions between pop and rock, mainstream and underground."
