Off The Record – 2018 Album Special – MANIA, Fall Out Boy

It is coming to the end of the year which means that we are going to start looking at some of the albums that have been released over the past 12 months. Just like the regular version of this article we are only going to look at album tracks. Some we have mentioned in snippets before or even reviewed but some we haven’t even mentioned! Some we will not mention as we have done Off The Record articles on them recently. Today we look at an album that was released in January of this year – Mania, Fall Out Boy. 

Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea

 

True to Fall Out Boy form, the song titles are magic, they all are very different from any other band and would be something that other bands wouldn’t probably even dare to think of, just like the title of this track. This song is composed of lots of heavy guitars and drums with a really addictive chorus that is hard to stop listening to over and over again.

Heavens Gate

This song is another fantastic album track and has a different feel completely to the other tracks. It has underlying factors of a more blues/swing to it but the piano that intertwines between it and the really choral chorus really makes it a powerful song

Sunshine Riptide 

This song is a very different style for Fall Out Boy as it has a real summer feel with a reggae twist mixed in. It is a really nice mixture to have this song on the album because it refreshes it halfway through the album and makes it a great listening experience.
