From Under the Cork Tree

[rating:4.0]

This is the Limited “Black Clouds and Underdogs” Edition.

I know Fall Out Boy has been played to death in the US, but they’re really not THAT well known here in Denmark, except for maybe “Dance, Dance”. I’ve been listening quite a bit to some of these 18 tracks (some of which you can hear samples of below), but there’s a also a lot of tracks I find mediocre. The comparison to Panic! At The Disco is inevitable and I must say that Fall Out Boy just don’t do the same thing for me.

The Limited “Black Clouds and Underdogs” Edition was released in December of 2005, featuring three new songs, remixes of “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down” and “Dance, Dance”, and on the iTunes-exclusive version, their respective music videos.

(via Wikipedia)

Below I’ve intentionally avoided choosing “Dance, Dance”, “Sugar We’re Goin’ Down” and “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More ‘Touch Me’”, as I bet everybody have heard them.

I’ve Got a Dark Alley and a Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth” (Summer Song)

My favorite song (not counting the first 3 singles - I like “Dance, Dance” the most I think) on the album.

Our Lawyer Made Us Change the Name of This Song So We Wouldn’t Get Sued

The ribbon on my wrist says, “Do not open before Christmas.”

Perfect for this time of year.

Sophomore Slump Or Comeback of the Year

Another of my favorite songs.

Of All the Gin Joints In All the World

There’s something about this song that makes me happy.

Nobody Puts Baby In the Corner

I like the beginning a lot.

Champagne For My Real Friends, Real Pain For My Sham Friends

An OK song.

Back when I posted this I actually didn’t mean to include that last sentence: “On the back cover…”. Now that I look back and read this post I wonder why I copy+pasted that as well. Also I wonder why it said that on Wikipedia.
