Love them or loath them FOB won't be ignored! Folie À Deux is the fifth album from a band that have shifted over six million records worldwide, so it's safe to assume they're doing something right. Success aside, FOB have not been without their critics, having been accused of dubious pop-punk authenticity and songs prizing "ooh la la's" over substance, which have prevented the band from being taken seriously. That ends here! Folie À Deux is a non-stop exotic cabaret for the ears, delivering a far-reaching selection of songs that leap between a blend of catchy pop punk like Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet to the grandiose Disloyal Order Of Water. It's a pick 'n' mix approach that was either going to see them crash and burn - or raise the stakes on the future capabilities of the band. Having upped the ante, it's impossible to dismiss these gentlemen as a one trick pony. The new album is a crazed cacophony of crashing drums, guitars, and experimental distortion. To top it off, guest artists include Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry and Lil Wayne. Occasionally repetitive, but never dull, there is enough familiarity to keep old fans loyal, but this is a mature move forward which will see new fans welcomed into the FOB fold.
