You'll be surprised at how good this is...

When Fall Out Boy first started touring, Patrick Stump used to warm up his vocal chords listening and singing along to an old Prince tape. Some 10 years later, his career has come full circle with a debut solo album full of soul, funk and artful weirdness that the symbol-loving, purple-catsuit-wearing midget would surely approve of. Many fans of Stump’s multi-platinum pop-punk endeavour might not appreciate the P-Funk of ‘Dance Miserable’, the bump of ‘Spotlight’ or the glam synth of ‘Run Dry’ but if a listener can loosen his or her mind there is plenty to admire on this effort. It’s good – really good – but only if you want it to be.
