Happy Birthday To FOB’s Folie à Deux – It’s Three Today
Joyeux Anniversaire Folie à Deux!
Today, December 16th 2011, Fall Out Boy’s fifth studio album celebrates it’s third birthday. It’s original due date was November ’08 but after deciding to stay in the womb a little longer it changed star sign making it a Saggitarius.
Irrelevant astrological references aside, Folie à Deux turns the not-so-big OH-THREE today – and sounds just as fresh as ever. From the hidden Lullabye to the closing ‘West Coast Smoker’, this album proves that FOB were never a ‘FAD’. And even if – dare I say it – this turns out to be their last, they ended on a high note. Despite not being FOB’s best selling album, the release still reached Platinum status in Australia, Gold certification in USA and a respectable Silver medal in the United Kingdom and charted in no less than 18 different countries.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE!
UPDATE: Patrick Stump tweets, can’t believe it’s been three years, reconsiders tracklisting:
Can you believe FAD is three years old?
What’s your favourite track (bonus or otherwise)?
