Have you ever wondered why most of people prefer from under the cork tree?
People often say: "I knew FOB when I heard dance dance in the radio".
That's just one of the points. This was their more successful single ever – a well-done video, an infectious refrain and an extraordinary lyric.
Moreover, the guys were in the apogee. They were too pretty, too young – they're still so – and their previous album was unique, heavy and sentimental; and it also brought a positive expectative to fans. They weren't so amateurs, but in same time they were new faces. That's the shocking, man.
It was not only full of several influences, but also full of impacting songs, with impacting lyrics.
And it's not just because this CD has nineteen tracks. The bonus tracks are good, but FUTCT is not so amazing because of them. That's so mixed-up. The guys made-up and signed their style with this CD, and is so hard to us accept that they are the same guys who made IOH, the same guys who made FAD. Baby, seasons change but people don't. They're older, they're different. And, even if hidden, they still keep some elements of the FOB we know that will never change. It's a relief know that they're still the band who made us fall in love.
Oh yeah, you said "I was fan before to this success!".
I wasn't, because I was too young when they launched the first CD.
And I honestly don't know if somebody can love a band with a CD like EOWYG.
I hear people say that IOH is terrible, but I really prefer infinitely infinity on high than evening out with your girlfriend.
So let's stop this idle talk and comment some songs.
Look at of all the gin joints in all of the world. Heavy and sentimental. Just like tell that Mick he just made my list of things to do today. This song made me get familiar. It's so good to see a band hit in the choice of its style in a CD, and keep this style in the next one, but adding new elements. That's exactly what is from under the cork tree. A pleasure mixture of the best elements of take this to your grave with another new elements, creating a superb album.
Now look at 7 minutes in Heaven – a new style that pleased us all. This song is just the opposite of XO, I've got a dark alley and a bad idea that says you should shut your mouth and other sentimental songs like them. You can't call them emo, and you can't call them punk. They're just FOB.
You're not punk and I'm telling everyone!
