I believe I was less than kind to Oberon when he suggested that Fall Out Boy's Under The Cork Tree wasn't half-bad, but, um, he was right. The song writing is honest and sincere, the band has some snap that bands like Hey Mercedes lack, and there's even a bit of serious cred (the band's drummer was in Racetraitor).
I came across Fastball's All The Pain That Money Can Buy on my iTune's playlist - following a common theme, it's a better album than I remember. Clearly, this is a sign of getting old.
