Overview

Fall Out Boy's resounding success since Take This to Your Grave and From Under the Cork Tree guaranteed the reissue of their debut mini-album. Originally released in 2002 on the California imprint Uprising, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend was a Fall Out Boy primer, a hyper tantrum of humor, self-deprecation, puppy love, and Get Up Kids worship. "The World's Not Waiting (For Five Tired Boys in a Broken Down Van)" and "Short, Fast, and Loud" were album summaries in song title, harmony, and triumphant chord crash; the energetic "Honorable Mention," with its allusions to detentions and being John Cusack, wasn't far behind. "And maybe next time/I'll remember not to tell you something stupid like I'll never leave your side." The band's youth accounted for some precocious lyrical turns, considerable debts to influence, and the out-of-control moments like "Moving Pictures." But Uprising's 2005 reissue proves that Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend is as vital for Fall Out Boy fans as any of the band's subsequent releases. And besides, who can resist a Parker Lewis reset?

This album is really gritty and great for the die hard fall out boy fans. It doesn't have the famous Fall Out Boy sound, but Fall Out Boy changed slightly with each new album and this one fits right in. It is still recognizable as Fall Out Boy and I personally recommend getting it.

I downloaded a couple of demos from this band and it was amazing, I loved it. So I ordered their cd and when it arrived I looked on the back and NONE of the songs I had been listening to were on there. So I put the cd in and to my horror, it sucked. sucked very badly. do not buy this

clearly this man has no testicles, he doesnt know that Fall Out Boy has so much potential, also, if he has half of a brain he would have looked at the track listin prior to buying the cd and noticed it, clearly this man lost his balls in some sort of tragic accident.

I thought it was interesting that Pete actually was lead singer for this album. The songs were great as always, but it was imperfect when it came to the sound coming together smoothly. It is especially evident at the end of Pretty in Punk. This is understandable because it was their debut and therefore not without flaws.

When Pete Wentez is singing,Fall Out Boy sounds like a different band.But in a good way.This way they sound more punkish.They have a great sound on all their CD's.From Under The Cork Tree & Ifinity On High are better in my opinion,but ,hey, that's just me.I've heard that Fall Out Boy doesn't like this CD ,but they keep making more CD's.
