For Pete's sake! I had a plan to write up a review on Black Cards' latest EP release, Use Your Disillusion. I was eager to do so, actually. I couldn't wait to listen to the new material from ex-Fall Out Boy bassist, Pete Wentz, so I went to download the EP off iTunes straight after I saw his tweet about its release.
However, the moment I heard the opening track of the EP, I knew straight away that it was impossible for me to do so without sounding like a butthurt FOB fangirl. Why, you ask? Well, when its opening track, Wolf Slayer, started playing, I thought for a second there that I had downloaded the wrong album. It was nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, like what I had expected it to be. Let me explain:
First, would be the fact that there is only one track on the album that actually has vocals. Second, would be that the genre of the album was dance. In summary, it is exactly what Fall Out Boy was not.
Maybe it was wrong for me to have expected it to sound like what we have heard from Fall Out Boy. But regardless of my initial shock, I must say that the EP is pretty decent for a dance album. So if you're one who enjoys club/house/dubstep music, this EP would definitely be your cup of tea.
For those who wants to check out the EP for themselves, Use Your Disillusion is now available on iTunes. Check out the EP promo below:
