Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album has a Bayesian average rating of 60.7/100, a mean average of 59.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 59.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.3.

Judging from the other reviews, naming the album "Save Rock and Roll" was a mistake, especially since it isn't meant to be taken so seriously which considering how tongue and cheek the band has always been, I would have thought that would have been obvious, but I guess not.

So why do I give it an 85? Well, when listening originally I was a little disappointed that Fall Out Boy had left their more experimental approach of their previous album Folie a Deux and I also more importantly feel that the lyrics are not as strong as they once were. Still I do find the production to be solid and the songs to be extremely enjoyable. Beyond that I continue to find that Patrick Stump is absolutely one of the most talented vocalists of today and on this album he continues to shine. Picking a favorite song is tough, but the closer that shares the same name as the album, "Save Rock and Roll" is absolutely beautiful.

I know some people who overplayed this album to death, making it very hard for me to like. The title is also quite annoying, because this is as far away from Rock and Roll as possible.

I'm angry with this album. It promises to "Save Rock and Roll" but it is a by-numbers pop album. The Phoenix is quite good, My Songs is alright. That's it. For the record, Rat-a-Tat is one of (if not the) worst song I've ever heard. What happened to you FOB?

What's keeping me from wanting to listen to this album further? Amidst the distillation of the last 2 decades of alternative rock, this album is just way too overproduced and over-the-top, rife with cheesy or just strangely dumb lyrics. It's almost to the point where my interest is piqued AND i smirk in disgust by the lyrics at the same time, but more smirking than enjoyment. For this, they remind me a lot of imagine dragons, which is just something i would not reach for when i wanted to hear some album, just like this new fall out boy monstrosity. From my point of view, they're addressing their own music when they sing, "you need to lower your standards, cause it's never getting any better than this".

Young Volcanoes is getting so much better with every listen. A very sweet song if you don't mind the implied violence.

It’s an awfully bold statement, “Save Rock And Roll", especially coming from Fall Out Boy. If I had to pick a band to “save rock and roll", it most likely would not be Fall Out Boy, a band that has been the absolute definition of mediocrity, a band that hasn’t been able to stop writing the same song over and over again for years.

So, naturally, I approached this album with some slight bias. Then I heard the opening track, “The Phoenix" and I was like “Holy crap, this is good, and it’s different for Fall Out Boy." Then I heard the next track, and lead single, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up)" and I thought “Wow, this is really good too, has Fall Out Boy changed into a band that can create a really good album like this is shaping up to be?" And then the rest of the album happened, and it was slightly different, but still same old Fall Out Boy. The rest of it is fairly uninteresting. “The Mighty Fall" which features Big Sean is pretty decent, but the rest of it is very forgettable, which is a shame, because it was shaping up to really be a good album, which would’ve been a really pleasant surprise.

"It's Courtney, b*tch."

Ugh. Excluding that, this is an incredibly average record. The first half is really good, however it takes a 'mighty fall' in the second half.

This album is really average. The Phoenix and Light 'Em Up are the only two good songs, and the rest really are just... average.
