Make America Psycho Again
Label: Island Records
This full-album remix of Fall Out Boy's imperial American Beauty/American Psycho reconfigures most songs as martial R&B and adds a small galaxy of guest rappers. The generic club thump that lurked within "Uma Thurman" gets spotlighted, and Azealia Banks lets go of "The Kids Aren't Alright" too early, but a spacious version of "Centuries" and a glazed, wistful “Immortals” are easy on ears weary of the originals’ super-dense pummel. And the remixed "Irresistible," which hollows the blaring guitars to nothing and outs Patrick Stump's chanting as stiff-shouldered rap, is ingenious.
