Sans his old newsboy caps, striped scarves, and mutton-chops, the sleek and chic Stump 2.0 has moved on to a soulful new styleof rock, exploiting his intense, acrobatic vocals to their full potential. And 'o and behold, his new album is called Soul Punk, so you know exactly what you're getting into.
With his new sound, Patrick is breaking away from brand of pop-punk Fall Out Boy made famous. In particular, Stump's single "This City" has a much broader appeal and demonstrates the musician's talent and range. The remix of the song--which has Lupe Fiasco throwing down some guest rhymes--is one of the album's more surprising departures, having, dare I say, pop and dance elements. So Stump may find an unprecedented reponse to his solo work.
