Patrick Stump, 'Soul Punk' (Island)

6
Soul Punk
Critical Mass
Release Date: October 18, 2011
Label: Island

by David Menconi

Fall Out Boy singer-guitarist Patrick Stump isn't punking soul on his solo debut, but he is apparently inspired by a desire to be Prince (who isn't?), and he holds little back in exorcising his inner royal badness. Soul Punk is a more-than-competent side trip, with Stump writing, playing, and singing everything himself on nine homages to the funkier side of the '80s. It's fun, especially the Michael Jackson cops on "Dance Miserable." But with the Time's catalog readily available, this doesn't exactly fill a void.
