Album Review

Reduced to a duo of Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith, neither of whom were primary songwriters during the band’s early years, Panic at the Disco pick up the thread they started with their skewed Beatlesque sophomore set, Pretty. Odd., and turn Vices & Virtues into a curious little nesting doll of an album. Elements of the band’s energetic emo are here, but it’s only one bit on a record that follows the kitchen sink aesthetic of Pretty. Odd., one where the production is too restless to sit still for more than a couple of bars. The keystone here isn’t so much the ‘60s as it is ‘80s new wave with synths and echoed guitars uncannily recalling the glory days of 1983, but Panic at the Disco’s approach is distinctly modern, letting the past intermingle with the present so it all creates a Day-Glo digital collage. Often, the individual pieces of this patchwork pop are more captivating than the overall image, yet there’s still an undeniable appeal to Urie and Smith’s crazed earnest energy; they may not know where they’re going but they know all the different routes to get there.

Customer Reviews

An improvement

After their energising first album I was disappointed in Panic!'s change of pace for their second album. Having listened to Vices & Virtues a couple of times I've got to say I really like it. To me its a mixture of the energy of 'A fever you cant sweat out' and the slower and different sound of 'Pretty odd' and it works well.
Favourite songs are 'The ballad of Mona Lisa', 'Hurricane', 'Memories' and 'Sarah smiles'.
Definitely worth the purchase. A solid 4 stars.

Reinvention Again

Having liked both two records released by Panic previously, I was eagerly awaiting their third album.
You can feel a loss of Ryan, in that the lyrics are not quite as strong or whimsical as they have been. However, Brendon and Spencer bring something that is not worse, but just different.
I think if they'd gone back to the style of Fever it would've been like a step back. I like that this band is constantly reinventing, and I'm already kind of wondering what will be next.
Favorites: Nearly Witches, Let's Kill Tonight, Sarah Smiles, Ready to Go
Least Favorite: Trade Mistakes
(Though after a few listens I'll love them all.)

Panic! is back!!

I have been waiting ages for Vices & Virtues to come out and it's finally here!! It is well worth buying it on iTunes for a cheap $20. It is so hard to pick my favourite songs but I'm going to have to say Nearly Witches, Let's Kill Tonight, Hurricane, The Ballad of Mona Lisa, Trade Mistakes and Oh Glory are the best!! I'm really liking the new direction Panic! at the Disco have taken :)

The members of Panic! At the Disco had barely graduated high school when their full-length debut, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, transformed the suburban Las Vegas teens into national emo-pop stars. The band had materialized several years earlier, when friends Spencer Smith (drums) and Ryan Ross (guitar) began covering blink-182 tunes together. After tiring of playing another group's material, they recruited two additional classmates, guitar/vocalist Brendon Urie and bassist Brent Wilson, and the newly...
