Album Review

Fight! Fight! Fight! is at the center of a rather unique scenario in pop — it's a debut album deferred for a dozen years. Gerald Roesser, aka Richard Panic aka the History of Panic, first started brewing up his highly melodic synth pop sounds at the tail end of the '90s, but when he became a member of Detroit-based indie pop outfit Pas/Cal shortly thereafter, he seemingly became too occupied with that band to pursue his more electronically oriented interests as an extracurricular project. After Pas/Cal split up, however, Roesser was finally at liberty to turn his attention to his long-neglected project once more, and with Fight! Fight! Fight! he has at last made his first full-length sonic statement as the History of Panic. While the album is unlikely to send fans of Roesser's former band running away screaming, it's very much its own musical beast, focusing much more on electronics and a sort of post-Postal Service synth pop sound. It's not an exclusively synthetic soundscape — there's a bit of guitar work to be found within the arrangements — but Fight! Fight! Fight! is certainly nothing like the full-band indie rock Roesser recorded as part of Pas/Cal, even though the two projects share a certain elegantly arch sensibility. Besides being consistently hummable, Roesser's tunes are also eminently danceable, and one can imagine most of these tracks finding a home in dance clubs just as easily as college radio playlists. Especially when Leah Diehl of Lightning Love pops up for a guest vocal appearance on "The Chase," putting things into Human League "Don't You Want Me" territory. ~ J. Allen, Rovi
