Panic! At The Disco started their career by releasing their first album, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” in September of 2005, which has become double platinum. In their third album, “Vices & Virtues,” which was released in 2011 and reached number seven on Billboard 200 its first week. Panic! was left with only Brendon Urie and drummer Spencer Smith. They went on hiatus until 2013 when they released their fourth album, “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die,” which still had Brendon and Spencer, as well as bassist Dallon Weekes. He only features on this fourth album. They had started off with Brendon, Spencer, and Ryan Ross, but after 10 years, it’s just Brendon, who has always been lead-vocalist, but is now also a multi-instrumentalist, along with being a full writer and composer.

This album was released Friday, Jan. 15, 2016. It has really reminded me of “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” as they are quite similar, but still different, which I really like, with a couple songs reminding me of their second album, “Pretty. Odd.”

My top four favorite songs from this album:

  1. “House of Memories”
  2. “LA Devotee”
  3. “The Good, The Bad and The Dirty”
  4. “Impossible Year”

I’ve been a fan of Panic! since I was around 7 years, due to my sister always blasting their music from her room. When I had heard that Urie was making this album by himself, I was quite surprised. I would have never thought he would’ve been able to do all of that by himself, but he has proved me wrong. I recommend this album to everyone, you don’t have to like a certain type of music to enjoy this album. I give this album 5 out of 5 Eagles.
