Note: I also reviewed this for On Record, if you want to read something just a little bit more professional sounding.
Panic! At The Disco are a bit of a walking paradox: consistently inconsistent. Since the band started up the line up has changed with every album. One of their lyrics, which has become a bit of a meme amongst the fandom, goes, “You don’t have to worry, ’cause we’re still the same band.” Except, in this iteration of Panic! At The Disco, Brendon Urie appears to be the only member. On the album’s Wikipedia page he is credited with the following:
- Lead Vocals
- Backing Vocals
- Lead Guitar
- Rhythm Guitar
- Bass Guitar
Even if you don’t like the band you can’t deny that Brendon is insanely talented.
‘Death Of A Bachelor’ is the band’s fifth studio album and it has brought with it another twist to their genre. Well, they never really fit into any genre anyway. But this album is heavily influenced by Frank Sinatra, which Brendon has admitted to himself.
So far Panic! have already released music videos for…
Emperor’s New Clothes
Death Of A Bachelor
But my two favourite tracks on the album are ‘House of Memories’ and ‘Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time.’ In a Twitter Q&A/listening party, Brendon said that DTMWAGT was the song he was most looking forward to playing live, so I’m pretty optimistic it might get its own music video.
