Panic! At The Disco - Vices And Virtues

I hadn't planned on liking this record this much at all. Instead, I can already sing pretty much every lyric to every song four listens in. That's how catchy this album is. If Pretty. Odd was pretty terrible to you, as it was to me, and you were awaiting a return to the band's A Fever You Can't Sweat Out sound, you will be rather pleased. Panic's customary cinematic instrumentation comes out in full force throughout the album. Dancy rhythms dominate the middle of the album as "Let's Kill Tonight", "Hurricane", "Memories", "Trade Mistakes", and "Ready To Go" all will keep any listener on his or her feet while "The Calendar" and "Sarah Smiles" take the best traits out of Pretty. Odd and combine it with the sound of A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. The only poor song on the album is the ballad "Always", while strong vocally is overall boring. For a while I was debating on even downloading the album. After a couple of listens, I'm embarrassed I even had those thoughts. This record is excellent, and can be bought here. The album can also be streamed on Facebook here.
