EDITORS’ NOTES

Stylistically this is all miles from their 2005 debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. This time around they toss in a bit of everything, including strings, horn fills, swirling harmonies, even a mock-vaudevillian interlude in “I Have Friends in Holy Places.” To say that Pretty. Odd. is often over the top is as obvious as some of the corny wordplay.

First Impression: New Direction

At the first listen through, Pretty. Odd. is a radical departure from A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. I would almost venture to say it sounds closer to indie rock, or maybe The Beatles than to their first album. That being said, I cannot complain. The band said they realized they were changing a bit and hoped that their fans would be able to grow with them; wise words. The sound is definitely more (in the band's words) organic than their electro-infused first album. Overall, it's a very mellow record that doesn't immediately hook you, but could definitely grow with a few listens. This seems like more of a songwriter's album than their first cd. The band also spread the vocal duties around, as opposed to Brandon Urie doing all the main vocals. All-in-all, comparing this cd to their first is apples and oranges. It's not better or worse, just different.

Masterpiece

3 years, one thrown out album, and hundreds of gallons of coffee later comes, Pretty. Odd. The perfect album to follow A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. Pretty Odd has a very distinct sound only Panic could creat. Yet it keeps you wanting more. True Fans will be inspired by songs such as, Mad As Rabbits and Northern Downpour. The album is pure genious and I give 2 thumbs up, 5 stars, and a round of applause to the band!
