I have been a longtime Panic at The Disco fan, but I failed to download (again illegally) their latest album after it was release in 2007. I have been listening the to the new album, Pretty. Odd., for the past 3 months and by listening to the album, you can really differentiate from the first album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out.
Pretty. Odd. is the second studio album by the band Panic at the Disco, released on the record label Fueled by Ramen. The first single from the album is “Nine in the Afternoon”. The second single released as a digital single was “Mad as Rabbits” (released as a digital single on iTunes), although this was not really a radio single, a video was made (clips of the filming of “That Green Gentleman” were used). The third single is “That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)”. The fourth single is “Northern Downpour.”
This album, was a departure from the sound created by the album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. The “dark-sinful” tone the first album set was replaced with a “good-day-circus” feel of this new album. When you’re listening to the tracks, you feel like you are at a park, balloons and ice creams on hand unlike the “dark” theme the first album set.
Another notable thing about this new album are the song titles. The song titles on this album are now contained in the lyrics, unlike the first album where majority of the song titles where influenced by books and movies. I don’t want to make a biased verdict but this album is really worth every penny you spend, well in my case, worth every minute I spent waiting for the download to finish.
