Editorial Reviews

Panic! At The Disco, the platinum-selling and Grammy-nominated group from Las Vegas, NV, is back and in better shape than ever with their hugely anticipated third studio album, Vices & Virtues. Two members lighter, the group is looking to stave off rumors of their disbanding by showing the world they are very much in the picture, and ready to take the world on once again. Based on the energy and response from their sold-out album preview show in New York, it seems Panic! is going to do just that.

Vices & Virtues pushes the classic Panic! sound to new heights, capturing the glory of A Fever You Can't Sweat Out all the while securing their spot with a new generation of fans.

Customer Reviews

It's one of those albums that you love the first time you hear.
Jersey Vol
While Pretty Odd was like the Fever album's alter ego, Vices and Virtues is more like it's older brother.

I love the artist and the song, and there was no damage to the cover/booklet/CD.

Panic! At the Disco's debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, was edgy, dark, emotional and filled with raw energy. Their sophmore release, Pretty Odd, was basicly the exact oppisite, with it's nostlgic, mellow and happy vibe. While Pretty Odd was like the Fever album's alter ego, Vices and Virtues is more like it's older brother. It is not a repeat of the Fever album by any means but it has the same kind of magic that Fever drew you in with and is a very strong, well put together album. Overall, Vices and Virtues is pretty energetic and upbeat, it makes you want to sing and dance along with songs like Hurricane and Sarah Smiles but also has a couple really strong slower songs like Always and the Calender. Give it a listen, even if you are sceptical after Pretty Odd, you will be pleasently suprised at what the two remaining members of Panic have done here.

I was disappointed when P!ATD left behind their signature, over-the-top theatrics. I do think it's important to respect musicians' need to grow and experiment, though. I think part of the reason this album is as good as it is, is because of Pretty.Odd. In Vices & Virtues, Panic! returns to that original sound that fans love, but brings with it a greater maturity and improved songwriting. Fast tempos and heavy strings make for a seriously fun listen. 'Hurricane' has the most addictive hand-clap percussion and shout-along chorus--I can't quit listening to it, so awesome.

It's true that Vices & Virtues doesn't have the same bite of their old lyrics, and I do miss that. But honestly, it can't be healthy to be that angry and bitter all the time, so if Brendon wants to croon melancholy love songs, I'm good with that. 'Always,' a ballad of acoustic guitar, is particularly beautiful. Brendon's singing has improved so much since their debut. He's completely left behind the emo yell/sing, and this is him at a vocal peak. What a voice!

I think Vices & Virtues takes their old style and marries it with the maturity of Pretty.Odd. I bumped a star off for some songs like 'Memories', which are nice but kind of forgettable. That said, if you were a fan of their first style, give Vices & Virtues a shot; I'm so happy they're back.

In comparison to their last cd, this one is so much better. I enjoy all of the songs, and I am glad Panic is back into making the type of music they did on their first CD. Their previous one, for me didn't sound well and I believe they lost some fans because of it. I suspect the two members that left were the cause of the change. I want to hear Panic, not a band trying to sound like The Beatles. If you aren't sure if you should buy this because of their last CD, I can say it will not be a waste of money.

"Vices & Virtues" is a great Panic! at the Disco album. "The Ballad of Mona Lisa" seems to be a fairly straightforward pop tune, and as the album's opener it is deceptive: "Vices & Virtues" quickly gives way to interesting and eccentric dance beats. "Let's Kill Tonight" has enough sarcasm to fit the tone of "Vices and Virtures", but then "Hurricane" rushes in, with Panic! at the Disco's trademark whimsically poetic lyrics ("I want you/to catch me like a cold", "I was a wolf/among the sheep/now I've got the wool over my eyes"). All the way out to the end I enjoy every song.

There's a rather beautiful break in the middle with the ballad "Always", and while I tend to loop this album and replay it, I also often stop at the end and re-spin "Nearly Witches (Ever Since We Met)" for its amazing rhythm and variety--it has soaring vocals, a bit of ELO-styled harmonies, clashing chaotic percussion, and a loud chorus with mellow crooning, all of it bookended by a children's choir singing in French at the beginning and doing a reprise of "The Ballad of Mona Lisa" at the end. "Ready to Go (Get Me Out of My Mind)" has an '80s pop feel that Coldplay wished they could have achieved on Mylo Xyloto, and "Sarah Smiles" would have been right at home on Panic! at the Disco's album "Pretty. Odd" (which is also a great album); "The Calendar" is downright beautiful.

That said, I think the most musically rich track has to be "Trade Mistakes": it does an amazing job of ramping up and down, mixing beautiful strings, soaring harmonies, and fast-driven, percussion-heavy choruses.

If you like Panic! at the Disco, you won't be disappointed with their third album. If you're new to their sound, definitely go backwards and give "Pretty. Odd" and "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" a listen. Panic! at the Disco are a clever, creative band and I look forward to seeing what else they have to offer the music world.

Format: Audio CD
Reduced to a duo, Panic! At The Disco (now with reclaimed exclamation marks!) limp back to their emo-roots on "Vices and Virtues." Drummer Spencer Smith and guitar/vocalist Brendon Urie keep the name alive as bassist Jon Walker and guitarist Ryan Ross split. It's hard to tell who split for what reason, but "Vices and Virtues" is a clear step back from the goofy psychedelia of "Pretty Odd." Urie and Smith didn't completely drop their pastiche of everything 60's (as filtered perhaps, through XTC), but this album is in no way an obvious follow-up to "Pretty Odd's" naked ambition.

In fact, I was one of the reviewers who thought PO was a five star effort, reinvigorating the pomp and entertainment of bands like Jellyfish. Opener "Ballad of Mona Lisa" certainly attempts a recall of that giddy power-pop, then the album lurches firmly back into the mold of "Fever You Can't Sweat Out." This return to emo is not a vice, as PATD is really good at it, but it's not always a virtue. Urie and Smith keep up an energetic pace, and they love the production style that includes the phrase "and the kitchen sink." However, these two were not PATD's original principle songwriters, and some of the songs lack that killer hook.

That isn't a problem on the finale, "Nearly Witches." This song sounds like a leftover from the PO sessions, contains two kitchen sinks and has the killer hook. As "Vice's" oddball out song, it's a standout along with "Mona Lisa." "Let's Kill Tonight," "Ready To Go" and the ballad "Always" are the other keepers on the CD, and indicate that if Urie and Smith can work on their writing chops, this edition of Panic! At The Disco may be one that lasts.
