This Las Vegas band strives to create a unique sound by blending melody-driven rock with dance. This is a rock record you can dance to; that's fun and sincere at the same time. Produced by Matt Squire (Northstar, The Explosion, The Receiving End Of Sirens). Panic! At The Disco is the first band signed to Pete Wentz's (Fall Out Boy) Decaydance Records, a Fueled By Ramen imprint label. "...Imagine The Faint meets The Postal Service with all of the pop sensibilities of a Blink 182" - Peter Wentz. Touring with Fall Out Boy, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack, and Boys Night Out this fall.
Barely out of high school when signed as the first act for Powered By Ramen's new Decaydance imprint, guitarist Ryan Ross and drummer Spencer Smith of Panic! at the Disco had previously cut their musical teeth in a local Las Vegas Blink 182 cover band. It's that familiar, contempo-punk-pop sensibility, bolstered by the amped-up emo-core ambitions of singer Brendan Urie (typified by the snarky gem "The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage") that dominates the opening tracks of the album. It's a shrewd hook, one the band steadily expands -- sonically and lyrically -- thereafter. The nervous energy of "London Beckoned Songs About Money Written By Machines" is set off by sonic embroidery that's sounds as intriguing as the vocoder shtick of "Nails For Breakfast..." does dated. Yet "Camisado" quickly shakes up Supertramp's prog-pomp with a double-shot of modern punk-pop smarts, an alchemy the band and producer Mint Squire performs with similarly inventive, genre-blurring ambition (complete with a quasi-Grand Guignol "Intermission" nearly worthy of Queen) on "Lying is the Most Fun..." and such standouts as "But Its Better If You Do" and the arch delight "Build God, Then We'll Talk." Too many young bands are content slaves to fashion; this one has forged a promising debut by shrewdly taking fashion hostage, then standing it firmly on its head. -- Jerry McCulley

It will literally always be spectacular & (in my opinion) it's one of those few alternative classics that you can't forget -- and (in my case) still remember the words to the songs.
They never get old and hold such sentimental value!
Worth $10, even now. This was intact & packaged well.
Every song in this album is guaranteed to get you tapping your toes along to the beat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
The Only Difference... 5/5: One of the best songs here, and a great introduction to the album and the band as a whole
London Beckoned Songs... 3/5: Pretty good song, but the pre-chorus is a bit too focused on and dragged on
Nails for Breakfast... 2/5: This song is definitely the worst on the album. With the overuse-age of autotune, and it trying too hard to blend techno and pop-punk
Camisado 4/5: A great song, this is where the album starts to pick back up
Time to Dance 5/5: Amazing song, a bit repetitive, but that's just nit-picking
Lying is the Most Fun... 4/5: A silly song, but doesn't bring anything new musically and isn't lyrically deep
But it's Better if You Do 4/5: Another sightly fun song, but also nicely blends acoustic, horns, and pop-punk. Also, as a plus, it gives a nice ease into the next song
I Write Sins, Not Tragedies 5/5: A true masterpiece! Catchy, musically unique, and humorous without coming off as silly
I Constantly Thank God for Esteban 5/5: Amazing, takes what was musically started on But it's Better if You Do and improves it
There's a Good Reason... 4/5: Good song, but tries too hard to incorporate what was the horns and acoustic. Lyrically though, the song is very deep
Build God, Then We'll Talk 5/5: Amazing song, takes the catchyness of I Write Sins, the structure of But it's Better, and adds strings. Truly a worthy song, and a great send off
Personally, this album wouldn't be very good if the tracks didn't go together so seamlessly after Nails for Breakfast. I don't know why, but it just works, and is definitely one of the best debuts i've heard.
But, the album is nore than just quirks, and cheekiness. It's an album that shows not all young groups are crooners (although Brendon's voice could definately go there). It showed the pop/rock world that there was more out there than sugary, over-produced junk that was out at the time.
On their freshman debut, PatD jumps out the box screaming and shouting. From the opening, the band shows us that they may be cuties (a bias I wanted to eject), they show that they have writing talent. The writing is funny, sarcastic, bold, cheeky, satirical, and plain fun. You get a sense of the poeticness of Ryan Ross' mind, and a sense of what adolescence was for him.
The album falls short no where, and only soars past what I expected. I am definately a fan.
P.s.---I'm off to write a review of the new album, so look for it!!!
