One of my favorite albums of late has been 2013’s Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! from Panic! At The Disco. P!ATD first came onto my radar with 2005’s A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. And I’ve loved them since then. But, alas, much has changed since their 2005 debut. The major change is that the leader of the band, the strikingly handsome Brendon Urie, is the only original member of the band left. And while this could be a sign the band just isn’t as good, this just isn’t the case. Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! is just sooo good. Spencer Smith, the original drummer, is still featured on this album (he has since left the band). However, this is really a Brendon album.
So what is so great about it, you ask? Despite the fact that it includes singles Miss Jackson and This Is Gospel, it also includes the pop perfection of the song Vegas Lights. It’s probably my favorite on the album. The bottom line is that start to finish, this is a first rate pop album. It really proves that music doesn’t need to be depressing to get the point across. Although this album is 2 years old, it hasn’t lost its freshness. At least to me it hasn’t! So don’t take life too seriously, have fun and buy this now!
