11 years of Panic! at The Disco deep cuts
Panic! At The Disco have been around for over a decade and have a healthy four albums on the go. The band has seen MAJOR lineup changes in that time as well as sound changes but we remain Panic! till we die. Since we love them so much, we're exploring the Panic! deep cuts and counting down our favourite 5 non-singles from the last 10 years.
Pretty. Odd. is probably Panic! at The Disco's most underrated album (although it's probably their best one). There is something really jaunty and charming about "Behind The Sea" both in its lyrical and technical composition. I would definitely say this is one of Panic's best tracks. Like ever.
This, I think is one of the strongest songs on Panic's debut record. It certainly is one of the more confident and interestingly composed tracks on A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. There are even industrial elements strewn in for the mid 2000s breakdown fanatics out there.
I love this song because it is one of Panic's few implicitly romantic songs. Taken from their third record, Vices & Virtues, the boys really explored the workings of straight "pop" songs on this release. A lot of this record might be sort of fleeting, but there is something perfect and sweet about "Always".
Sorry if this is geeky (please don't @ me) but, in 2011, Panic! contributed a song to the Batman: Arkham City soundtrack. Now, remember, this was 2011. Long past A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, but somehow they managed to recapture the feeling of the first record SEVEN years after it came out. Kind of great.
The Too Weird To Live To Rare To Die days were a weird time for everybody. This song combines the best of contemporary electronic elements with a quasi 80s situation. High BPM count and a steady drum beat make this one of the most enjoyable tracks from that record.
