Going Back: Panic! At The Disco

When I was too young to discover my own taste in music, great artists unbeknownst to my parents and I were arising and putting out amazing records. I try as much as possible to keep moving forward, for music is always evolving, but it’s always important to look behind as well. For example, my personal favorite record of Panic! At The Disco was released seven years ago, in 2005.

Titled A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, this debut album contains some of the best Panic! Songs ever released, as well as some of the longest titles in modern music [see “Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off” and “There’s A Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey, You Just Haven’t Thought Of It Yet”]. Although I’ve no sources that state this album is a concept album, I do believe that it tells a pretty interesting story if you put all of the tracks together in a certain way.

Panic! Brought a sound completely original at the time; it was fast-paced, fun, and full of metaphors. However acclaimed by fans, the record actually did not fare well against critics, although Pete Wentz (who signed the group) was very impressed by them. Now it is their highest selling record, and unlike many bands, this debut album held the song that got them radio popularity.

Now half the size of their original number, Panic! At The Disco has not shown any sign of slowing down or selling out, although many fans are already prepared for yet another album. And yes, I am part of this fan base.
