I've been listening to a lot of pop punk lately, some new artists and some artists that I used to listen to, but stopped after the scene died down. One of the artist that I began listening to is Panic! At the Disco. I only knew that I enjoyed their first few albums and figured I would've enjoyed most of their post-split album seeing how much I listened to Vices & Virtues. Anyways, I saw that they had two albums I haven't heard of yet so I put both of them on my backlog. What made me listen to Death of a Bachelor first was when my friend said that their latest album was really good. I binged listened to Death of a Bachelor a few times and found that I really did enjoy it.
If you are already familiar with what Panic! At the Disco sounds like, this album shouldn't really come as surprise to you. From a sound prospective, Panic! At the Disco sounds just as pop punk as they did in the early 00s, although there is a bit of modern electronic influence here and there. From start to finish, the tracks are just as infectious with choruses that get stuck in your head for days. Some of my favorite tracks off of this album are "Victorious", "Death of a Bachelor", "The Good, the Bad and the Dirty" and "House of Memories". Not all is good with this album though, there are a few hiccups on the album, but nothing that really makes the album forgettable as a whole.
This album probably won't make new fans of the band, but it is just as good as some of the early Panic! At the Disco albums. Looking forward to listening to the albums that I've missed from this band.
