Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Panic At the Disco subverted the potential for a sophomore slump by taking a sharp left turn from the emo-fused pop-punk of their debut, A FEVER YOU CAN'T SWEAT OUT. Rather than retracing the footsteps that brought them popularity, Panic At the Disco made PRETTY. ODD., a headlong dive into pure 1960s pop psychedelia. From the floral print cover-art (framed by a vintage photo album-style border) to the artfully constructed retro symphonic pop inside, PRETTY. ODD. will surprise fans and stump naysayers.
  • Both the self-referential opener, "We're So Starving," and the lead single, "Nine in the Afternoon," with its soaring chorus and echoing horn lines, channel SGT. PEPPERS-era Beatles. The drowsy, lovely "Northern Downpour" and the music hall send-up (complete with added vinyl crackle), "I Have Friends in Holy Spaces," suggest the band has also been listening to the Beatles' WHITE ALBUM. But although PRETTY. ODD. is indebted to the Fab Four, it also has a contemporary feel, and no shortage of guitar-charged rock. Most surprising is that this unlikely experiment succeeds on the merit of its ambition, wit, and fine melodic songwriting.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The tunes are often beautiful, especially 'Northern Downpour' and 'She's a Handsome Woman,' while 'Mad as Rabbits' has a horn section beamed in from the Beatles' 'Savory Truffle.'"

Spin (p.92) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] big-budget Beatles love letter right down to its Abbey Road orchestra....Ross and crew have stepped up their songwriting skills..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.64) - "[A] dense, largely enjoyable layer cakes of ideas and instrumentation..." -- Grade: B+

Uncut (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir second finds them channeling SGT. PEPPER...down a nightmarish rabbit hole of hyper-reality, '60s pop, '20s swing, banjos and horns."

Alternative Press (p.147) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Drummer Spencer Smith keeps things solid for Ross and producer Rob Mathes' sonic flights of fancy..."

CMJ - "[They replace] their previously slick emo with simple melodies, a full orchestra, over-looping vocals and psychedelic, circus-like accoutrements."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.46) - "It's a record that sounds wonderful, bold and excitiy....Panic's ear for cheery melody is unabashed and perhaps stronger than ever."

Q (Magazine) (p.134) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Lead single 'Nine In The Afternoon' is a beautifully proportioned pop song....Similarly, 'Do You Know What I'm Seeing?''s meandering melody betrays a sharp intelligence."

Blender (Magazine) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Here, they've relaxed, shed their grandiosity and learned how to goof around."

Paste (magazine) (p.72) - "[T]he new record reaffirms the basic premise that quality rock songs transcend fashion....PRETTY.ODD. will likely sustain much of the band's existing fanbase."
