Check out our podcast episode breaking down our most anticipated music of 2021!
It’s been almost three years since Panic! At the Disco released the absolutely stellar Pray For The Wicked, but Brendon Urie isn’t one to sit idle for too long. Coming off the high of what is arguably Panic’s best record, it’s hard to imagine that anything can top Pray For The Wicked.
Fortunately though, Brendon Urie is full of surprises. Having brought Panic! back from the brink of collapse, expanded the band’s sound in unimaginable ways and lifted the group to become one of the world’s biggest acts over the last decade, he isn’t one to take lightly. With each album carrying a distinct and unique persona and sound, it’s hard not to be excited for whatever comes next.
Panic! At the Disco is a band that universally delivers in a way that almost no other musical act can. Whatever Urie has planned for the band’s seventh album, it’s destined to once again push the band’s boundaries and force other pop acts to up their game just to keep up.

Pray for the wicked is the second worst album from them, after Pretty. Odd.
pretty odd was a masterpiece, perfectly whimsical and light with the right amount of p!atd touch, pray for the wicked is the single worst album, pretty odd slander is not tolerated
Pretty. Odd. was simply wonderful. I don’t even know if they even had one bad song. Their debut album is the best of course, but Pretty. Odd. is tied for second with Death of a Bachelor.
I agree with Micki. Pretty. Odd. is right up there with the best of them. While there have been some good things after Ryan left (Vices and Virtues stands well with the first two albums), Pray for the Wicked killed a lot of interest I had in the band. I’ll still check out anything new just for Brendon’s voice, but Brendon on his own isn’t nearly as compelling as the band was, especially not party boy Brendon. (Did you ever think we’d get a Panic! song about being one of the drunks?
Just reading all the comments I can say with confidence all of you are wrong, every single album was, is, and will always be good. But the best album was Too weird to Live to rare to die released in 2013 which was one of the best years for music, I can say this knowing I’ve listened to every single song P!atd has released. But I think that band went as far as it did because there was only Urie left to make the desicions and f you have a bunch of people arguing about what to do, there wouldn’t have been any new albums at all. But none of them are bad, they are all amazing.
1.Too weird to Live to rare to die.
2. Death of a bachelor.
3. Vices and Virtues.
The rest are all tied, but all have their good and bad points, Pray for the wicked is the most overplayed album, pretty odd is the most soft album because the songs sound more like folk music (which is what they planed) rather than panic’s actual genre, and a Fever you can’t sweat out is just a classic because it was their debut.
Totally agree, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die is the best, but Death of a Bachelor is a close second, and V&V a close third. Honestly my least favorite is Pretty Odd, but I still like most of the album. Pray for the Wicked is overplayed but has plenty of juice, and the debut album is always great to listen to.
