Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – Pray For The Wicked, Panic! At The Disco

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at a band that get bigger and bigger with every album that they release – Pray For the Wicked, Panic! At The Disco

(Fuck A) Silver Lining

This is the first song on the album Pray For The Wicked and sort of really puts into perspective the theme and the musical magic of the track that is to come. It is punchy, stands out and really is like no other song that you have heard of from Panic! At The Disco before. Whilst the title and the song may have swear words in it, the song is very uplifting and quite a positive track.


Dancing’s Not a Crime

This is a song on the album that as soon as you hear it you will want to tap along with it or actually dance. The great thing about this album is that it has a very good feel good vibe to it and this song in particular is one of those songs you can imagine listening to on a lovely summers day. A definite favourite on the album.


Roaring 20s

In true Panic style there is one song on the track that stands out as unique and very different and this is that song. It has a really cool electro swing vibe with this song that really makes it stand out and be very unique to the rest of the songs on the album. The chorus is very addictive and fun to listen to as well.



One of the Drunks

Now, this song at first may not sound like one of the strongest on the track but once you get into it the musical melodies will become your best friend. The thing that is good about this song is the chorus it is very melodic and one of those songs that you will end up enjoying a lot.

Dying in LA

Every great Panic! album always finishes with a beautiful song that is sort of like a finale and this track follows in suit. Dying in LA is a lot slower then the rest of the album which is a very fantastic choice because it sort of brings Pray For The Wicked to a beautiful close. This album is clearly influenced by Brendan’s run in the Broadway musical Kinky Boots because it has a lot of elements that a musical has. This song is really good as it highlights the actual vocal talents of Brendan Urie and also feels like a sort of ending to this chapter of music whilst also creating a sort of cliffhanger for the next album.
