CRITIC REVIEWS

The rest of the world has been chuckling at emo for far too long, but this album is sure to silence a lot of those laughs. It’s ambitious, exciting and energetic.

Entertainment Weekly

Panic! At The Disco combines above-average emo-boy yelping with freaky techno tweaks and new-wave synths to make A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out perfect for dancing and moping.

Sputnikmusic
Gimmicky, whiny, repetitious & pretentious, this album is easy to dislike. Yet it succeeds as catchy pop music with something just a little bit different and very little filler.

Rolling Stone
What makes Panic different (and excellent) is their use of dance-floor synths and roboto drums, which redeems the album's whininess.

Drowned in Sound

Without delving too deeply into vocalist Brendon Urie’s wholly muddled lyrics ... Panic! At The Disco’s strengths lie in their frantic compositions, unrelenting in their relative invention, however successful the results.

The Skinny
There's something endearingly infectious about this album, like that friend of a friend you're a bit ambivalent about, but the more they hang around, the more you like them.

AllMusic
This is a band in love with making a record -- making a statement -- but there's nothing unique inside, neither in their formula nor the vaunted and sticky production.

PopMatters
What we have here is a record that is desperately reaching for an emo zenith by cramming so many typical emo quirks and tricks into itself that it is bursting with emo-ness. It's an embodiment of a genre instead of an artistic achievement.

Pitchfork
Emo barrel-scrapers make Rites of Spring seem two decades old. Oh, wait.

I had high hopes... cause I actually like "I Write Sins Not Tragedies..." This Album's songs range from pretty good... to actually having the ability to make my stomach turn inside out. I feel gross...

Tried relistening to this to see how much my feelings on it have changed.
I couldn't get passed the first 3 songs.
How the hell did this use to be a masterpiece to me?

Use of this album as a means of torture should be made an international war crime.
