"Let me get this straight, you really think that Pretty. Odd. is one of the best albums of all time?"

I do, and I'm tired of pretending it isn't
As this is currently my highest rating, I thought I'd redo my old and woeful review.

Panic! At The Disco's sophomore album is an absolute masterpiece. The band had seen an enormous amount of success with their pop punk debut, but slowly thereafter they got tired of their ironic, theatrical and guitar-driven self. They therefore went on a hiatus and came back with their debut's antithesis, Pretty Odd. On what later turned out to be their last effort together, Panic! At The Disco constructs a ... read more
This is an album that changed my perception of the world. As a 13 year old, this album served as my rabbit hole down into the music of the 60s and 70s that this album borrows heavily from. I consider it a gateway drug, in a weird way. Pretty Odd is the diamond standard for Fueled by Ramen's often saccharine pop-rock brand. It's Panic!'s best record, and will probably stay that way. If I'm ever feeling truly nostalgic, this is a pop record I will always return to.
Panic! at the Disco’s sophomore release opens up the sounds of their debut to an insane degree, and builds upon the weak and mediocre sound palettes presented before. This album is like opening a pop-up story book, as everything flies out at you with insane speeds and energy. It’s truly inspiring just how much they’ve grown in the span of one album cycle.

Color: Orange
FAV TRACKS: all except least fav!
LEAST FAV: Pas de Cheval, Mad as Rabbits
Actually ended up enjoying this quite a bit. This album's psych pop throwback sound works really well with panic's unique personality. Nothing all that original or groundbreaking, just a collection of fairly good songs.

Best tracks: We're so starving/Nine in the afternoon, Green Gentleman(!), Northern Downpour(love the vocals here), She had the world,
Worst tracks: Know what i'm seeing?(!), Day met the night

Rating: 76/100(pretty. good.)
