Released: June 22, 2018
With the only concrete member of Panic! at the Disco being lead singer Brendon Urie, he’s able to craft the music he wants. Coming fresh off his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots, there’s a theatricality to each song.
Urie’s voice can reach incredible heights and he uses every bit of it here. There’s not a bad song in the bunch. In a time where many artists put the majority of their focus on one or two great songs, it’s incredible to hear the passion in each cut.
There’s a lot of fun to be had on the album. Among the best is the upbeat “Dancing’s Not a Crime.” There are also strong connections to Urie’s mother, referencing his success to her on “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” and quoting her on “High Hopes.”
Final say: Pray for more. ★★★★★
