Best Panic! At the Disco Albums

The Top Ten
1 A Fever You Can't Sweat Out

This album deserves to be at number one. The songs tell stories, and they're so fun to listen to. My personal favorite is 'There's A Good Reason'. The second half of the album is so unique. AFYCSO is full of different sounds, and despite having ONE SONG with a bit of autotune, the vocals are stunning. The transition between 'But It's Better If You Do' and 'I Write Sins' is so clever. The songs on this album have a timeless retro feel, much like songs by No Doubt. I don't usually listen to 'Emo', or 'Pop Punk', but this album is AMAZING. Try listening to 'Camisado', or 'I Constantly Thank God For Esteban'. This album does have a bit of repetition, but no song can compare with one another. No matter what background you come from, you can indulge in the melodies, and appreciate the lyrics of A Fever You Can't Sweat Out.

I simply cannot get enough of this album. Ryan's song writing is simply legendary, the meaning between each and every song is pure genius. Personally, my favourite song of the record is Build God, Then We'll Talk. It is also my all-time favourite song to this day. This album was also very well performed. The live shows were astonishing, for example, this one concert in Denver was wonderful. Time To Dance live is simply spectacular!

2 Pretty. Odd.

Pretty. Odd. is personally my favorite album because of the soul poured into it from Urie and Ross. If you couldn't already tell, Urie loves this album so much because of the experiences he has while touring and with Ross. The one song that made this album was Northern Downpour. Northern Downpour is not a face paced, loud or fun song (most off of a Fever You Can't Sweat Out), but the life that is added by Urie and Ross make this song the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. This album does not deserve to be anything other than first place.

I hope that I won't be burned at the steak by Panic! Faithful for putting this at the top, but I genuinely admire the huge risk the band took with this album. They went from fairly boring punk rock to some utterly fascinating tracks reminiscent of the Beatles. Case and Point: how many times have you heard a song that apologizes to its fans for being "being gone so long" and promises them "they don't have to worry because [they're] still the same band? " Never. This album offers lots of instant hits like "Behind the Sea", "She Had the Wprld", "Nine in the Afternoon", "Mad as Rabbits", and my personal favorite "Northern Downpour".

It's unfortunate that the rest of the Panic! Community doesn't see eye to eye with me about this fantastic album.

3 Death of a Bachelor

This album is incredible, with so much range in songs. All of the songs convey a deep message, and they all somehow connect to the main theme: the death of a bachelor. It's amazing how he can go through songs full of events and tie it all together at the end with the mournful "Impossible Year." Not to mention the staple song, "Death of a Bachelor," is so beautiful, well-written, and conveyed the overwhelming emotion of the bachelor & his life.

Although a fever is a close second, this is the best album. A mix of theatrical, slow with Sinatra vibes and pop-punk, it really defines panic as an album. Every single song on there is a masterpiece. my favourite songs are hallelujah and the good, the bad and the dirty, since they are a slight throwback to their first record. Seriously, why does his get so much hate?

I liked how PATD changed their genre every album, and when I heard Victorious, I thought it would be just like the last album. When I listened to Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time, I was like " This is like, surf music or whatever. I soon realized about every song was a different genre, from swing to surf to Halloweeny music. Nice play, Urie. Nice play.

4 Vices & Virtues

I don't get why this is only at 4th. It deserves to be at least 3rd or 2nd. This album always gets me extremely hyped when I listen to it. It brings me to a whole other world, full of pleasant and unique candies to feast upon, those candies being the songs. I really enjoy this album, and my current favorites are "Sarah Smiles", "Nearly Witches", "Hurricane", "Always", and "Let's Kill Tonight". Even though "Turn Off The Lights", "I Wanna Be Free", "Stall Me", and "Oh Glory" aren't known as much as the other songs in the fantastic album, they are still equally as great as the others.

This is my favorite album of theirs next to DOAB. It's like nothing I've ever heard before-- there are so many genres smashed into one, and every song has a unique vibe and energy. God, I love this album. Brendon's voice sounds perfect in every song, you can definitely tell its matured from A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. My favorite songs are The Calendar and Hurricane-- this album is absolutely, 10/10, PERFECTION.

5 Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!

When the weakest song on the album is "Girl You Love", you know the rest of the tracks are nothing less than stellar. As far as music is concerned, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die is pop synth perfection, with the standout tracks being Far Too Young To Die, Vegas Lights, Miss Jackson, This Is Gospel, Nicotine - basically all the tracks are standout tracks. This is undoubtedly their most consistent album. The lyrics, mostly the brainchild of Dallon Weekes as well as Brendon Urie, manage to tell stories without rambling, unlike the first two albums. The entirety of the record is something you could listen to again and again. The only way this record could be more perfect is if they swapped out "Girl You Love" with "All The Boys", a demo. This is Panic! at their best.

I'm kind of conflicted with this album. Whereas there are some great, personal and meaningful songs, like This is Gospel, Girls Girls Boys, The End of All Things, Collar Full and Nicotine, there are some that I feel are lacking a lot. (Girl that You Love and Casual Affair especially. Except I can understand why the lyrics wouldn't be all that great in those two because they originally were written in French and then converted to English. French would have been so much cooler, though.)
BUT, it's still a fantastic album. It is literally impossible for Panic to make a bad album, this just wasn't their best.

6 Pray for the Wicked

Although ryan's writing is awesome, this new album brings the theatrical vibe that I love from any band. can't wait to see brendon this summer for this tour.

Very good album. 10/10. While High hopes may be a little overplayed, it's still a good song. This should be top 3.

The overall sound and feel of this album is just fantastic.

7 All My Friends Were Glorious

This is a great album because it has songs from all of the albums. My personal favorite on this has to be the "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out Melody"

8 Live In Chicago

I'm a Chicago child myself. Born and raised in the city, so cool that they made a whole buyable album thing from a live show here.

9 Live in Denver

Oh my gosh this is the memorable live show for AFYCSO. All of the songs live, with covers of Radiohead and the Smashing Pumpkins. This is so good.
