Panic! At the Disco’s Debut Album Reveals A Bit of Promise But It Only Shows that Their Beginnings, It was Just Their Amateur Hour

So this is where it all began for Panic! At The Disco. Their debut album does not really show what the band is capable of doing and may not even divine that the band will have a future in the music business. This is because except for some delightful tracks with titles that I cannot figure out, I frankly could not distinguish one track from another, especially in the first half of the album. What’s the use of having those asinine titles if they just don’t mean anything or if it does not push thier work forward to a much higher goal. What I can say though is that Brendon Urie’s voice has improved a lot since this album and after years and years of singing, he has also learned how to use his voice to show emotion, instead of just blasting it all out, which is what he does in most of the songs in this album. Anyway, they can be forgiven because this is their debut offer and what is important, at least in my book, is that out of all the thousands of bands who want to make it big every year, they were at least able to produce three tracks here which got college radio, and more importantly, mainstream radio playing their stuff, thus bringing them into the mainstream. The more people hear your music, the more chances you get of having new fans – and that is what I think is the point of all that songwriting and playing in garages or doing gigs in barely there places, to make your musician voices be heard. At least for Panic! At the Disco, and despite the changes in their band’s line-up, they were able to sustain that energy of producing music, that the masses like, way into the next decade.

A Fever You Can't Sweat Out is the debut studio album by American rock band Panic! at the Disco. Produced by Matt Squire, the album was released on September 27, 2005, on Decaydance and Fueled by Ramen. The group formed in Las Vegas in 2004 and began posting demos online, which caught the attention of Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz. Wentz signed the group to his own imprint label, Decaydance, without them having ever performed live. It is the only album released during original bassist Brent Wilson's time in the band, but the exact nature of his involvement in the writing and recording process became a source of contention upon his dismissal from the group in mid-2006.
