  • Summary: The follow-up to their platinum debut album finds the band dropping the exclamation point from their name.

  1. An admirably ambitious musical bonanza. [28 Mar 2008, p.64]
  2. It may not be an album to die for, but it is a rare album of note, as much for its context as its content.
  3. 15 tracks of welcomed live drum sounds, symphonies and stacked harmonies.
  4. The fact remains, even if this batch of songs is a little clumsy and without nuance at times, most are memorable and enjoyable.
  5. This is a remarkably solid album that stands as one of the best album made by a pop-punk band this decade, although this music can hardly be considered 'pop-punk' anymore.
  6. For all its craftsmanship, Pretty. Odd. comes across as mannered and overbearing, more studied than exuberant, the magnum opus of a talented band charging wholeheartedly down a blind alley.

    Frontman Brendan Urie has a knack for jaunty pop but Pretty Odd is too clinical and calculated for one so young. [May 2008, p.102]

    I love this album! It totally removes all the negative points that people have about Panic at the Disco. This album is catchy and absolutely I love this album! It totally removes all the negative points that people have about Panic at the Disco. This album is catchy and absolutely delves into a new and interesting, even more refreshing musical style. It incorporates the musical styles of the Beatles and even in some ways the beach boys. It just proves that the band have matured and their recent success in the UK album chart has proved it successful. Expand

    I'm taken aback by how much I like this album. Panic had a strong debut, but it never once felt original. This album truly establishes I'm taken aback by how much I like this album. Panic had a strong debut, but it never once felt original. This album truly establishes an original identity for the band. The tunes are wonderfully musical, and I can't stop listening to it. Expand

    I really love this album. It's incredibly different from their first one, but that's okay because it's not bad at all.
