    Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! paints an exciting picture of Panic! At the Disco's genre-bending career trajectory to come.

    This is the sound of a band who have re-discovered the party (the good bits, the bad bits, the seedy bits) and the result is that Too Weird... is an album that pops and fizzes with excitement, vim and intent.
  4. The different moods and soundscapes take awhile to digest and let sink in, but every trip back to the dim dance floor has your feet leaving the disco with fresh moves and new accolades.

    Teeming with melodic hooks and reflective lyrics, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! is both hypnotic (the lingering closer “The End of All Things”) and beguiling (Far Too Young to Die” and second single “This Is Gospel”).

    It took eight years, but this Sin City-born emo-glam squad finally made its Vegas Album.

    Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! is cold and computerized, celebrating an aesthetic that proudly values overbearing, repetitious style over creative substance and varied timbres.

    Maybe it's their sound, maybe their lyrics, but this band always keeps me coming back for something new, and they never disappoint.

I'm going to be jamming out to this one for a while, and I'm sure there are songs on this album for everyone to do the same. Expand

At the Disco is back with their fourth studio album. Many people complain that they do not sound like "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out". Well to be perfectly blunt with you, they haven't sounded like "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" since "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out".

    Panic! At the Disco's sound changes as the years progress, and it's for the better. This time

    I have been a fan of Panic! At The Disco since I was nine years old. each album was different and unique in it's own way. A Fever You Can'tI have been a fan of Panic! At The Disco since I was nine years old. each album was different and unique in it's own way. A Fever You Can't Sweat Out was incredible. Pretty Odd took me some getting used to but now I love it. Vices And Virtues was great. Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die is a masterpiece. Every song, bar two in my opinion, were all incredible. Ingenious lyrics, as is the norm for all Panic! albums, matched wit great beats and the occasional music video, makes for a great album. Expand

    Definitely just "okay", far from a 10 for sure.
    Obviously the 10's are from fans that can't give their favorite band anything less than that,

    Obviously the 10's are from fans that can't give their favorite band anything less than that, sadly they are lying.
    I'm so glad I waited and didn't actually buy the album, there was a couple goodies though.
    They need to reinvent their sound again, sounds to similar to everything on the radio from a "Rock" band (even though it's more electronic than anything)
