PANIC! AT THE DISCO – PRAY FOR THE WICKED

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

It’s time to re-as­sess this Amer­i­can band’s sixth al­bum, re­leased ear­lier this year, but be­fore mar­ried lead singer Bren­don

Urie an­nounced he is now “pan­sex­ual”.

It’s prob­a­bly no sur­prise PATD made this al­bum after Bren­don fin­ished star­ring on

Broad­way in Kinky Boots. He calls this, “the most fun I’ve ever had mak­ing mu­sic”. Say

Amen (Sat­ur­day Night) and High Hopes are good ex­am­ples of Panic!’s Wicked ways: big, shouty cho­ruses they adore at your lo­cal pub late on the week­end with plenty of air guitar. The lyrics are de­cid­edly cir­cum­spect (“It’s a lit­tle bit com­pli­cated!”) and while it’s not ex­actly a com­ing-out al­bum, we can’t wait to hear how the next Panic! al­bum “pans” out.
