The alternative rock band Panic! At The Disco has returned with their sixth studio album. It’ll have you screaming the lyrics or attempting to hit Brendon Urie’s iconic high notes. The album opens with the second single called “(F*** a) Silver Lining” a very catchy tune that welcomes all old and new P!ATD fans to this new era of music that the band has embarked on. Frankly, they never fail to deliver a fresh sound with each new album, no wonder they’ve been able to stick around for over 10 years and still have a huge fan base.

The next song is the lead single “(Say Amen) Saturday Night” This song will make you sing your heart out! Seriously, Urie’s high note in the song will have you quaking, but it doesn’t stop there. If you are an old fan, do you recall “This Is Gospel” a very popular P!ATD song? Well it  turns out Urie made “Say Amen” the prequel to the song.

If you’re new to P!ATD  I advise you to check out the music videos  “Say Amen,” “This is Gospel” and “Emperor’s New Clothes” (In that order). I promise you it’ll make sense what this talented man did. The last single “High Hopes” is a  inspirational upbeat song that sends a message to all of us that we have to raise our expectations even if we fail, because that failure will help us grow. Urie doesn’t forget his roots, and in “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” he reflects back on his success in the music industry and also tips his hat to his mother for allowing to get this far.

Urie wraps up with the beautiful piano ballad “Dying in LA”  that will leave you in tears. Overall Pray for the Wicked is an album that will have you feeling determined and joyful, what more can you ask for?

Panic!’s new album can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Google Play Music, and Deezer.

Are you a P!ATD fan? Which song off the album is your favorite?
