Album Fight: Too Weird to Live. Too Rare to Die! vs. Death of a Bachelor


Too Weird To Live. Too Rare To Die!

Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! is the fourth album released by pop rock band Panic! At The Disco. If you’ve ever listened to this album, you will know that it sounds very different than any of their albums they have made in the past.This album is so unique because of its similarity to electronic and hip-hop music. This was the first album I heard by Panic!, and it instantly made me fall in love with them, which is why I like it slightly more than Death Of A Bachelor.

  • Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! was number two on the U.S. Billboard 200, earning the band their second number two.
  • The album was also number one on U.S. Billboard Top Alternative Album and Top Rock Album.

The Songs:

  • “This Is Gospel” is the first song off the album, and definitely one of my favorites. It’s such a good first song for such a fun album, and you instantly fall in love with lead vocalist Brendon Urie’s voice.
  • “Miss Jackson” was the first song I heard by Panic!, and it made me obsessed with their music. This song will make you want to rock out hard, so hard your friends will think you’re crazy. But trust me, this song is worth it.
  • “Vegas Lights” is so fun, it’s almost like you are actually in Vegas. It’s electronic sound along with the rock makes it the perfect song to rock out and sing along to.
  • “Nicotine” was my least favorite song on this album when I first heard it, but after hearing it multiple times, I’ve learned to love it.  Brendon Urie’s vocals in this song, along with the catchy music, make this song one of my favorites.
  • “Girls/Girls/Boys” this song is so…retro? I don’t know how else to describe it, but every time I hear it, it reminds me of a song you would hear in the 60s or 70s. The music is so catchy, and that alone makes it one of my favorite songs off the album.

Death Of A Bachelor

Death Of A Bachelor is pop rock band, Panic! At The Disco, fifth studio album. Death Of A Bachelor consists of eleven full length songs, each crafted perfectly to create this amazing record. This album was released on January 15, 2016, and even over a year of it being released, it never fails to get me on my feet. Each track adds a new, unique feeling to Panic! which makes it better than Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! In my opinion.

The Songs:

  • “Victorious” opens up the album with frontman Brendon Urie’s infectious voice. This is best track to start us off with because it will get you on your feet and will have you dancing all around. Urie’s voice mixed with the incredible beats will have you craving more from this beat-crazed record.
  • “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time” has possibly the best introduction you will ever hear from Panic! The increasing drums with Urie’s voice starting soft the picking up speed will have you turning the dial all the way up. The chorus is an all out rock song that will a strain your vocal chords while trying to match Urie’s pitch.
  • “Death Of A Bachelor” holds the iconic name of the title, so you already know this track will be unforgettable, which makes it one of my favorites off the album. Urie does an amazing thing that always makes me want to mimic his voice, especially when he sings “Seems so fitting for happily ever after, how could I ask for more?” Panic! always knows which instruments to use and “Death Of A Bachelor” definitely incorporates the perfect ones.
  • “LA Devotee” is one of those songs that you absolutely cannot sit still while listening to it. Between the infectious beats and Urie’s angelic high pitched vocals, you will be jumping all around for the entire three minutes and seventeen seconds.
  • “Impossible Year” is an absolute must listen. Only accompanied by a piano, Urie deepens and slows down his voice for this beautiful closing track. This is what music is. “Impossible Year” does everything right.
