Ironically enough, Death of a Bachelor alludes to the afterlife momentum. It seems like the album is tied to a strong separation from an ex-lover. Frontman Brendon Urie sings, “Then the time for being sad is over/And you miss ’em like you miss no other” on “Hallelujah.” Catch and listen to Urie ridin’ solo-rific. Twelve years ago, Panic! at the Disco took the world by surprise and Urie showcases his underlying talent with energetic/emo/aggressive lyrical ballads. The title track, “Death of a Bachelor,” sums up the theme in one sentence, “people have told me I don’t look the same/I’m walking the long road.” “Crazy=Genius” is overly groovy, finger-snapping good, as he sings “You can set yourself on fire, but you’re never going to learn.” Old fashioned big band meets crazy, fast-paced tempos and Urie pieces together his past and present with 11 memorable tracks. Drowning out on “Impossible Year,” it’s a slow, painful death of Urie’s former band mates (“never air to breath, never in betweens”). The clouds have covered Panic! at the Disco’s sunshine and the older, more redefined Urie is building a house “on memories,” which is simultaneously exciting and terrifying. Don’t forget to “take my picture now.”
