Panic at the Disco and Be Your Own Pet are hitting hard with their second albums. Kidzworld has the reviews!

Panic at the Disco :: Pretty. Odd.

On their second album, Pretty. Odd., Panic at the Disco have traded the exclamation point in their band name for two periods in the album title. Like their first disc, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, Pretty. Odd. is a little ridiculous, but it’s also different from what we’ve come to expect from these boys from Nevada. It’s hard not to notice that Panic borrows a lot of style from The Beatles as they slap together harmonicas, horns, and big drums like in surefire hit single Nine in the Afternoon. This time around they’ve traded some techno dance sound for a few happy, historical, musical treats. And it works.

Fun Facts

  • After six months of writing and recording in Nevada, Panic scrapped all of the work they had done because they didn’t like the direction the album was going.
  • To market Pretty. Odd. Panic at the Disco had puzzles and contests on their website including hidden song titles and short music clips.
  • Panic at the Disco dropped the exclamation point from their name early in 2008, but say they never really considered it part of their name in the first place.

Be Your Own Pet :: Get Awkward

In Get Awkward, Nashville skate-punks Be Your Own Pet do what they do best, which is ramp up the rock and get people jumping around. The vocals are loud, hard, and catchy, and the band doesn’t miss a beat, especially on tracks like The Kelly Affair, and Zombie Graveyard Party. BYOP’s first album was a hard act to follow, but Get Awkward does it perfectly. It’s a fast and loud party in a can. If you can’t rock out to Be Your Own Pet and Jemina Pearl’s riot inducing vocals, something is seriously wrong with you!

Fun Facts

  • Three tracks off the UK release, Black Hole, Becky, and Blow Yr Mind were removed by Universal lawyers for the US release because they were too violent.
  • A recent posting on their Myspace said that these deleted tracks would be on a special EP available sometime this summer.
  • Former band members Jamin and Jake Orrall play in the band JEFF.
