Viva Las vengeance has to be the most symbolic album I have ever listened to. Maggie = fans, Gilly = Brendon. It’s a rock opera masterpiece. PATD has always been amazing about changing their sound each album, this is once again a testament to how effortless the change was. Beautifully written, beautifully sung. Brendon’s vocals once again showcase how he is the best male vocalist on the scene right now. Absolutely breathtaking work. HIGHLY recommend.
The last 3 songs say it all.
Sad Clown All By Yourself Do It To Death
Love EVERYTHING Brendon Urie
The vibe of this album is obviously very different when comparing it to past PATD albums. With that said, I believe it’s one of the reasons why I fell in love with this album.
Not the best PATD album, but Brendon’s vocals are strong as always
By Deus Vencer
There are a couple songs I like, but nothing hit quite like prior albums. To sum it up, I went to the Salt Lake Vivint Center concert on his recent tour… I mostly just wanted him to sing prior songs. But the the songs I didn’t like as much in the album were better live.
Takes Some Getting Used To
By Panic Fan 12
I am a huge fan of Panic! At The Disco and I will admit that their Pray for the Wicked Album and Viva Las Vengeance takes some getting used to. Once you listen to it a few times, the tracks start rubbing off on you. I truly enjoy their experimentation with their sound and I’m looking forward to more albums 😊
doesn't deserve as much hate
By Blaire of Car
now, this isn't the best P!ATD album, nor is it the worst, and that is perfectly fine. i enjoy the majority of the songs here (with Don't Let the Light Go Out, Say It Louder, and Sugar Soaker being the highlights for me) and i find it a decent experience to listen to. there are a few wack lines here and there ("stepped on every chord, fell on every sword, yes excalibur," "give me disco, give me T-rex," and "gilly thinks that he's a DJ, makes me want to slit my wrists" being a few good examples) but as always, the instrumentation and vocals are superb. while not as good as albums such as Pretty. Odd. or Death of a Bachelor, it's fine for what it is.
honestly, kinda disappointing
By Maggie T. 🖤
Reading the song titles, I thought there would be nice, clever lyrics and fun beats to dance to. I already knew this would be an album similar to PFTW where none of the songs were truly deep or emotional. However, I didn't expect this. Almost all of the songs sound the same. Brendon is straining his voice to try and hit the high notes his audience has come to adore, and it is noticeable. Literally awful. Sorry Urie & Company, I won't be listening in for this album on the radio any time soon.
Has a clear inspiration…

This album has a very clear theatre/broadway/Grease influence; however, that’s all I could see in it. I have loved every Panic album but this one. If you like this style of music, I think you will really enjoy the album for the instrumentals and his tone. I am giving 3 stars because I think he mostly nailed the concept he was aiming for; however, the album is objectively not his best work (yes, I mean objectively). The lyrics are REALLY empty compared to previous albums. Middle of a Breakup is a great example. It has about 8 truly unique lines in it (broken into 2, 4 line verses) outside of the bridge and chorus repeating…only those small verses in a song over 3 minutes… As a result, it unfortunately says a whole lot of “nothing.” Most of the other songs don’t work out much better. If you are going to go with a concept album like this (where all the songs sound almost identical in style/tone), I think you need to tell a story from song to song. Black Veil Brides’ Wretched and Divine and Starset’s Horizon albums are great examples of this. If this played like an actual Broadway soundtrack, I think it would have gone over much better. I suspect he simply wanted to write an album that was more “fun”, “experimental”, and “challenging.” With that said, I do hope he returns to his pop/alternative roots in upcoming albums.
I love this
