    An unpredictable but spectacular ride through pop, rock and everything in between

  2. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    Panic! At The Disco’s audience may perpetually renew itself with fresh teenagers, but Urie is maturing as an artist. He takes a lot of risks on Death Of A Bachelor, all of which pay off

  3. 7.0 |   Gig Soup

    Never has a Panic! record sounded so bold and aggressive, confident in it’s own skin and pulsating with pop anthem after pop anthem

  4. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    May overreach, but it's an undeniably fun pop album through and through

  5. 7.0 |   Beardfood

    His soaring personality matches that voice, and he uses it to devastating effect

  11. 6.0 |   NOW

    The more conventional pop/rock tracks detract from his eccentric impulses and feel like compromises

  12. 5.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Panic! take a sharp turn here, returning some to their roots but with the atmosphere of a last hurrah

  13. 4.0 |   Q

    It's a confused affair. Print edition only

  14. 4.0 |   The Observer

    As befits an album Urie has described as a cross between Queen and Frank Sinatra, Death of a Bachelor is hollow and shapeless

  15. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    Perhaps its time for Panic at the Disco to turn off the lights and lock the doors behind them
    Read Review

  16. 4.0 |   The Guardian
