New Album Review: Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die by Panic! At The Disco

Ok, this is one of the most fabulously weird albums I've heard in a while. It was out there, but I loved it. It was a crazy mix of synth pop and electronica, and the result was an entirely unique and dramatically dark album. The beat is relentless and the tunes rocked my face off. The energy and passion level throughout the album is off the chain (my best friend just informed me that I cannot pull off saying "off the chain" to which I replied, "I know. And yet I feel compelled to say it. But the fact that I say words like 'compelled' instantly disqualifies me from saying any cool slang terms.") Even so, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die is at bare minimum off the chain. The only fault I have is that it's slightly wordy for a title and therefore rather consuming to type out. But other than that, the album is nearly flawless.

I put almost every song on insta-repeat and I'm pretty sure you will too. Unless you only listen to music like oh, say Celine Dion or something. In that case, you will most certainly not enjoy this album. For the rest of you, check out  Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die here:

New Album Review: When the Night by St. Lucia

In the interest of saving time, let's get straight to the music! Sorry kids, my life has has been out of control! (But in the best way possible, so I neither have any complaints nor am I worried about getting in trouble with my mother.) Here's a new release from a band I've grown to love. St. Lucia has a great sound and a fresh take on music. Make sure you check out the entire album The Night Comes Again. I also included their past albums so you can love them as much as I do, and we can all be on the same page.
