Talahomi Way - The High Llamas Previews and Reviews

Based on 4 critics - Overal Score:  70/ 100

Latest album from the veteran Indie rockers led by Sean O'Hagan. For the past 18 years, The High Llamas have been following their own lights, making records, and essentially occupying their own genre in doing so. Their sound is timeless; elements of retro and modern share the space, creating a unique time and place that is outside the lines of history as we experience it. Talahomi Way is the latest evolution in their body of work, a record that will please those who enjoy their musical adventures while also providing a draft of their eternal mystery to neophyte listeners.

Panic! at the Disco - Vices & Virtues Reviews, Preview and more

Based on 8 critics - Overal Score:  61/ 100

Vices & Virtues is the third studio album by American rock band Panic! at the Disco, released on March 22, 2011 on Fueled by Ramen. Produced by John Feldmann and Butch Walker, the album marks the debut of the band's two-man lineup, featuring vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie and drummer Spencer Smith, following the departure of primary lyricist and guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker in July 2009.

The record originated from the departure of primary lyricist and guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker in July 2009. While Walker and Ross' exit left a hole in the Panic! songwriting regime, the experience became the catalyst for Urie finding his own voice and the confidence to take over as the band's principal songsmith. The lyrics, billed as a "study in human behavior", touch on themes of manipulation and confusion. Vices & Virtues took over two years to create, and the increased time in the studio brought forth new musical experimentation.
