Prefer the first album :) 9 in the afternoon is about the only good track on this CD :)

when I first heard Pretty Odd I wasn't convinced, however, it's an album that definitely grows on you- after hearing it a few times I now like it far more than Fever, the sound is much more refined, Brendon's voice has really matured and improved and everything just sounds much more together and professional. The style is different, but as you listen to it more it becomes a cohesive whole with Fever- it's different, but it's more of a growth from Fever than an abrupt change. A great album, just about every track is brilliant (Especially Northern Downpour.)

Pretty. Awesome (For true fans)

Personally, i love this album.
Yes, i'll be honest, not as much as a fever you can't sweat out but it's still awesome!
It just goes to prove just who the true fans are and shows through comments. The singles released speak for themselves from their positions in the charts.
All you need to know is this album is definately for you if you are a true fan, it's one of those albums you need to hear a few times before it settles, so you need to be committed!
Buy it, well worth it!

I loved their debut album like most people did, but this is a bit of a bore - and why have they got rid of the ! ? is it some kind of restart? or change? cos its change for the worse i'm afraid

I'm shocked that they changed their genre so much. Their first album is one of my favourite albums of all time! Sure, they're inspired by the beatles but if we wanted to hear the beatles we would buy one of their records not one of patd! Nine in the afternoon is quite a catchy tune but the rest are just bland...

A Valiant Effort

While I enjoyed the first album I was still pleased with their second album as it offered something different to audiences. The new sound appeals to a wider rande of music fans and their sound has become less marginalised.
Key tracks include the single "Nine in the afternoon" with it's poppy sound and strange lyrics. The catchy but rawer "She's A Handsome Woman". "The Piano Knows Something I Don't", "From A Mountain In The Middle Of The Cabins", "That Green Gentleman" and the slower "Northern Downpour".
The other songs are obviously worth a listen including "Folkin Around" etc. but the songs I have put down as key songs are my favourites. I nice collection of laid back tunes. Lots af Astronomical references in the songs.

When I heard 'A fever you can't sweat out' Panic! at the Disco were my favourite new band. Since then, they've dropped the apastrophe and have released a second, different but disappointing album. This album does have some good songs, which luckily for the band are the singles 'Nine in the Afternoon' and 'That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)' but some of the other songs on 'Pretty.Odd' such as 'Do You Know What I'm Seeing' and 'When the Day Met the Night' are boring to listen to, and sound like The Feeling, which is never good!

The style of their music in their 2nd album is a light year away from the fantastic anthems of their début. The emo undertones gave the first album a brilliant edge, but as Brendon vowed to shed their band off all sounds of emo (to please critics) their second album has suffered.
With Brendon sharing vocals with another band member, most of the songs past track 10 become intolerable to listen to, if you're a fan of their old style.
I wouldn't whole-heartedly recommend this album to any older fans, but it might still provide a pleasing listen for new fans.

The name says it all

Not heard previous album, only the singles released which didnt really do it for me, but after hearing 9 in the afternoon and That Green Gentleman I had to have this album and it has not disappointed. It is a complete change from before which will obviously upset some people, but also make them new fans. They have apparently been influenced by the beatles and beach boys which is fairly obvious, I think it will be THE album of the summer (if we get one!) Great choruses to sing along to, songs to listen to while having a water fight, driving on summer evenings, chilling out with friends, sunbathing. (Sorry, having a summer montage in my head - its raining here) Buy it you'll enjoy it!
