Well we're just a wet dream for the webzines / make us it make us hip make us scene / or shrug us off your shoulders / don't approve a single word we wroteHey guys, aren't you supposed to sort of, you know, have a record already released before you can bitch about the critics? Or is it because you know how badly you're aping Fall Out Boy with some lame gimmick to try and cover it up that you know the surefire onslaught of shit you're bound to get?

Being catchy is a quality that can only be stretched so far, and Panic! At the Disco doesn't seem to mind that their obnoxious, terribly unoriginal debut only has that one quality going for it. Putting out an album at the same time as something that sounds exactly like one of, if not the most popular band(s) going is just completely integrity void. A Fever You Can't Sweat Out is one of the most soul-deprived, emotionless records I've heard in a long, long time.
