Label: Fueled By Ramen The new album by Panic! at the Disco is called “Death of a Bachelor,” but its core concern isn’t death so much as the afterlife. Brendon Urie, the band’s emphatic mind and mouthpiece, wants to know what happens in the wake of a bacchanal, when the wildest urges thrash only in the rear view. Mr. Urie has no problem reframing circusesque debauchery, a lyrical trademark, in terms of past indiscretion. It happens on “Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time,” which hijacks a twangy guitar riff from the B-52s, and “Hallelujah”. It’s in these flickers of conflicted Dionysian feeling that the album has a sense of purpose, beyond what Mr. Urie describes at one point as “the symphony buzzing in my head.” To that end, it’s fascinating to consider his premise on “Crazy=Genius,” a relationship battle royale with a thundering tom-tom beat. “She said you’re just like Mike Love/But you’ll never be Brian Wilson,” he reports, and it’s easy to imagine just how much that line would have stung.
