After releasing their third studio album, Vices and Virtues, Panic! at the Disco seems to have chosen a slightly different path in comparison to their past work. The band has relied much less on computer generated techno sounds and is now depending on skilled guitarists to back them up. This change stems from the reduced head count of the band, as the group has officially slimmed down to two permanent members. Lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie became the new songwriter once other members of Panic! dropped out, which gave Urie the chance to have full creative control. I would like to commend him on his success of keeping the originality of Panic! alive through the unique lyrics that fans have become so accustomed to.

Green Day's latest live album Awesome as Fuck is the first live release since the explosively popular Bullet in a Bible in 2005. Although the new album is reminiscent of the original live punk-pop energy, it generates its own edge that will continue to draw in listeners, new and old.
