Christopher Walken once begged Will Ferrell for more cowbell. He said he had a fever and the only cure was more cowbell! Here's a new cure, Panic! At The Disco. Emo meets post-punk dance floor electricity on A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, the debut from the Vegas quartet signed to Pete Wentz's (Fall Out Boy) new label. Lyrically, Panic! Wax emotastical about slutty ex-girlfriends, the lameness of the scene and broken hearts. Musically they take on a new-wave direction and distance themselves from their peers in Wentz's band with jacked up synths and groovy, exciting rave-ups. It's new wave emo, let's call it nemo, a new genre where doe-eyed boy pop-punk meets 80's nostalgic keyboard dance numbers. Panic! At The Disco are solid gold and you definitely want to catch their fever.
