4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Panic, All Time Low are here!, 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don't Panic (Audio CD)
Don't Panic is the 5th album by Baltimore born pop-punk band All Time Low. This is the album that All Time Low fans have been eagerly awaiting, but does it live up to the hype?

Dirty Work, ATL's 4th studio album was released only last year and let's face it; it was a bit of a disappointment to most All Time Low fans due to its undeniably generic, over-produced sound. Don't Panic aims to rectify this, bringing together the good aspects of each of ATL's last 4 albums and merging them.

Opener `The Reckless and the Brave' is a strong hit with an even stronger hook, this song is guaranteed to stay with you due to its anthemic guitars and pumping drum beat. `Backseat Serenade' has an interesting verse melody and a super-sweet female harmony from Cassadee Pope (Hey Monday) on the irresistible chorus. `If These Sheets Were States', `Somewhere In Neverland' and `To Live And Let Go' are all great songs except they're a little forgettable. `So Long Soldier' on the other hand stands right out as a perfect example of ATL's punk roots. Super-fast drum beats and rough vocals - characteristics of their debut The Party Scene have been neglected in the last few albums but for Don't Panic they've been refined and the punk comeback on `So Long Soldier' is fantastic. Closing track `So Long, and Thanks for All the Booze' also takes some of these punk traits but is dissatisfying as it doesn't deliver quite as much as `So Long Soldier'. Unfortunately `The Irony of Choking On a Lifesaver' is devoid of any real passion and fairly disappointing as a track on its own. Despite this, it's not awful when listening to the album as a whole; it's just not quite up to the high standards the first few tracks of Don't Panic set. `For Baltimore' is very catchy, starting with a simple acoustic guitar before bursting into the classic ATL distorted guitar pattern and hook-filled chorus.

Don't Panic will certainly rectify any damage that 2011's Dirty Work did for All Time Low's reputation. With its victorious choruses and winning riffs in just 12 tracks Don't Panic will brighten your day.
