  1. (Plan A was to stylise the entire title like an MSN Messenger screenname, circa 2005, complete with ridiculous double letters and decorative punctuation. Luckily, I respect you all enough to recognise that some trends are best left dead and buried. Plan B was to call this "Rating is the Most Fun a Gay Can Have Without Taking Its Clothes Off," but that exceeded the character limit. You're welcome on both accounts.)

    So, here we are: a (mostly) adult subset of an Internet pop music forum, congregating to rank over a decade’s worth of music from a band whose earliest photoshoots looked like this:

    [​IMG]

    … good grief.

    Naturally, this begs the question: how did we get here? As it turns out, just about every rate host on this forum uses their introductory post to answer this question in one of two ways. (I know this to be true because I’ve spent the better part of the last month scouring these threads for ideas to copy, since I pretty much have no clue what I’m doing here. There, good, we’ve acknowledged that fact before I spend the coming weeks making a mockery of myself.)

    The first is an overview of the artist’s history, and while I respect the effort that goes into establishing a reverent tone, I also tend to skim these bits (if not skipping them outright). After all, my energies are better spent trying to determine how long I can procrastinate before submitting my scores at the eleventh hour – but don’t any of you dare try any such messery here, or God knows we’ll be lucky to make it through the first ten eliminations.

    Anyways, as far as Panic! is concerned, they went from emo to the Beatles back to emo (but with half the group gone) to… whatever Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! was meant to be to finally acknowledging that Brendon Urie was the only thing anyone really came for in the first place. There’s your history; Wikipedia has the rest.

    The other tactic employed to attract attention is a personal anecdote about early exposure to the artist in question. I actually quite like reading these, as they lend a nice personal touch to proceedings. I’m also fairly certain that none of you care to hear about the first time I heard ‘But It’s Better If You Do’ on my then-friend’s MP3 player on the school bus and how it led this sheltered eighth-grader to discover that music existed apart from my mother’s beloved Lite 95.9. Suffice it to say that I likely never would have found my way to this forum were it not for Panic!’s early influence on my budding music tastes.

    There. Personal anecdote: check. Let’s move onto the rules, shall we?
    • Rate every song on a scale of 0-10, with half-marks allowed
    • One song across the entire rate may be awarded an 11
    • Commentary is, as always, strongly encouraged; basically, don’t leave me alone to pad an entire write-up about ‘Folkin’ Around’
    • RJF had it right: you may rescore a single song after submitting by PMing me before the voting deadline
    • Voting closes at midnight Mountain Time on Tuesday, MARCH 7, 2017
    I’m sure most of you know how this works by this point, so I won’t bother going into further detail; if any clarification is required, feel free to ask in the thread or PM me.

    I...may do this. I loved their debut but they lost me with Pretty Odd, though Vices & Virtues did win me back a little. Not checked out their last 2 albums so this rate could be the perfect opportunity!
     
  6. Maybe I'm being a bad host by showing my hand 7 posts in, but Pretty. Odd. is their worst. Their latest two are far more in keeping with Fever and Vices, so even if you can't get your vote in, I'd recommend listening!

    Yesssss. I'm SO excited for this. Though I likely won't be sliding into your PMs until the day of the deadline, sry pal xx[​IMG]
     
  8. Miss Jackson or LA Devotee to win.

    There's quite a few 10s on Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die.

  9. Yay, I'm excited although I've only heard the debut album and some recent stuff so this will be eye opening to me. I adored the debut album though so it'll be worth it.

  10. Eh, with my work ethic, this is going to be an uphill battle regardless, so I can't really complain.

  11. Yes. I was prelistening all month already (because releases were dry anyway). Not started scoring yet, but will come to that soon.

    I wouldnot necessarily include Razia's Shadow, but I am also not strongly opposing. So that doesnot help you, but at least you have my opinion.

    And I love the original title you wanted for this rate. Amazing.

  12. Never checked out the two recent ones but I was obsessed with the debut, never gave Pretty Odd a chance, and enjoyed a couple of bangers from Vices...

    Would I ruin the results though?
     
  13. I loved their latest album so I think I'll do this and hopefully discover some old gems

    I might do this, but it's gonna be a big might because I've only listened to the first two albums in full so I'm going to need some time with the other three.
     
  15. When have you ever let that stop you, dear?
     
  16. Those of you who are considering voting but aren't familiar with their discography, would more time help incentivise you? Normally a strict deadline helps get things moving, but since several of you have noted a lot of this material being new to you, perhaps it'd make sense to allow a bit more time.

    Of course, it'd only make sense if y'all think it'll improve your chances of getting votes in; otherwise, I might as well stick with the original date. Let me know!

    Sorry for the double post but I just remembered that album where Ryan tried to sing.... lord help us all and deliver us from this tragedy that @Sprockrooster probably likes because he would.

  19. WAIT I actually love Pretty. Odd. and had no idea that was an unpopular opinion!?

    Suddenly the @Sprockrooster is me.
