Genre: alt rock, pop punk, baroque pop

The 2000s pop punk wave had a variety of subgenres thrown into the mix but I don’t think anyone would have seen something like this coming. Panic! At The Disco burst onto the scene with a record that was unlike any other; it was organized as a theatre show essentially, even being split into two distinct sections with an introduction and intermission. It’s dense and at times difficult to understand, and the best part is, the group were barely high school graduates upon its release. Fever dazzles with insanely intricate lyrics and just as interesting instrumental, which is based on pop punk roots but sprinkled with horns, strings and synthesizer. The entire project is simply insane and is one of the most dense but also most entertaining projects not only in the genre, but from the time as well. There really aren’t many albums that come as close to this daring artistry presented here, especially as a debut. This album lingers on like a dream long after its stopped playing, proving that maybe life really is just a fever you can’t sweat out.
