Panic at the Disco - A Fever You Can't Sweat Out: Wikipedia Album Entry

A Fever You Can't Sweat Out is the debut album by rock band Panic at the Disco, released on September 27, by Fueled By Ramen.

The album is split in two stylisticly, with tracks 1 through 7 featuring electronic instruments such as synthesizers and drum machines and tracks 9 through 13 using traditional instruments such as the accordion and organ. Track 8 (Intermission) serves as a link between the two halves, beginning with -style beats before switching to the piano interlude. On the vinyl record version of the album, side A holds songs 1-8 while side B holds songs 9-13, further highlighting the stylistic split in the album.

25,000 collector's editions of the album were released November 14, containing photographs, lyric cards, a DVD of a concert, and many items reminiscent of vaudevillian shows. The collection shipped in a faux velvet-lined box with a purposefully aged appearance. Because of the limited release, second hand versions are selling for much higher than retail.

The album primarily deals with social issues that the band points on through various songs. Topics such as sanctity of marriage, adultery, alcoholism, prostitution, and religions are woven throughout the album. Guitarist Ryan Ross also relates two of the songs to living with an alcoholic father. The album has sold over 1.6 million copies in the United States and 2.2 million worldwide.
