I’ve talked about them at least 3 times since I started this blog a year ago, consisting of last week once I saw them live for the sixth time.

You are watching: Eyes are the size of the moon

As dramatic as it sounds, i don’t think it’s a stretch come say the they’ve readjusted my life – in regards to what music i listen to, which, in turn has additionally helped form me into who ns am.

This weekend, after 7 years of no hope wanting come (permanently) show my love for them, I gained a tattoo.

It’s a pocket watch collection to nine o’clock, or together I describe it, “nine in the afternoon”. This is the song that influenced it:


Now, since this is Music Monday and also not Tattoo Tuesday (although I’m considering do “Tattoo Tuesday” a thing, if just so the I can talk about all the tattoos ns have/want), let’s carry this post back to music.

Pretty.Odd. to be Panic!’s 2nd album. It come out in march 2008, three years after ~ 2005’s A heat You Can’t Sweat Out, and it was a dramatic shift in sound.

At the time, I had actually been a pan for around a year and was devoted to all things Panic! (um, ns still kinda am). So I usually memorized the leaked version before the actual album came out and also for month (years?) after, I would certainly sing the (largely nonsensical) lyrics as if my life depended upon it.

There’s one oft-told story the one time when we were driving to Quebec, and it was raining yes, really hard, and also everyone rather in the car was favor “we’re going to drown, this is terrible!” but I was sitting in the earlier seat blithely singing along to “That green Gentleman”.


Pretty.Odd. to be an album the largely split fans. Some people preferred the mellow, hippie-like top quality of most of the songs, while rather missed the theatrical, vaguely vaudevillian sound the made Panic! stand the end in the very first place. Ns loved this album at the time, but now, after 6 years, a separation within the band (it’s still too shortly to talk around when Ryan Ross and also Jon pedestrian left), two albums, and also multiple tours, i realize that i barely hear to that anymore. Castle usually just play “Nine in the Afternoon” live, though ns think their very first album tour post-split (for 2011’s Vices & Virtues, i m sorry is my favourite P!ATD album), they played “That green Gentleman”.

There room songs that i think still hold up: “NITA”, “TGG”, even “Northern Downpour” (if you have the right to listen to it without wanting come cry).


“Mad as Rabbits”, for every its nonsensical lyrics, is additionally pretty solid, yet songs favor “Behind the Sea” (the only song fully sung by Ryan Ross) or “She’s a Handsome Woman” (which was never my favourite to start with) often tend to fall flat, also after a lengthy time there is no listening to them.


What walk this song also mean?!

Although, I simply looked at the track list again because that the very first time in forever, and also I actually quite like most of the songs. I think you need to be in a specific mood to listen to Pretty.Odd.
