I hate to be "that guy", but this band will never live up to how great of an album "Pretty.Odd." was. It's so sad to me that they went back to their generic dancey pop-punk drivel with Vices & Virtues. Pretty.Odd. is honestly one of the most gorgeous albums I've ever heard and still remains a classic to me. How someone could not like those songs is seriously a mystery to me.
PO grew on me, and it eventually became my favourite record of the band.
