A solo album in all but name, Death of A Bachelor was written and recorded entirely by lead vocalist/heartthrob Brandon Urie, who boldly aims somewhere between Sinatra and Queen.
Naturally, it's delivered with style, but in spite of the odd production flourish (the jazzy inflections of Impossible Year) there's little of Urie's trademark precocious charm, as if he's performing with the safety on.
