  1. 8.0 |   The Independent

    Pray For The Wicked is as sinfully good as anything Panic! have done before, so we might as well indulge

  2. 8.0 |   NME

    Brendon Urie brings buckets of sass and drama to his theatrical, glamorous sixth album under the guise of Panic! At The Disco

  3. 6.7 |   A.V. Club

    The poignant album-ending ballad “Dying In LA” makes you wish there had been more tracks showcasing Urie’s pop-transcending emotive vocals

    Bonkers and creative as ever, but it could be that less really is more

  5. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    While it can be a little too breathless at times, Pray for the Wicked has plenty of strong moments

  6. 6.0 |   Q

    It's breathless and occasionally shallow, but never less than entertaining. Print edition only
