AllMusic Review by

After selling ridiculous quantities of their debut album, 2005's A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, and quickly going from being an opening act to headlining arena shows, the barely legal Panic! at the Disco have decided the time is right for their own collector's box set. (Just goes to show how many records they really did sell to think Fueled by Ramen/Decaydance was willing to fork over the cash to put this whole thing together.) So for only about $50 down (yeesh!), fans can have everything Panic at their fingertips. Included in the extravagant vaudevillian-themed collection -- which comes in a cardboard cigar box complete with red velvet lining -- is: the Fever album (though only in a paper slip envelope and not the original case); a DVD with a concert set, and some live interview footage; a poster; four photos; tarot lyric cards; a blank diary; an old-timey phenakistoscope; a paper eye mask, and an early-20th century-looking newspaper and "tour program" from the band's 2006 summer tour. Everything fits in nicely with the emo-meets-Moulin Rouge theme the band seems to love so much, and though it all looks nice enough, it's doubtful that any but the most zealous of fans will have much use for any of this (besides the CD and DVD) when initial curiosity wears thin after a few minutes. For the money, you'd probably just be better off trying to track the DVD down on eBay.
