Editorial Reviews

When Hayley Williams began writing lyrics for the songs that appear on Paramore's self-titled album, she found herself feeling more optimistic than ever before about the future of the band she has fronted since she was 15. "I had this kind of Tony-in-West-Side-Story-moment when he sings about how something is coming. He doesn't know what it is, but it's going to be great, " she says with a laugh. "A lot of the new songs came out of that. They're about needing to find whatever's next. "

Lead-off single "Now" - with lyrics like "if there's a future, we want it now" - sets the urgent tone of Paramore, the Nashville, Tennessee-bred band's fourth album. Given the choice of packing it in or reinventing themselves as a trio, Williams, guitarist Taylor York, and bassist Jeremy Davis chose the latter and made a positive, uplifting album that reflects who they are in the present. "I'm really proud of the fact that this is not an angry Paramore album, " Williams says. Adds Davis: "It's a lot happier and brighter album than people might expect given what's happened. We've wanted to write songs like this for so long, but weren't there emotionally. Now we are. "

The band members holed up to write over a year and a half and emerged with a collection of songs that retains Paramore's youthful spirit, but clearly shows their evolution. It's the most musically adventurous set they've released to date. Which isn't to say the album won't thrill longtime fans. Still present is a ferocious, churning energy (a hallmark of Paramore's sound) on "Now, " "Fast In My Car, " "Proof, " "Anklebiters, " and "Be Alone. " But the album should also earn Paramore new listeners, thanks to the trio's willingness to explore uncharted sonic territory, like the funky, high-stepping "Ain't It Fun" (featuring soulful vocals from Williams, slap-bass from Davis, and the soaring sound of a gospel choir), the doo wop-inflected " (One of Those) Crazy Girls, " and the lilting, string-filled "Hate To See Your Heart Break. " "People obviously give Hayley credit for being an amazing singer, but I don't think they really understand how versatile she is and how much her voice can do, " York says. "You really hear different sides of her on this album. "

I have been a Paramore fan for a long time now. They are actually my favorite band. With their previous albums there was tons of energy, charisma, and just plain old good music. When I found out that Josh and Zac Farro left the band I was devastated. They were both major assets to the band.
When Paramore came out with their Singles EP without the Farro brothers I was hopeful. Their sound was still pretty much intact. I wasn't left disappointed. A little later "Now" came out. I liked it but it wasn't quite like the old Paramore. Then "Still Into You" came out and I was left a little disappointed. Both singles were great, but the signature sound was gone.
Well, their CD came out and I bought it anyway. I have to say that the first listen through wasn't doing too much for me. There were some catchy songs here and there, but the Paramore I used to know was gone. Even Hayley's vocals have slightly changed. But the second time listening through it I realized that this album was extremely well written. The album flows so well together and it just puts you in a great mood. I realized that yes, it isn't the old Paramore, but it shouldn't have to be. These songs are amazing songs that get stuck in your head. I constantly find myself singing songs like "Grow Up," "Ain't It Fun," "Part II," and "Be Alone."
So there you have it from a big fan who was slightly disappointed at first, I give this album five stars. Listen to it once, and then listen to it again and you'll find yourself loving it more and more with each listen. Each song is different so it is definitely not a boring album. They are still Paramore and still bring great music to the table.

I must admit that for the longest time, i truly despised Paramore. For no particular reason (except maybe their fans, but that's a stupid reason to dislike something). Finally, I listened to Riot! and was hooked instantly (truly shocking because my fave bands are Marilyn Manson, NIN, Ministry, ect). Around that time I started reading all the articles about how Hayley Williams split with the original dudes and was making a dramatic return. I thought that Paramore was probably over before I could even fully get into them....

Skip forward a couple months to the release of the single "Now", and i downloaded it cuz...well, it's only a dollar right? I put it onto a random playlist and was blown away by how good it was--almost instantly! Later that night i ordered the album.

It was extra tantalizing waiting for the record to arrive, because it took weeks longer than the seller had informed me (that's what i get for going the cheaper route). It was gonna have to be a damn good record for how long i waited for it. Finally, i lost all interest in hearing it as I decided to listen to Riot! on my walk home one warm spring day. It was a semi-rough day, so it felt nice to chill out and listen to it all the way home at a nice, leisurely pace. I got home, and to my amazement, a small brown package laid waiting in my mailbox!

This particular album had become something of a ridiculous myth in my mind, so I was slightly hesitant to actually listen to it. I decided to eat some dinner first. The wait eventually became waaaaayyyy too brutal so i put it on while making dinner...WOW. I was astonished by how much i liked it upon first listen! I usually need to warm up to new CDs (even ones that are now my very favorites), so this came as quite a surprise.

Paramore returns after a four year hiatus with the release of 2013's self-titled effort Paramore. After `09s successful Brand New Eyes, things from an outward perspective seemed to be falling apart for the band, just as success continued to mount. The exit of the Farro brothers left the question about the future livelihood and lucrativeness of the band, stripped to a trio including Hayley Williams, Taylor York, and Jeremy Davis. The results end up greatly exceeding expectations, as Paramore is one of the year's better and hottest albums. Add to those accolades a number one debut on the charts, and the coronation is complete. Justin Meldal-Johnsen handles the production work.

"Fast In My Car" sets the tone, laden with hefty guitar work, pummeling drums, and feisty vocals from Hayley Williams. "We're driving fast in my car / we've got our riot gear on but we just want to have fun...", she sings enthusiastically on the chorus. "Now", similarly, is a ball of energy, finding Williams in tongue-in-cheek mode, stretching out vocal syllables: "if there's a future, we want it / Now-ow-ow...". "Grow Up" is arguably the best of a fine opening trio, featuring solid songwriting, catchy chorus, and a whiny, invested Williams. Throw in some 80s synths at the conclusion for good measure, and "Grow Up" is rock solid.

"Daydreaming" is equally catchy and memorable, one of the true gems; it benefits from thoughtful development and overall pacing. After a ukelele-accompanied interlude, the show-stopping "Ain't It Fun" gives Paramore one of their best songs, EVER.
