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.

Like many, I had been looking forward to this album for years, and like many, I was concerned when I heard that the Farro Bros. left the band. I was afraid the band would cease being Paramore and instead become The Hayley Williams Experience. So were those fears warranted? Sort of.

I've listened Paramore (the album) probably 15-20 times now. My first impression was that it was an eclectic collection of songs cobbled together non-cohesively. Brand New Eyes, All We Know Is Falling, and, to a lesser extent, Riot, all seem to be relatively cohesive and have a generally consistent, poppy alternative rock style. This album is largely a break from that formula. Some songs sound a bit like they would fit in well on one of their older albums, but the bigger story is how many songs do not. The album almost seems experimental at times, like Hayley is taking the opportunity in the absence of her former bandmates to branch out and see what she can do. In general, most of the songs are more poppy than previous Paramore works, although some songs seem even heavier and deeper than you might expect (Track 17, "Future", comes to mind).

So does it work? For some people it may. Ask yourself this -- when you buy a CD, do you typically pick a few tracks you like, listen to those, then pretty much ignore the rest of the disc? If so, you will probably find a few tracks you like here. If you're more likely to put in a CD, start it on track 1, and listen to it until it hits the end and your player spins down, you might be a little more frustrated by the constantly changing styles you will find here. Personally, I fit in the latter group, so I was a little disappointed coming off of Brand New Eyes.
