Paramore are always evolving and this album is a pop masterpiece. Great lyrics and catchy beats. A must for music fans.
Where has Paramore gone?
One of the worst albums I've listened to. Paramore was my favourite band and have been for past 12 years but this is awful and isn't the rock music. They've sold themselves like msot rock bands these days. Get Jeremy back and get rid of Zac and the tunes like Decode, Misery business and Emergency that's what we want! Can't forget Monster too. They aren't even coming to Birmingham either on there European tour! I have certainlty saved myself some money for not paying to see them with rubbish like this they've some how produced.
ALBUM OF THE YEAR?
This is absolutely excellent. Took me a bit to get used to the new sound but boy is this a brilliant album. The juxtaposition of the light hearted, high energy instrumentation versus the depressive and anxiety ridden lyrics makes this a masterpiece. Great work by an already great band. 👏
New but still them
A different sound to their original stuff, yes. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so.
It certainly brings back memories of the late 80s/early 90s. Think Blondie and you're about there.
I love it.
Being a genre neutral band suits Paramore
More poppy than previous offerings but still with Hayley's signature vocals, their best lyrics to date coupled with really rich layered instruments with an 80s flair. This album is a joy to listen to and makes me laugh until I cry.
Sounds like Hayley has lost her way.
She went all Axl Rose circa 2000 and alienated everyone who made the band what it was and sound the way it sounded.
Hayley and her hire Guns sound more like a bad 80's cover band trying to cover No Doubts worst ska era B Sides. Or how Train currently sound. It amazing how bands who made great music can just stall soo badly.
This hopefully will be a blip, she'll get some of the old band back and get back to making decent songs rather than this pap.
I'm a long time fan of this group. Loved all the previous albums but this is nowhere near as good. Where are the guitars and riffs that are Paramores trademark sound. Hayley's voice is brilliant as ever but this album is nothing more than a collection of middle of the road ballads which will alienate existing fans and is unlikely to attract many new ones. Sorry but I won't be buying it and will have to content myself with listening to the epic 'Riot' which to me will always be the true Paramore sound.

Emotional and beautiful. Loved it
Different but still good.
This album is very different to the older Paramore songs but, I still respect and like it.
'Tell me how' is such a nice & mellow song. & 'Hard times' is feel good and relatable!
Great new vibe
