After Laughter Album Reviews


Awful....  DemiLovato21  1 star

I love Paramore but this "new sound" is trash. This is literally what every pop song sounds like. They have so much more talent than this! Bring back the rock Paramore!!


Sick of rock bands going to pop  CodeMonkey6981  1 star

What is up with rock bands switching over to pop? Please stop.


Change  OfficialSalmaT  5 star

I grew up listening their music (as many others do) personally for me, I really liked how this album turned out. It just comes to show that they changed. I believe we should too. People shouldn't expect to hear the same sound from 12 years ago. They were teenagers at the time. They grew up and evolved. They matured. This is them, grown up. I definitely liked how the album turned out.

Legit pop music. If your mind can't expand beyond their "pop punk" era, then you don't deserve Paramore at all. Expand your musical taste and stop being snobs. GROW PEOPLE! BTW Polyrhythms in "Forgiveness" =👍🏽

Takes a few listens...  aygio  3 star

Initially I heard Hard Times and Told You so, and I was extremely unimpressed with both songs. However, I proceeded to buy the album and after a few listens, it definitely grew on me and has some great tracks. It's also definitely not my favorite Paramore album, and there are some songs that just aren't memorable at all (Grudges, for example). Overall, my favorite track is Rose Colored Boy. Other favorites are: Fake Happy, Pool, and Caught In The Middle.


I love Paramore..this album? Not so much  CRitter2482  2 star

First let me say, I’m a huge Paramore fan. I have every album. I’ve seen them in concert 3 times. I don’t know how to explain this album though. To me, it is not Paramore. I think it would have been fine as a Hayley Williams album, that would have fit her personality. But as a Paramore album, it doesn’t fit. I get that they (she) wants to push the limits of their music..but do it as a side project. This does not sound like a Paramore album. It doesn’t feel like a Paramore album. Even though I waited 4 years for a follow up to their self-titled album from 2013, and thought I’d love whatever they came up with, I was highly disappointed. I just hope they course correct and the follow up to this album is back to their old selves again.

Bummer  Hshabsosobfbckanmzlxnxj  1 star

Every artist ends up incorporating pop then sounds completely different. There is hardly any new rock or punk music anymore and I expected it from them. Really don't like this album. Just like every other artist nowadays.


Fantabulous!  Yoooiutrexhhvffdd  5 star

Interesting, complex music put together with meaningful lyrics and Hayley's amazing vocals make a great album!

as always


Amazing Development  KikiDee17  5 star

Lyrics, vocals, and instruments are amazing as always! 💗🏳️‍🌈 This album is a nice change and it's great to see how a band or artist can develop. People don't stay stagnant and neither do their styles. I love Paramore and always will because I'm a true fan. Keep it up!

At first I did not want to like this album but I simply cannot deny it! Absolutely love it


Their best album yet.  Timmay270  5 star

There is seriously not a single song on this album I dislike and I connect with each song's lyrics in their own way. I can only say that about one other album. I've had this album on repeat in my car nonstop since its release. It's that good.

new sound!  sayluh rae a  5 star

i personally love their new sound. i respect them for evolving their style, if you don't then you can keep it to yourself. they wrote an album they're proud of, so let them have it y'all.

Fan 48.5

Good listen  Fan 48.5  4 star

Great variety in the music, classifying this as pop schlock doesn't do it justice. Eerily depressing over happy beats. Seems just about like life in America now days. Worth the $10.


Welk done paramore  Kevindohaeris  5 star

I love this kind of 80's sound


Well...  WantedTRUMP  1 star

The first three albums were great. Self titled was bad, and this is terrible. I get that they are teenagers anymore, but this sounds like a crappy indie pop hipster band. After laughter is the best name for this album, as they aren't even a pop punk band anymore. Bring back old paramore or change the name!
