They're not 16 year old kids anymore. Gone are the days of misplaced angst, and in its place, a humbled expression of what it means to be pushing 30 years old. I grew up with this band. When I was 15, so were they. At 15, I felt every lyric because they were going through it, too. Same thing at 17, 19, and 23 years old. Paramore is a band who's sound of ever evolving. They are a self described "genre neutral" band, and for good reason. People who listen to Riot or AWKIF exclusively may not like their new sound. But you know what- who cares? They've always been a band that makes music they can stand by, and this album is where they're at now. I'm proud of Paramore. I'm proud of Hayley, Taylor, and Zac. I can relate to AL so much and it feels good knowing that "growing up" with a band is more than just listening to them in your youth. This album proves that. We. Are. Paramore.
Amazing to see a band fight thru so much adversity and continue to produce great music. This group from day one has been a gathering of a special talents. When their generation gets old enough to look back on Paramore's catalog of music it will be much appreciated. I can appreciate fully this band, even at my age of 50.
This album would be satisfactory, but I can't listen to it without cringing because it sounds nothing like paramore. Each song sounds like the next, and besides the vocals it would be impossible to tell that it's even made by paramore. I would've been happy with just one song where a xylophone isn't overpowering a guitar. They also seem to be copying the misterwives's style, which seems like a shame because paramore had a good thing going before.
I love the the way how Paramore as grown from their first album to now...we can't stay "pop punk" forever, thus a logical progression to "After Laughter". The technical expertise in playing and production is mind-blowing! From a musicians standpoint this is by far their best album...kudos for Paramore for hanging in there and giving us quality music 😊
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!!
What is up with rock bands switching over to pop? Please stop.
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" =👍🏽
THIS IS WORTH EVERY PENNY !! FOREVER MY FAVS
@miseryroute: paramore blessed us with “now” six years ago already and i’m still grateful for live performances like this one .…
shoutout to @paramore for having a song that LITERALLY describes exactly how im feeling rn
Oh so I didn’t give you a paramore shirt ??? 🤔🤔
Every time you sing I fall in love with you again. Andmoreagain......
Is this even the same band..??
One of the things I've always loved about Paramore is that they're a band that makes music for themselves, that's why, despite sounding so different than their other releases, this still feels distinctly like a Paramore album. They don't waste time pandering, or trying to recreate a 10 year old album over and over. However, they haven't dove in to the area of being too poppy either, really. They still have things to to say, and the lyrics still hit deep. It's definitely still alternative, just not the same alternative they started at. The more I listen, the more I love it.
Listening to the lyrics of this song is eery! I relate so freaking much; it's like Hayley read my mind! I might not be as thrilled about their new sound but at least she still writes about my struggle & I will always be a fan of that.
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.
Interesting, complex music put together with meaningful lyrics and Hayley's amazing vocals make a great album!
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
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.
