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.
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.
Paramore ROCKS this album is FANTASTIC they have grown and I am proud of our beans for creating this magnificent album thank you H T and Z don't stop being fantabulous!!!!!!😛
genuinely good songs with the amazing lyrics paramore have always given us. different, but strong as ever! ❤️
Paramore, in any case, please let me know if there's more I can give you...if nothing comes of it then just know we are grateful!
I love this album so much! A new sound, but still hints of the old.
As much as I liked their rock sound that got me into them in the first place, I still listened to this album with an open mind. I don't mind the change and think Paramore is adjusting well to their new style.
i love this so much and i have never bought a paramour song before but to me everything after pool sounds the same
It's different but when you listen to it, it speaks for itself. Paramore isn't a band full of edgy teenagers anymore, it's full of adults making good music🤘🏽
This album is different from all their other music but it's still amazing. Paramore will never make a song that doesn't get through to me. They have always been perfection with whatever they do. I am grateful they are still a band and feel comfortable enough to share their thoughts, feelings, and their hearts with this album. - win the war
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.
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.
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.
I love this kind of 80's sound
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!
It could be a little better. Some parts I don't understand what they're saying in the song hard times.…but it's ok 👌.
This is such a well written and great sounding album. I had to write a review because I went from being a casual fan of paramore to being a super fan of because of this album. Ok I've written enough back to listening to this great album.
This album is soooo good! Beneath all the 80s inspired tunes and colorful videos is a deep insight into the band. Or mostly Haley. It's actually a very sad album lyrically. I wasn't sure about "Brand New Eyes" until a few play throughs and then I loved it. Same here with "After Laughter". It's hard to stop listening to it at times. It's a little different Paramore but every album has a slightly new sound and they're all amazing!!
I've been a Paramore fan since Riot. I've waited for four years for another album but this one I can't get into! I respect and understand that bands evolve but they delve too much into the past! The album may be for others, but not me!
This album is truly a masterpiece. This is original, catchy, and thought provoking music.
