Description & Features+

When Hayley Williams began writing lyrics for the songs that appear on Paramore's self-titled new 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. The band members holed up to write over the past 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."

Ratings & Reviews+

Paramore - Paramore is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously get this album Now-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow! Confession: I was not a huge Paramore fan. Sure, I dug their hit singles such as "Misery Business", "That's What You Get", and "The Only Exception." However, not to offend anybody but, their albums felt like it had too much filler. So I went into their latest self-titled album, Paramore, with the same mentality. Wow! Just wow! The entire album is rock hard solid! Filler no more. With the Farros gone they brought in drummer Ilan Rubin (Nine Inch Nails, Lostprophets, Angels & Airwaves) for recording. Let me tell you, the drum work on this album packs whole lotta' punch. Along with playful guitar hooks of Taylor York and pumping bass of Jeremy Davis. And what's her name... that's right, Hayley Williams. Boy, that girl can sing - letting loose like some female version of Freddie Mercury on faster songs, and softening down for those vulnerable moments. Combine all of this and call it chemistry. Or simply good music. For me, this album has so many elements that somewhat recalls the ambition of London Calling, but more in a poppy Blondie new-wave kind of way. Take for example, "Daydreaming" (track 4) - total Debbie Harry right there; but it still retains that Paramore sound. Moving on to funky groove of "Ain't It Fun" (track 6) that features a gospel choir in the middle. The absolutely gorgeous slow rock-ballad "Hate To See Your Heart Break" (track 13) that'll most likely be a Bic lighter moment at concerts. Two-minute punk song called "Anklebiters" (track 10). And to assure us that they were playful with this album we have not just one, but three ukulele interludes! Hayley sings about trying to make it 'saving money only eating Top Ramen' on one of them, "Interlude: Holiday" (track 11). It all works. To wrap this up, I feel like this is a great new chapter for Paramore and look forward to what they will become. And yes, this album has now officially made me a Paramore fan!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Torn! Huge paramore fans. Was such a let down at first. I would say maybe two songs on the cd are paramore-ish and the rest is not them at all BUT if we listen to the cd and act as though its not paramore then we enjoy most of it. I went on youtube and found two new songs that didnt make the cd and it made us angry - the two songs were more their style. I cant say I hate the cd because we listen to it but we dont love it and the more I think about it, the more I want paramore to pay me back my money. So I will stick in the middle. True paramore fans will not like this cd. But if your like us and like many different kids of music, you will enjoy it.
