Paramore by Paramore album review articles mostly rave about how the band moved on to launch their fourth studio album. Nobody thought the group would still be around after losing two members. Paramore is now a trio. It took 4 years before they were able to produce and release their follow-up album.
Thankfully, the band still sounds intact. If you are a big Paramore fan, you would surely find this CD amazing. Here are some of the outstanding tracks that earned the raves from music critics.
‘Fast in My Car’ serves as a strong opening to the album. It sounds more like a rebellious anthem, something that characterizes the usual element of the band. The lyrics easily catch attention. Interestingly, the music especially the thumping drums and guitar bits fit the verses perfectly.
‘Grow Up’ is the first cut that sounds more fun. The song has a unique bounce and easiness that balances the anger and intensity set by the first two tracks in the album. Lead vocalist Hayley Williams bring about some mild irritation in her delivery.
Daydreaming is not the whimsical song that you initially perceive it to be. It is rock solid, though. The track teeters between ballad and mid-tempo. It is a sweet song about creating a world that ideally matches the world created by one’s own fantasies.
‘Ain’t It Fun’ is directly addressed to the modern youth of today. It has the sarcasm to ask a teenager to realize that the world is not revolving around him. It sounds like a rock song but it is out of the ordinary because of the presence of xylophone complemented by choir-like delivery.
‘Part II’ is obviously a sequel to a song from its recent album, ‘Let the Flames Begin’ taken from ‘Riot.’ Williams sings out her readiness to compromise her own happiness for others’ welfare. You may instantly agree that it is a sullen track. Guitar solos and frenetic drum beats make it an ideal action film soundtrack.
The second single released from the album is more like an uptempo love song. Still Into You could be a theme song for couples who have been together for quite a long time now. It tells about all the ups and downs of a well-nourished romantic relationship.
If hip hop followers call naysayers as ‘haters,’ Paramore prefers to call them ‘Anklebiters.’ In definition, the song describes those people as those who prey on others’ actions. The band advises listeners to rely on their selves. It also calls out to neglect what anklebiters usually say.
‘Proof’ aims to get the adrenaline rush back after listening to a couple of slower songs in the album. The singer uses rock to convince his man to get into deep-sea diving, wherein love serves as the sole safety gear. The big score comes at its bridge.
‘Hate to See Your Heart Break’ is among the few ballads in this CD. To most listeners, it could easily pass as a country song. The vocalist takes us down to her memory lane and relates how she was hurt by love.
