Paramore - brand new eyes

I had been meaning to listen to a Paramore album, so I'm glad I got a chance to hear Brand New Eyes this week. Since this is the first Paramore album I've heard, I cant' say whether the band has grown/matured/whatever, but I'm sure these new tunes will not alienate their fanbase. The music is standard pop punk fare, but Hayley Williams' vocals really propel the songs forward. Now it's clear to me why Paramore's music is adored by young music fans who want to rock out, and it explains why I overheard two teenage girls at the movie theater singing along to "Misery Business" without the slightest inkling of public embarrassment. My favorite moment album moment comes during the track "Where the Lines Overlap" when the music cuts and Williams belts out, "No oooooone [her voice gets a bit surly at the end] is as lucky as us" (2:12). I don't know how many new fans will be drawn in by this album, but it is definitely worth a $3.99 digital download. So go ahead and find out why Hayley Williams is cool like Thundercats.

On a Fueled By Ramen side note, I wish I was as into the new Swellers album as much as others seem to be, although I really like the lyrics to "Dirt."
