I've been an avid Paramore fan from the start. This record is really really great. Brand New Eyes was my favorite but this ties or exceeds it in a different way. What a good change, what incredible drumming from Ilan, and the production is spot on. I personally could do without the 3 interludes, Anklebiters, and (One of Those) Crazy Girls... but hey thats still 12/17 that are badass. Well done Paramore. I hope this record is their biggest yet!
I guess I just don't get where all the hate is coming from, because this sounds like a Paramore album. The lyrics are on par with their other albums. There's just a couple different elements thrown in. I think people are just bound and determined to find it SOOOO TOTALLY DIFFERENT because the Farros left. And again, as I've said before, good riddance. They were passionless dead weight at the end. They wouldn't have made the band any better. I don't think the three remaining members should be punished for being happy and at peace finally.
