Paramore: One of the Best Albums I've Heard!
Posted July 23, 2014
By dreamingoutloud,


2013-2014 have two big years for Paramore. In 2013, they released this fantastic self-titled album, earning their first #1 album and big hit with "Still Into You." Now in 2014, their current single "Ain't It Fun" has been their highest charting single yet, and the band is arguably more popular than ever. I was incredibly excited for this album in 2013 and bought the day it came out. I certainly wasn't dissapointed.

Being that this is a 17 song album, I'm not going to try and cover every track, but the album as a whole. The album is pretty solid except for track 14, "(One of Those) Crazy Girls," but even that song has a bit of a strong melody, so I have to give this album a perfect score. The band went for a more mainstream approach while retaining some of their rock sound, and it worked extremely well. The singles "Still Into You" and "Ain't It Fun," along with "Fast In My Car," "Grow Up," "Proof," and "Crazy Girls" are probably the poppiest the album gets, but the all have pretty solid guitar lines and stellar drumming, courtesy of Ilan Rubin (lostprophets/Angels & Airwaves). "Part II" and "Anklebiters" have to be my top 2 songs on the album, with "Part II" being a very epic rock song clocking in at nearly 5 minutes and "Anklebiters" being a 2 minute blast of pop/punk energy (seriously though, Rubin must have some killer biceps...). Other standouts would have to be "Fast In My Car," "Now," "Grow Up," "Ain't It Fun," "Still Into You," and "Future," an epic 8 minute closer.

Overall, Paramore have truly created something special. Although some may argue it's their most bubblegum and commercial album yet, I feel like it's got enough creativity and effort to feel like a work of art. Definite reccomendation!
