Spottie, Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:44 (nine months ago) Permalink

i guess ilan rubin might be a better drummer technically than farro but farro's work has a pretty specific personality that i missed on the s/t initially. his fills on "ignorance" are wild imo

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:47 (nine months ago) Permalink

also idk what happened but his playing generally leveled-up on brand new eyes in every way imo, all of those drum tracks are furious

yeah, his drumming helps make that record, along with that big overblown production that for some reason I hated on every other '00s rock record except that one

I don't think they'd cover up the end of a romantic relationship by saying really mean things about how Hayley ran and controlled the band (and also how unchristian she was) so I doubt that's why they left the band.

oh yeah i'm realllly abbreviating history there but idk i think a huge reason they left is that literally every lyric on brand new eyes is kinda like "fuck u josh"

also from what i remember about it at the time the farro bros "we're leaving the band" letter was super like... terrible bad faith shit

tbh maybe my idea of why they left was baseless speculation at the time and i've just carried that in my head for so long that i thought it was true so nm

I didn't follow the personal drama b/c I'm too old and indifferent but the fact they made their best album without those dudes has gotta burn a little. Paramore was good precisely because it was the kind of record they probably couldn't have made with two devout Warped Tour loyalists in the band

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:08 (nine months ago) Permalink

Reminds me--on a much, much larger scale--of what happened with Q and Not U back in the day. They were a good band, then they dumped their bassist and made a big show of how they'd dumped their bassist and it really seemed to energize them and open the door to all sorts of new possibilities. This was like that but on more of a Fleetwood Mac scale

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:10 (nine months ago) Permalink

xp I think the lyrics point to that intimate conflict and also more generally about the tension in the band, sometimes specifically so ("I can't believe we almost hung it up", and then some of them did, but the album pretends they can move on as long as the last jabs are hers (re 'fuck u josh' and maybe 'fuck you zac and, jeremy, and i'm not so great either (but taylor seems like he's always been the nice guy))

Echoing the love for Farro's BNE drums and hope there's some aggression on the new album to make use of them

yeah this is a more accurate portrait of what's going on in that record

The way she prods at and questions her faith in the band and Faith in general on BNE in a really aggressive way, like some hurt T Rex, over these machine gun drums and pop punk emo makes it one of my favorite _pop_ albums in general, so full of drama.

abcfsk, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:15 (nine months ago) Permalink

Yeah it's funny how the ostensibly very positive lyrics on "Looking Up" - at least when appearing on the same album as "Ignorance" and "Playing God" and "Feeling Sorry" - can come off as really patronising and dismissive.

I seriously just got into a car accident about two hours ago while Hard Times was playing on my car stereo. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and I am pretty sure the other driver's insurance will have to pay (I was rear-ended while being forced to stop during a right-hand turn), but my care looks like crap even more than it did before. Some sort of sign.

I think I'm the only one here who hates the new album, but would they still be worth seeing if I'm not into the new stuff? They're coming in December but I don't think I can take 90 minutes of polyrhythmic beach party Paramore

Evan R, Thursday, 5 October 2017 15:07 (one month ago) Permalink

There are a lot of videos and setlists available from the tour. They are playing plenty of older stuff.

I had tickets to their DC show, but found out a couple weeks ahead of time that I couldn't make it. Put my tickets up for sale online and no one bought them. There were several other sellers there, all seemingly trying desperately to unload tickets and taking losses at the last minute. As far as I know none of them sold. This was my first time trying to sell tickets online, so I don't know if this is the usual experience, but I would have thought there would have been more demand for Paramore in a 3,000-seater.

the first 6 songs on the album are fav stretch of any album i've heard this year... still warming up slowly to the back half

they sold out radio city last night (6,000 cap) but idk what that means really

i don't think this album not catching on means much ultimately... i think they're a pop band now but wouldn't imagine them making more songs that sound like "hard times" et al anyway

J0rdan S., Thursday, 5 October 2017 19:11 (one month ago) Permalink

yeah I wish I felt the same way. They sound tacky as fuck to me, and unfortunately the album's best written songs are the ones that lay them on thickest. Like, the whole album is a wash for me, I can have my pick of either second-tier material or good songs saturated in a shtick I find insufferable.

Fake Happy is my favourite song on the album. Hope it can do an Ain't It Fun and give them a slow burning hit single. I'm still in shock at the commercial performance for this album. It should be huge.

kitchen person, Friday, 17 November 2017 17:32 (three days ago) Permalink

I think the album is fine for what it is but a pretty poor use of this band and Hayley William's vast skill set. It definitely doesn't sound like it should be huge to me, the charts weren't really clamoring for a bunch of polyrhymic 80s throwbacks. Most of it just feels kinda silly and disposable to me; it doesn't have the heft or longevity of the three albums before it.

Evan R, Friday, 17 November 2017 17:50 (three days ago) Permalink

I'm still hoping there are a bunch of outtakes from these sessions that eventually see daylight. I respect that they opted to make a fairly tight record, but after the four year wait between albums this just feels slight and incomplete to me
