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 (four 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 (four 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 (four 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

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:14 (four months ago) Permalink

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 (four 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.

"Caught in the Middle" and "26" are the only ones that still haven't unbuttoned their shirts for me.

Caught in the Middle feels like a No Doubt album cut. While I like the idea of Paramore going ska, I wish there was more of a chorus. 26 is amazing though! At first I didn't think it lived up to Hate to See Your Heartbreak for me, as far as Paramore country attempts go, but sonically, it really feels like a lost Taylor Swift ballad circa Fearless or Speak Now.

Let the record reflect that I was OTM about "Grudges" upthread.

I think of "26" as a sequel to "Misguided Ghosts", which is one of the three ~perfect songs~ on Brand New Eyes.

But yeah there is something kinda Taylor about it.

Can we discuss how beautifully -- how intricately -- York layers those guitar parts on "Told You So"? At least three riffs, each playing something different, and Williams has a melody line for'em all. The thing is like a cuckoo clock.
