On their incredibly polished debut, it's obvious that someone has done Williams wrong, but the well-trained boys in her band seem to realize that these vaguely emo, but mostly mall-punk tracks are better off recalling what you might've heard had you just dropped the attitude and accepted the fact that the last Avril Lavigne disc totally ruled.

This is a heavier, darker, and angstier affair, which has helped it stay relevant for fans who may not be as enthusiastic about their evolution into poppier, Grammy-winning territory.
Paramore are for the kids who think Pink is not cool enough but My Chemical Romance are too scary, they want to rebel but they have to be in by 9 o’ clock. Paramore are not terrible; they are simply a transitional band.
I dig a lot of Paramore's newer material, so I decided to check out their earlier stuff in preparation for Hayley Williams' new solo album. Their debut is... okay. It definitely showcases Hayley's vocal talents at just 16 years old and some of the guitar hooks are pretty sticky, but "All We Know is Falling" suffers "2000's pop punk syndrome". The lyrics aren't as strong as they are on newer albums, resorting to "body empty, no soul" cliches. It also has those emo ... read more
ouch this kinda hurted.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I live for Paramore, I am indeed their little bitch
But AWKIF is uh haha oh noooooo
I mean, they were like 16/17 so it's forgivable but still it's got some wince-worthy moments especially that screaming/growling whatever the hell that was in My Heart oh boy. And the fact that I know it's their now main guitarist before puberty who, you know, wrote all the instrumentals on self-titled and After Laughter. ANYWAYS bye
BAND BINGE: Paramore
Part 1/5

For high schoolers, this album is pretty good.

In 2005, All We Know Is Falling was released. It introduced the world to a rock band that would become mainstream in just a couple years. The group of teenagers took the world by storm as they broke onto the rock scene with their juvenile lyricism and no-fucks attitude, despite being such a young band. This album prefaced the meteoric rise of one of rock’s most beloved bands, Paramore. With Hayley Williams, ... read more
Paramore debut with a sound that fits the mid 2000 scene to a fault, a scene that was heavily established by the record company overseeing this debut Fueled by Ramen who essentially were the label to end all labels for the punk pop genre during this time. Fueled by Ramen were so integral to the growth of pop punk and emo music in this time period, so for them to pick up the young Paramore should have been an immediate sign that the act would be featured in Alternative Press articles and ... read more
What can I say? I’m a sucker for Paramore. A lot of people seem to be complaining about the screaming implemented into My Heart, and while I’m no fan of screamo, I actually thought this part was done quite well, because of the emotion it brings across. However, I’m really glad they decided to leave the screaming out of Emergency for the actual album release, because that song does so much better without it. The main problem I have with this album is Whoa. I just can’t ... read more
