Feeling a little weary at the prospect of reviewing a Paramore album due to a deluge of similar sounding bands spilling forth out of the states, their fourth album to date is nothing but a welcome relief judging by initial impressions. After agreeing to continue as a three piece due to various reasons and without doubt hinted at in the slightly quirky ‘Moving On’ with its ‘Well I could be angry but you’re not worth the fight’, this Nashville-based band has produced a string of hook-laden tracks that compel from the off. It is the – and dare I say it – maturity in the songwriting which really comes to the fore here, and in the process creating a succession of standout songs such as the climax building ‘Daydreaming’; aptly titled and lovely pop feel of ‘Grow Up’; ‘Ain’t It Fun’ with its choir interlude to more familiar territory with ‘Part II’. On this current form, Paramore is the perfect example of a band, if given enough time, steadily working towards their creative peak. Bearing this in mind, album number five promises to be something special.
