I'm a big fan of the alt-pop-rock scene of the mid-2000s, so imagine my excitement when both Fall Out Boy and Paramore came out with new albums within the same month! This was one of the albums that I just had to buy in a hard copy; there's just something about being able to physically hold it in my hand. Now, I like a majority of the songs (as usual from them), mostly the ukulele-tinged interludes and the faster guitar-driven pop songs. The slow songs, I admit... kind of make me skip to the next song. Even if I like the lyrics (which I do), I need a song to make me want to get up and dance for me to get into it. But overall, the album more than makes up for this with the creative songwriting and who I think has the strongest female voice in pop, Hayley Williams. As for any content to be concerned about... there isn't, really. "Grow Up" (one of my favorites) says "I told 'em all where to stick it" and "(One of Those) Crazy Girls" makes a reference to sleeping with a guy in order to get him to stay in the relationship, but in the context of the song, it's clear that this is really unhealthy (it's an over-the-top portrayal of someone who confuses stalking with love). Also, in "I'm Not Angry Anymore," there's a reference, that not really violent per say, is not pleasant imagery (I'll rot your teeth down to their core/if I'm really happy). Other than that, it's all positive messages about getting back up when you get knocked down, and two cute (and genuine) love songs, "Still Into You" and "Proof" (some more of my faves). If you're a Paramore fan, I recommend getting the album in full, if you're just getting in to them, I'd recommend checking out the singles on iTunes to get a feeling for it first, since the musical stylings are all over the map here.
