Paramore – “Riot!”


Yesterday, a friend of mine gave me a CD to listen to, so I thought I’d write a formal review of some sort. “Riot!” by Paramore is an 11 track album, of the rock/punk/pop genre, by Fueled By Ramen, an independent label.

I gave the album a few spins, and found that after the songs started to unblend, was experience was pretty good. The songs for the most part have a nice driving riff, and fairly generic “girl-hates-boy/world/whatever” lyrics, although have some gems of lines scattered throughout. The female’s vocals are pleasant, and sort of gruff on the chorus, which works well for the whole album image. Overall, the quality of the music itself is nice, but unexceptional. This is mood music, meaning that if you’re in the mood to kind of, you know, jump around, and unwind this is very nice. Medium-high music/lyrics/vocals, but the beat is addictive. 4 stars.

Tracks of notice: “Misery Business”, “Crushcrushcrush”

    Eww! I hope that’s 4 stars out of 10. Singer is hot though.

    Check out The Coathangers, Mika Miko, Be Your Own Pet, Comanechi, Bikini Kill, the Deathset, and a shitload of KRS bands (Sleater-Kinney and Bratmobile among many others) for similar music that doesn’t suck 🙂

    PS. WordPress doesn’t take sage as a field! lol

    Haha, I knew right when I saw “Anon” in the name field, I’d be dealing with some sort of /b/tard. Anyhow, be nice, Caturday is upon us. I think the band deserves the solid 4 for the sheer appeal-to-everyone quality of the music. I’ll give your suggestions a try though, thanks for those 🙂

    I expected you 😛
    P.S. Sagebombing doesn’t even work where it should at the moment.

    Great album.
