The Popdust Files: paramore, track-by-track reviews

This week, Paramore’s self-titled fourth album comes out, and Popdust is here to help you sort through its 17 tracks. Hayley Williams and her bandmates try on a bunch of new styles, from new wave to pop-funk—and Williams even busts out the uke for a couple of confessional interludes. How is it? Quite good, as a matter of fact—their new pop bent suits Williams’ spitfire nature perfectly, and even the record’s sadder moments sing.

An upbeat, scream-along return to Paramore’s emo-punk roots. The best part? It’s an affirmation to please nobody but yourself! Perfect for psyching yourself up before leaving the house for a nerve-wracking night on the town.
Popdust Says: 4/5
