Paramore: brand new eyes

Sound — 8
Brand New Eyes is Paramores most truthful album yet, after the band falling apart, this is how they rewired the band, Hayley says these lyrics are the most honest and meaningful yet. The sound of the album is great, it's sounds like them, but with a twist. Ignorance and looking up wouldn't sound like they would have been written in the same period of time, but they had. The bands sound was great, I love the new lyrics and guitar riffs and the bass lines too. Check out the album it was 9/10 for me so pretty good, I'd suggest to check it out!

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics on this album express alot of feelings from sadness to happiness. thelyrics work really well with the music they work on the same level. Hayleys voice is great, as good as eve, especially in "the only exception" The Only exception. {Verse 1} When I was younger I saw my daddy cry And curse at the wind He broke his own heart And I watched As he tried to reassemble it And my momma swore that She would never let herself forget And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love If it does not exist But darlin' {Chorus} You are the only exception You are the only exception You are the only exception You are the only exception {Verse 2} Maybe I know, somewhere Deep in my soul That love never lasts And we've got to find other ways To make it alone Or keep a straight face And I've always lived like this Keeping a comfortable, distance And up until now I had sworn to myself that I'm content With loneliness Because none of it was ever worth the risk {Chorus} You are the only exception You are the only exception You are the only exception You are the only exception {Instrumental and Drums} {Bridge} I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't Let go of what's in front of me here I know you're leaving in the morning, when you wake up Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream Ooh Ooh... {Chorus} You are the only exception You are the only exception You are the only exception You are the only exception [X2] And I'm on my way to believing Oh, and I'm on my way to believing

Overall Impression — 9
My overall I'm pression is it compares really well with the other albums prehaps better in the fact that it was written in such a bad time for the band and it was part of them getting back together. The most impressive songs on the album would have to be, the only exception, turn it off and looking up. I love the way the songs have a meaning like on onme song where it says " God knows the world doesn't need another band, but what a waste it would have been."

    I like this album A LOT. I think it's better than riot! If you say you don't like it, seriously, you haven't really listened to it. I love it. Every song of it. =D

    why do people compare flyleaf and paramore, just because they have girl singers? they sound nothing alike
