Sound — 10
From listening to Paramore for 2 years I have noticed a big change from their first album, All We Know is Falling to their new album, Riot! This album has a different sound to it compared to the debut album. The guitar parts in each song are a little different than the song before. Paramore spent the past 7 months working on this project and I feel that they did a great job.

The lyrics have a lot stronger of a message in this album compared to AWKIF. They seem to be even more personal which seems hard to imagine since Hayley Williams, their lead singer, has never had problems with making her lyrics personal. Her singing is a lot stronger and much more controlled in ths paticular album and it gives a good impression from the first moment you hear it.
Overall Impression — 9
As I said previosly it has a different feel than their debut album and I wouldn't mind listening to it a few times in a row. Personally, I think the lyrics in We Are Broken are the most powerful. The remake of their song Hallelujah can really turn heads with its more prominent guitar parts and small amounts of techno. The album, in short, is much better than their first, which is saying something. I would deffinetly buy it again if I were to lose it.(And that would really be a tragedy).
