Product Description

Product Description

Japanese edition includes one bonus track. Warner. 2009.

Ah, youth: the exuberance, the energy, the blistering highs and bottomless depths. It’s an ideal breeding ground for true rock & roll belief. Hence, the youngsters of Paramore unearth geysers of loud, sugary angst on Riot!, their major label debut and follow-up to 2005’s All We Know Is Falling. Small-town musicians who have played together for years, Paramore boasts the appeal of an emo-pop blast developed out of savvy songwriting and musicianship. The sweet spot the band hits--somewhere between Avril Lavigne and All-American Rejects--comes naturally. Lead singer Hayley Williams, barely 18, has big-time vocal depth and genuine charisma besides, and while her singing can sound a little contrived, she delivers with such end-of-the-world conviction that it’s an easy flaw to forgive. Bright and catchy melodies abound, but songs like “Misery Business” and “Miracle” also feature razor-sharp cadences and ultra-clean transitions. Too clean, actually. The production is crystal clear, which accentuates the stumbles (mostly on the ballads) and robs these whippersnappers of the messy highs they surely achieve playing live. But some things can’t be entirely glossed over, and while the more aged among us will sip our Scotch and make fun of their adolescent shenanigans, we’ll also be surreptitiously listening on our iPods after we put the kids to bed. --Matthew Cooke

Format: Audio CD
It is a difficult choice, but I would have to pick "Riot!" as the best of the first three albums from Paramore. "All We Know" is a strong debut, but it has some weaker points, and "Brand New Eyes" has several of what I feel are their best songs, but it doesn't maintain such a high-level of quality on all of its tracks. This is a very impressive album, all the more so when one considers that it is only their second. It was released on June 12, 2007.

"For a Pessimist I'm Pretty Optimistic" opens the album with a strong number, but not one which would be released as a single. As with most of the songs on this album it is fairly basic, but has a good driving feel to it. "That's What You Get" is the next piece and is one of the four singles from the album. This is followed by another single "Hallelujah" which is similar in lyric content, though this time instead of heading towards a break-up this one is about seeing things through and staying together. "Misery Business" is another of the singles from the album, and another song about relationships, though this one is about fighting over a man. "When it Rains" is another break-up song, but at least this one has a significantly different feel then those which came before.

"Let the Flames Begin" is the bridge song between the first and second half of the album. This one isn't a relationship song, but instead seems to be about finding oneself. "Miracle" moves back to the area of relationship pieces, and is probably the weakest song on the album, though that is not difficult given the quality of the rest of the tracks. "Crushcrushcrush" is the next piece and the remaining single from the album. This one rings in a different aspect to the other relationship songs on the album.

Out of all the Paramore albums, I think Riot! has to be my favourite. It's brimming with amazing tracks. To anyone who hasn't heard of Paramore, I'd probably tell them to start with this album, and check out the tracks "When It Rains", "Fences", "Born For This", "Misery Business" and "For A Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic."

Very well written, well produced record. The singles are there, the album tracks are good too. I have a feeling they'll never top this in their career.
