Not Great as a Whole
Posted August 12, 2010
By sadie_hawkins94,


No one can deny that Hayley Williams (Paramore's lead singer) has talent. Her voice is amazing and she just rocks out on stage.

The band has a knack for writing catchy tunes. Most of their songs are (musically) very well written. I love their style and the tune of nearly every song.

Unfortunately, somtimes b/c their music is so good, you don't pay attention to the lyrics. Most of their songs are fine but they do the occasional bad lyric. On "Careful" Hayley sings, several times, "the truth never set me free so I'll do it myself". She claims to be a Christian, so she should know that Christ (the truth!) saves us. We can't free ourselves. Also, "The Only Exception" talks about how love never lasts and it always fails and it doesn't exist. I know most marriages today don't last, and most relationships aren't centered around true love, but some people do have it. It's very hard to have true love (romantic or not) but it does exist.

There are good songs though. "Ignorance" and "Playing God" are about those who are too concerned about judging other people to realize they're not so holy themselves. The realization that we must go through hard times to get better is made in "Turn it Off". In "Brick by Boring Brick", a girl's childish dreams are crushed when she realizes this world isn't perfect. When we live in our fantasies, we our centered on ourselves and not on how life really is and how we can help make it better.

So this is a decent CD. But I wouldn't suggest buying the whole thing, just a few songs.
