i guess ilan rubin might be a better drummer technically than farro but farro's work has a pretty specific personality that i missed on the s/t initially. his fills on "ignorance" are wild imo

also idk what happened but his playing generally leveled-up on brand new eyes in every way imo, all of those drum tracks are furious

yeah, his drumming helps make that record, along with that big overblown production that for some reason I hated on every other '00s rock record except that one

I don't think they'd cover up the end of a romantic relationship by saying really mean things about how Hayley ran and controlled the band (and also how unchristian she was) so I doubt that's why they left the band.

oh yeah i'm realllly abbreviating history there but idk i think a huge reason they left is that literally every lyric on brand new eyes is kinda like "fuck u josh"

also from what i remember about it at the time the farro bros "we're leaving the band" letter was super like... terrible bad faith shit

tbh maybe my idea of why they left was baseless speculation at the time and i've just carried that in my head for so long that i thought it was true so nm

I didn't follow the personal drama b/c I'm too old and indifferent but the fact they made their best album without those dudes has gotta burn a little. Paramore was good precisely because it was the kind of record they probably couldn't have made with two devout Warped Tour loyalists in the band

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:08 (one year ago) Permalink

Reminds me--on a much, much larger scale--of what happened with Q and Not U back in the day. They were a good band, then they dumped their bassist and made a big show of how they'd dumped their bassist and it really seemed to energize them and open the door to all sorts of new possibilities. This was like that but on more of a Fleetwood Mac scale

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:10 (one year ago) Permalink

xp I think the lyrics point to that intimate conflict and also more generally about the tension in the band, sometimes specifically so ("I can't believe we almost hung it up", and then some of them did, but the album pretends they can move on as long as the last jabs are hers (re 'fuck u josh' and maybe 'fuck you zac and, jeremy, and i'm not so great either (but taylor seems like he's always been the nice guy))

Echoing the love for Farro's BNE drums and hope there's some aggression on the new album to make use of them

yeah this is a more accurate portrait of what's going on in that record

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:14 (one year ago) Permalink

The way she prods at and questions her faith in the band and Faith in general on BNE in a really aggressive way, like some hurt T Rex, over these machine gun drums and pop punk emo makes it one of my favorite _pop_ albums in general, so full of drama.

abcfsk, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:15 (one year ago) Permalink

Yeah it's funny how the ostensibly very positive lyrics on "Looking Up" - at least when appearing on the same album as "Ignorance" and "Playing God" and "Feeling Sorry" - can come off as really patronising and dismissive.

Evan R, Friday, 17 November 2017 17:21 (three months ago) Permalink

Fake Happy is my favourite song on the album. Hope it can do an Ain't It Fun and give them a slow burning hit single. I'm still in shock at the commercial performance for this album. It should be huge.

kitchen person, Friday, 17 November 2017 17:32 (three months ago) Permalink

I think the album is fine for what it is but a pretty poor use of this band and Hayley William's vast skill set. It definitely doesn't sound like it should be huge to me, the charts weren't really clamoring for a bunch of polyrhymic 80s throwbacks. Most of it just feels kinda silly and disposable to me; it doesn't have the heft or longevity of the three albums before it.

Evan R, Friday, 17 November 2017 17:50 (three months ago) Permalink

I'm still hoping there are a bunch of outtakes from these sessions that eventually see daylight. I respect that they opted to make a fairly tight record, but after the four year wait between albums this just feels slight and incomplete to me

it's a good album but was under-promoted and feels more like their indie album than their pop album so the performance isn't surprising

It could been promoted 24 hours a day in 2017 and it wouldn't have made a difference. These songs don't fit formats.

I was bummed they didn't do "Now." "Fake Happy" and "Ain't it Fun" killed though

New Hayley interview! This podcast focuses on beauty/makeup and Hayley's on there to promote her latest GoodDyeYoung product, but she talks a lot of Paramore as well.. About halfway through they get DEEP into skincare products which I found interesting but is alien territory for me so I haven't finished the ep yet. But she has a good rapport with the interviewer. The conversation feels honest and open and friendly and not very press junket-ish, which some of the other AL-cycle interviews suffer from.

I have no idea if people actually listen to this band. Was this album a hit? A flop? Have they toured behind it? Just festivals? Clearly they are still releasing singles.

it was a flop, they have toured and are touring behind it

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 20:40 (two weeks ago) Permalink

And yet, pretty sure they never hit Chicago! I mean, they might have been at Riot Fest? But I was shocked they never played a standalone show here, if that was it.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 20:42 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Seems like it was a flop in the Melodrama sense, where maybe it underperformed a bit commercially but it was also enormously well-received and probably cemented their fanbase for many, many years to come.

Saw their winter show (sold out, I think) and the good will for the band was just through the roof.

Evan R, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 21:02 (two weeks ago) Permalink

yeah i was less worried about their health as a band after seeing them on this tour (at a sold out radio city). i think after "still into you" and "ain't it fun" were big pop hits that really leaning hard into that direction made sense... but given how hard it is for any rock band to get consistent traction in pop i'm also not surprised it didn't catch. will be interesting to see where they go next having given this route their best effort.
