Paramore is a pop rock band which is taking the world by storm with their catchy hits! I am a big fan and hope to see them play live in concert in the future. Here is a review of the latest album Brand New Eyes.

The band is from Franklin, Tennessee USA. Hayley Williams is the lead singer with the rest of the group made up of brothers Josh & Zak Farro, Jeremy Davis & Taylor York. Paramore has become very popular through the album Riot! As well as featuring songs from the hit soundtrack Twilight.

What really makes up the goodness of this band is they are devoted to updating the fans with social networking media and the official website. They are constantly touring across the world. They have also won 9 music awards with their effort!
Brand New Eyes has been highly anticipated by Paramore fans worldwide. It is arguably the best release from this up and coming band. The Album charted #1 in New Zealand & Australia. I have no doubt that they will be playing down under in the not too distant future.
The album kicks off with the track Careful which sets the pace for the album nicely. Every Paramore album kicks off with a sing along gem! (which is important for any artist) You can certainly tell that the band have put a lot of effort into progressing their sound.
Ignorance is the lead single off the album which has an interesting music video of the band in the dark around a light. It is a heavy sounding track which is all about dancing & having fun to the music.
Brick by Boring Brick is the new single as well as being the true star of this album. It is a stadium anthem song with the boys backing up the Hayley’s vocals. All I can say is “Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba da!”
The album also features beautiful moments with the achingly sweet The Only Exception. The classic rock songs of All I Wanted, Playing God & Turn it off really shine as well. Overall I would recommend this album to the fans as a must. Also people who like Avril Lavigne, Tegan & Sara, Katy Perry, Fall out Boy or Panic at the Disco should like Brand New Eyes.
The International edition of Brand New Eyes also features Decode (from the Twilight Soundtrack) as a bonus track. This song became a huge hit for the band which is also one of my favourite Paramore songs.
Again what I feel is the biggest draw card to this band is the amount of hard work these young adults have put into this group through merchandise, multimedia & the strength of their awesome live shows with great supporting bands as testimony to the success!
Paramore will be around for many years to come and should get all the recognition they deserve. I give Brand New Eyes 8/10.
