I used to listen to a lot of Paramore, and then I stopped, for no real reason at all. And then their new album, Paramore, came out, with “Ain’t it Fun”.
Frankly, the entire album is pretty good, but “Ain’t it Fun” has a particular catchiness that makes me want to listen to it over and over again.
However this album has something notable about it, well, at least that a lot of people have been pointing out. It doesn’t sound like the “Old Paramore”.
For example, here’s one of my favourite songs by them, “Stop This Song”:
It’s really pop-punk-rock, right? And it sounds different from “Ain’t it Fun”.
But I don’t get what everyone is complaining about. If their music stayed pop-punk-rockish, then everyone would complain how all their music sounds the same, like Nickelback. And for how the music’s changed, it’s still good music.
In the end, I don’t think people will ever be satisfied. But “Ain’t it Fun” is certainly satisfying, and yes, fun to listen to.
