If most bands lost two of their founding members and one of their key songwriters, they'd be left floundering and desperately trying to recreate past glories. Not Paramore.
Treating this record as a total clean slate, this is an accomplished, varied and consistently brilliant record from start to finish.
From the anthemic bangers like 'Now' and 'Still Into You', to the angry biting 'Anklebiters' and 'Grow Up' to the downright odd gospel-tinged 'Ain't It Fun', this album twists, turns and enthralls with each and every step.
Back from the brink, Paramore sound bigger, stronger and better than ever.
