instrumentally probably the most creative thing they've done. whatever studio drummer they've rassled up is fantastic.

eh. any qualms i had about paramore post-farro are put to rest, tbh

.....wow. Kinda impressive, sounds like there's a little Circa Survive influence in there too with the drumming and guitar lines.

The band is big enough that sufficient musicians were gonna put their hands up for those spots anyway. They wouldn't get muppets (maybe they should! would be awesome.)

Only the frontwoman would be irreplaceable. Song sounded alright.

Yes, Circa Survive, that's what it is. I couldn't figure out what it reminded me of. The influence is slight, but I think it's
there.

BTW for everyone talking about studio musicians... Taylor York played all guitars and drums for this. There are videos on youtube in studio. So, no studio musicians.

Song was great. Surprised with no farro

I assure you, they brought in outside songwriters (if they hadn't before to begin with). Paramore (and namely, Haley) have been groomed to be huge since the very very beginning -- and the label's not going to let that go down the drain just because two members left.

If they brought in outside help, the original author would have to be credited somewhere. The only people credited for any of their songs that I can think of are members of the band. Think about how little sense it would make for a label to fake the band growing as musicians and growing less radio friendly (for their standards of course) as they got more famous.

'If they brought in outside help, the original author would have to be credited somewhere.'

Not remotely true. 'Ghost' songwriters are frequently brought in to help popular rock bands, and are paid explicitly to receive no public credit. And do you really think this song is less radio-friendly than their past fare? I think it's right on par with their song that came out with Twilight.

You basicall ignored my point broseph. Basically what I'm saying is you have no reason to believe they didn't write the song. Their overall writing has matured greatly ever since their debut release. Is it really that hard for you to believe a popular band writes their own songs? Because there's really no reason to think otherwise.

The chorus is solid but the track is so half arsed.

Absolutely misses Zac's drumming. His style was all about mega powerful rim shots on a 14x8 snare, a 24" kick, lots of tom work and backbeat drops and clearly Taylor is a good drummer but hasn't been able to recreate or improve that great sound whatsoever.

I'm severly underwhelmed.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hayley wrote the drums and guitar. All the member can play guitar and drums.

Seriously this Circa Survive influence is barely there. Wow they played a few loose slash chords and wow their Circa Survive. I mean come on, the worst circa song is still better than every song paramore ever written.

Oh and Zac was a better drummer than this drumming by Taylor.

I like the song, it's extremely well constructed...

...but it left my head after not even 5 minutes. It's missing that defining hook that always made Paramore songs so stinking fun.

They're definitely going down the trail that Brand New Eyes blazed. We'll see how it goes...something still tells me Riot! was their peak though, unfortunately.

Hi. I just wanna thank you guys. I wanna be an author and Monster (and all your other songs, but especially Monster) really inspire me to keep writing and when I listen to it I just keep getting good ideas. I can honestly say that if I someday gets a real author, I can thank Paramore for inspire me and help me when I'm lost. You are a big part of my book and your music always makes me think about my life and how I should live it. Thank you

Song is great. They just might be getting past the whole good-because-it's-catchy-and-fun thing they've been doing for a while now, and actually become legit-ly good. I mean, BNE showed some signs of that, but this sounds really...mature.

Hayleys attractiveness lies more in her aesthetic appeal than raw sexual appeal. But some guys go for that type.
