Album Review Paramore - This is Why5 Stars
Their most ambitious album yet.
Paramore are no strangers to evolution. While the first half of their career so far was built on a foundation of punky pop-imbued anthems, with their fourth, self-titled album they began to push against the boundaries and labels once placed upon them. The sprawling seventeen-track record would mark the first chapter in their metamorphosis - and win them a GRAMMY in the process - before 2017’s ‘After Laughter’ saw them shape-shift yet further, refining their funky prowess into one of the year’s best albums. And so, for anyone who thought that Paramore would confine themselves to that same space on their sixth, it’s time to think again. ‘This Is Why’ boasts another bold and brilliant transformation for the trio.
