Overview

On their debut, Paramore still hadn't fully found themselves. The early-2000s pop-punk boom was over and the offspring of that ilk was taking over the scene. My Chemical Romance corralled the Hot Topic crowd that might have been into Marilyn Manson a decade earlier, while Fall Out Boy filled the niche vacated by a waning blink-182 and an evolved Green Day. Fortuitously, Paramore could slide in as one of the few female-fronted acts on the Warped scene. All We Know Is Falling (Fueled by Ramen) is formulaic in its pop-punk-ness: head-bobbing drums, straightforward riffs, and a midtempo sameness throughout ("Conspiracy," "Brighter," "Franklin"). Expertly executed and totally befitting its time, it was alright, but it just existed as an adept collection of straightforward rockers without much differentiation, excitement, or the brightness that would be found on later albums. The Farro brothers -- at the time, the core foils to fiery vocalist Hayley Williams -- provided ample muscle, especially on single "Emergency" and the driving "Never Let This Go." Some hints of the expert hooks that they'd craft on follow-up Riot! shimmered through on "Pressure" and "Here We Go Again." However, the fun, ferocity, and polish from that sophomore success (which, in turn, lifted this debut from relative obscurity and helped it hit gold) were just a glimmer in the band's eyes. This is a heavier, darker, and angstier affair, which has helped it stay relevant for fans who may not be as enthusiastic about their evolution into poppier, Grammy-winning territory. Listening closely, hints of future glory can be heard here. If Paramore had only released this album, they might have been lost in the shuffle of the times. Thankfully, they continued to evolve. ~ Neil Z. Yeung

To Jim John, I'm sorry you think &quot girl rock&quot is a disappointment. On the contrary: It isn't girl rock, and it's amazing. Hayley's vocals are incredible, and the bands sychronization is impeccable. I highly recommend this album to everyone. No matter what you listen to, this album is sure to please.

For a band with all of its members under the age of twenty-one when this CD came out, this is complete proof that talent comes in all sizes and ages. Tracks such as My Heart, Pressure, Emergency, Franklin, and Conspiracy, will make you want to sing along, or maybe just relax and listen.

What the title says. They are amazingggg. Whoa is probably one of the best songs on there along with Franklin which is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Hayley's voice is flawless and she's just as good live. Zac is only 15 and is a beast on drums. Paramore is pretty sweeeet and they're definitely talented and addicting.

This is Paramore's very first album, and I absolutely love them. I am most definitely ordering this. I already own Riot! and Brand New Eyes. They are epic, and punk, and...WHEN WILL THEY BURY THE CASTLE?

Paramore will be big very soon. With a female vocalist, their sound is unique, but good enough to compete with their male counterparts like fall out boy and other emo groups. Pressure is my favorite, but all of their songs are good ones.

I started listening to Paramore way before they got tacked on with the Twilight madness. They are a severely talented band, and this first album of theirs remains my absolute favorite out of all of their releases. Hayley's vocals are strong, swelling, and emotional.. which speaks volumes about her talent because she's so young. The band writes enjoyable music that remains catchy and non-offending.

for once in a long time, there is a band out there with fast and catchy melodies, and one of the best vocalists i have heard in the longest time. Don't hesitate to buy this, they can only get better and thats a really good thing.

I saw the music video for Pressure on Fuse (io channel 56, keep up why don'tcha) and absolutely fell in love with Paramore. Today, after seeing the video for emergency, i am completely convinced that Paramore will win over the entire non-crappy music industry
