The Final Riot!

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
While the music industry struggled throughout 2007 and 2008, Paramore bucked expectations by sending four singles to the Hot Modern Rock charts and shipping over one million copies of Riot!. Newcomers like Katy Perry also dominated the radio, but Paramore was one of the only rock bands to emerge from the woodwork, going platinum during a time in which most artists were happy to go gold. The band also toured extensively, and The Final Riot! -- a slick, attractive live album that features video and audio footage -- captures one of Paramore's final performances in support of that album.

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
While the music industry struggled throughout 2007 and 2008, Paramore bucked expectations by sending four singles to the Hot Modern Rock charts and shipping over one million copies of Riot!. Newcomers like Katy Perry also dominated the radio, but Paramore was one of the only rock bands to emerge from the woodwork, going platinum during a time in which most artists were happy to go gold. The band also toured extensively, and The Final Riot! -- a slick, attractive live album that features video and audio footage -- captures one of Paramore's final performances in support of that album. Given Hayley Williams' voice and Zac Farro's powerful, muscled percussion, Paramore has always been a better live band than the bulk of its competitors, and The Final Riot! is stronger than similar releases by Fall Out Boy Live in Phoenix and Taking Back Sunday Louder Now: Part Two. That's not to say it's a perfect recording; the crowd noise is mixed much too low, which is problematic whenever Williams thrusts the microphone at the audience and invites them to sing along, and her occasional flat notes point to a lack of overdubs. That only serves to make The Final Riot! more genuine and Williams more human, though, and the tight set list featuring the bulk of Paramore's catalog, as well as a snippet of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" showcases both the band's prowess and the singer's road-seasoned voice. She's fantastic throughout, from her candid comments in the enclosed tour documentary 30 minutes long and well worth the view to her performance on-stage, where she howls with finesse and pint-sized power. Few vocalists can rival that talent, and watching Williams lay waste to the crowd is one of The Final Riot!'s many highlights.

    LOVE it!

    I'm in a band, so this DVD is DEFINITLEY essential! It's like you're on tour with Paramore, and not just watching from the crowd. (Which you DO do to!) It goes behind the scenes, with documentaring Paramore's life on the bus, rehearsals, and just being a rockstars. Super encouraging, and it makes you just want to grab your band, a few fans, and just rock the night away.

    One small(actually really obnoxious) problem

    DO NOT buy this CD if you absolutely love Paramore but dislike or even mildly dislike live recordings!If you were there at the Chicago preformance and want to think you hear yourself screaming with complete adoration for the alternative/punk band Paramore, congratulations to you. However, a warning to those buying this because it has so many tracks and a wonderful little DVD attached-this is a live recording (if you think this is repetitive, it is) and therefore, the sound quality and performance is pretty insignificant compared to the studio version.<BR/>However, buy this if you like being a die-hard, hard core fan of Paramore; I'm sure deep down in their hearts, they love you too.<BR/>On the note of the actual music, the sound quality is messed up due to the constant cheering and acoustics of the concert hall, but don't let that bother you- you'll be able to pick out the actual lyrics if you listen to it enough. Hayley Williams still has her soaring vocals and amazing power in her voice, everyone else in the band doesn't sound bad either. There are a few places in the album where the intro to a song is drawn out for the listening agony of the crowd, but luckily for you, the very dangerous and unpredictable Power of Fast Forward is at your mouse click. In colnclusion, this was great, except for the fact it was live-just buy the Riot! CD and all your Paramore cravings will be satisfied.

    THIS DVD IS AMAZING!!

    I loved this CD/DVD it was well worth my money and time. The band played wonderful and the lead singer's vocals were sometimes off, but great all the way through. All of the song's had you either want to get up and dance or just sit in your seat and listen to the lyrics and music. This band is one of my favorites. And most artists cannot play good live, but this band can. And also along with live performances you get a documentary about the band which gives insight on their daily lives and also gives info on their next album. Which is awsome! But overall this band is worth your time and money in my opinon, and by buying this DVD you'll also starting thinking the same way.
