The Paramour Sessions: Deluxe Edition [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Having long ago dumped the tired rap-rock format of their early work, Papa Roach continues attempting to reinvent the hard rock wheel on 2006's The Paramour Sessions. Unfortunately, while the band seems to be aiming for Mötley Crüe's Theatre of Pain, the results sound something more akin to a nu-metal version of Loverboy's Keep It Up. These are boisterous, brash, and in-yo-face tracks that really want to convince you they have the goods. And sure, the band does evince a kind of Technicolor, Sunset Strip club, cocaine-line-on-a-Marshall-stack vibe, but mostly the songs just ain't there. Admittedly, "The World Around You" has a catchy chorus and "Time Is Running Out" is a ...

Admittedly, "The World Around You" has a catchy chorus and "Time Is Running Out" is a suitably anthemic pop tune. However, while Papa Roach makes a lot of gestures toward rock & roll suicide on The Paramour Sessions, the album ends up being a lot like lead singer Jacoby Shaddix's confession of "I've got a jet black heart, it's all f*cked up and it's falling apart" on ."..To Be Loved." It sounds a lot cooler than it actually is.

    AMAZING album!!

    so ive always thought papa roach has been an amazing band, but when you look at the progression theyve made from infest to the paramour sessions its crazy. this cd showcases every member's talents, and doesnt jsut have one good song but many. "..to be loved" kicks it off, and as the first single is a great example of what the cd and band are all about: good old rock n roll. it has its fair share of ballads, frmo "what do you do?" to "roses on my grave", and each song tells a story. the album seems to me like it could be made into a play, because it drags you in with the lyrics and music to back it up. all in all, its just an awesome dose of hard rock.

    Best Yet

    Personally my favorite Papa Roach album. The songs on this album are emotionally charged and make you move. ..To be Loved, Alive, I Devise my Own Demise, and Crash make you move while My Heart is a Fist, Roses on My Grave, and Time is Running Out are more emotional. My favorite on the album is Roses on my Grave with it's mix of orchestra music and intensity. I can't listen to this CD without singing along with everything I have.

    Another great CD

    I bought this two days after it came out, and i was pleased to hear that no rapping was involved. The only good rapping Papa Roach had was on Last Resort, which is a hella-tight song. To Be Loved... is a great song, as is Reckless. Overall, this is a great CD and definitely worth buying if you have the money!!!

    Papa roach 2nd best record

    I like the first 4 songs since they are very catchy but there are other ones (the slow songs ) that aren't that great. But that's just me....I think over all it's a cool album

    Ok,

    Alright. So this cd was half ok. A couple of the songs are really catchy, but then most of them are really dissapointing. Not to mention the lead singer is not good at singing soft songs.
