I'm kind of disappointed with the direction they're taking.

Very Maroon 5-esque of them.

I'm a little worried as well based on this. Not that it's terrible, but just somewhat worried. 

 

That said, if their last album is indicative at all of this one, there should be quite a variety of sound/styles mixed throughout the tracks. Even s/t had upbeat poppy/pop-rock tunes (ex. Fast In My Car, Still Into You) along with some acoustic numbers (see all the Interludes) as well as typical Paramore burners (Now, Proof, Part II) Not to mention a great closer in Future. 

 

So I'm still holding out hope

I'm into it.

 

it's funny, it took me a long time to get into the s/t. I think I listened to it 5-6 times right when it came out and wasn't feeling it. About a month later I went back and it really clicked with me. I really appreciated that the direction was a little different. If every album sounded like AWKIF or Riot, it would stop being interesting. (imo)

Listened all the way through this album 2 times now. Can't say I hate it, but also can't say I'm in love with it. I probably had high hopes for something more along the lines of self-titled-esque  songs. Especially since Zac is back I expected him to want to beat the crap of the drums again, but hey, I understand wanting to try something new. 

 

That said, if you through all pre-conceptions and expectations out the window, the album is super catchy. I think I could listen to Hayley sign anything. 7/10 for me.
