Thoughts

I was looking forward to this, as I love the creativity of Hayley and previously Paramore. It was clearly a well thought out project with the three sections of five songs each coming together to make a full body of work. And you can feel the heart and soul that’s gone into it as well.

I’ll admit it wasn’t all for me. There are these slightly odd twists and turns that have elements of pop jazz in there, and I’m not a big jazz fan. But on the flip side, some of the songs are so brilliant and so catchy, it certainly makes it worth listening to. Dead Horse was fantastic, and Simmer as a lead single is great. I’m not sure this will be a classic in my collection but I enjoyed it anyway.

Rating: 3 / 5
