I think it's a solid song, but I hope the whole album isn't like this. Ilan is the star of the track, the drum part is easily the best Paramore has ever done. Hayley's delivery is awesome too, and I like the guitar tones. I feel the same way about this song as I did about blink's Up All Night when that leaked. It's not at all what I was expecting and it's gonna take some time to really appreciate it.
Kind of a neat direction, but this song didn't quite do it for me. It feels as though it's missing something. Kinda got bored halfway through, hoped for a great bridge (which wound up being pretty underwhelming), and by the time the last chorus came, I was kind of just ready for it be over. I know they had a ton of time to write and record this album, but I really hope the length of the album itself doesn't result in 17 mediocre (in my opinion, of course) songs like this.
But hey, who's to say this won't grow on me? I've only listened to it three times so far.
Too funny...I wasn't exactly "anticipating" this song at all, but it seems like this song is getting a lot of hate from what I'm reading...and I actually really dig it. Was expecting something completely different...and I like what I'm hearing.
