Brand New Eyes is an album I always underrate, until I listen to it and then I wonder how on earth it’s not my favourite Paramore album.
I think that this was pretty much the only CD I had in my car for the first 6 months after it came out, and I just listened to it over and over again. Perhaps I listened to it to death and that’s why I tend to underrate it. I’m my own worst enemy sometimes.
My favourite memory of this album was when Paramore played Birmingham with You Me At Six as support. I think it was one of the first gigs Tom and I went to together, and it was such a good show. I believe that tour was the first time Paramore played arenas in the UK and I couldn’t help but feel a little proud of them, after seeing them tour Riot! in a much smaller venue a couple of years earlier.
To be honest, I could list every song on the album under here and it took a fair bit of deliberation to narrow it down to just four songs. (Luckily for you, you can listen to the entire album either on Spotify or YouTube.)
- Playing God
- The Only Exception – though my favourite version of this song is the live acoustic version.
- Misguided Ghosts
