Paramore Pay A Visit To Diaryland On "Monster"
"Monster" is the first fully fleshed track from the outfit Paramore to come out since two of its members left in a huff of authenticity late last year, although the band's most defining aspectthe wail of flame-haired frontwoman Hayley Williamsis still intact. The song, which will appear on the soundtrack to the next Transformers monstrosity, sounds a little bit more introverted than the band's earlier material, with delicate filigrees of guitar and floating-in-space Williams clones providing breathy "oh-oh-oh"s here and there; call it the rainy-day-journal-scribbling flipside to the chunkier, and also movie-tied, "Decode."
