So Paramore's next single is titled Ain't It Fun, and I am a little surprised. Well, apart from this track, the next that I could probably predict would be Fast In My Car. But that track doesn't up the hype it does with Ain't It Fun as I felt it did. It's the management that decides it, and I have to say I'm okay with the track.
Ain't It Fun has an amazing intro, as Hayley jives into it. However, all it really has is an overlapping guitar loop ringing around the center of a monotonous beat. The track doesn't really bring any 'Paramore moments' that I felt really could boost the score so much higher. I have to say this though, the track really delivers an amazing way to decide with of either being a fun single or a serious single about talking to someone of the problems of the real world. That could probably be because of the gang vocals on the bridge that really just increases the score by so, so so much. The intensity is however, maintained and composed and doesn't really improve at the same time.
Ain't It Fun also is not as catchy, but it is still an average work that doesn't quite really live up to expectations. Despite some minor bad judgments, the song still is consistent and I feel that it isn't really the standards Paramore have set for themselves in their past albums. Still Into You was fun and at times love-ling, but Ain't It Fun is a totally different song.
The lyrics revolves around talking about a guy who is thrust into this open world of real mess, where he needs to know what's going on and he's really on his own now. Still, I'm not really into it yet as much as I'd really say, but I'm going to give it a couple more listens.
Ain't it fun
ORIGINALITY: 7/10 - They are running low on creativity, no doubt and Ain't It Fun doesn't 'up' it enough.
SOUND: 7/10 - From a couple of gang vocals that is just crazy and engaging, the rest just ties it around and doesn't really feel enough.
LYRICS: 7/10 - Ain't It Fun has laced lyrics, but pale in comparison to the other tracks.
OVERALL: 21/30 - Ain't It Fun features good vocals from Hayley, but had it been more innovative, the bars would have definitely been much more higher. I'd add it on my playlist, and I'm eager to hear your opinion.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
