    I don't understand why Feldmann agreed to remain unmentioned in the songwriting credits here.

    California Deluxe Album

    I'll be the 27 year old dude at the Neighborhoods 10-year reunion tour screaming Fighting The Gravity at the top of my lungs and jamming to Heart's All Gone Interlude

    After Laughter debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200, making it their third top 10 on the chart, with 67,000 album-equivalent units, of which 53,000 were pure album sales.[58] It also debuted within the top 10 of seven other countries including Australia, Austria, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland and the UK. California debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, moving 186,000 equivalent album units; it sold 172,000 copies in its first week, with the remainder of its unit total reflecting the album's streaming activity and track sales.[76] It marked the band's second number one album and first in over 15 years, when Take Off Your Pants and Jacket debuted at number one in 2001. It also knocked Drake's Views from the summit after having spent nine weeks at the top.[76] The album became the band's first to top the charts in the United Kingdom, selling 24,000 copies in its debut week.[77] The album also managed to reach higher chart positions worldwide than its predecessor Neighborhoods and outsold both its first-week and total sales in the US.[78] As of January 1, 2017, California has sold 408,000 units in the United States; making it the ninth best selling rock album of 2016.[79]

    This is the first Paramore album I liked. Their old records were pretty generic pop-punk for young audience, while this record channels new wave/80's vibe I really like. Some songs even remind me of Talking Heads, guitar/bass/drums work is smart and skillful. The whole record feels a lot more more genuine than their previous ones, and not trying to appeal to anyone - they do what they want. And as everyone can see the record is much less successful commercially then California and Paramore's previous records for that matter, but artistically it's definitely a winner. For anyone liking the record I would recommend checking some modern indie new wave revival bands: Porches, Neon Indian, Toro Y Moi and so on.

    That's the main problem of California - generic choruses

    California Deluxe Album

    Because it's not trash, but it's still basically forgettable. Don't expect anything special. Last Train Home is a good exception.

    I hope it's in vain of Hey I'm Sorry/Last Train Home

    Yes, this and Hey I'm Sorry are the hignlights for me. Now they only need to stop doing these copy-paste choruses.

    California Deluxe -- Reviews/First Impressions

    I'm not really impresed with DLX. Of course, some of the songs are better, LTH verses and bridge are good, but chorus is again the same "beloved" chords, in general this song is okay but I don't see me relistening to it a lot. GOD style is okay but the song is nothing special. All in all, I can't say I like or hate the album, I just don't have any feelings. It's nor better than Cali 1 no worse. What I'm sure of is that Neighborhoods is definitely better than both parts.
