She actually said, "It sounds nothing like them. I don't like the change, I want the old Paramore."
This got me thinking about bands who change and evolve their sound, just like writers switch genres or begin a new series. Personally, I think change is good. Could you imagine if Jennifer Armentrout wrote about nothing more than an alien named Daemon? No. Instead, I think the writing community is fascinated by her latest self-published release Wait for You, which she wrote using the pen name of J. Lynn.
Could you imagine if James Patterson only wrote stories about Alex Cross? We wouldn't have any of his YA series! That would be terrible!
Without change, we would have an over abundance of stories that were similar in nature and no new material. Taking new ideas and turning them into stories or music is just what creativity is. What do you think? Stay the same or change and evolve?
