AP also namEd Williams as "Best Vocalist of the Year," while the New York Times' Jon Caramanica placed "brand new eyes" on his 2009 Top 10, praising it for "choruses (that) roll up like tidal waves."
What's more, Spin counted "brand new eyes" among its "40 Best Albums of 2009," noting that Paramore have "entered the rarified world of rock that matters." Spin also named the opening night of "The Paramore Tour" as one of its "30 Biggest Concerts of 2009," calling it "an exhilarating and unifying moment for fans bent on making Williams their generation's Gwen Stefani."
Further honors rolled in, including Paramore being named "Favorite Rock Band" at the 2010 People's Choice Awards. "The Only Exception" received a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals" to go along with their previous Grammy Award nomination for "Best New Artist" in 2008.
