This is the second studio album from indie-pop band Fun, featuring the hit single "We Are Young".
Debut album Aim and Ignite made minor ripples in the States for NYC-based trio fun., but with behemoth single We Are Young leading the charge (the first rock song to top the Billboard 100 in almost four years, let alone clock up six weeks there), it’s pretty much a given that second album Some Nights will go several steps further.
The way We Are Young defies convention, playing with tempo and employing Janelle Monáe on backing vocals, insinuates the makings of a game-changer. And while the track remains Some Nights’ greatest offering, there’s plenty on this new set to snap at its heels.
It’s an immensely stylised record, the collaboration between fun. and hip hop producer Jeff Bhasker in full view throughout: striking, emotive, all-American radio-indie laced with tricky urban beats. With that as a foundation, the experiments come thick and fast.
The brooding ballroom emo of the eponymous intro track gives way to audio of news reports, bursts of opera and horror movie shrieks. Frankly, it sounds like someone indiscriminately thumping a soundboard. But, miraculously, it works. Just as the discordant parps of One Foot works, and Carry On’s bizarre juxtaposition of traditional Irish folk ditty and ambitious Spinal Tap noodling works.
Not that Some Nights is flawless. Nestled amongst the grand ideas are a couple of comparatively watery offerings: Why Am I the One, for instance, is an overt and gooey nod to Crosby, Stills & Nash. But even then the surprises keep coming, the track mutating into an ocean of fizzing bleeps in its closing stages.
So while fun. offer a portion of cheese, somehow they’re simultaneously almost Queen-esque in their bold, dramatic tones. The whole album, while instantaneous, is a mystery. What should feel like gimmicks give Some Nights a distinct individuality.
It’s camp, but it’s shadowy. It’s epic, but it’s introvert. It’s highly peculiar, yet hugely commercial. It’s one big, beautiful oxymoron. And, in keeping with that theme, fun. will attract as many hecklers as they will fans. But, if history has taught us anything, that’s often the mark of something rather special.

Top Customer Reviews
Of the 11 tracks on the album, 8-9 are really good, of those 6 are outstanding.
The music is really "alive" and great to drive to.
The tracks "some nights", "all alone", "all alright", "why am I the one" are all as good as the single "we are young".
I am in my mid 50s and found the album really fresh and clever, with great lyrics and strong rhythm and drums.
DEFINITELY worth buying!
The second time i really listened to the lyrical content and what these clever little fellows have done is put really indepth often sometimes quite melancholy lyrics to an upbeat track with an array of music accompaiment, and so creating sheer brilliant ambivalance.
This album really grows on you. Everyones going to have a favorite one or 2 or 3. It would be really easy to just get carried away by the music and choruses, but each songs lyrical content is so well scripted from "ive got enough on my mind, that when she pulls me by the hair, she aint got much to hold on to," taken from Why Am I The One.
My favorite is Stars, its starts upbeat then slides into a slow beat song mellow song, "you, you're always holding on to stars, i think there better from afar because no one here's gonna save us, Oh and me..I am fading in the dark, so don't you wish on me why cant you see that no ones gonna save us" On this track and Its Alright, another favorite of mine the chorus has the backing singing of children brought into it with gives the songs an innocent like quality. This group has really thought about how to deliver such meaningful content subtlely disguised by the sublime musical arrangement. It really is quite clever, sheer artistry. So glad this mostly unknown group is now getting the recognition they deserve, i look forward to seeing them live when they decide to tour in this country. Because they put just as much entertainment into there live performances as they do their videos i'm sure it will be great.
