Product Description

Product Description

This is the second studio album from indie-pop band Fun, featuring the hit single "We Are Young".

BBC Review

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.

I purchased this album having heard an interview with the band on the radio one Saturday morning in April. The interviewer played 'We Are Young' - and I fell in love with it instantly. It offered something different to much of the current offerings from other bands, and musically it is a masterpiece. It is well-composed and vocally strong. I decided to take a gamble on the album - I loved the single so much, that I just had to pre-order it. Turns out to be one of the best albums I have ever bought. Instantly fell in love with the title track (the 'Some Nights Intro' is very clever) - with 'Some Nights' itself a very varied, powerful track. As one other reviewer has alluded to, if you like 'We Are Young', be prepared to be amazed! My favourite track has to be 'Why Am I The One', (I must have played it hundreds of times in the car!) - followed closely by 'Carry On' and 'I Feel So All Alone'. The only track I haven't played all the way through is 'It gets Better' - (perhaps I should play it through, it may indeed 'get better'! It just sounds a bit too 'Green-Day-ish' for my liking at this point). 'Stars' is another interesting track - It's different, and I like it, but I'm not too sure why! Every other track is simply amazing, and I can't get enough of this album. If you like 'We Are Young', you simply must buy this album! "Some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again... Some nights I always win... I always win..."

I can't remember the last time I was so excited about a cd or a band. I may be a bit older than the typical 20-something fan (okay, two decades older!) but thanks to these larger than life anthems and catchy tunes, I have been reborn into a giddy and squealing fan. I haven't felt like this in years. "Some Nights" is like a roller coaster ride. It will sweep you off your feet, take you by surprise and leave you holding on tight begging for more. All of the songs are catchy and upbeat - apart from "Stars" which is quite beautiful in its own way, hypnotising and surreal. I can safely say that there is not a bad track on this cd. I love them all and if you like "We Are Young", then watch out because that is just the tip of the iceberg. Tracks that especially stand out for me include the second single, "Some Nights", "Carry On", "Why Am I the One" and the bonus track,"Out On The Town". "Some Nights" is the perfect cd to kick-start your summer and a must have addition to your cd collection.

This is a brilliant album and instantly likeable. Most albums take me a few listens to get into, but this one is enjoyable from the first listen and for many listens after. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that there are a couple of dud songs on the album - one of which I have started skipping because it's really not good at all - but for the most part, this album is put together very well and the standard of most of the songs is very high indeed. If you think you might like fun's album after hearing We Are Young, you'd be right.

I bought this CD on the strength of the one track "We are young" but was pleasantly surprised to find I enjoyed all of the tracks. Be aware that there is one very clear swear word on the CD in case you have young children you would not want to hear such language. Other than that it is great.

Having seen the band on the Graham Norton show, i decided to listen to the album excerpts available on MP3 sites.

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!

I love the way this album starts - really shows the personality of the band. The songs are very catchy, but not pop shallow. The only problem with it is the auto tune. I don't know if it's supposed to be a bit of 'fun', but I think it ruins two of the songs. Still, if you skip over those parts, the rest of the album is a blinder. Great to find new (to me) music.

This album is not quite like any other ive heard before. I bought the album because i absolutely loved the song We Are Young. first time of listening i let it play all the way through. For me its a kind of cross between Queen and Indie music. It is most odd.

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.
