Biography

Iggy Pop was wrong. There is, in fact, fun.

Fun is what happens when three extraordinarily talented musicians come together to create something altogether new and wonderful. Nate Ruess, late of The Format, has teamed up with ex-Anathallo multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost and Steel Train’s Jack Antonoff, resulting in their ingenious debut, “AIM AND IGNITE.” The trio ...

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pardon the pun, but this album is fun. 31 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
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.

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..."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album 25 May 2012
By Ed
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really is fun! 28 July 2012
By Jelen
Format:Audio CD
Like probably most people, the first song that I heard from Fun was "We Are Young". And I was hooked. This album was a must-have for me.

Besides "We Are Young", the band is at its best on tracks like "Some Nights", "Carry On" and "Why Am I the One". Those are my favorites from this album and in my opinion; those are the tracks that sum up the original sound of Fun. The rest of the tracks don't stand out as much, though they are also good songs.

This band is a bit hard to label. There seems to be a bit of this and that - and it sounds really, really good!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just one popular song 16 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars All good, apart from the auto tune 23 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonkers but amazing 10 Oct 2012
By Cundykj
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Totally awesome. Love it. I bought it on the back of the Some Nights song as I really liked it but I genuinely love every track. The opening song in particular is mad, but is beautifully arranged. There is some bad language which isn't great if you have kids listening.
