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..."

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.

Great - inventive - real breath of fresh air I am so pleased I found them!

I normally listen to The Smiths, David Bowie, Hall & Oates to give you an idea of what I am into! This is a proper band with very clever key/timing changes that creates a really rich album well worth trying.

First album is also great.
