2012 sophomore album from the New York-based Indie Alt-Rock band. Having earned widespread acclaim with their 2009 debut album, Aim & Ignite, fun. decided to raise the stakes with this album by teaming with noted producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Drake). The first single, 'We Are Young' (featuring Janelle Mon e), has generated quite a buzz while USA Today applauded the "baroque indie-popsters" for "(making) a counterintuitive play for the big time, slowing down for the massive sing-along chorus."
Of course like millions of others I've been listening to "We Are Young" on repeat. Then once I started listening Some Nights, their second single lifted from the album, I went onto iTunes and got the full album for like $9. For someone who likes Top 40 and classic rock music, I loved every single song and their style-it's kinda theater-ish mixed with indie rock and electronic beats. Good job!
Fun is considered the best 'pop' music group. What I liked about the CD is that every song has pretty depressing lyrics, but with the music put with it, the song becomes uplifting and in some instances; an anthem. The song 'Carry On' is such an anthem song.
