I really dislike them. They were bad when they were"indie" and they're bad now. I'm in a band though and will say I wish I thought of the We Are Young chorus, but I really hate Some Nights, the song, the most.
The grammy winners for best new artist in 2012 and 2013 have some similarities. 2012 was Bon Iver and 2013 was fun. Both were somewhat established artists releasing their second albums so it's a little odd they were nominated for new artist, considering fun. and Justin Vernon have been making music for more than a decade, but both albums nevertheless saw both gain a ton of popularity and both made a name for themselves.
Looking at album structure too it's similar, because if you look at Bon Iver's album last year and fun. this year, both of their first halves of the album are phenomenal, but the second halves drops off considerably. I decided to check their album out after hearing We Are Young and Some Nights. Some Nights is the best song on the album. I love the African beat and it actually reminds me a lot of Lost in the World featuring Bon Iver from Kanye's album which has some of that Afro-beat as well. I was surprised at hearing the intro, it had a much more theatrical sound than I expected and the first thing that came to mind was a similar sound to Queen. The thing I like about fun. is that they sound like pop songs, but they have meaning to them if you look deeper. Nate Ruess references "tea parties and twitter, I've never been so bitter" in the intro, Some Nights sounds like an anti-war song, of course We are young has meaning and so on. But the second half just doesn't hold up as well. Still not a lot of people knew who fun. was prior to this and now they do and have a couple grammies to show for it as well, so they have to consider this a big step up for them and they were nominated in song/record/album of the year and best new artist, something only Christopher Cross did 30+ years ago, so that's saying a lot for them and I look forward to seeing them progress in their career.
At the time of writing of this comment this album is currently at 26, and honestly thats pretty much the perfect spot for this album. At it's initial release I really detested this album, but my little sister convinced me to give it another try and I'm quite glad I did. This is great pop rock at it's finest mixed in with a good dose of glam and pomp. Sure it has flaws (Janelle Monae deserves better then what she's given with in We Are Young), but overall there's some solid stuff here. Tracks like Carry On, Why Am I The One, and the opener are fantastic. The title track is the highpoint, due to not only being a great pop song, but a smart and thoughtful pop song as well. The media has often compared these guys to Queen and with a few more albums of this quality or better, that description will be pretty accurate.
This is the type of pop music i'm into nowadays. Combine queen and elo with a geeky, beat-centric hip-hop album obsessed with lonely nights spent with friends and you have "some nights". "we are young" is great, even if janelle's vocals are rather plain and underutilized. I wish the "some nights intro" was extended -- i love the queen-like vocals. Auto-tune is used to good effect in some places and is a bit annoying in other places (where i wish they could've just layered some harmonies instead, like on "stars"). It's a bold choice, both a strength and weakness, for this indie pop band which otherwise has little teeth but a mastery of the pop song.
Horrible album except for the song "Some Nights". That song is great.
This band was shit before they got popular, too. Stop giving them money.
How can they only be young for one night?
Tonight I'm young, so I set this shit on fire, yai-ha-yai so I set this shit on fire
mainstream trash that little girls thinks is good music that has alot of talent.
in other words.
Enjoying the album so far. Personal favourites are: Some Nights (Intro), Some Nights, carry on and of course We Are Young. However, Some of the auto-tuning is awful. It is used effectively in some places but some times it is just overused and stupid especially in part of Some Nights.
