So I'm sitting here listening to fun. for the first time in my life.
And it's just perfect.
I've heard of them before, and I know a little about them..but I've never really listened to them before now.
I had never really gotten into The Format before [other than Love It When You Call..great song] due to me being introduced to good music a little later than would have been preferred [but that's a whole 'nother blog..], so I really didn't know what to expect..but I had heard many good things about Aim & Ignite, and I needed a break from all the SYG, FYS, and NFG I've been listening to lately, so I decided to listen to [coughdownloadcough] the album.
I still don't know how to describe it..it's just so GOOD!
Sure, it's pop music, but it's so much more than that. The melodies are so much more complex and, well, melodic than anything I have ever heard before. And the lyrics are just fantastic.
I dunno what to classify it as though..like I said, it's pop music, but that tag just has so many negative connotations to it..I've heard it called circus pop before I think, but I tend to associate that with something like A Fever You Can't SweatOut and it just doesn't sound like that really..it reminds me a lot of the artist Mika, but I wouldn't really know what to call him either..it's like flamboyant indie circus pop..
I cannot find anything wrong with this record..besides the fact that it's a little hard to digest. I'm going to need to listen to this a few more times to actually hear everything.
