DON'T TELL ME HOW MY THOUGHTS ARE

Good production is not overproduction.

this x 50

I smell some Kanye influences. Great stuff

the trail off/autotuned shit on "stars" definitely supports this statement.

Love the vocals and lyrics so much.
Warming up to the music (had to for "We are Young" and "One Foot" when they first came out, and I love them so I know I'll love this).

It's no Aim and Ignite, but it's way better than I anticipated. Very well done. I'll for sure be purchasing!

Pretty god pop album. It is really well crafted. It has the charm of queen, perfect production, and part of it reminds me of how Marianas Trench does pop music to a degree. The album took me for surprise at a lot of times. Only dislike the excessive use of voice enhancement. Nate's natural voice and the albums production was enough. That sorta kills it at times.

This albums is chock full of amazing pop songs. While it doesn't resonate on the same level with me as "aim and ignite," I believe this will bring big things for the band and for that I'm happy. My only gripe is the vocoder.... I get it was probably a style choice but it is a choice that is in every pop song. They can do better in my opinion....but hey if that is my only complaint than not bad! Great album overall and still very much fun.

I love it.
I know some pople hate the autotuning but I wish there was more. Nate's voice is great but I prefer the direction of Some Nights over Aim and Ignite.

I love when you know 30 seconds into an album that you're going to have it on repeat for weeks to come. I've listened to it at least five times today and am still overwhelmed with how good the first half is. It has stronger points than others, and it's no Aim & Ignite, but Aim & Ignite is perfect as it is -- I don't want another one. The autotuning doesn't bother me too much. It was pretty unexpected and I realize it's just a creative effect and I think it works awesomely with his voice. The writing is awesome and I keep finding myself saying "YES" in agreement to lyrics. Nate's voice sounds better than ever, as if that was possible.

Last night during the Grammy's and I saw the Chevy commercial "We Are Young" is played on and I thought, "wouldn't it rule if they were performing this song on next year's Grammy's?" I'm not putting it out of the question. At least VMA's?! So happy for them with the exposure it's getting already. Deserved.

People on facebook are shitting on this album because of the production. Their loss for being close minded.
