Seriously I don't like that album as much as other people on this site. I mean Some Nights and its intro are the best songs I've heard this year, but the rest minus few songs it's far inferior to Aim and Ignite.

2.5 seems a bit harsh don't you think?

eh I guess. I would give it a 6-7 out of 10 to be fair. I actually think the album has its good moments and I am sure some view it as a good album but it was just a letdown for me

I was just messing with you because you said 'half to agree' when he said the album was 5/10 haha. Don't mind me. The cane already yanked me off the stage. Wakka wakka.

Even though I wish Nate would come out with a ridiculous, over-the-top, theatrical album in the vein of the intro. That's the album I want them to make, and this is the album they clearly wanted to make...and that's fine, I love this album. If people don't like it, in my opinion they're missing out, I enjoy it and that's what matters to me.

No mention of Nate's darker lyrics? Good review, but I thought that was what separated this album from Aim & Ignite more than the music itself.

Oh God, We Are Young might be my senior class song. The hipster in me is dying little by little...

Finally got around to checking this band out. What an awesome album. Can already see it being one of my fav albums of the year. It Gets Better & Stars are the only tracks I don't like. But I reeeeeeally don't like them. The other 8 tracks are incredible. Love it.

I hadn't even heard We Are Young, then after hearing the album I heard it like 3 times on the radio the next day haha. #WhyIDontListenToRadio

Not a bad album - Not a patch on Aim and Ignite though IMO. There doesnt really seem to be any light and shade within it, just constant fluorescent yellow. Considering they seem to have gone out of their way to craft an out-and-out pop album, they isn't anything on here as perfectly judged and playful as 'Walking the Dog'.

As an experiment in pop music by an esteemed indie vocalist, I'd actually rate this as less of a success than 'My Blood is Full of Airplanes' by The Cinema - That's a far superior record to me.

Listened to it again after a good while of purposely not listening to it (first few times did not enjoy). I think it is better now than when I heard it at first but Stars is one of the worst songs I have ever heard that was meant to be taken seriously. It might be the worst song in this genre. Besides that some of the album is really addictive. It is not a great album by no means and hardly deserves all the praise it gets in comparison to what the band could do (and has done) but I guess it is worth picking up as long as the store I get it at is having a sale.

Haha I wouldn't really go that far, but I do think it has an awesome intro and then just becomes a boring, auto-tuned mess. Most disappointing song I've heard in a while, that's for sure
