Stars is fucking amazing. I wasn't a fan of the autotuned part at first but it grew on me like a motherfucker. Top 5 on the album for me.

I still fail to understand the hype behind this album and this band.

Have you heard Aim & Ignite? I mean, if you can't stand this band it might not change your mind but it's at least a much more cohesive (and, yeah, better) album than Some Nights. Then again, I've been a huge Nate Ruess fanboy for years so I'm a little biased.

Like the other post said go check out Aim & Ignite. This album is nothing compared to that.

I haven't but I'll definitely check it out. I enjoy the first two tracks on this album but the rest just doesn't do it for me.

fun. will always remain high in my regard, especially with this release. Even though I do prefer Aim and Ignite and enjoy much more than Some Nights, this album is still one for the books. Nate never disappoints!

This is the first time that I have ever bought an album on a whim for one song (Carry On), and found that the other tracks are just as good, if not better! I've been listening to this all week, and I usually put my ipod on shuffle and leave it there.

Probably the largest second step for any band in the past ten years.

It's only until the sheer repetitiveness of We Are Young has died down that I've actually had a chance to sit down and appreciate this album for what it is. It is bloody genius and deserves every bit of hype it gets.

What strikes me hardest is that this is one of the rare occasions a band goes absolutely super-gargantuan, yet they make an album so accessible so personal, that you almost feel like you're the only kid in town who knows about them.

I adore the singles on it, I think Carry On is just a fucking masterpiece in its own right. It's how pop songs oughta sound. I still have reservations about It Gets Better. I mean, I can happily listen to it, but when I want to relax and enjoy Some Nights, I have to skip it. Luckily, the remainder of the album is still supreme.

I was waiting for someone to snag me for this. Le sigh. I was certain Frank Ocean was going to grab it. And I never thought the band was going to gain the traction that they did. I'm a horrible prognosticator. So it goes.
