Either there isn't a thread made for this band (which surprises the Hell out of me), or the search this forum function is buggy :P

Anyways, talk about Fun. here!

I've been getting really into them lately. Really dig both of their albums.

Boom. Search function blows, especially with bands who have really short names and/or punctuation.

Aim and Ignite is a really great album. I think the new one is experimenting with something so different that you can't really compare them. Both albums are great for different reasons.

You really think the new album blows or you just like Aim and Ignite better? I'd give the edge to Aim and Ignite as well, but "All Alright" and "Stars" are two of my favorites Fun. has made so far. Throw out "One Foot" and "It Gets Better," and I think the Some Nights album is right up there.

Agreed about One Foot and It Gets Better.

I don't get what's to like about Stars though. It's an autotuned mess :\. I really dig Why Am I The One and the Some Nights Intro though. Probably my favorites on the album.

That's a real tough question to answer. Riyl if you like broadway, pop rock, indie rock, classic rock such as Queen, and some hip hop vibes.

My best description is Weezer meets Queen with a huge variety of instruments, some musical-like melodies on occasion, and some random hip-hop kind of beats and tiny portions of auto-tuning on few tracks. But he uses the auto-tuning as an effect on his voice, not as an improvement. Nate's a very good high tenor with a crazy amount of vocal range. Fun. is a very, very diverse band, so I feel like there's at least one track that anyone could enjoy.

I think bands like Grouplove may be a decent comparison. Not sure, though.

The hip-hop influences are very, very subtle for the most part, though. So I wouldn't worry too much if that's a turn-off for you 'cause it usually would be for me.

Oh, I'm a huge supporter of sell-outs. Haha I think Some Nights just showed a different side of Fun. like new albums usually do. I think their music is going in a different direction for sure, but I'm not going to say they've sold out yet.
Although this news that they're working with Carly Rae Jepsen is making me nervous. Hopefully, I won't have to eat my words. They look bitter. Haha
