That Fun album is so gaudy. This is coming from a Tempe guy, who grew up with The Format, and loved 'em. That album was a total mess. "Some nights" is a solid track, but really everything else was poorly arranged. It had some huge elements, but it didn't deliver. "Aim & Ignite" was so much better. It was the perfect brand of croon infected pop rock.

no love for Freelance Whales? i have some more albums to listen to but i think Diluvia is my AOTY (as Weathervanes was)
diluvia (and freelance whale, in general) is really, really good. "winter seeds" is such a great song.

Amazon's top 100 albums of the year: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...i= 5970857011

Of Monsters and Men is at number 1.
walk the moon at #12 is surprising. i really like that album, but it didn't seem to get too much recognition.

likewise, I think it's somewhere in the late 20's for me. I do really fucking love "Thinking Bout You" and "Bad Religion" though. If the whole album was that good I'd see where everyone was coming from.
this exactly.

It's just the worst album I purchased this year. I enjoyed Aim & Ignite and was a big fan of The Format and Steel Train, so I picked the album up to support them. I struggled to make it through one full listen, and gave up halfway through the second. The songs are bland and lifeless and the vocal effects are irritating as hell. It's poppy to the point of pap.

This is, of course, just my opinion; my distaste for the album shouldn't have any effect on your opinion of it. And those other albums may indeed be worse, but I don't like to waste my time on shitty music, so it's always disappointing when a band I really like(d) puts out a shitty album.
i'd recommend giving it another shot. it's definitely a grower. at least listen to the intro and the bonus track again.

I really dig that album as well, but for me it's just tough to connect with on some strange level, I can't really explain it. I really appreciate how good it is but it just doesn't make an emotional connection with me in the same way that On the Impossible Past or Twelve Years has.
i think it's so strange that those two albums get more attention than everything you ever loved. i love the make do and mend record, but don't get anything out of the other two.
