We will most likely always disagree about this band than because I find Some Nights to be abysmal overall. I do like some of the stripped downed versions from these sessions. I tried very hard to like it and gave it plenty of listens but after a while just had to set it down and just admit that I wanted nothing to do with the album. Surprised me cause I love progression in sound and rarely find no merit in albums by bands I love.
Regardless though I am glad the band is getting the exposure they deserve and hope to like future albums. Sonically Some Nights did nothing for me but hey at least The Shins and Jukebox The Ghost had new albums this year I enjoyed.
