View Full Version : fun. Some Nights

I picked up this album last month after hearing a few tracks on the radio. This is one of the best pop albums that I have heard in quite a while. You've probalby heard a song or two...most likely We Are Young, or the title track Some Nights. The opening track, Some Nights (intro) is very reminiscent of Queen. There are some very stong hamonies and a little drama a la Freddie Mercury. The title track, Some Nights, has a kind of marching band/celtic vibe. The first time I heard this I thought the band was from the Maritime Provinces in Canada as it had a very east coast feel. I could easily see a band like Great Big Sea covering this song at some point.

There is only one weak track on the album, IMO. It Gets Better is not a bad song really, but the use of an autotuner makes it inlistenable for me.

Overall I have to give this album an 8/10. I've been spinning it regularly since I bought it and it continues to be a fun, toe-tapping, sing at the top of my lungs, listen. :)
