I purposely listened to "Aim and Ignite" first so this album could disappoint me, but it actually didn't! That said, it isn't as fun (herr derr) as their previous album, but it's rather excitingly produced and has plenty of strong tracks. 4.5
****
nicht schlecht...neben denn highlights: We Are Young & Some Nights fallen die anderen songs aber ein wenig ab...trotzdem nicht schlecht...

Excellent Album! A very solid production, which each track being as anthem-ic as each other, and with a Queen feeling to all. Just the intro is a bit quirky. Although it is hard to compare, these guys are basically the modern day Queen (just beating Muse to it).

Average - 5.5

The vocals, the sounds effects, and especially the backing music for each and every track is just flawless, and very awesome. One of the best this year!

I like the production and most of the vocals but there are too many let downs here - especially with the use of autotune and some unnecessarily lengthy tracks. I like the heavy drums of most of the tracks here, and the anthemic choruses, as well as the way that Fun. are able to change tempo easily and make it sound normal. I liked Why Am I The One and All Alone as well as the singles so this is a 4* for me. Decent stuff I guess. I would say avoid 'It Gets Better' and 'Stars' though.
******
Excellent album, every track is very enjoyable and I just love the high drama this album creates. I'm yet to listen to Aim & Ignite, but I definitely want to after how good this is!
****
The first half of the album exceeded my expectation while the second half was just disappointing for me.

I find it very difficult to access the merits of the music of fun. Their work seems to be equal measure of really offputting traits (corny hooks potentially lifted from Freddie Mercury's posthumous recordings, reducing the presence of Janelle freaking Monae to a tacky four-note semi-melody, the constant use of vocoder on Nate's fine voice which can be used to great or grating effect but feels a bit unnessessary) and some traits which I really really like (their love of Kanye West's music and inspiration to make unconventional use of MPCs hence the presence of Jeff Bhasker on production, the detailed layers of confused and uncertain emotions in their lyrics discussing matters from existentionalism to self-doubt and all the other matters, possibly another example of Kanye's influence, Jack Antonoff also has a pretty neat guitar style whose frilly solos do a good on upping the rock side to their music when neccessary). Anyway while the two big singles were a bit irksome on first listen (and still are in some places) but they've grown to be enjoyable tunes I'm always in the mood for. Thankfully the rest of the record is still pretty consistent, if slightly lacking the impact of the intro + hits section. I'm nevertheless pleased by what their aiming for with their music and hope the experimentation of hip-hop sounds out of hip-hop context continues to grow. After an era ten years ago of stupidly obvious combinations of rock and hip-hop from the shitty likes of Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit, they've managed to combine the two in a way that doesn't sounds much like either normally would, and that's definitely something.
