EDITORS’ NOTES

Never has such unadulterated glee, desire, and youthful exuberance been so perfectly filtered as it has on anthems like "We Are Young," "All Alone," or "Some Nights"; rarely has a pop vocalist come through such lavish instrumentation and prodigious production with the results Nate Ruess delivers. His voice reaches and stretches, always with enough plaintive sincerity and sparkling energy that it avoids saccharine pop purgatory with room to spare. Producer Jeff Bhasker (who produced Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) knows the meaning of the word "big," and precious few are the studio wizards who know exactly when to rein it in. Some Nights is an undeniably massive record, in all the good ways.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Fun.'s new album.

I am a die hard Fun. fan, heard a song or two from the Format. I really thought this new album would be musical gold. No doubt it is great, but nothing compared to Aim and Ignite.

Auto tune much?

1st album was great. This album will take some getting used to. Some good songs on here, but too much auto tune. I prefer your natural voice. It's what makes you great. To see this album played in a live performance will be interesting. Please don't disappoint. See you soon.
