This New York–based baroque pop trio goes for a strange mix on its debut, creating a sound that’s influenced by ELO’s penchant for grand orchestrations and ELP’s progressive leanings in song structure. The band made the smart choices to employ the production skills of Redd Kross' Steve McDonald and use the arranging and keyboard talents of Jellyfish's Roger Joseph Manning Jr. “Be Calm” starts with the animated pomposity of Queen (check out Nate Ruess’ dynamic vocal range) and the complex song-charting of early Yes recordings. “Benson Hedges” follows, with soaring gospel harmonies that hover over a patchwork of vintage keyboards before the tune unfolds to reveal a guitar-pop epic as catchy as it is complex. But as involved and intricate as these songs are, Ruess and company neither succumb to proggy pretensions nor fall into the trap of making music for musicians. “The Gambler” balances British Invasion–era balladry with an earnest idealism of aging.
I can not believe this band is not as popular as it should be! Well that's not always a bad thing, no mainstreem music! I've been waiting for fun. to come out with a new song forever!! ah its soo good too. i have the previous album, if you havent already gotten it i HIGHLY recommend, I find my self never skiping a song. My favorite band as of right now.
Honestly, if you like the Format, you will love Fun. Nate is an amazing singer with this creativity that sparkles and shimmers and pops. I just got back from seeing Fun. live and they were ridiculously amazing. The album is glorious and I recommend everything! Especially Home and All the Pretty Girls.
Fun. Is Always Awesome
The entire album is gold and the new song and remixes are incredible.
