Some Nights ramps up the ambition and sonic bombast from the debut Fun. album, but also manages to be even more powerful and impressive. Though the album has more of a hip-hop influence than Aim and Ignite, there are still large doses of Queen and ELO coursing through the band's blood, both in the machine-crafted vocal harmonies and the ornate bigness of the sound. The album is overloaded with strings and horns, backing vocals, keyboards, and programmed drums surrounding Nate Ruess' lead vocals like a clamoring crowd, but never drowning out his innately sincere voice and painfully honest lyrics. On songs like the lead single "We Are Young" or the rollicking "All Alone," he provides a very human core that grounds things even as the music builds to ornate crescendos. It's an impressive achievement and Fun. deserves every bit of acclaim that comes its way because of it. ~ Tim Sendra
