Review: Fun. – Some Nights (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Fun. – Some Nights.

This track was released in 2012 on the album Some Nights.

This track is probably one of the more confusing ones we’ve heard in quite a while. One moment, it’s an acoustic pop track. The next moment, it’s a pop rock track. It becomes some sort of strange R&B song in another moment. It was so confusing, I had to sit and think about what genre it was and just took the genre that took the biggest percentage overall. This track has an identity crises it has so many styles and genre’s mixed in and hardly any of them meshed together that well.

The track had it’s moments that sounded decent. Ironically, it was when there was no real lyrics in it. While it does make this track a good candidate for sampling for, say, commercials, it doesn’t necessarily make it great for listening to as a whole.

After hearing the track and reading the lyrics, it’s still next to impossible to figure out what they are all about. I suppose it has something to do with leaving somewhere and selling your soul, but beyond that, it’s a blur of words. With the upbeat music that pops in and out from time to time, that only serves to make it even more difficult to gauge what this track is even supposed to be about.

The huge pitfall in this track is the flow, or complete lack of it. The track more or less splices in random styles and, occasionally, random genre’s with virtually no transitioning at all. As a result, it’s extremely difficult to even get into this track just because it just suddenly changes completely ever 15 to 30 seconds.

With a track that has a stylistic identity crises and virtually no flow, the only thing this track may be good for is sampling for commercials. Listening to this track as a whole and being treated to lyrics that practically make no sense, there’s very little chance this track can be enjoyable.

Score
4/10
