Micro-Review: Fun.’s SOME NIGHTS

With a theatricality that would make Gerard Way green with envy and a tendency towards the burlesque that would make Brenden Urie blush, Fun.’s sophomore effort, SOME NIGHTS, is a sporadic, eclectic genre-chaser that hits all the right notes even as it auto-tunes the hell out of them in the process. Amidst the huge harmonies and operatic instrumentation, Fun. still represents some buried remnant of the pop-punk genre – they’ve just joined the ranks of a slew of other bands that have left the genre so far behind that it’s become almost unrecognizable from its pure roots. And for that reason alone this album is worth checking out, even if you don’t quite know what to make of it.
