“WE ARE YOUNG”. Am I suppose to stop enjoying something after it’s become one of the most successful rock (which is a very questionable word here) in the last few years? I say “Nay!”. So the band beefed up with electronic instruments and use autotune (even though they don’t need it). Big Deal! Wanna Fight About It?! Check out “Stars” and tell me that’s not the best use of autotune ever. If you listen to their debut album Aim & Ignite or even Nate Reuss’s former band The Format, you’ll know that there has always been close traditional pop/rock influences. Some Nights is no different here. I hear Kanye, The Beatles, Queen. I can’t argue with that.
So maybe I felt a little guilty going into a Omega Music and buying a popular record at it’s height. But that guilt was and will always be washed free after opening up the double gatefold and listening to this 180 gram vinyl through some loud speakers. Years down the road what’s so different from buying a record from Hall & Oates or Michael Jackson or The Cars. I have a feeling that an album like this will be gladly purchased with no guilt years down the road. Except it won’t be me, I already own it. Jealous much future.
