  • Summary: The sophomore album for the North Carolina indie rock band was produced with Jacquire King.

  1. Genre flirtations aside, this is one of the better pop albums of the year. [Fall 2008, p.74]
  2. This North Carolina-based sextet's major-label debut is as rich and diverse as 2006's "Be He Me," unfolding with layers of piano and string flourishes, crunching guitar jams and vibrant pop melodies.
  3. The band's sunny and melodic exuberance ensures that Such Fun is, above all else, a lot of fun.
  4. 70
    Their bright Americana ditties have a newly retro, country-fried twist that suits them just swell. [Nov 2008, p.88]
  5. Such Fun might fill that space over the fireplace, but it doesn't really pull the room together.
  6. The band retains an experimental edge, but it’s all-too-often now embodied in clinical genre-hopping, meaning that for all its ostensible claims, Such Fun just isn’t as fun as it should be.
