5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful August 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album is simply terrific. I put my headphones on to listen to this album, and was I hooked after 10 seconds. There are very, very few albums that can capture me from first to the last track. This album did it--consistent and musically delightful in every sense--I knew that I would have a hard time listening to anything else for several weeks. The lyrics were well crafted, engaging, and thoughtful. Most importantly, the lyrics don't encumber the wonderful composition of the music. Nate, the lead singer, stamps the music with his unmistakeably catchy voice. The talent and raw emotion that he displays is undeniable. He sings about the painful experiences that are familiar to us all, but deals with it triumphantly. The music picks you up with each note. The lyrics leave leave him vulnerable, yet the music unrelentingly tries, and ultimately succeeds in lifting him [and you, the listener] up.

The most beautiful thing that an artist can do is play from the heart. This album is nothing but heart, be it broken or mended, and it gives it a ride through a beautiful emotional journey on a palanquin hoisted by oompa loompas.

Is it possible to stay sad while crying in a bounce castle [made out of cotton candy] that's full of lollipops and puppies? I didn't think so. Because that's exactly what this album is. This album is a sanity check. This album is

5.0 out of 5 stars An Auditory Epiphany August 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you're going to be in a band named Fun you'd better be amazing, or be prepared to be mocked for the rest of your life. Fortunately, the "fun" filled, Aim and Ignite is undeniably the product of some serious talent. I've honestly never heard anything quite like it.

The eclectic mix of influences that must have inspired this little masterpiece, seems so vast, it borders on overwhelming. I'm not sure whether I've stumbled across one of the first examples of genius combined with a lifetime of internet access, or the perfect balance between medicated and unmedicated ADHD. Whatever it is, from beginning to end, it's delightful. And, it seems to get better each time I hear it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Magic August 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As the notes of a piano and violin open the album, it's as if someone is lazily- almost from the need to savor the moment that is to follow- putting a white canvas onto a holder. Soon the canvas is joined by soft yet sure strokes of lush color. Though the painting that follows is whatever you, the listener, want it to be, it is undoubtedly gorgeous. The artist is reassuring you that, indeed, he is back- and he is better than ever. As Nate's voice continues to color in the gray grass with vibrant green, and the lifeless clouds with a startling white that contrasts the blue skies, the canvas is not enough. Instead of a two dimensional picture, you find yourself standing in the middle of a world being created. A completely immersive experience- I had left my dark room long behind within the first chorus line. Welcome to Aim & Ignite ladies and gentlemen- consider yourself in the presence of greatness.

After over ten listens to A&I, I have settled on one word to describe it: Epic. A sweet, yet multilayered album that absolutely refuses to compromise on its sound for mainstream accessibility. In today's world of music that's completely disposable, this album is as welcome as an ice cream truck on a scorching summer day. From the first seconds of the album, to the last, there are very few, if any, complaints from me. An album that manages to cycle through so many styles of music, I am humbled by the talent.

Lyrically, this album delivers. From being contemplative throughout the album ("I've reclaimed the use of my imagination, for better or for worse, I've yet to know") to just the plain sweet ("I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose, I will buy the flower shop"), this album is littered with gems. All of which is sung in Nate's beautiful and melodious voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Pop Album This Decade August 27, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
There are albums that you leave on repeat for weeks at a time. I remember my first experience with this kind of obsession. I'd sit in my room listen over and over, pouring over every lyric; noticing every syllable. That's not an experience I've had in quite a while, but Aim And Ignite has been the soundtrack to my life every day for weeks now.

The complexities of the music don't overwhelm the catchy melodies, but compliment them. The lyrics are a grand description of the journey we're all going through: growing up, moving away, changing, parting with friends, and finally coming home. Not only are the words poignant, they're understandable.

When The Beach Boys released Pet Sounds, Paul McCartney bought a copy for every member of his family because he believed it could teach them more about life than anything else. I'm considering doing the same thing for this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aim and Ignite January 26, 2013
First off, Fun. doesn't get the credit they deserve on this album since Some Nights really brought them to popularity, this one is often looked past. All the pretty Girls and Walking the Dog were my first impression of this album like most people and they were both solid and my favorites for awhile. Then I bought this and really listened to the songs and noticed many more were better. Fun. really put their best into this album with Be Calm, Benson Hedges, At least im not as sad (as i used to) and Barlights. Some Nights while great is personally not close to how good this album. I don't regret a second for buying this vinyl, and they even included the Audio CD. Well worth the money and all the Artwork is amazing. If any part of you is thinking to get this, get it. Great Album.
