Ironically, I was searching out the proper thread to ask the cool kids if I was supposed to be enjoying Fun as much as I have for so long. Their most recent SNL appearance has me mainlining the album all over again.
It's like Freddie Mercury and Paul Simon had a secret love child who actually founded the REAL Polyphonic Spree, and I find nothing wrong with any aspect of that scenario.
But I fear my inevitable descent into fogeyism
Then again, FTR, I don't give a shit what anyone thinks of my Mumford love. Folk with roots in the Emerald Isle has always had a centerplace in my heart
