UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 9.0 |   Blurt

    The band moves a little further away from their Jellyfish-meets-ELO influence and brings in more modern studio touches. The transition is subtle at first but more obvious with each listen

  2. 8.0 |   BBC

    One big, beautiful oxymoron, and really rather special
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   FasterLouder

    Some Nights offers wit, intellect and ingenuity juxtaposed with commercial viability, emerging an essential pop record of 2012

  4. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Their second album rampages along with exuberant tunes underpinned by military-strength percussion

  5. 8.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Cynics will find the optimism too optimistic and the tunes too tuneful and the anthems too anthemic. Fuck 'em; they've just forgotten what it's like to be young

  6. 7.0 |   Spin

    Its slightly peculiar over-reliance on technology only makes it more human, more lovable, and more rock and roll
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Blends classic bubble-pop tunefulness with rococo rock & roll

  8. 6.0 |   The Fly

    As new spins on the Queen sound go, it’s clearly preferable to watching Brian May tit about onstage with Adam Lambert…

  9. 4.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    The stuff of a thousand, middling US soft-rockers and when they're not whining like Maroon 5, they're whining like Blink-182

  10. 4.0 |   Q

    A confused, turgid tangle of ideas. Print edition only

  11. 3.0 |   musicOMH

    Replete with tacky production and recycled ideas, its few merits are stretched to near breaking point

  12. 2.0 |   The Observer

    A reminder that many things commonly regarded as fun are in fact not only not fun, but actively depressing

  13. 2.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Skimming the top, fun. gets credit for its positive attitude and pocket full of catchy melodies, but on the whole, Some Nights remains forgettable
