Sing It All Away
The second major-label album by the hit-covering viral successes is a sugary, ultra-rich pop-rock record in the Fun. vein. Sing It All Away sees the band still very much devoted to its cheery, triumphalist motto "Realize Every Victory Outright" -- "We ain't rich but we worth a lot," goes "Hold On (The Break)". Gated drums propel giant choruses on slow builds like the bar-sing-along title track; the tight, unusually cynical breakup song "Boomerang" features the album's best whoa-ohs.
