God Is in the TV

Of Montreal’s UR Fun is a proper giddy listen.

80
Northern Transmissions

UR FUN lives up to its title, through 80s-inspired production and melodies, but also through a band-like warmth.

AllMusic

Taken together, infectious rhythms, smart lyrics, and effervescent chorus hooks that deliver throughout Ur Fun make it more than a mere amusement.

Spill Magazine

UR FUN is an amazing addition to the Of Montreal catalogue. It may not be my favorite Of Montreal albums, but it is certainly one of the best.

Paste

With tunes for dancing, thrashing and falling apart, of Montreal’s latest effort is a fitting start to 2020. The pre-drinks may have been a trip, but UR FUN is one party that you don’t want to miss.

Exclaim!

While Of Montreal's brand of pop music has often been brainy and verbose, these songs offer simpler pleasures. UR FUN is, well, fun.

What this album shows is that Barnes and his band are still capable of providing a soundtrack to the best party you’ll never be invited to.

65
Under The Radar

The album is a straightforward set of glistening pop songs that don't aspire to be much more than that.

Crack Magazine

A collection of songs that are musically concise and lyrically complex, with varying degrees of success on both fronts.

Pitchfork

UR FUN keeps the party going, even if it often sounds more like a patchwork of soft-boiled singles than an album with a cohesive narrative arc.

Of Montreal’s UR FUN is a good album, you all just have bad taste.

This album isn’t supposed to be analysed beyond belief, nor is it meant to be really looked at with a critical eye, it’s meant to be an album full of fun psychedelic bangers, which Kevin Barnes manages to pull off wonderfully. I can always turn to this album if I’m feeling low, or depressed, because I know it’ll make me feel better, it’s just dumb fun!

I think this is one of the most grating, annoying, and unenjoyable records I've ever listened to. The vocals are so bad the entire time, the instrumentals are so clunky, and the persona he embodies of this thing is so off putting. The lyrics are completely obnoxious, and honestly downright embarrassing at times.

Don't Let Me Die in America is a great example of this. This is just "America bad" the song. Most of the song is spent repeating the same lines over and over and then when ... read more

I'm a big fan of the band, especially since Hissing Faura..., but without lying to you I've never listened to an Of Montreal album as boring, predictable, almost generic at times and uninspired as this one. UR Fun sounds nice at times and it's always a pleasure to listen to the delirium and the voice of Kevin Barnes.

Of course I want to make it clear that my argument is my fan opinion, but it's not even that much fun, it sounds like a cliché of romance, pushed to the ridiculous. By ... read more
