Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Dougan
Daniel Johnston's major-label debut is, arguably, his finest moment. With considerable help from Butthole Surfer Paul Leary, Johnston has never sounded so self-assured or confident before. Some of the songs are more polished, but they're never slicked up to such a degree that this sounds like a user-friendly approximation of Johnston's style; in fact, there are plenty of tracks that return Johnston to the keyboards "Delusion & Confusion" and "My Little Girl" for his freewheeling, primitive workouts. Exhibiting some of his strongest songwriting to date, Fun is a rewarding record that never loses its initial, visceral appeal.

    Good ol' Danny

    Not the same effect that the lo-fi stuff has, but definitely good. Can listen to this over and over.
