Overview

Before "Fireflies" became one of the most downloaded tracks in digital history, Adam Young courted listeners on MySpace. Armed with synthesizers, a home recording setup, the vocal timbre of Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, and a moniker representing his hometown of Owatonna, MN, Young created an alternate world measured not in love and heartbreak but in vivid panoramas of wildlife and landscapes. His lyrics are poetry for a surprising number of souls who, like him, seem to have grown tired of the standard Top 40 fare. Young broke the rules of pop by writing songs not of human emotion but of seahorses, manta rays, and panda bears. And he broke the rules of electronica by using club beats not to push boundaries of innuendo and experimentalism but to clothe wholesome tales in all their glory. The heart of the album is the makeshift tribute "Hello Seattle," but each song has elements of brilliance. Comparisons to the Postal Service fall short; Owl City is more charming, catchy, and lyrical.

I heard about Owl City after his hit "Fireflies". I then began listening to his other work. I saw this, and I listened to the samples. I absolutely fell in love. This album was most definitely the soundtrack to my summer. This album is a definite buy and is a well-spent 7 dollars.

Good beat and music. I especially like the song Swimming in Miami. Give the album a listen if you're a new fan of Owl City or already are.
