Owl City always have and always will be one of my favourite bands, ever. This is thier 5th album, and it is truly wonderful.
The atmospheric and cosy, warm sounds of the perfectly timed synths really make you stop and just listen. I easily sat down and listened to the whole album twice in a row without even realising it.
Adam Young still remains my favourite song writer of all time, and I still can’t understand why he hasn’t won any Ivor Novello awards for his scintillating words and intriguing and cryptic stories.
Owl City had a lot to live up to following thier last album ‘The Midsummer Station’, which is my favourite of thier albums so far, but they really pulled it out of the bag this time, and I am almost certain that this is going to become my number 1 Owl City album with a few more listens.
Favourite Tracks: Thunderstruck, Unbelievable, Bird With A Broken Wing, Back Home and This Isn’t The End.
For Fans Of: Mika & Owl City’s previous albums.
