Open mind

TheDavidLaws,

Young takes a bold look into going beyond anything else he's done. This album really stands on its own, and as far as score music goes, it's quite good. We can expect great things going forward.

What I personally love about this album, is that the music doesn't tell you how you're supposed to interpret it; one day I may listen to it when I'm feeling happy/excited, but tomorrow I could listen to it feeling isolated/deep in thought and enjoy it just as much.

Dazzling

Henry314,

Imaginative and heartfelt, Apollo 11 sets Adam Young scores off to a dazzling start. Trajectory Burn is magnificent. While I do hope that Adam will use more of his signature dreamy synth sounds in scores to come, Apollo 11 is nevertheless a fantastic album that showcases Adam’s incredible musical talent and is well worth the listen.

About Adam Young

An innovative, Minnesota-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and performer, Adam Young is best known as the mastermind behind the chart-topping electro-pop project Owl City -- he has also recorded under the aliases Port Blue, Sky Sailing, and Insect Airport. Young launched the project in 2007 while living at his parents' home in Owatonna. Troubled by insomnia, he began spending his evenings in the household basement, where a computer and several instruments provided a diversion from his sleeping patterns. He eventually combined those diversions into a blend of electronica and emo-pop, using little more than his computer and various keyboards to record the material. Songs were uploaded to MySpace upon completion, and Young began attracting a surprising amount of attention on the networking site. Of particular note was "Hello Seattle," a fabricated ode to the Emerald City whose viral popularity earned Young a record contract with Universal Republic.

Ocean Eyes, his first album for the label, was released in 2009, coinciding with the launch of Owl City's first national tour. While on the road, Young watched as "Fireflies" became one of the year's most popular singles, eventually topping the charts in several countries (including the U.S.) and selling more than three million copies. Subsequent Owl City releases All Things Bright and Beautiful (2011), The Midsummer Station (2012), and Mobile Orchestra scaled similar heights, and in 2016 he began releasing, under his own name, an ambitious monthly series of instrumental scores based on historical events. ~ Andrew Leahey
