A disappointed fan
I've always been a huge Owl City fan. The reason I liked Adam Young and his music so much is because it was always so imaginative, beautifully written, and I remember distinctly being in awe of such beautiful lyricism. I loved the vocabulary he used, how creative the words were, and how happy they made me feel. I also loved how the music wasn't obnoxiously distracting, but sort of minimal yet lovely. When his Shooting Star EP came out I didn't mind the music in it too much, but this? It's so unoriginal. I must say I expected more of Adam. This sounds like the mainstream "PARTY PARTY PARTY!!! It's ALL ABOUT FUN!" stuff and it doesn't suit him.
I will not be buying this one. I own all of his albums (besides the EP, I've run out of iTunes money), but this single is something I'm skipping out on. I really hope this track isn't hinting at a future side of Adam Young, because his music used to be just breathtaking. Now it's nothing different than what you'd find on a pop radio station.
Yeah, that's all I have to say. I really didn't expect this and it really is disappointing. I am one of Owl City's biggest fans but I just can't support this particular song. It's so utterly different from the Adam we all knew and loved, and not in a good way. I don't mind experimenting but the lyrics in this are so pointless that I wonder whether or not a nine-year-old wrote them. The music is also sounds overproduced. Sure, he's allowed to write fun and even pointless songs, but where did his creativity go?
I have to say, although this is a departure from adam's usual style, i like it. It definitely has more of a pop vibe than his older music, but i think he pulls it off just as well. that being said i do still prefer his old stuff. I think as long as he never says "shawty" in any of his songs, I'll keep listening.
Dear Adam Young Fans and HootOwls
There is no "new Adam Young" and there is no "old Adam Young", his music is from how he feels, and never is he anything but himself- he has made that vow to himself. Sure his music has changed, but that's just because he has changed, we all change. Not in a good way, nor a bad way, we just... Change. So back off. You may not find his music the way you like it, but be more flexible, I personally love ALL of Adam's music and I will love anything he puts out. And remember that this is not just Adam who created the song, I'm sure Carly had a lot of say in the lyrics and sound. So stop the hate, and appreciate.
That is all,
