Amazing. Genius. Bright & Beautiful!


This album is just amazing! Adam Young has won our hearts over yet again. Thank you so much, Adam, for all of your hard work. I could say thank you a million times and it still wouldn't be enough. The Owls (a.k.a. fans) will be there supporting you every step of the way because you deserve it! (:

Brilliant. Best album of 2011.


Adam Young never fails to amaze me with each new release of his. There was this dreadful thought in my head every now and then that this album was going to be a repeat of Ocean Eyes, and let me just say that I'm really glad that wasn't true. Adam really raised the bar with this record and went places I never thought he would. The songs still retain the trademark Owl City sound, but with a lot more depth and experimentation.

One of the things I love the most about this album is the application of his faith into the songs. Very rarely do you see a Christian artist break into the secular scene so smoothly, but Adam does it perfectly. He glorifies Christ in a way that is not in your face but is really uplifting to every listener. My most favorite songs off the album are Galaxies, Kamikaze, and Hospital Flowers. God bless Adam Young :) This album will be on repeat for a long time!

About Owl City

Owl City is the musical brainchild of Adam Young, who launched the project in 2007 while living at his parents' home in Owatonna, Minnesota. Troubled by insomnia, Young 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. A deluxe edition of the album appeared in 2010, featuring seven bonus tracks as well as the original track list, and Universal Records capitalized on the buzz by also reissuing Maybe I'm Dreaming and Of June, both of which had been self-released several years earlier. An Airplane Carried Me to Bed, an album of acoustic pop songs that predated the Owl City project, followed in 2010. Technically a side project, the album was released under a different moniker, Sky Sailing. Young returned to Owl City in 2011 with All Things Bright and Beautiful, his first collection of new material in years. The Midsummer Station followed in 2012. A highly collaborative affair, the album featured production assistance from big-budget producers like Stargate and Robopop as well as cameos from Blink 182's Matt Hoppus and rising mainstream pop radio star Carly Rae Jepsen. The Midsummer Station -- Acoustic EP, which featured unplugged versions of three of that album's songs plus two previously unreleased tracks, arrived in 2013. That year, Owl City songs appeared on the soundtracks to The Croods, The Smurfs 2 and the VeggieTales Christmas movie Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas. Young also provided the music for Oreo Cookies' 2013 television commercial "Wonderfilled." The following year, he covered "Listen To What the Man Said" on the Paul McCartney tribute The Art of McCartney, and released the singles "Beautiful Times" and "Kiss Me Babe, It's Christmas Time" as well as the Ultraviolet EP. Featuring the Aloe Blacc collaboration "Verge," Mobile Orchestra appeared in July 2015.~ Andrew Leahey
