Owl City is the brain child of Adam Young, a twenty-something American; strong in faith and with a voice all-too-perfect for the charts, it seems like he was destined for mainstream success. With its inoffensive lyrics and manufactured synth-pop sound, Owl City sways between The Postal Service in a sugar coma and the Jonas Brothers straight out of Disney vibe. Adam Young hasn’t dropped the standard formula (catchy electronica + irritating voice + cliché lyrics = Owl City song) which characterised predecessor ‘Open Eyes’, remembered only for the one-hit-wonder, ‘Fireflies’. For those that have enjoyed the sickly-sweet Owl City of old, ‘All Things Bright And Beautiful’ will be welcomed with open arms. However, it would appear that someone has left Adam Young on repeat.

It’s amazing isn’t it? How a bit of studio magic here, and a slight touch of autotune and quick go over on pro tools there can make a song sound completely different. It works in some people’s favours, and in other’s just totally backfires. It’s safe to say that Owl City is definitely the latter of the two. ‘Ocean Eyes’ is an eletronic mush that has no solid stability to stay above the wave of electronically driven and nourished acts cropping up today.

Musically, ‘Ocean Eyes’ is a beautiful a calming soundscape of synth and electronica, with little shots of acoustic guitar and soft drums that could even calm a wild boar. It’s happy, cheerful and swimming in utter serenity. It’s a shame that Adam Young has to go and open his mouth, laced with more electronics than you’d find in a Currys megastore, and just ruin your chill out time.
