Biography

In the state of Minnesota lies a small town called Owatonna with roughly twenty-two thousand inhabitants; within that city is a quiet road with a modest house. In that house there’s an unkempt basement with no windows. Within those confines you’ll find Adam Young of Owl City hard at work, creating his electronic and melodically infectious brand of music with a simple and singular ...

Editorial Reviews

2011 album from singer/songwriter Adam Young AKA Owl City. All Things Bright and Beautiful finds Young expanding his sonic palette as he takes his listeners into a verdant musical dreamland on such tracks as first single "Alligator Sky," "The Real World," and "Dreams Don't Turn To Dust." Throughout the album, Young retains his trademark optimism, letting the listener know that no matter how tough times get, there's always light at the end of the tunnel. "I would feel weird if I were to communicate anything other than optimism, because it's just who I am," Young says. "It's always been in me to make Owl City a vehicle that sends a hopeful message. As a listener, I'm drawn to things that are really uplifting. When a certain melody grabs my ear, it makes me feel like I could be a better person."

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended album, a must-get!

This album sounds a little different than Owl City's usual work, but it really shows how well they [Adam] can adapt to different music styles.
FireflySpy
This new album sounds just like it, in fact I thought two of the songs sounded like a complete transplant.

Well, I finally downloaded this album (I have been excited about it since I heard back in March that it was coming out, but haven't had the money until now) and all I can say is WOW! I love it! There is not a song on this album that I don't like. I love how Owl City's music always sounds so happy and upbeat. I also like the fact that his Christian faith comes through more on this album than his previous work, as I am a Christian myself and love it when a music artist is not afraid to express his love for his Savior. Also, this album, just like his previous work, allows for such a wide imagination while you are listening to the songs. I can't really pick a favorite song off the album because they are all so good. Get it for yourself and you'll see what I mean.

I remember one day a couple years ago I was looking at music on Amazon MP3 and saw a free song called "Fireflies" by Owl City. I thought it sounded interesting and downloaded the song... little did I know that soon, iTunes would also offer the song for free and it would go on to propel Owl City into an unprecedented level of popularity. "Fireflies" was fun but I wasn't a huge fan, and after eventually purchasing the full Ocean Eyes album, I realized that although sole member Adam Young's music is all entertaining and simply oozes with charm, for the most part it just wasn't for me. Now, Owl City has released a new album called All Things Bright and Beautiful, and for a while I wasn't sure if I would get it or not despite some promising lead singles... but within about a week of its release I caved in and bought it. I haven't regretted that purchase in the slightest, though, because All Things offers even more brilliant displays of Young's fantastic imagination than before, both musically and lyrically.

Adam Young's imagination is really the centerpiece of his music, or at least that is how it would seem. Every song creates its own world of wonder and emotion, making each track distinct in some way, and every single song is notably fun and catchy. If you let your imagination illustrate tracks like "Honey and the Bee" and "Galaxies," you'll understand that they're aptly named. Also worthy of noting is the little taste of hip-hop throughout the music. At the core, Owl City's music is electronic, but this time around there are some definite hip-hop influences.

Dudes!!! This album is totally clean!! Don't pay attention to the 'explicit' label. There's seriously nothing bad about this album. This album sounds a little different than Owl City's usual work, but it really shows how well they [Adam] can adapt to different music styles. Definitely Worth the money!!

Owl City has created yet another breath-taking album with his latest album, "All Things Bright and Beautiful," that features twelve new tracks. His latest album is the follow-up to Owl City's previous album "Ocean Eyes," which peaked at number 8 on the US Billboard 200 and featured the quadruple-platinum hit single, "Fireflies." "All Things Bright and Beautiful" retains the same colorful, imaginative quality that Owl City is known for, yet also shows growth in musical style from Adam Young's previous album, "Ocean Eyes."Even Young states in his Youtube video, which talks about the making of "All Things Bright and Beautiful," "Even though you can work forever on a mix, on a song, on an album... in my mind it's never really done, but this new record is really a lot more finished than the last one, so I'm excited to feel that much more resolved."

In his latest album, Owl City remains true to his synth-pop style but also ventures to dabble in others styles. In both "Alligator Sky," which features the rapper Shawn Chrystopher, and "Kamikaze," Owl City uses hip hop beats and elements such as turntabilism; whereas the track, "Galaxies" fuses together Owl City's synth-pop with European trance. These tracks experiment with genres that have influenced Young's music: Owl City's website lists European trance artists such as Armin Van Buuren, ATB, and DJ Encore as influences, and in an interview Young says, "I just get lost in the rhythm of it all... As far as hip hop goes, it's kind of where my heart is." Other tracks such as "Hospital Flowers" and "Honey and the Bees" take on a more acoustic approach that is reminiscent of Young's other project, Sky Sailing.

Owl City also rewards its audience through the various artist collaborations in the track.

Owl City is back with a new full-length studio album - "All Things Bright And Beautiful" - out June 14th worldwide on Universal Republic. Produced by Owl City's Adam Young and recorded at Sky Harbor Studios the album features twelve new songs. "All Things Bright And Beautiful" is the follow-up full-length studio album to Owl City's platinum-selling debut "Ocean Eyes." "Ocean Eyes'" sales were led by the runaway single "Fireflies" which is currently quadruple platinum in the US. On "All Things Bright and Beautiful," the music and lyrics conspire to make listeners feel as if they were stepping into another world -- a musical dreamland where "reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't want to live there," as Young sings on the opening track "The Real World." That statement sums up the theme of this album well. Adam seems to write and sing songs that are mostly about living for something greater than this world. About how music and his faith merge, Young says, "Music is something that is fused to who I am. It allows me to breathe deeply, it lets me feel, imagine, aspire and dream in the most beautiful ways imaginable. Music is something that I can't imagine living without, and though it means more to me than the world itself, there is something that weighs significantly heavier on the scale of all things valuable and important in my life, that being my relationship with Jesus Christ."

Images of abundance, like a backyard of butterflies in "Honey and the Bee," blossoms filling a room in "Hospital Flowers," and "sunsets that dazzle in the dusk " in "Dreams Don't Turn To Dust" unfold alongside starry-eyed imaginings of cherry bombs staining blackbirds red in "Kamikaze" and dipping one's toes in the galaxy in the first single "Alligator Sky," featuring Shawn Chrystopher.
