Relaxing, Acoustic and Filled with Dreams
on December 30, 2010
I've been an Owl City fan for about a year now, and am pretty impressed with all of Adam's work. What he has done with his music is something few have achieved. Through his songs, he exudes a positive attitude, peppers his songs with humor and dreams, and all the while, he manages not to let fame go to his head.
An Airplane Carried Me to Bed is a musical glimpse into Adam's life before he was Owl City - an album filled to overflowing with hopes, dreams, and whimsical musings. "Captains of the Sky" brings back carefree days of childhood while "Explorers" paints an elaborate and sprawling dreamscape filled with mountains, nostalgia, and the summer days of yore.
The whole album is a brilliant canvas of dreams - a sonic equivalent to confectioner's sugar. If you like Owl City, but are more of a fan of acoustic instruments rather than synthesizers, you will enjoy this album very much. I found myself singing along to many tracks, and am sure you will too.
