Editorial Reviews

Owl City is the creation of Adam Young, a Minnesota native who started making music at home and building up a fanbase via the internet before breaking worldwide with his global hit Fireflies in the summer of 2009, taken from his Top 10 album Ocean Eyes . The single went to No.1 in both the US and the UK and topped the charts in many other countries. Live From Los Angeles was filmed in high definition at Club Nokia on 21 July 2011 and is the first DVD and Blu-ray release by the band. It includes tracks from their recent album All Things Bright And Beautiful , alongside songs from Ocean Eyes and the self-released debut album Maybe I m Dreaming . Adam Young has developed from a shy musician operating out of his bedroom into a confident and dynamic live performer and this concert in front of a wildly enthusiastic young audience proves just how good he and his band can be. / Bonus Features: Behind the scenes montage and Adam Young interview. / Track Listing:
1) The Real World 2) Cave In 3) Hello Seattle 4) Angels 5) Swimming In Miami 6) Umbrella Beach 7) I ll Meet You There 8) Plant Life 9) Setting Sail 10) The Bird And The Worm 11) Lonely Lullaby 12) Fireflies 13) Dreams Don t Turn To Dust 14) Kamikaze 15) Meteor Shower 16) Galaxies 17) Alligator Sky 18) Deer In The Headlights 19) Yacht Club 20) How I Became The Sea 21) If My Heart Was A House

If you like Owl City's recorded material, then you should enjoy this DVD. The songs, while mostly faithful to the album versions, do include some very creative intros/outros/transitions and instrumental sections that definitely put the "rock" into Owl City, as well as showcase the stellar musicianship of the whole band (not just Adam Young).

I went to one of the other shows on this tour ("All Things Bright and Beautiful"), and this DVD is an accurate representation of the great show that I saw, i.e. it's not a carefully-spliced-and-edited DVD of best-takes from multiple shows. That tour (and this DVD) should erase any concerns people have about Owl City being a "studio band."

The performance is spectacular, no doubt. But as a musician and a sound geek, I have some issues with the production...

Mix: Some parts of the mix are missing. You'll always hear Adam, the guitars, main drum kit, loops, synth strings -- but you won't always the REAL strings (violin, cello), backup singers, and sometimes the second drum kit (where they tear it up on a couple of songs!). I heard all of these elements during the concert I was at, so I know they were mic-ed! So either those tracks didn't get recorded, or they weren't mixed high enough to hear on the DVD. This is a shame, because the band sounded even fuller in person than what the audio on the DVD implies.

Auto-tune: Despite a heavy-handed use of digital pitch correction on his albums, Adam Young actually has an excellent live singing voice, which I appreciated from 15 feet away. UNFORTUNATELY, they've taken that lovely live voice and auto-tuned in post-production, so you'll never hear it on this DVD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD with a really bad box August 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really like this Dvd, Owl City live in Los Angeles, and i got it on Aug. 08,2014. If you like owl city, then you really should buy this.
But the one that i got, has some fissures all over the DVD's box, and there is big one in the front. I bought it not just for watching beacuse I am also collecting some owl city's CD and DVD. So that is kind of bad for me. The DVD which is inside the box can work very well, so maybe I just need to change a box.

I’ve only been an Owl City fan for about a year, and I can’t get enough. I’ve purchased everything I can find by Adam Young. He brings a breath of fresh air to the Synth Pop genre, not to mention that he’s a genuine, talented individual who knows much more than simply the fundamentals of orchestration and music theory.

I’ve heard comments regarding “auto-tune” use, which I believe are absurd. I believe there are those that condemn the use of vocoders as a form of style, which most synth and pop styles use in that manner. They’re pretty obvious to detect, and the only time I’ve heard anything like this was for style, and not for correction of the tuning in his voice. He’s proven himself as a gifted vocalist, over and over, be it through impromptu radio performances, and other such endeavors.

But on to the “Live From L.A.” Blu-ray video concert. Video is very good, but I wouldn't call it reference quality. You’ll see some amount of video blocking as cameras sometimes turn directly into the stage lights and darkness of the audience, a mistake I see often in concert video recording. But it's nothing that interfered with my overall enjoyment of the concert.

The audio is superb, and the mix, credited to Adam Young, is perfect. Now I realize that some may not hear as much of the live cello and violin as they would have liked, but I think this may depend on your audio playback settings. The concert video includes a non-compressed, PCM track that I listen to using Dolby Pro Logic IIx (7.1 speaker setup) and I am blown away by the ability to distinguish the clarity of all of the individual performers. I find Young to not only be an outstanding composer, orchestrator, and performer, but very proficient in audio mixing.
