I just realized Owl City looks just like an emo Elliott Smith

I'm liking how Young is pushing his voice and sounding a lot more aggressive in the chorus. If anything, Hoppus is the sissy on this track.

Dude don't insult Elliott like that, this guy looks like a twat and Elliott looks like Professor Snape

I liked it too, and for the haters, Owl City uses pitch correction, not autotune.

Much better then anything Owl City has ever done before and I'd actually say it's because of the vocal effort Adam Young gives.
If only everything else in it was improved, I'd probably like the track. =/

Bizarrely, I don't hate this. It's over-produced, but it's actually got quite a bit of energy behind it.

'I liked it too, and for the haters, Owl City uses pitch correction, not autotune.' ummmmm..... Autotune is like Band-aid... it's the brand name of a product called the adhesive strip. Antares created 'Antares Autotune' which is just the brand name of the product which utilizes pitch correction among other things... so yea you're dumb

and generally, when a plebian says a band uses auto tune, unless it's that gay tpain shit it's almost always in reference to key and hitting the right notes

Anything Mark does, I'll give it an honest listen/viewing with an open mind. He's kept it real throughout his career.

Different enough from his old stuff to listen to the whole thing, but still bad. Those lyrics . . .

Ending a hook with "driving me crazy" belongs to Tom DeLonge. He solidified that with "After Midnight"

"I liked it too, and for the haters, Owl City uses pitch correction, not autotune."

And why would pitch correction be any better than autotune, even if they were different? If you have to correct yourself with a computer, you are a talentless pussy. Pitch correction is actually worse in my opinion, as people use it because they can't sing. Autotune is used creatively (Although really badly in my opinion)

A real singer doesn't need pitch correction.
