Review Summary: at least he isn't singing about Fireflies...right?

I remember the first time somebody showed me Fireflies by Owl City. I also remember how much I disliked the person previous to him showing me it and how much I despised him post listening. It was dreadful, it was horrendous, it was vile.

I'm still wondering why I just bothered to listen to Owl City's latest release entitled "The Midsummer Station".
Kicking things off with a duet with Carly Rae Jepsen... yep the "Call Me Maybe" girl...there isn't much hope left for the rest of the album.

From this point on it is a downward spiral into what can only be called "audio autism" as Adam Young slams his head into his Korg for maximum sound and minimal art.

There is nothing good about this album, there is nothing good about this band.

Not even the lyrics can save this masterpiece of awful. At least previous releases had some inventive lyrics.

Sure they made as much sense as tits on a horse, but at least they were nice to look at.

Why do people insist on releasing to such terrible music. Please, I beg you, do not listen this album or this band.

Put on The Postal Service if you feel a need for synthesised pop, as this album will only drive you to self harm.

One review a day dude. Your reviews get featured on the home page in the most recent reviews section, and every time a new review is posted it pushes another one off the page, so keep it to a minimum of one a day. Also, where the hell is this streaming? Gotta post a link to the stream in the comments man, you don't want your reviews getting taken down.

It may not be a rule, but it's just common courtesy.

no dramas, I won't do it again. For the physical CD, I believe it is the correct date.

I love the album art. It's awesome.

Dunno what its origins are but it wasn't originally designed for this album, I'm pretty sure.

Ocean Eyes had a couple of decent tracks, but I'll probably skip this

Almost forgot, here's some feedback on the actual review. Your Bloc Party review was awesome, but this review is shit dude. It's way too short, and every sentence is turned into a paragraph, this seems like a soundoff. You don't really justify a reason for why it's so bad that it constitutes a rating of a 1 either. In the first sentence you share a past experience and write in first person, that looks very strange in a review, and very unprofessional sounding. Also, the last two sentences don't say much of anything and read like something I'd find in a YouTube comment.

This is actually due for release on August 20, 2012 instead of August 20, 2011.
