2.0 poorSupertails | August 11th 12

I'd said before that Owl City is the opposite of calculated pop, and that "All Things Bright and Beautiful" was step 1.5 (continuing off of Ocean Eyes) in his move *towards* calculated pop. Well, this is where it becomes it.r'Shooting Star' is pure euro-dance pop, with generic lyrics about shining brighter than a shooting star, etc. Which is fine if you like that sort of thingr'Dementia' isn't terrible, but it's nothing special. Pop-rock with Blink-182's Mark Hoppus lending his vocals to it.r'Gold' is probably the most pure pop song on this album. Featuring all the clichés of a pop single (especially during the chorus) and simple lyrics.r'Take It All Away' is, however, the most boring. It brings nothing to the table.rThe most jarring change is that from abstract lyrics to really simple generic ones. And it's probably the worst. So for those reasons, this EP is not even worth a listen.

Owl City comes out with his teaser EP for "The Midsummer Station", its highlight is Dementia featuring Mark Hoppus from Blink - 182. However, as an Owl City fan, I have to admit that I can't help but be disappointed. His creativity that could be observed in his previous works is almost non - exsistant. "Shooting Star" sounds very similar to "Firework" by Katy Perry..

His so called "inspired by Euro club music" doesn't even come close, especially when a song like "Dementia" doesn't even play like one!
