2.0 poorSandwichBubble | March 30th 16

Enough sugar and gloss to put you in a coma, or at least put you to sleep.

While 'Fireflies' has given Adam Young somewhat of a it's-cool-to-hate-him reputation based on its similarities to indie electronic group The Postal Service, before 'Fireflies' was even an idea there was this album.r"Maybe I'm Dreaming" is my personal favourite Owl City album, as it best captures what Adam Young is best at: dreamy synth melodies that carry you off to another world.rThis is most evident on tracks like 'Air Traffic' and 'Early Birdie'. The former is slow and simple, but melodically and vocally gorgeous. The latter is more of an upbeat glitch-inspired track about seeing sights and enjoying the world.rEven the romance of the album is far different from contemporary artists. 'The Saltwater Room', 'The Technicolor Phase' and 'I'll Meet You There' manage to combine abstract poetry with honest love (whether romantic or not) to create something much more honest and pure than the calculated love songs of today.rThen there are tracks that are just pure fun and joy. 'Rainbow Veins', 'Super Honeymoon', 'West Coast Friendship' and so on show Young's over-joyous approach to life and the world, which makes it incredibly hard not to just feel happy and blissful when you get swept up in them.rAll that being said, the album's na´vetÚ and abstract lyricism turns a lot of people away, so you have to come at it with an open mind. But for everything above, I give it a 4.5/5, even though few will agree.

The dreamy lyrics, the honeynut tunes and melodies and the ability to think have captured me. Maybe I'm Dreaming.

0.0 Avirov | June 21st 09

A pleasant electropop fest with a nice variety of instruments and textures heavily driven by energetic digitized vocals. Maybe I'm Dreaming may not be anything special but it still merits a fun, soothing listen.

4.0 excellentbeezay | April 17th 09

Really great cd. Very relaxing and calm to listen to. Altogether a great cd, but most of the songs sound very similar. But it's to be expected because of the genre being electronica.
