I lost the feeling of it being special when everyone started listening to it. But they're still pretty good.
Get at me.

Truthfully, I'm not too keen on his music. That's not to say his songs are bad; actually, they're almost avant-garde compared to most pop songs. I just prefer songs with beats like these to those composed by Owl City. Just my personal opinion.

He's ok, but Eiffel 65 were doing the auto-tune/portamento effect a good few years before him. I like his old stuff, and the song he did with Chicane, Middledistancerunner.

owl city <333 i love him so much ^_^ they are one of the best bands to space out to *_* but to be honest i don't like how all of their songs sound kinda the same, the only thing that keeps that band i together is the lyrics.

their lyrics are just beautiful <3

Owl City really isn't a band.  Adam Young does all of the instrumentals, writes, and produces all of his music.  There are stage performers during his live shows, but that is only because he can't play all of them at the same time.  A little fun fact to Owl City fans.

to be honest i don't like how all of their songs sound kinda the same

I don't what it is, but to me the songs don't sound the same.  Maybe similar sounding because they are all electronic based, but not the same.  Each song has it's own personality and meaning to it.  ^~^
Remember that smile, the one you wore with such beauty and grace?  Where has it gone?  What has happened to put you in this miserable, lonely place?  Smile for me, even it may be the last time I see.  A picture I will take not for myself, no. A picture for the entire world to embrace the happiness you once shared with me.  Just smile...

ohh dont get me wrong, their songs are still amazing. BUT when you listen to them non stop for weeks on end because they just so happen to be the hit band in a HUUUGE city, and every one of their songs is on the radio 24/7...things begin to sound the same >.> PLUS msucially speaking, when you look at the sheet music for quite a few of his songs, there are alot of frequent patterns that re-occure in various frequencies in almost every song in his "ocean eyes" album.

i guess ocean eyes is the only album that was a bit repetitive for me, Adam began to change up his work as he released more and more songs. like the shooting star EP?! *screams* fantastic <3

I love their songs fireflies and vanilla twilight! I've got both on my iPod and I get laughed at any time they come on when my friends are listening to it XD I don't care though, I'll still listen to the songs if I want to!  :fox-:P:

(I also kind of like there more modern song "good time"but it isn't like their other works)

Ahh, Owl City, Adam is personally one of my most favorite music producers. His music was a nice range of feels to it, if it be a nice relaxing tune or something upbeat and comical. Plus he has some of the greatest metaphor skills I've ever seen.

I think he's a very good songwriter, he definitely knows how to write a good melody, that's for sure! Although his lyrics can be a little airy fairy...

I'm obsessed with Owl City. That's pretty much the only music I ever listen to. Adam Young is the best song-writer that has ever existed.

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here
