#seriousAll Things Bright And Beautiful
is probably the best album Adam Young has released as Owl City to date.
Whilst I quite enjoy his other offerings, it is this album that really gets to me on an emotional level for most of the tracks; the bright and poppy sound with lyrics referencing chasing love and never giving up on one's dreams... it fills me with such joy.
In terms of individual songs, I really have to say that "Alligator Sky" is probably Young's best on the album. It's catchy, fun, and has what I would consider to be a fantastic chorus. The song is about reaching for the sky, a metaphor for pushing yourself to further and greater heights, with the alligator being an allegory for how that may be frightening and worrisome at times. It's a fantastic song, not gonna lie.
I do look forward to more releases from Young, although I don't know if he can ever top this album, it's that good.
Is there any music you folkses can't get enough of from a particular artist? I do have more songs and albums like this one that I just can't help but enjoy when it comes on. If people are interested, I'll throw them in a post later.
I am curious, though: what sort of music really gets to you on an emotionally good level? Like, what album or song or artist or band can you listen to and just feel warm and fuzzy with?
