author of one of the biggest pop hits in recent years (fireflies,) adam young returns with his owl city project to present us his 4th long-lasting record, the midsummer station. was last May 25 that young announced the edition of their 4th album, while editing an ep that served to open the appetite? to listeners, one
small sample of what was to come. tracks like shooting star and gold showed us that young did not lose the way to write big pop anthems. another major highlight is the presence of mark hoppo (blink 182) in the dementia track, one of the most personal and autobiographical of the adam young repertoire. The shooting star edition exponentially increased the expectation before the midsummer station, which peaked at the peak with the release of the single good time. this theme, which marks the collaboration of owl city with carly era jepsen - the great pop revelation of 2012 with the call me maybe theme - invaded the playlists of the radios from all over the world and is already considered as the summer anthem. were the applause general - both from the dedicated press and the public - and ?good time? has reached the first airplay places. in the face of all these evidence, we are surrendered to the new work of owl city. No doubt, an album not to lose!
