Owl City at Revolution Live September 8

Last month, Minnesota electro-popper Owl City (born Adam Young) dropped The Midsummer Station, his highly anticipated fourth record.

"Hey, if you like my music, tell your friends," Young recently tweeted. "If you hate my music, tell your enemies." Fans responded enthusiastically, and The Midsummer Station became one of the hottest albums on iTunes.

Critics, however, were far less impressed by Owl City's effort. Entertainment Weekly mocked the record, calling it "insufferably mushy" and "relentlessly synthesized" before asking, "Who wrote these lyrics, a man or a My Little Pony?" Meanwhile, CBS News shared a similar sentiment, declaring, "The Midsummer Station doesn't generate much emotion, from either its main performer — or its listeners."

But so what? It isn't Owl City's best album, but Young is having fun. And ultimately, that's what fuzzy electro-pop should be about.
