Billed as the musical project that Adam Young was working on before Owl City, this gave expectations of showing a creative peek inside of Young’s songwriting process. While it does just that, the surprising part is how serious these tunes all sound. This, I guess, is before the lightbulb went off over his head in that dark Minnesota basement and he realized that bubbling, bouncing beats and high energy electronic music would make a heavenly match with his wit. This sounds more like the demo that an artist would make who wanted to showcase his voice, songwriting skills and his ever-yearning heart.

The haters won’t likely get near this project, but they might appreciate dude’s voice and lyric-writing skills more without the blips and beeps of his uber-pop. The Owl City lovers will probably embrace this thing, because one album just ain’t enough to satisfy that Owl City itch, but there is likely to be some level of disappointment when they hear the somewhat somber direction of these tunes.

On their own, however, this is a pretty solid indie rock outing.
