CD Review: Owl City 

The Midsummer Station (Universal Republic)

Adam Young opens his bedroom project to collaborators on the latest Owl City album, but it's mostly the same whispery quasi-spiritual stuff that made "Fireflies" a massive hit. Despite help from pros like Blink-182's Mark Hoppus filling out the sound, The Midsummer Station doesn't pack the hooks found on Young's last two albums. One exception: "Good Time" the lustrous single with Carly Rae Jepsen that can fuel a hundred summer days.
