    Owl City is one of the most interesting artists because of their style of music and their creativity, but this album has to much production and doesn't have the originality and is almost a complete copy of "Ocean Eyes" but not as good. I hope the next one will be better.

    The dozen tracks of effervescent, shimmering, faith-based synth pop blend Young's adenoidal, Warped tour-ready vocals with a decidedly '80s new wave flavor.

    Despite it's title and Young's Ben Folds-esque vocals, All Things Bright and Beautiful keeps its beliefs at a distance for the most part. [July 2011, p. 117]

    Soppy nostalgia that bares little else.
