An Airplane Carried Me To Bed - Album Review by Jonathan, Teen Blogger

Posted on 05-Apr-17 16:57
Adam Young, better known as lead singer, writer, producer, and - well, everything else - of the electronica act Owl City, is one of my absolute favourite musicians. He has the talent of being able to write songs that leave the listener with a complex mix of emotions, usually with happiness or peacefulness at the forefront and a bittersweet array of other feelings underneath. Some of the best examples of this can be found on the album An Airplane Carried Me To Bed, which he released under the alias Sky Sailing. This album started as a collection of songs recorded by Adam Young before Owl City even started, although they weren’t released until 2010. Because of the different name and relative obscurity, this album slips under the radar of many Owl City fans, but in my opinion, it is some of Adam Young’s best work.

Cinematics - Album Review by Jonathan, Teen Blogger

Posted on 30-Mar-17 11:43
Set It Off’s 2012 studio effort Cinematics is an album that I never thought I would like as much I as did. On the surface, it's another rock album in the same vein as My Chemical Romance or Panic at the Disco. As much as I don’t like using the term “emo,” it’s admittedly a fair description of this album. However, this album is set apart by doing a few things outstandingly well, at the expense of other aspects being mediocre.

Tape Deck Heart - album review by Jonathan, teen blogger

Posted on 27-Mar-17 14:38
As far as singer-songwriters go, Tape Deck Heart is a bit of a strange album from a strange source. Frank Turner is an English guitarist and singer whose genre is best described as “Folk Punk.” To be more specific, Turner infuses his simple, acoustic songwriting style with the energy and brutal honesty of punk rock. That’s a combination that’s a bit tricky to pull off properly, but when it’s done right it creates music that’s hard-hitting, emotional, and downright fun to listen to. Other times, however, it just doesn’t come together properly and feels lacking in both the Folk and Punk departments.
