Owl City - Ocean Eyes:

Pitchfork Review

Sadly, this review nails it. These songs all sound good, and I would like them if I didn't speak English. I am not opposed to someone sounding EXACTLY like the postal service since the postal service has decided not to make albums any more, but these lyrics are at best average and at worst trite to the point of being offensively bad. I was on the "these songs have very average lyrics" fence until I got to "Dental Care," which is just bad. A song about how much going to the dentist sucks and dentists are evil and like hurting people? Paging really bad stand up... Anyway. This album is rated a 4 for tolerable music, with badly written lyrics about lame subjects.
