Individual Reviews
I will just be reviewing every song individually just to give a short 'preview' of each:

01. Cave In
Rai17's Rating: 4.5 Stars
This track gives the listener a 'rebellious and fed up' mood. It's great for those moments where you're just tired of everything the world has thrown at you, and you just want to get away.
02. The Bird and the Worm
Rai17's Rating: 3 Stars
There really isn't much to say about this track, only that it has an optimistic message, and that one who really isn't a fan of positivity can easily get annoyed by it.
03. Hello Seattle
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
This song isn't technically 'new'; the original version was released a while ago in the first Owl City album, 'Of June'. This version is in many ways much different than the first. It offers an updated beat, and louder vocals The song offers an adventurous message, where the singer pays homage to Seattle (as the title states).
04. Umbrella Beach
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
One word: melancholic. The beat's very bright, but the message of the song lets the listener remember home, and how much of an impact it can have when you're out on your own. A GAMER'S PERSPECTIVE: Listen tot he song!! It sounds a lot like the setting of 'Mother 3'!!! Anwyays, the first time I heard this song, I couldn't help but shed a tear.
05. The Saltwater Room (feat. Breanne Duren)
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
Yet another remake. Yet another way to love a song that was already a good one! This is one of the only Owl City tracks that also includes another voice: The beautiful Breanne Duren! The original song was released in the second alcum 'Maybe I'm Dreaming'. It gives you a bubbly, yet myseriously warm feeling when you listen to it. Like the tittle suggests, it also gives a sea-like sound.
06. Dental Care
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
This song is simply adorable :3 Unless you hate your teeth. This song is probably THE most innocent song ever. Enough said.
07. Meteor Shower
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
The shortest song ever, with the nicest message. It's a nice song if you've commited a mistake, and want to mend it.
08. On the Wing
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
The original was released in the second album, and features Breanne Duren again.
09. Fireflies
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
Don't take in consideration the amount of plays it has on the radio. Listen to it!
10. The Tip of the Iceberg
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
It has a winter theme that I absolutely love. I AM a Winter Man
11. Vanilla Twilight
Rai17's Rating: 4 Stars
Such a nostalgic song... The writer tells the story if his girlfriend that has passed away. True story :'(
12. Tidal Wave
Rai17's Rating: 5 Stars
This final track's message brings courage on to the listener's mind. It tells that 'There's a bright light up ahead, and help is on the way'
Additional tracks are included in the Deluxe Edition [Comming soon!!]

I love Owl City. <33
Your review of each song was pretty spot-on, and you even opened my eyes to what some of the songs meant.
I had no idea about Vanilla Twilight :'(

Loved the review. My favourite track on the album is Tip of the Iceberg. I love it, "I'll travel the sub-zero tundra...".

"..of great glaciers and frozen lakes; and that's just the tip of the iceberg! I'll do whatever it takes...to change.." It's my favorite too xD
Glad you liked it

"Umbrella Beach" is actually one of the tracks that challenge me as a singer. The music video and song itself resembles "Mother 3" so much in Lucas's perspective.

You are a singer?
