Thoughts?
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.

I discovered them on YouTube on accident.

My favorite song of theirs is The Saltwater Room :mrgreen:

Owl City is The Postal Service for people who don't like music to actually be good.
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments

I find Owl City to be too much of a shallow ripoff of The Postal Service. All the flash, none of the substance.

What I meant was how do you see them being a "shallow ripoff" of TPS?

Because he has the same exact sound, only with lyrics written by twelve year olds.

Reiterating popular sentiments isn't really what you'd call a grudge.

I like both Owl City and The Postal Service for different reasons. :p
