Life can feel like a movie. Each mo­ment func­tions as a scene that com­prises a larger arc. Given the big screen-wor­thy scope of his mu­si­cal vi­sion, singer, pro­ducer, multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist, and mas­ter­mind Adam Young projects his ex­pe­ri­ences in filmic fash­ion on Owl City’s sixth full-length al­bum and first in­de­pen­dent of­fer­ing, the aptly ti­tled Cin­e­matic. Pre­ceded by a trio of three­song Reels, the record art­fully threads to­gether dream-pop lu­cid­ity, po­etic rev­e­la­tions, and Steven Spielberg-style eight­ies won­der into 18 new an­thems. “It’s a per­sonal nar­ra­tive, as if a film was made from key scenes through­out my life,” he ex­plains. “My hope is there’s a way to teach your­self to rec­og­nize and ap­pre­ci­ate what I like to call, ‘movie magic mo­ments’, so you don’t miss out on them. That’s what the ti­tle al­ludes to. You have an au­di­ence cheer­ing you on. Every­body is in your cor­ner. Do your best for them.” In many ways, the en­tire un­der­tak­ing rep­re­sents the apex of Young’s decade-long out­put to date.
