Owl City, "The Midsummer Station" (Republic Records)
The Darkness separated themselves from their Reagan-era influences by never taking themselves too seriously, even when the songs were seriously good. Somewhere around the second album, though, the band lost the joke. Maybe that's why this comeback album, "Hot Cakes," feels like a return to form.
"Broken Record," Lloyd Cole's most recent album, shows just how dedicated his fans can be. Eager to make a record on his own terms, he took a page from Jill Sobule, his friend and fellow songwriter, by reaching out directly to his audience. Forty percent of the recording budget wound up coming from Mr. Cole's fans, 1,000 of whom shelled out $45 apiece during a presale.
"We don't even have to try; it's always a good time," he insists on "Good Time."
