4.0 out of 5 stars He Sings. He Dances. He Makes Good Records., 31 May 2008
This review is from: We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. (Audio CD)
Mr Mraz is back and, at the very least, is as good as ever. I've been a fan of his freakish talents for a little while now and was delighted when I found his new album whilst travelling in Australia. Only 1 listen so far, so can't comment in too much detail, but We Sing... seems to follow and improve upon the blend of acoustic pop and funk that Mraz leant towards during Mr A-Z, the follow up to the brilliant Waiting for my Rocket...
This latest album seems slightly less patchy than A-Z, which contained some great tracks but a couple of fillers as well. As with the album's two predecessors, the opening track, 'Make it Mine' is superb, as are the two duets with Colbie and James Morrison, and it's great to have a decent studio recording of 'I'm Yours' finally - this lovely track is the albums flagsip single to date. Unashamedly poppy and bordering on geeky disco or hip-hop at times, this album finds Mraz pollishing his eclectic style and using his smooth vocal range and cheeky lyrics to good effect.
Overall, not life changing, but a solid and worthy edition to anyones record collection. Present Mraz fans won't be disappointed, and for anyone who's not heard his stuff yet, this would be as relevant a place to start as any....
