JASON MRAZ Waiting For My Rocket To Come (2002 German 12-track CD picture sleeve)
Top Customer Reviews
Usually I'm a bit of a poptart - if you look at my record collection it's full of boybands and girlie singers, so this is a bit of a departure into 'real' music for me. But the thing is, this has universal appeal so it doesn't matter what kind of music you usually listen to. I think, given the right publicity, 'waiting for my rocket to come' will be one of those albums like Dido's 'No Angel' and Alanis's 'Jagged Little Pill', if you look long enough you'll find a copy in every household in the country.
You can't help but be amazed by this album, true songwriting talent and a great voice, and an album where every track is as good as the next. Buy it!
Mraz has come a long way since singing for his supper in a
San Diego cafe.Like Jewel before him he's landed a record
deal and is ready to claim a chunk of the adult oriented pop
market from David Gray.
Waiting For My Rocket To Come is packed with well
crafted,pleasant songs and Mraz seems an awfully nice chap
but,sigh,there's a whiff of smug coupledom to this
album.Songs like Too Much Food,and the funky folk fun of
Curbside Prophet are the missing link between the dreaded
Spin Doctors and David Gray.A void that's best avoided.
Then again,the brilliant Who Needs Shelter shows a
Buckley/Starsailor side to Mraz.This really beautiful song
has the perfect pastoral mood for summer evenings.Sleep All
Day has a light Latin air and a dangerously catchy chorus and
Mraz really lets his lungs go on the slowburning,Absolutely
Zero - a moving tale of friends becoming lovers.The influence
of the Dave Matthews Band is all over,On Love,In Sadness
which sounds tragically like the Barenaked Ladies.
The darker acoustic sound suits Mraz better and The Boy's
Gone is outstanding and the Latin tinged finale,Tonight,Not
Again is promising too.Yet like all the best buskers turned
recording artist,Mraz suffers from over-production on this
debut which often smothers his raw talent.Less is more.
'Waiting for my Rocket' lets Mraz's personality show through but in a more discreet, mainstream version than the other albums. It's a great album filled with upbeat songs as well as slow, melodious tunes. My favourites are Absolutley Zero, Sleep All Day and Who Needs Shelter, but there really isn't a weak song on the album. If you're new to Mraz, try this album first, then his latest effort (Mr. A-Z) afterwards - you won't be disappointed!
