I was introduced to Jason Mraz by a couple of people. Some American friends of mine who knew how much I loved John Mayer (a LOT!) told me I should listen to him, then my brother brought the album back from the US and played it to me. The following day I bought a copy for myself. Mraz's sound is perfect American acoustic rock, in the same vein as Dave Matthews and co.
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!

A wonderfully new and fresh sound from Jason Mraz. After seeing him live supporting Tracy chapman, I was intrigued and decided to buy my copy from reliable Amazon.co.uk. And wow! Jason didnt let me down. The amazing combinations and concoctions of so many different styles of music give us something you will never have heard before. Think rock, jazz, soul, country and western (to name a few), thrown in with a bit of upbeat and funky styles and Jasons fantastically varied singing vocals. Every song on the album is different from the other, each with individual qualities, some upbeat like the fabulous " Curbside Prophet", some like the wonderful "You And I Both" with a slower tempo, but each guarantees a superb and un-missable first album. What A great buy and definately going to be recommended to everyone i see, whatever taste of music.

Just happened to listen to Remedy first...WOW. This track made me think oh i think ive listened to the best track already, nop the whole albumn has got something to offer.The lyrics and music combine to make a beautiful sound thatll make anyone smile. I think the main reason for this being such a strong album is Jasons absolutely amazing voice, this really is a talent that cannot be taught, this can be heard by listening to his live performances (included on the rare and hard to find live at Java Joes record). My previous top spot was with Adam Duritz from the also amazing Counting Crows.Jason Mraz is that level of greatness and i have no doubt he will continue and follow in their footsteps, a legend in the making. BUY THIS ALBUM.

The first time I heard Jason Mraz was live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, and I loved his music instantly. He's not one of those artists that grows on you - he's better than that. The songs on this album display a mixture of his talent as a singer, all-round musician and song-writer. Spotlights are deserved for 'You and I Both', 'I'll Do Anything' and 'Curbside Prophet'. These songs never get old - I can listen to them endlessly and still love them. Definitely buy this if you're a fan of real music as opposed to synthesised, plastic music.

From coffee-shop singer to a debut coffee-table album - Jason
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.

Jason Mraz has rapidly become one of my favourite artists. Every song on this album is great, and yes, there is a difference between Mraz live and what you hear on 'Waiting for my Rocket'. It does have a produced sound, but this wasn't a problem for me. I discovered this sound first and loved it and so went in search of more Mraz to add to my collection. My favourite album is 'Live at Java Joe's', which really showcases Mraz's talents (as well as Toca's!!). 'Tonight, Not Again' is also worth a look, but if you don't like screaming from fans then you may want to give it a miss.
'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!
