It all came together on this album - a significant contributor to 2013 being one of the best-ever years in popular music. The tour was fantastic too, kicking off in D.C. The loss of his mother shortly before going on tour was a catalyst for his emotional intensity on stage. Considering the short creative span of popular music artists (7 years max), this represents his zenith.
I still love this song so much. This is possibly the best love ballad I've ever heard. Bruno's vocals are absolutely amazing and his lyrics are very meaningful and special. I miss this era of Bruno Mars. I'm not loving the 24k Magic Bruno Mars.
it's unfathomable to think this album came out over four years ago, and it makes me so proud to be a fan. yeah, locked out of heaven and when i was your man are fantastic, but you dig deeper into songs like if i knew and natalie, and you'll find an artist whose got it all. live love bruno mars
i can honestly say that this is the first album that i have purchased that i love every song on it. i don't have to skip over one to get to another. i love how each of his songs are different(unique); has its own style. you can feel what he is singing. bruno's voice is just a pure sound that i have come to love that is unmistakable and undeniably beautiful.
THIS IS THE FREAKING BEST ALBUM OUT THERE!!! ITS FREAKING 2015 AND IT STILL TOPS MY CHARTS!!! I COULD LISTEN TO THIS OVER AND OVER AGIAN AND NOT GET SICK OF IT!!!! You can feel all types of emotions through this album; sadness, happiness, joy, and anger!!😍😍 I CANT WAIT TILL ALBUM #3
Bruno Mars wrote what is possibly the most diverse pop album I have ever heard. It is much tougher than "Doo Wops and Hooligans", which I appreciate because I mainly listen to rock. The album samples many other styles, such as rock, reggae, and disco. "Locked Out of Heaven" sounds as if Mars teamed up with The Police to record it, "When I Was Your Man" is a perfectly executed example of a piano ballad, "Show Me" has incredibly snazzy reggae grooves, and last but not least "If I Knew" is an awesome, well-written track with slow, bluesy guitar riffs and beautiful vocal harmony. "Unorthodox Jukebox" is definitely worth the money, and is a great example of what pop music SHOULD BE.
