I have strongly mixed feelings about both Mraz and this album. I constantly flip flop between liking him and not. He's clearly one of the hardest working musicians out there and i respect that, but it's easy to hear too much of him. I tend to hit my Mraz limit pretty quick - long before a full LP can play through (This one included). Put one of his albums on and it gets old fast. He's kind've a musical polyglot in that he's always mixing several different genres of music. As with everything about him, I like some of his styles and dislike others. His summery tunes and many of his more rappy songs tend to be his best. This one is not quite as rappy as his previous albums, but it does seem to have his heaviest doses of breezy/summery songs and they are by far the strongest on this album. I was drawn in when i saw Colbie would be on one of the tracks. I knew that would be a sure summery tune and you can't go wrong with Colbie. Because of the several strong summery songs, despite the low overall rating, I would venture to say that this album is stil his best to date. Many songs in his catalog and on this album, however, tend to be more of a blend of R&B and/or Funk tunes. These are usually the weaker Mraz songs and drag down every single one of his albums. I also have mixed feelings about his vocals. 90% of the time when he comes on randomly, I'm convinced he's Tracy Chapman. And when Tracy Chapman comes on, I'm convinced it's Jason Mraz. They sound exactly the same. He sings kinda feminine and she's sings kinda masculine. This has always been my biggest pet peeve with Mraz. There are moments on this album, however, that I like his singing and he almost comes off a little like Michael Buble at moments. Finally, I have mixed feelings about his lyrics. Many of these songs sound pleasant or even good, but the lyrics are either silly, cheap/empty or just plain weak. Live High, in particular, was one of the more painful ones to sit through. I enjoyed the sound, but wanted to scream at the cheesy lyrics. In general, if the song isn't one of his hits, it's going to be a throwaway more often than not. The stats are, once again, a mixed bag on this album. The first three songs are solid, but it's spotty at best after that. The biggest thing affecting the overall rating of this album is the fact that more than half of the songs are throwaways. There's 0 five star songs, 1 four star song in I'm Yours, 3 three star songs, 1 two star song and the rest were throwaways. He's never been a "download every song" kind of artist.
This album Jason sang has top quality sound and a kind of music that's hard to come around these days. Thanks for your uplifting songs with a message mists artists dare to even think of producing. Thanks for an amazing album
Unbelievably good music! Unimaginably talented performer! A true breath of fresh air! The "Extended Version" is a must - it has some of his best material on it. Seems you can only find it if you access all of JM's Albums?!? Pricey, but worth every penny and then some. I never rate an artist on anything related to iTunes itself, but I have to say that the garbage filled review they gave this amazing artist and album - comparing virtually every tune to some other artist - must have been written by someone with severe hearing loss. Nearly 3,000 4-1/2 star ratings kinda bears me out on this. The album includes the song "I'm Yours" which has the record for having been on the charts longer than any other single in history (iTunes history? I don't know, but a big deal has been made of that fact). And, golly-gee, a year later and it's still there. Imagine that! Anyone who hasn't watched or heard his live concert based on this album "A Beautiful Mess, Live on Earth" is missing out on one of the best concerts ever. I had the soundtrack nearly a year before the video came out. Watching him and his amazing stage presence along with his amazing band is......... BEYOND AMAZING! Just get it - you'll be mesmerized.
This is a good album. This album introduced me to Jason Mraz, so it took me a little while to wrap my head around it. But that didn't take that long. I found this too be so good I downloaded Live without testing it first
Jason Mraz can always surprise you. He blends vocals ands instrumentals together in a way you don't even notice. He can take a basic rhythm and make it a melody that's just magical. From I'm yours to Lucky, Jason has turned himself into one of my favorite singers. You have to buy this.
I purchased "I'm Yours" 5 years after it came out. This track has stood the test of time and will continue to be played for years to come. It is a very relaxing, toe tapping, catchy and invectious melody that is so easy to listen to and you buy it sooner or later like because it sticks in your head. Nice to have an "easy listener" like this one in my playlist along with "Summer Vibe" by Walk off the Earth.
This album was the first album I really listened to collectively, and it's still my favorite. Every song is a masterpiece, especially Beautiful Mess, If It Kills Me, I'm Yours, and Make It Mine. This is definitely Mraz's best.
hey so i just wanted to right about my idol so here it goes.... i think that jason mraz is tots asome i mean seriously he is boss but really i dont think many people know about this guy cause seriously i ask my friend today and asked wheather she knew what the song "i wont give up" by jason mraz and she was like s\who is that so i seriously thin k our generation needs to hear more song by this guy and by my generation i mean the newest generation (no effence) anyways so im like13, u can prob. tell by my spelling but our generation is all like omg nikki minaj which is great i mean i love her music but they need more country by the way i would tots die in happiness if jason mraz and garth brooks did a song together anyways that my speel so yep well i dont know how you are supposed to end a review so im just gonna stop typing and call that my exit
