Look I am a huge fan of his music and his philosophy on life he has a real laid back approach to life that is seriously addictive. I must say when I first listened to the album I was a bit like "what the fuck?" his normally fun wordplay and risque lyrics weren't there but on listening to it again the lyrics are simply superb.
The album opens with “The Freedom Song,” a cover and I must say a first Jason Mraz (it was written by Luc Reynaud of Luc & the Lovingtons during the catastrophe of Hurricane Katrina). This track is so and so feel good that it makes this little monkey want to dance (you feelin' me chicky-babes). The next track 'Living In The Moment' is a stand-out and with lyrics like “Wherever I’m going, I’m already home / Living in the moment.” from it's whistling intro to it's reggae beat it's a killer.
'The Woman I Love' is the next track and it's absolutely beautiful track, guitar is awesome, the lyrics are incredible. (now for me to find a woman I love).This song will be a massive hit with the ladies so if you have a date planned, get this song on! 'I Won t Give Up' is the next track and it starts off slow and builds up it's a pretty emotional song and the closest to his previous album, the lyrics are first class.
The next track '5/6' is a cool kind of jazzy track still seriously cool though, we then move onto 'Everything is Sound (La La La)' is Jason Mraz at his best, catchy chorus, cool music and his seriously cool lyrics, definately a winner and a highlight on the album. '93 Million Miles' is the next track starts slow and builds to a soft rock kind of song still cool it leads into the next track 'Frank D Fixer' really well for some bizarre reason, this is a cool song and when you listen to the lyrics Frank is something more men should aspire to be.
The next song 'Who’s Thinking About You Now?' is a cool song again Mraz's song-writing is world class the lyrics are really cool and it's a song that only Jason Mraz can sing. The next song 'In Your Hands' is just beautiful, seriously a beautiful song and one of the best on the whole album, Jason Mraz at his best. Then, we get that sound that Mraz is famous for on this song 'Be Honest' . The last track is 'The World As I See It' which is a great album to finish what is an outstanding album, chock full of Mraz’s upbeat music, intelligent lyrics, wonderful vocals all up this is a great album and will put you in a great mood. Easy to hit replay on this album, which is always a sign of a great album.
The music on this album is brilliant, Jason Mraz is shows again that he is a great song writer and a talented musician. So all up this is a worthy addition to anyone’s collection and I am giving it 4 & 1/2 shots of whisky!
Till next week,
Peace out my bitches!
