The Mrazberries taste like Mrazberries


I'm not sure how Jason Mraz became a punchline, but it sure seems like he gets a lot of flak. His gums flap like a goofy white rapper as his acoustic strums stuccatto alongside. His rhymes are chatty, altogether phatty, and designed to make you happy. How can you hate on that?

Mraz brings back the love on We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, brings back the head nodding reggae strums, brings back the jazzy pop sensibility behind it all. Brings back the falsetto and the scat, the summery bongos, the smart harmonies. All the things you either love him or hate him for. If you're reading about it here, you know how I feel about it.

the two EP's he just released ("We Sing" and "We Dance") re nice as well, featuring alternate studio recordings of some of the new album tracks
