I am very impressed with this album! Doo-Wops & Hooligans was going to be hard to top, but boy, has Bruno improved.
Bruno has smartly sampled, and has grown as a vocalist. This is evident through the album, which has stepped up from his previous material.
Unorthodox Jukebox has some much higher quality tracks, and more mature sounding tracks too (i.e. there are no The Lazy Song / Marry You momenets). But are there any tracks that are better than Just The Way You Are and Grenade? Only time will tell.
Young Girls 5.6
Locked Out Of Heaven 4.9
When I Was Your Man 5.5
Show Me 5.5
Money Make Her Smile 4.6
If I Knew 5.1
Average = 5.33 --> 6
The highlights for me are Young Girls, Gorilla, Moonshine, and Show Me.
Even though I enjoyed the songs individually I am finding that there was no song that really made me think "wow", the standouts are Moonshine and When I Was Your Man
I honestly feel like I wasted my money - I don't know why he tries to cover every genre, that was what I didn't like about Doo-Wops & Hooligans and what I find to be the weak point of this. Also his songwriting, while great at times, is way too suggestive and I find it jarring. He's probably trying to mature as an artist or whatever but it's still yuck.
I love When I Was Your Man, If I Knew, Natalie and Young Girls but I hated a couple of tracks on here and the fact that it's only 35 minutes long really makes it seem to short. A couple of extra songs surely wouldn't have hurt. He'll probably release five or six from the album anyway, but I doubt any will be hugely successful (at least not as successful as Locked Out Of Heaven worldwide). Just a 3 for me, I'm kinda disappointed to be honest.
Geen enkel nummer vind ik slecht vandaar 5*Laatst gewijzigd: 23/02/2013 18:44
Net als de voorganger "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" blijkt ook deze opvolger weer een schot in de roos te zijn voor Bruno Mars. Al zijn alle nummers even sterk, toch lijkt me een totaalscore van vier sterren wel gerechtvaardigd. In de marge wil ik nog vermelden dat ik niet in alle nummers een voorstander ben van de vocals van Bruno.
1. Young Girls: 4
2. Locked Out Of Heaven: 5
3. Gorilla: 3+
4. Treasure: 4
5. Moonshine: 4
6. When I Was Your Man: 4
7. Natalie: 4
8. Show Me: 4
9. Money Make Her Smile: 3+
10. If I Knew: 3+
Opnieuw een vlot studioalbum van de "Amerikaanse" zanger, schrijver en muziekproducent "Peter Gene Hernandez" ofwel kortweg "Bruno Mars"!! Helemaal in de lijn van het vorige album "Doo-Wops & Hooligans"!! Afgerond 4 sterren, hoor!! Dik voldoende, dus!! ☺
I distinctly remember grooving to this when I first got it all on the back of the excellent 'Locked out of Heaven' and I was thinking maybe Bruno has done what so many male R&B pop singers haven't done, be consistant.
Now i'm a sucker for his singles generally but the album as a whole is pretty much filler except for the delightful 'Moonshine'.
Definitely not better than his first offering but becomes tiring very quickly.
Bruno Mars has matured as an artist and this is evident in this album with its themes. However, if you're a kid, some of themes here are inappropriate for you.
