REVIEW: Jason Mraz - We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things
Jason Mraz's latest album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things is just what you'd expect from a quirky songwriter like Jason Mraz. Lifting his fans' moods with upbeat almost rap-like rhymes, Mraz lays out his thoughts in an eclectic way.
Featuring his single I'm Yours, a pledge to another from in front of the bathroom mirror, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things has a great balance of care-free living and unending contemplation.
Lucky, Mraz's duet with Colbie Callait is a slower, melodic song with some decent harmonies and on The Dynamo of Volition, with a quick tongue, Mraz will have you "twisting up a Rizla" before its all over.
Only Human, showing Mraz's hippier side, gives a unique look at humanity by cleverly listing out problems with humanity and sarcastically justifying them by being "only human."
As an album, the songs are laid out in a good order to give you smooth transitions between the battling styles.
4 out of 5 Stars
