Give it 12 months and you might be taking out a restraining order--Mika will split opinion--but his quasi-soul falsetto is unbelievable, that much is immediately obvious. There are moments nearing syrupy Feeling-esque normalcy (take "My Interpretation"), but those aside it's high camp insatiability all the way. There's a hint of Freddie Mercurys theatricality in the voice, and in "Big Girl" he's even written a modern day "Fat Bottomed Girls". "Lollipop" is Jake Shears leading the Jackson 5, "Love Today" is the missing link between the Bee Gees and Village People and "Relax, Take It Easy" is a chilled Pet Shop Boys in gold lamé. Too cheesy to be a classic, perhaps, but this is just the brand of subversive eccentricity Robbie has failed miserably to achieve over his past few albums. --James Berry
What a fun album! It's like a summertime soundtrack. I heard "Grace Kelly" on a local college radio station and decided to check out the rest of the album. Read morePublished 6 months ago by redhed60
This is my favorite of the Mika CDs. It came in with no scratches and the case was in good condition as well. I was very pleased when I received it quickly as well.Published 11 months ago by Chelsea sears

Mika has been compared to Freddie Mercury and there is a reason. He has the voice talent of a Freddie, and his music style is varied and interesting.Published 18 months ago by Roy Child

I second that opinion -- this is my favorite new CD in several years. Suprisingly, ALL of the songs on the CD are as good as the first single (Grace Kelly).

If you think Davey Havok is original then that renders this whole statement useless. You should have said that in the beginning so I wouldn't bother reading the entire thing.
