Editorial Reviews

In October 2012, Mars premiered the first single, "Locked Out of Heaven," from his highly-anticipated sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox. On October 20th, Mars made his comeback to national television when he joined the elite club of hosts and performers for Saturday Night Live alongside the likes of Mick Jagger, Justin Timberlake and Elton John. Mars not only showcased his comedic talent to the millions watching, but also debuted the first live performance of "Locked Out of Heaven" and premiered a brand new song, "Young Girls," from the historic stage in New York City.

For Unorthodox Jukebox, Mars and his songwriting/production team The Smeezingtons (Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine) partnered with heavyweight producers including Jeff Bhasker, Mark Ronson and Diplo to create the 10-track album.

Biography

It’s better if you don’t understand; just listen and have a good time. That’s the response Bruno Mars will give you with a smile when asked to describe his sound and music. He would much rather sing, perform, and write his songs than talk about them, but that is becoming more and more unavoidable these days. It might seem that Mars appeared out of nowhere, co-writing, ... Read more in Amazon's Bruno Mars Store

Simply put, Bruno Mars' Unorthodox Jukebox is an excellent album. Bruno stays true to his pop/soul style while showing that his voice is capable of numerous styles.

Personally I don't always listen to pop music, but Bruno Mars' voice seems to have a huge range, he's gritty, smooth, soulful, sharp, and gentle when it's called upon. He does all of this while maintaining a relaxed timbre and cool about his voice. It just a joy to listen to! In fact his style reminds me a bit of Michael and even some of the old Motown stuff like Smokey Robinson.

Although Bruno definitely excels at what are sure to be hits like "Locked out of Heaven" of which sounds a bit like The Police, my favorite songs on this album are when his voice is unaltered. "When I was your man" is a beautiful ballad that really shows his vocal range and is a really sweet song about a man who looks back on his younger days when he should have bought his love flowers and danced with her. It's just a great tune and makes me wonder if I should have this song played at my wedding which is next year...not that I haven't bought her flowers...or for that matter danced with her...I swear I have, but maybe not enough!

Other favorites of mine are "Natalie", "If I Knew" (which is especially old-timey), "Young Girls" and "Treasure".

Overall this is a great album, definitely recommended if you like Bruno's first album, "Doo - Wops & Hooligans." He doesn't stray from his style while he definitely adds some tricks to his toolbox. As usual his voice is easy and brilliant to listen to! I also love that this music isn't overly mixed and lets his voice shine through. Yeah Bruno!

So how do you follow up to a debut album that had nearly half the songs released as singles, two of which "Grenade" and "Just the Way You Are" hitting #1?

Upon first hearing "Locked out of Heaven" and then seeing the album cover featuring a Gorilla in front of a jukebox, I was very worried that the pressure put on Bruno was all too much... That is until I listened to the entire cd (steamed on his website) and then realized the brilliance of it all.

Unorthodox Jukebox is as Bruno mentioned in a recent interview, "taking all I've learned in the past two years and pushing myself lyrically, musically, and having fun creatively..." The result - 10 track collection that crosses many genres and styles appealing to the widest possible fan-base. If you want old-school, listen to "If I Knew." Reggae, "Show Me", 80s dance music reminiscent of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, "Moonshine" and power ballads like "Talking to the Moon", hear "When I was Your Man" (already slated as the next proper single) "Young Girls" and "Natalie" are sure to be future classics and show Bruno at his finest, delivering upbeat pop songs with extremely catchy hooks....

I strongly recommend purchasing the DELUXE EXCLUSIVE EDITION (which sadly is available only from another U.S. retailer) as it includes an additional 5 tracks, which give you a more complete picture behind the making of this album.

Track 11 features a debut with Esperanza Spalding called, "Old and Crazy", Tracks 12-13 are the original demo versions (vocal and guitar) to "Gorilla" and "Young Girls" while tracks 14-15 are two excellent remixes: the bass-driven remix of "Moonshine" by the Futuristics and a reggae infused mix by Diplo of "Locked Out of Heaven."

I am admittedly late to the Bruno Mars party but I am glad to be here. I had seen him perform a few times on TV and always found him interesting. I accidentally saw him open SNL and I was hooked. Later in that same show I was totally mesmerized when he performed Locked Out of Heaven. His charm kept me watching. Having bought this CD his voice, music and lyrics keep me listening. He is truly talented.
As usual Amazon delivered pronto as promised and the merchandise was in pristine condition.

For his sophomore album, Bruno Mars mines a wide sonic palette; Soul, Disco, Reggae, Electronica, Pop, hence the title "Unorthodox Jukebox". The album sounds retro and classic all at the same time.

Lead-off single "Locked Out Of Heaven" is a frenetic piece of Pop with yelping vocals, hints of the Police and adorned with horns and grunts. "Treasure" is a Funk/Disco number with rapid-fire vocals recalling Jamiroquai. The groovy Disco "Moonshine" channels Michael Jackson, while the gorgeous piano ballad "When I was Your Man" recalls Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word", with Mars hoping his girl's (whom he obviously hasn't gotten over) new beau treats her very well. "My heart breaks a little when I hear your name" he sings.

The bouncy "Natalie" builds to an irresistible chorus. "Show Me" is Reggae with deep bass, quivery effects and oddly recalls Musical Youth's "Pass the Dutchie" in places. The menacing "Money Make Her Smile" builds to a frenetic chorus, while closing is the Motown-esque Doo wop ballad "If I Knew". With all these references to other artistes, this could easily have come off as pastiche, but Mars is a talented songwriter and singer whose personality shines through, making this a winner.
