Background: I'm an old hippie with deep roots in The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, CSNY, then classic 70's, lost in the 80's looking for something "good", found Sting, then Dave Matthews in the 90's, finding the new millennium really sparse and arid. Along comes Mr. A-Z; picked up his Waiting For My Rocket with its bouncy folk roots blended into modern styles and found something at last. This young man (maybe not SO young anymore, he was born in '77 but I was already into my twenties then) is the new Donovan, a troubadour, with the songwriting sensibilities, the wit and wisdom of Lennon & McCartney and Paul Simon, and the open breath of fresh air and happiness of Papa John Phillips. He also has the serious investigative introspection of Sting and the experimentalist approach of Peter Gabriel without ever biting back. I have stuck with Jason through all of his albums so far, he takes his time (like many solid song crafters) between releases, never compromises his art, and always delivers perfection. Most importantly, he bridges a gap between the young audience and old. Everybody loves him, and why shouldn't they?

YES! Is another literal positive affirmation from the man who loves to sing about love. For him, love is personal, and love is world-wide. His last album, LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD was a direct descendant from my beloved Beatles. This album, with its rich folky approach, a marriage of Jason Mraz and Raining Jane, continues his evolution, and has a highly (in my own opinion) affirmative Mamas & Papas feel to it, which endears me even more to the lad. Some critics are already dismissing it and I couldn't disagree more emphatically. YES! is even more perfect again, each album stretching out the distance between him and his contemporaries, few of which I even bat an eye at.

Cool as a cucumber and fit as a fiddle, Jason Mraz is back again crafting what is by now his signature security-blanket pop on his excellent fifth studio album "Yes!"

Thanks to the songstresses of Raining Jane, with whom he collaborates for most of the record, Mraz sounds nearly as earnest and fresh as he did when he first hit worldwide charts (and hearts) in 2003. This is particularly assuring, coming as it does on the heels of 2012's "Love Is a Four-Letter Word," an effort that, while certainly strong and tuneful, found him hitting something of an creative wall. Now he sounds utterly relieved of any burden to craft hits or to maintain any sort of image, and the music itself is similarly free and easy.

Mraz's criminally underrated voice hasn't changed a bit in a decade - for all of its strength, able to employ low, dusky warmth one minute and octave-stretching power the next, he still has the vocal coloring of a doe-eyed high school graduate ready to take on the world. This suits his utterly uncynical style to a tee, as evidenced on "Back to the Earth" or the genuinely touching "You Can Rely On Me." One of Mraz's greatest assets is the natural reassurance and comfort of his presence, and "Yes!" contains many songs that bring that quality to the forefront.

"Love Someone" has an insistent hook that ingratiates itself more with repeated listening. The same goes for "Hello You Beautiful Thing," one of the best slices of radio-friendly pop he has ever crafted - its fancy-free ease and lack of concern for conventional song structure is the classic Mraz that was mostly missing from the previous LP.

"Long Drive" and "Everywhere" have the power to satisfy radio programmers looking for hits and listeners who say Mraz's studio efforts are overproduced.

Yes! is a little different from a typical Jason Mraz CD. He’s always been a great lyricist with catchy music. But I feel like Yes! departs from his normal sound that somehow captures both a high energy mood with a laid back feel. The music in this CD is a little more mellow overall. But his lyrics seem to go to the next level on this album, showing even more depth to his songs that we are used to. (And his previous stuff was already pretty deep. This just goes up a notch)

There are two tracks that really stood out on this CD. The first is “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye” which you’ve certainly heard as a Motown hit by GC Cameron from almost 40 years ago and then again from Boyz II Men in the early 90’s (and then pretty much all through the rest of that decade). This is a far more sad song that you typically hear from Mraz, so it’s an interesting departure. And it’s not just a typical cover. Jason really makes it his own. He really makes this very familiar song sound new. (This song might not be for everyone. I know some people just loath covers no matter what. If that’s your thing, I understand.)

The other is “3 Things”. This one gets back to that catchy ‘hard not to sing along with it’ feel that you’re used to with Mraz. And it doesn’t compromised on the deeper lyrics I mentioned above to do it. So you get that “I’m Yours” type of catchy song that’s just pleasing to your ears and some really solid lyrics that just make this a wonderful song that should stand the test of time.

All told I’m very impressed by this album. I think Jason Mraz really stepped up his game and showed some additional talent above even what we’ve seen from him previously. (And I was a fan before this!)
