A little too 80's, but his voice always reminds me of Frankie J,
This review is from: Unorthodox Jukebox (Audio CD)
Brunos style is a little too 80's for my taste, but is a good album regardless of my taste in music. This album comes in 2nd compared to his previous in my opinion because of the variety of songs and style on Doo-Wops & Hooligans. Honestly the reason I am so fond of Bruno Mars is because his voice reminds me of one of my favorite singers, Frankie J, and since he's been away for so long I guess I needed to fill the void. Most people have long forgotten Frankie, but he did put a nice album on itunes in 2011 called "COURAGE" and I think that anyone who has been waiting for newer music and/or forgotten about him should really check it out... Back to Bruno Mars. Really good album. Not as good as his 1st in my opinion. But definitely worth buying especially if your a Bruno fan... ALSO IF YOU ARE A FAN, I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU BUY THE DELUXE EDITION ONLY AT TARGET.IT INCLUDES 5 BONUS TRACKS. And remember, cds are always a few dollars cheaper the 1st week of sale so get it cheaper while you can

I agree the 80's were the worst. That's not a bad observatoin, Adam. Also, as everyone should know, the 'Deluxe' edition of the 1st one had "Somewhere in Brooklyn" so of course, Adam might be onto something there as well. I would summarize that for the 1st one, Bruno wrote standards you will hear covered for years. In this one, he didn't.

I wasn't going to be so blunt about the 80's, but I have to say that agree with that statement. There's just something about the people and so called "talent" at the time that just gets at me every time I hear the sound of 80's. Even when they add the songs to movies I think "wow, I don't like this". I have his music before doo-wops and those songs were great. I find myself skipping songs on this cd no matter how hard I try to enjoy them. Maybe It's because I was born in 91' or maybe we can just agree that the 80's weren't as great as people thought it was. "Footloose", "Love shack", "Like a virgin"," pour some sugar on me", "girls just wanna have fun"- Cyndi Lauper, Horrible some of 80's "hits". No thank you. I'm sure there are a few songs I can deal with, like MJ, maybe prince or something haha,but not much. If I'm adding songs to my mp3 player I'm pretty much skipping the entire 80's and Going from Bob Marley to the mid 90's- 2000's.

I don't know Anthony. Maybe someone born after the 80's. I'm 21 now and there are just styles and certain sounds of music that I don't like at all. Two of them being 80's music and country. It wasn't a lack of being exposed either because my dad was all about 80's rock and all that, my mom was about the country music, but I really don't like either compared to the music before and after the 80's.
