Before Superbowl 48 I never heard of Bruno Mars. Then his Halftime performance. !WOW! He describes it best "NAILED IT". After the game I orderd his 2 CD's and he nailed it with them also. His voice is a Gritty Tenor, nice range and a Silky Soulful texture. He does not muffle his lyrics, you understand everything he say and you want to understand what he is saying. They are more than cute Hooks they are real life Rhapsodies of a Romantic. Oh so refreshing. If these guys can steer clear of the trappings that go with fame and fortune they should have a long and successful career.
After hearing "Billionaire" and "Just The Way You Are", I decided to make a leap and purchase this album. I'm not usually a fan of mainstream pop artists, but I was absolutely blown away by this album, from start to finish! Bruno presents a style that's both easy going yet makes you wanna jump up and start dancing. He and his production team masterfully create songs that are very easy to listen to and enjoy, and just make you feel good. Even the more "emo" tracks ("Grenade", "Talking to the Moon", "Liquor Store Blues") have a lighthearted feel to them. Nothing groundbreaking or challenging here, just allow yourself to be serenaded by Bruno's carefree notes and you will be very satisfied. Favorites: "Runaway Baby", "Marry You", "The Other Side"
Bruno is a fun listen. My wife loves everything on the album and I bought it for the songs I like best. Grenade, and Just the Way You Are are wonderful passionate songs. Marry You is sweet and I expected to see people using it in wedding proposals months ago. The Lazy Song is my anthem. I long for days like that. All of his songs on this album are listenable and I haven't skipped over one yet. I look forward to hearing his future efforts. His new album is good, but I've only heard one song from it and it didn't grab me like Grenade or Just the Way You Are.
Fantastic CD...bought at Amazon.com...and rushed to me within days. Bruno Mars is a delight to listen to. His songs are all excellent and have fantastic musical grooves. Do you like Michael Jackton? If so, you will love BM. He's the best artist to emerge in 2010. If this CD doesn't rack up any Grammys...there's no justice. I can't stop listening to this man's music. He's Hawaii's pride and joy...gorgeous, talented, a pure delight. Run, don't walk, to buy this CD. You'll be glad you did. All the songs are great...especially You Are So Beautiful. Make sure you watch this song's video on YouTube...you'll appreciate it so much more.

This is a quality made product and works even better than we expected. Easily installed in minutes and looks very attractive in our shower. I strongly encourage anyone to purchase one who is thinking of an upgrade to their existing shower head.
I'm not really a Bruno fan, I'm just a fan of good music. And this is one of those must have purchase. I have a broad taste of music. Classical, Hip-Hop, Rap, New Age, K-Pop, Alternative, Heavy Metal, the list goes on and on. It all depends on my mood. I was not disappointed in this purchase at all, and if you do the same, I'm sure you wont be disappointed too. So buy NOW!
